The major dilemma a dog owner encounters is the necessity to ensure a good care for his four legged friend at times when he or she is not able to take care of it himself. Prior to Gudog, the only solution were dog kennels. However, spending time in a dog kennel implies the dog being put under a lot of stress related to the change of habits. Moreover, in a dog kennel the dog spends most of the time in a cage - all of this is not the ideal environment a dog owner could wish for his pet. Gudog was born out of a desire to provide an alternative.
