We loved our stay at Must Love Dogs! The hosts Chris and Charlie are the ultimate dynamic duo at this welcoming B&B. Sensational breakfasts and amazing company. You can very easily get wrapped in the ambience of the beautiful gardens adjacent to your suite. This is a holiday experience for both you and your dog.

✅Clean rooms ✅Comfy beds ✅Great hostes ✅Delicious food ✅Fantastic stay Had an amazing weekend trip with family. My pup and I stayed in the garden suite which was the perfect size for us with a fantastic bed. Each room has its own secure yard for the dogs to relax in with plenty of shade and water bowls already full for when we arrived. Delicious breakfast each morning with fresh tea and coffee, and delicious marmalade! The pool was perfect for a relaxed warm afternoon and air conditioning in every room so no worries about getting too hot. Hosts are lovely and great to chat with in the mornings while breakfast is cooking and my dog had a great time running around with their little pack.

We had such a great time. Chris and Charlie were amazing hosts and took great care of us and our furbabies. Upon arrival we were given a beautiful fresh strawberry muffin with some local musket. The home cooked pancakes for breakfast were an absolute treat as well. The wine tour was done by Charlie and a great way to discover some of what Rutherglen has to offer. We cannot wait to come back!

MLD is for dogs, but they let their humans stay with them as well. It really is a nice change to stay somewhere that recognises that our pets are part of our family. Each of the suites has its own secured yard with an undercover area for inclement weather. It was a relief to see that there were no muddy patches for the dog to get dirty in. The yards are covered in pine bark chip, which was clean and drained well. The gardens are well maintained and provide some shade as well. This is not high-end, luxury accommodation but we give it five stars for Chris and Charlie's friendliness and eagerness to welcome you and your pets. Their local knowledge is exceptional. Chris is happy to make bookings on your behalf and this ensures you will receive a very dog-friendly welcome at the places you visit. The chandelier suite was very warm and comfortable. The breakfast cooked by Chris was vast (especially the pancakes, cooked from Charlie's grandmother's recipe) and we get to meet the Chis and Charlie's pack each morning ranging from little Velvet all the way up to Princess the Great Dane.
