We're rounding off a terrific 2017 with our favourite high points of the year. See what the team have had to say below. 

ANNA - All of it!

"My highlight is seeing the team transform into the most amazing, high performing team Dogwoof has ever had. Our heads of departments, Oli and Ana V. have done an outstanding job at managing their teams, and building an open, fun and hard-working culture. I am the proudest I've ever been of the Dogwoof team."
