How to spend the day with your best friend:

  1. Take them for a walk in your favourite spot. Let them swim if they feel like it and it's safe to do so, get mucky if they have the urge and sniff all of the smells!
  2. Bake them a treat. We have lots of recipaws to suit your dog’s tastes here.
  3. Plan a doggy date with your dog's other best friend.
  4. Cuddle up for a cosy night in, just the two of you. We have the perfect night planned out for you here.

Did you know? Dogs are social creatures so it is likely that they have best friends! It is thought that in the wild, they may have preferred playmates or have a close bond with a second dog.

BorrowMyDoggy owner Susanna met another owner through the site:

“Our dog Molly met Matty through BorrowMyDoggy. Because we are having lots of building work done at home we can’t take Molly out as much as we would like so we have teamed up with some lovely people who are going to take Molly and Matty our together for nice walks and a lady who is training to be a dog trainer who has given us some fantastic advice on training. Molly is enjoying the fuss from other doggy loving people and being with her best friend Matty for some of those walks.”
