National Take a Walk in the Park Day

The idea of ‘Take a Walk in the Park Day’, is to get out, enjoy your local park or trail and enjoy and embrace your environment. The organisers want you to appreciate your environment by taking photos, painting or writing poetry inspired by the natural world around you.

It may be an American event but we we love any excuse to get outside and go for a walk, especially with a pooch in tow!

Getting out into nature and walking can benefit both your physical and your mental wellbeing, of you and your canine chum. Whether you are under a lot of stress and need a break or you’ve spent a few too many hours watching tele this week, taking a walk and slowing down could be just the thing.

As dog lovers, we really believe in the benefits of walking a dog. We not only want to encourage our members to get out walking on this National Take a Walk in the Park Day, but walking with a dog as often as possible.

As a dog owner, you already spend every day walking your dog and lots of these walks probably include parks, trails or fields.

But how about using BorrowMyDoggy to find a friend for your pooch and for yourself? You can meet with other like-minded owners in your local area and take a stroll with them. Not only would you benefit from a change in routine and some company, but your dog may also appreciate the social interaction and mental stimulation of playing with another dog.


Lots of us have enjoy walking round our local areas to get out the house for a bit. Whether it’s a quick lunchtime stroll around the block or a few hours spent in your local park, it’s likely that you’ve followed the same few paths for months now and are craving some variety.

How about borrowing a dog to take with you? You can use BorrowMyDoggy to find a local dog that suits your availability and arrange to take them for a walk or look after them for longer if you wish.

We advise meeting up with a new borrower before they look after your dog, so you can build a trusting relationship and allow them time to get to know your dog’s unique wants and needs. Why not meet for the first time in your local park and get to know a cute new pooch as well as a dog-loving human on ‘Take a Walk in the Park Day’? You never know, you may just discover something new in your area.

Hey there!

Want to hear about a different kind of dog care that both you and your dog will love?

Or perhaps you’re a dog lover who can’t have one of your own right now?

We have the pawfect solution, BorrowMyDoggy!
