Find reliable dog and house sitters

Are you looking for a friendly local Dog sitter or house sitter?

BorrowMyDoggy is a trusted community where London dog owners can find private dog sitters who are local, flexible and want to help take care of dogs because they love them, not to be paid.

We know that sometimes your four legged friend can’t come everywhere with you and it’s inevitable that you will need some sort of pup care. Whether it be in home dog care, dog sitters or a dog nanny you are looking for, there are many options available.

Benefits of BorrowMyDoggy

We feel the most unique thing about BorrowMyDoggy is that we are mutually beneficial to the owner, the borrower and of course the pooch!

What is BorrowMyDoggy?

BorrowMyDoggy connects dog owners with trusted local people who would love to look after their dog. We make it easy to arrange walks, playtime, overnight stays or holidays. Our aim is to help dog owners when they need it, give dogs more exercise and playtime and to allow people without a dog to spend quality time with one. We call it a win-win (or a woof-­woof) situation for everyone involved.

Share the love of dogs

Have fun making new friends. Dogs really benefit from more exercise and social interaction.

Does your dog like ear ruffles or belly rubs? Is he good with other dogs? We recommend giving your borrower as much detail on your dog’s personality as you can, so they can make sure their tails are always wagging.

What is the difference between kennels and dog boarding in private homes?

Whether you are heading off for a weekend break or are away for a longer period of time, BorrowMyDoggy is a wonderful alternative to dog kennels.

Every single one of our premium borrowers have taken our safety checks and want to look after your dog not to get paid, but for the simple reason that they love dogs. Pretty pawsome really.

Dog sitting allows your dog to be taken care of in the comfort of a borrower’s home. Your pooch benefits from one on one care, as well as having their own bed toys and treats readily available to them.

What do our existing borrowers and owners say?

Wanting one-on-one attention and care for their Pomeranian, McTavish, prompted Greg and Kelsy to join BorrowMyDoggy. They shared the following with us, “we used to take McTavish to doggy daycare, but you’re not really sure what kind of attention they’re getting. Now when he’s with his borrower, you know he’s in good hands.”

McTavish’s borrowers, Emma and Lexi, shared how “dogs are just our favourite things in the whole world and when we matched with McTavish, it was love at first sight - our lives have definitely improved.”

While BorrowMyDoggy isn’t a house sitting service, and we don’t suggest you arrange dog sitting in your home, some of our existing members have arranged dog and house sitting in each others homes after building up strong friendships over time.
