Why BorrowMyDoggy?

There is no limit on how much love you could give your four legged friend so why should that change just because you’re going on holiday.

BorrowMyDoggy offers dog owners a local and personalised way to ensure their dog has great quality of life. Dogs enjoy a happier life by receiving more one to one attention, love and exercise, the borrower is happy to spend time with a dog and the owner might even make a new pawsome friend!

BorrowMyDoggy is more affordable than traditional dog walking or kennels. Our borrowers help walk local dogs because they love of dogs, not to get paid. We know how important it is for your pooch to get one on one attention - so our matches are made on an individual basis.

You can’t put a price on knowing that your four legged friend is in caring hands, and being looked after by someone that truly loves dogs. Whether you are on holiday, have a weekend away planned or get stuck at the office, you can trust that someone is taking care of your pup and ensuring they get plenty of playtime and walkies.

Whether you are looking for a short term live in dog sitter to come and dog sit from your home or some overnight dog sitting from their home, there are plenty of dog lovers to browse.
