Why BorrowMyDoggy?

BorrowMyDoggy is a dog loving community where borrowers help owners take care of dogs for walkies, daytime care, weekends or holidays.

Dog day care prices can be high, by having one of our borrower’s take care of your pup, this not only costs less but provides 1:1 socialisation and much needed fuss for your pup. You needn’t feel guilty about working late or heading off for a day out as your dog will be having a holiday of their own!

We take safety and security very seriously and believe that dogs truly are family members and as such, BorrowMyDoggy is all about getting to know other dog lovers really well before making a match. Just as you would with a dog walker or doggy day care, it's super important to know each other well before a dog is taken care of by another person.

Everyone, including the dog, needs to feel happy and trust each other since each pooch and person is different. Before leaving your dog with a local borrower, meet and greet to ensure everyone gets on well, owners then fill out and share the Doggy Info Sheet. This includes important information, from vet’s name and address to eating habits and exercise routines, to ensure dogs receive the best care possible.

How does BorrowMyDoggy differ from traditional doggy day care?

  1. One on one attention - our matches are made on an individual basis, compared to dog walkers who often walk multiple dogs.
  2. More affordable - traditional doggy daycare can be expensive. Our borrowers help walk local dogs because they love dogs, no money is exchanged between members.
  3. Peace of mind - dog owners can relax knowing their dog is enjoying extra exercise and attention from an insured dog lover who has taken our safety checks.
  4. Local - search from as close as ¼ mile to find a dog walker who lives in your neighbourhood.

Doggy daycare testimonials

“BorrowMyDoggy has been similar to hiring a babysitter. Our borrowers aren’t doing it because it’s their job, they’re doing it because they miss having a dog and they love dogs which is a great alternative to a dog creche or doggy day care” - Caroline, Posey’s owner.
Testimonial of Reggie
“When I got a puppy, I never imagined he would have separation anxiety. This became a real worry for me returning to work as I just couldn’t afford £100 a week on doggy daycare. We found BorrowMyDoggy and now I go to work safe in the knowledge Reggie is having the best day with his borrower, all for the cost of less than 3 days of doggy daycare!" - Reggie's owner, Verity from West Midlands
