So who are borrowers?

Our pawsome borrowers all have one thing in common - they love dogs! BorrowMyDoggy borrowers often join as they are unable to have their own dog due to lack of time or space. However, they would be so happy to take care of a local pooch because they miss the fun, affection and comfort that man’s best friends provide.

Member stories from dog sitting experiences in Leeds

Luna's owner, Julie from Leeds:

I chose BorrowMyDoggy as my husband and I have a lovely large dog but not enough time to give her the walks she would like and we go out a lot or away for the odd weekend. Our dog has loved the lovely folk who have walked her or had her to stay whilst we have been away for the weekend and also whilst we were in Italy for a while. She was our son's dog who now lives in Central London and can't have her there so she loves being with the younger people who play with her and give her nice walks. The current couple she is seeing she absolutely adores and when we are out for a walk she drags me to their house, which luckily is not far away, and she knows she has a toy box there!!

Meesha and Bella’s borrower Sarah, Leeds:

My partner and I both love dogs, but we work full time so it’s impossible to have one of our own as it wouldn’t be fair. We signed up to BorrowMyDoggy and I’m so glad we did! We arranged to meet Meesha and Bella, two Poodles, and were so excited. We totally fell in love with them! We’re now part of their pack and couldn’t ask for better - they’re ideal dogs. We have totally bonded with them - it’s absolutely brilliant. Before BorrowMyDoggy we would have never chosen to get a Poodle, but we’ve now said that when we are in the position to get our own dog, we will look into getting a Poodle. Walking the dogs has become such a joyful thing in our week. Everyone has stressful days, but if you know you’re walking a dog then it’s so much better!

Martha’s borrower Victoria, Leeds:

We met our borrowed dog, Martha, when she was 7 months old - now, over a year later, we see her 3 times a week! She lives just around the corner and it’s so great that we can help out her owners when they need. My fiancé and I both work and we have a cat, so it’s just not feasible for us to have a dog of our own. A couple of summers ago when I was working from home, I thought how great it would be to borrow a dog and get out of the house - that’s when I found BorrowMyDoggy. I started taking Martha out every lunchtime and we’d have such a good time meeting dogs and getting exercise at the same time. I can't think of a better solution for us, Martha, or her owners - BorrowMyDoggy really is brilliant and I couldn't recommend it enough.

Trevor and Penny's borrower, Laura from Leeds:

I am a dog lover without a dog! Due to my lifestyle I am unable to have a dog of my own, so when I saw BorrowMyDoggy it seemed like it was made for me! I have had some issues with my mental health, and having doggy time has been so beneficial for improving that. Be it a nice long walk with Trevor, or a cuddle on the sofa with Penny, nothing makes me smile like seeing my dog pals. Having never owned a dog before, it has been so beneficial learning how to look after dogs, it has given me a good basis for when I get my own dog! The biggest surprise has been the people! It has been so nice making friends with the dog's owners, as well as the dogs themselves. Being relatively new to the area, it was a lovely way of meeting new people.
