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 a 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.

How does BorrowMyDoggy compare to traditional dog sitting?

  • More affordable - borrowers help take care of local dogs because they love dogs, they do not charge for their time.
  • One-on-one attention - our matches are made on an individual basis, compared to dog sitters who often take care of multiple dogs.
  • Peace of mind - dog owners can relax knowing their dog is enjoying extra exercise and attention from a verified, insured dog lover.
  • Local - search from as close as ¼ mile to find dog sitters who live in your neighbourhood.

Member stories from dog-sitting experiences in Leeds

Luna's owner, Julie from Leeds:

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. 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 from 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.

How to find the perfect dog sitter in Leeds

Finding a dog sitter in Leeds doesn't have to be ruff.

First, consider what type of service you're looking for. There are dozens of companies that offer dog sitting services in Leeds, so take some time to research your options. BorrowMyDoggy offers a community of dog lovers who will happily take your furry friend on walks, give them extra snuggles and provide overnight care or (if agreed) even live-in care. Once you've decided on the type of service you need, you can start narrowing down your choices.

Next, consider your budget. Dog sitting services can vary widely in price so it's important to find one that fits your budget. Joining our dog-sharing community has helped other dog owners save money and we can help save you money in the long run. Our annual membership only costs £44.99 for dog owners for unlimited use without any extra fees.

Finally, make sure you and your pup are comfortable with the dog sitter you choose. Schedule a meet-and-greet beforehand so you can both get to know them and make sure they're a good fit for your pooch. Ask about their experience, read reviews from other pet owners, and make sure you're confident in their ability to take care of your dog.

We also provide a guide for a Welcome Woof to ensure you can build a long-lasting, trusting relationship with your borrower.

With these tips in mind, you'll be well on your way to finding the perfect dog sitter in Leeds!
