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.

Holly's borrower Joanne from York:

I joined BorrowMyDoggy because I'd really like to have a dog of my own but it's just the wrong time for me to commit to a pooch full time with work. BorrowMyDoggy has given me the opportunity to have great walks and cuddles with dogs in my local area around my own schedule. I love taking Holly for a walk - helping out her owner when she isn't able too get out! It's nice to know that I am helping her out and making a real difference to her and Holly. It's even better to get away from my desk to play along the river! I've absolutely loved meeting so many fantastic people - I haven't been a member for long but I think some great friendships with both four and two legged friends will be formed!

Borrower Angela from York:

BorrowMyDoggy allowed us to have dogs and the enjoyment that comes with them when we wouldn’t otherwise have been able to. The whole family has really enjoyed it. The kids love having the dogs and are always so enthusiastic to go for walks. It’s so much cheaper than owning a dog of our own, too. The owners are lovely and we’ve got on well with everyone we’ve met through BorrowMyDoggy. We’ve found that we’ve made friends with the owners as well as the dogs, which is great. I have recommended BorrowMyDoggy to three different friends and they’ve all joined up and are borrowing."

Cora and Lucky's owner, Wendy from York:

I joined BorrowMyDoggy as I had never left my dogs with anyone before and needed someone totally trustworthy and experienced with dogs. Alison (my borrower) is and I feel totally relaxed leaving Cora and Lucky with her. They come back to us happy and relaxed. The biggest surprise of all is that the service is free - what a bonus!!

Lottie’s owner, Emma from Yorkshire:

I joined BorrowMyDoggy when Lottie was a young dog and now 8 years later we are still making new friends. It means that Lottie has company when I am working - she goes on all sorts of adventures. I am often envious of her social life! During the peak of the pandemic she spent some time with one of her best friends - a COVID nurse who found herself completely alone to protect her family and friends from the virus. Lottie was able to go and keep her company for a few days at a time. Lottie loved every minute of it, and had no idea what a difference she was making. BorrowMyDoggy has connected us with people who need us as much as we need them and we love it.

How does BorrowMyDoggy compare to traditional dog walkers?

  • More affordable - borrowers help walk and care for local dogs because they love dogs, not to get paid.
  • One to one attention - our matches are made on an individual basis, compared to dog walkers who often walk 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 a dog walker who lives in your neighbourhood.
