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.

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.

How to find the perfect dog sitter in York

Finding a dog sitter in York 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 York, 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 York!

Dog-friendly York

York is known for its beauty and history, but did you know it’s also a very dog-friendly city?

Your dog is welcome on both bus and boat sightseeing tours, which can be a great way to investigate the area, and there are also loads of wagtastic walks for you and your pooch to enjoy.

Wander through the streets with your pup and visit many of the dog-friendly shops, take in the beautiful Rowntree Park near the centre of town, and head further out for an adventure at Fulford Ings.

And when you and your fluffy friend need a little break from your walking, head to one of the many dog-friendly pubs, restaurants and cafes in York, including Penny’s Bespoke Foodhouse, Fancy Hank’s Bar and Kitchen, and Dough Eyed Pizza.
