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 a local dog on walks and adventures because they miss the fun, affection and comfort that man’s best friends provide.

Bertie's owner, Pippa from London says:

I joined BorrowMyDoggy as my dog walker suddenly stopped working and a friend recommended BorrowMyDoggy. It’s brilliant! Borrowers don't charge, it's company for Bertie and the 3 borrowers who take him out seem to really love him.

How does BorrowMyDoggy compare to traditional dog walking?

  • More affordable - borrowers help exercise 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 walkers 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 walkers who live in your neighbourhood.

Posey’s owner Caroline, Highbury and Islington: “BorrowMyDoggy is like hiring a babysitter. Our borrowers help because they love dogs, not because it's their job.”

Cherry’s owner Liz, Fulham: “BorrowMyDoggy really saved us, and I’m so grateful. I couldn’t afford professional dog care - it would have cost me more than I’m paying for my kids to go to university.”

Cider’s owner, Lesley, Bayswater: “We’ve tried dog sitting services, but I’ve found them to be quite regimented. With BorrowMyDoggy, it’s people who love dogs, the way we do.”

How to find the perfect dog walker in London

First, consider what type of walker you're looking for. There are dozens of dog walking services in London, so take some time to research your options. BorrowMyDoggy offers a community of dog lovers who will happily take your canine chum for regular or occasional walks.

Next, consider your budget. Dog walking services can vary 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 walker 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 walker in London!
