Affordable Dog Walkers in Manchester

17 March 2023

The people of Manchester love dogs, and that’s why BorrowMyDoggy has over 18,520 borrowers in the area.

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.

Like George’s borrower, Helen from Manchester:

I joined BorrowMyDoggy as I love dogs, but as I work full time I am unable to own one of my own. Through BorrowMyDoggy I am now able to spend quality time with wonderful dogs and at the same time help out their owners, who have now also become friends. Me and the dogs are having a great time and getting loads of exercise at the same time. I think BorrowMyDoggy is a wonderful idea and I'm so glad I came across you.

And Merlin’s owner Ellen, tells us about her BorrowMyDoggy experience;

I joined BorrowMyDoggy because Merlin came from a rescue centre and I didn’t want him having to spend lots of time alone before he was ready and I thought doggy daycare might be a bit overwhelming! I was also previously a borrower and I really wanted to share his gorgeous face with people because I know how valuable the experience was to me. BorrowMyDoggy means that for us as owners, we can do things like go on nights out and get our decorating done without the dog ending up covered in paint (we learned the hard way!) because he has lovely friends who are so happy to have him for sleepovers. Spending time with other people has also meant that he struggles much less with separation anxiety when we leave him with them, as he gets the company and cuddles he needs. The great days out they take him on means he always comes home exhausted (what a bonus!). As an owner I was surprised by the number of different reasons people have for wanting to borrow a pup, and how happy they are to help you!

So what is BorrowMyDoggy?

BorrowMyDoggy is a trusted community where Manchester dog owners can find insured, local dog walkers who are flexible and want to walk dogs because they love them, not to be paid. Find a dog walker from as close as ¼ mile!
