Affordable dog walkers in York

9 March 2023

The people of York love dogs, and that’s why BorrowMyDoggy has over 6,620 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 borrower Jo from Yorkshire:

I joined the site after losing my 15 year old Jack Russell Spotty 18 months ago. I have decided not to get another dog yet. I have really missed having a dog around and my husband said that I seem a bit lost! I saw the website and decided to give it a go. Suzanne sent me a message as she noticed that I only live 10 minutes away. It’s been great since and I often walk her 3 times a week. I am currently looking after Poppy while her family are away abroad and loving every minute of it. I have been meeting friends while out walking who I have missed since I lost my own dog. I have made some new friends and think it’s a fabulous idea. If you want to try then I would urge you to give it a go!

And Lottie’s owner, Emma, also 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.
