As a frequent traveller, owner Maggie joined BorrowMyDoggy for dog holiday care because she found kennels “tough” and that her dog, Maximus, would “pick up bad habits”.

BorrowMyDoggy is an alternative to kennels where owners can have peace of mind knowing their dog is well taken care of by someone who wants to look after their dog simply because they love dogs, not to get paid.

Watch our lovely members share why BorrowMyDoggy matches has been a great alternative to kennels.

Our owners have shared how BorrowMyDoggy is a more affordable option than kennels and dog walkers, especially as our annual membership includes several beneficial services, including our 24/7 Vet Line and third party liability insurance protection, which covers the owner and subscribed borrowers when taking care of a subscribed BorrowMyDoggy dog.

“When we go on holiday, we know Maximus is having a fantastic time as well. We’ve become friends with our borrower and it’s nice to leave your dogs with a friend as opposed to a kennel where you don’t know anybody.” - Maggie, Maximus’ owner

Watch Maximus’ quick video to see why BorrowMyDoggy has been a great option for their family.

We take safety and security very seriously and believe that dogs truly are family members and as such, BorrowMyDoggy is all about getting to know other dog lovers really well before making a match. Just as you would if you were home boarding your dog with a friend, family member, or dog kennel, it's super important to know each other well locally before a dog is taken care off by another person.

Everyone, including the dog, needs to feel happy and trust each other since each pooch and person is different. As owner Caroline said,

“BorrowMyDoggy is just like hiring a babysitter."

Before leaving your dog with a local borrower, owners fill out and share the Borrowing Info Sheet. This includes important information, from vet’s name and address to eating habits and exercise routines, to ensure dogs receives the best care possible.
