  • Local - search from as close as ¼ mile to find a dog walker who lives in your neighbourhood.

Borrower Angela, York: “BorrowMyDoggy allowed us to have dogs and the enjoyment that comes with them when we wouldn’t otherwise have been able to. The whole family has really enjoyed it. The kids love having the dogs and are always so enthusiastic to go for walks. It’s so much cheaper than owning a dog of our own, too. The owners are lovely and we’ve got on well with everyone we’ve met through BorrowMyDoggy. We’ve found that we’ve made friends with the owners as well as the dogs, which is great. I have recommended BorrowMyDoggy to three different friends and they’ve all joined up and are borrowing."
