What our members say

“I joined BorrowMyDoggy as a borrower because dogs are family to me. I've been studying in Aberdeen for four years, but I'm originally from Luxembourg and the worst part is that my dogs aren’t with me. It's easy to call family or friends if you miss them, but nobody can replace the cuddles and moments you would have with your dog” Selma's borrower, Laura

“Bruce has developed into a very sociable dog who isn't as clingy with me anymore. I cannot stress enough how brilliant this service has been for us. It’s easily the best money we spent last year and is also excellent value for money. Thank you so much, BorrowMyDoggy.” Bruce’s owner, Nicola

Where to eat in Aberdeen with your dog

Once you’ve exhausted all of the great dog walks in Aberdeen you might want to stop for a spot of lunch, all that walking can be hungry work!

The Long Dog Cafe

This cafe was started when Big Gav, an adorable dachshund (long dog), couldn’t find a place to relax and get warm on a cold rainy day in Aberdeen. Therefore, his owner created a cafe for him. Set in the West End of Aberdeen the cafe offers a friendly and relaxing environment for you to meet for coffee, brunch or a spot of lunch. All dogs are welcome as long as they are accompanied by a well behaved owner.

Foodstory Cafe

From morning to evening, this place serves up healthy, locally-sourced food for all dietary requirements. If you are vegetarian or vegan - this is where you should go. And of course, pups are more than welcome. It’s a short walk from the Aberdeen Harbour so why not stop off after a spot of sightseeing.

Queen Vic

A stone’s throw from Victoria Park is the Queen Vic. Not only is your pup welcome here, but you can also enjoy many a fun evening with frequent pub quiz nights, sporting events, live music and tasty craft beer. Have a great Friday night and save the cost of a dog sitter in Aberdeen!

The Broadstraik Inn

Want to take a long country walk and end with some great food, then this is your spot. The Broadstraik Inn is located 20 minutes west of Aberdeen with lovely walks in the nearby woods surrounding the pub. The food is an unfussy mix of Scottish specialities and British classics. Our favourite part is that they have food and water dispensers at the ready for pets too, so everyone is catered for.
