What our members say

"I recently joined BorrowMyDoggy on behalf of my Mum, as my Dad sadly passed away. She owned dogs in the past and still really liked them, but she isn't able to own one now. I've made a great connection with a lovely lady who owns two Dachshunds in Bath. When Mimi and Rio visit my Mum it gives their owner a chance to do things and has made a beautifully positive experience for my Mum in the midst of a difficult time!" - Mimi and Rio's borrowers, Lynn and Ann

“I have arthritis and it was becoming hard work walking my Spaniels, Joshua & Judah. Since finding a borrower, I get to relax a bit and the boys are absolutely loving it! Not only are they both getting fitter, but they are loving meeting new people and going out on all of the extra walks. It’s been so nice sharing my dogs with dog lovers who for one reason or another can't have a dog of their own, and everyone has just been so kind and generous.” - Joshua & Judah’s owner, Lillian.

Don’t forget to take your camera along as there are plenty of picture opportunities of your pup alongside the canal.
