What our members say

"We joined with our dogs, Wellie and Womble, to find local, reliable people who would be as pleased to look after them as we would be to trust them for a few hours when we're doing something else" Wellie and Womble’s owner, David

"I signed up at the start of 2017 and got a message from Edie and Arlo. We met up and went for a little stroll in the local field where I got to learn more about them and instantly clicked with them both! I feel like I have known them for ages! I now walk frequently with Edie and her comical dog, Arlo" Arlo's borrower, Charley
