What our members say

“I am borrowing a lovely little dog called Tashi every week. Her owner and I have become friends and all are benefitting from the match. I am keeping fit and Tashi gets lots of walks and cuddles. Result all round!” - Tashi’s borrower, Linda.

“BorrowMyDoggy had been very positive for my dog, Ruby. She’s a rescue dog and can be a little wary of strangers. I work long hours and although she is walked 3 times a day, I felt she needed some more human company during the week. She now has a sleepover once a week and a day with her doggy borrower, which she absolutely loves” - Ruby’s owner, Tom.
