What our members say

"My daughter was really afraid of dogs, every trip to the park or anywhere where we saw dogs she would panic. I saw BorrowMyDoggy and we registered and found a Bichon Frise nearby that we now walk every Sunday. Sometimes there is another family dog there, and we walk them together. Her previous fear of dogs was a limiting factor in things she was willing to participate in an BorrowMyDoggy has really helped." - Bella's borrower, Samantha

"I joined BorrowMyDoggy through a recommendation from a friend after I explained I needed some assistance as found I had to work more hours and I didn't like the idea of leaving my dog alone. The response I have had has been amazing - with such lovely people making contact to meet him and take him out for me" - Alfie's owner, Niki
