What our members say

"I was looking for a new friend so I went on BorrowMyDoggy and found cuddly Dudley! We had our first meeting a few weeks ago and I reckon we hit it off. He's a handsome four year old Retriever. I took him to the park and the woods and still he wanted more so we walked by the muddy river - and brought most of it home to my carpet! His owner is a very fit marathon runner so he's used to a faster pace than he gets from yours truly. He seemed very happy and loves to be petted. What more could I expect on a first date?" Dudley's borrower, David.

“Nolly is a rescue girl and in our first year we spent nearly of our time together getting to know each other. I then decided she would benefit from being other people and after doing some research joined BorrowMyDoggy. We met a lovely 'borrower' a couple of weeks ago and it was an instant bonding between us all! I was nervous the first time Nolly went on her walk without me but I needn't have worried. I sense it’s going to give her so much more confidence and independence away from her Mum.” - Nolly’s owner, Janis.
