What our members say

“I joined BorrowMyDoggy because, with a new baby, as well as a puppy it made sense for Nala, my Hungarian Vizsla, to have some extra company. It’s been great for keeping my puppy busy when I have had other plans the socialisation of her with people trusted by me as her owner. Being part of the BorrowMyDoggy community has been exactly as I hoped - dog loving people wanting to spend time with our beloved dog.” - Nala’s owner, Victoria.

"My borrowed dog, George, is not only a good companion, but also a great running partner. I'm so lucky to have found such a perfect dog with a lovely owner, too. I joined as I had a bit of time on my hands and wanted to keep myself active. I've always wanted my own dog, but have never been able to commit due to living arrangements. Now I have the joy of borrowing George and I can safely say that BorrowMyDoggy has definitely changed my life.” - George’s borrower, Lucinda.
