What our members say

"How lucky we were to meet a family with three wonderful Mini Schnauzers. What an experience! We went on two wonderful long family walks/ got to see how the dogs suit our home environment and even had the pleasure of one of the dogs sleeping on our bed. BorrowMyDoggy for us as a family, has been a real eye opener. I’m so pleased we joined" Alfie, Rufus and Benji's borrower, Amandine

"We have recently found a lovely family right across the street from us that is willing to look after Kookie during the day whilst we are at work. This works well as Kookie is now getting 2 to 3 additional walks per day, lots and lots of cuddles and most of all she is around people who give her attention" Kookie’s owner, Kash
