What our members say

"My husband and I had used BorrowMyDoggy as borrowers for a few years prior to getting our own dog, so we were very happy to use the site as owners. Levi is a Staffie/Alsatian-cross, and as he is a rescue dog, we definitely didn't want to use kennels if we could avoid it. Levi has met some lovely borrowers, who have been very understanding of his anxiety with other dogs, and have taken great care of him while we have been on holiday. Levi has been spoilt rotten, and loves BorrowMyDoggy as much as we do." Levi's owner, Claire

"I love dogs but as I work full-time it wouldn't be fair to have one of my own. After a while I received a message from Irene, asking if I'd be interested in walking her dogs! Irene and I seemed to click right away, and I now walk her dogs nearly every night. I get so much enjoyment from their company, and after a stressful day at work it's a great opportunity to unwind and sort my thoughts out. It seems to have worked out well for Irene too as she has someone she can trust to walk and look after her precious dogs!" Daisi, Rico and Hunni's borrower, Christine
