What our members say

"I joined because I can’t have my own dog due to working hours. I have met some lovely people and their doggies. My partner and I really enjoy walking and now some four legged friends get to benefit from that too. We love walking Babs and Tia, they always give such a lovely welcome when we pick them up and are so well behaved out on our walks!" - Babs and Tia borrower, Jennifer.

“I matched with borrowers Jennifer and her 10 year old son, Jay, on BorrowMyDoggy and it has been a fantastic experience for us all, especially my beloved Golden Retriever, Max. Jennifer works shifts and can't have a dog full time, but was keen for her son to experience a dog. It gives me great peace of mind that Max is so happy and Jennifer has said how it’s been great for her to get out walking and see her son so happy.” - Max’s owner, Caroline.
