What our members say

"One of my new furry companions Rico is quite a nervous little thing around people, so I feel honoured that he's started to trust me in such a short space of time. I also feel like I've made a good friend in Irene, so BorrowMyDoggy has worked out amazingly well for all of us. Thank you!" Rico, Hunni & Daisy borrower, Christine

"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

Boden Boo & Erskine Beach

As recommended by one of our lovely owners - this is a totally pawsome place for walkies. There are a number of woodland walks as well as a few trails to take you down to Erskine beach where your pup can take a swim. Be sure to pack a picnic as there are plenty of seats to rest while your pup makes friends with the other dogs on the beach.

Dalmuir Park

Extending over an area of approximately 7 hectares, Dalmuir Park was originally a designed landscape. With an abundance of flowers, lots of open space as well as designated picnic areas this makes for a great dog walk especially in warmer months.

Cathkin Braes Country Park

This is a slightly more rough and ready park, perfect if you’re a seasoned dog walker in Glasgow looking to pop your wellies on and get stuck into a challenging walk. The views are second to none and well worth the hilly inclines.

Chatelherault Country Park
