What our members say

“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'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.

“BorrowMyDoggy has been great for two things - firstly, keeping my puppy busy when I have had other plans, and secondly, the socialisation of Nala with people trusted by me as her owner. Nala has learnt to obey the same commands we use, even when delivered by others. 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.

Dog Walking in Gloucester

Whether you’re a regular dog walker in Gloucester or are relatively new to the area there are plenty of places for wakies, here are just a few…

Edge, Valley of Gloucester

If you’re looking for somewhere to walk a dog in Gloucester with gorgeous views and a mix of trails then this is a good choice. Whether you prefer hills or forest glades there is a mixture of both, with lots of trails already mapped out or feel free to create your own!

Coaley Peak

With gorgeous views making you feel as if you’re on top of the world once you’ve reached the top of the point. Enjoy a picnic with your four legged friend and take in the scenery if it’s a nice sunny day!

Haresfield Beacon

Dogs are allowed off the lead here and you can either take a stroll across the fields to the viewing point or explore the woods nearby. Deer are often spotted grazing in the valley so be sure to look out for them as well as stopping off at the catering van which is sometimes parked up in the car park where you can grab hot drinks after your walk.

Crickley Hill Country Park

If you’re looking for dog walks in Gloucester which offer both on lead and off lead areas, as well as beautiful views of Gloucestershire and across the Malvern Hills, then this is the walk for you. There are plenty of off lead areas for your pooch to stretch his legs and enjoy the scenery, why not really make your pup happy by bringing a ball for a game of fetch.

Dovers Hill

For another scenic walk why not take a stroll on Dovers Hill. This is the walk to choose if you enjoy hills and a bit of challenge, or your pup needs a bit of extra exercise. Wander through the forest and let your pooch sniff until their heart’s content, just watch out for squirrels!
