What our members say

“It's been a great experience because I've been able to explore parts of London, such as Hampstead Heath, that I wouldn't have otherwise. For me, the biggest benefit is just being able to be with dogs again, as I don't often get the time to see my lovely family dog. I've always thought of myself as a "big dog" kind of person, but since spending some time with lovely Doris, I've now got my heart set on getting a Cockapoo!” Doris’ borrower, Emily

“When my dog walker in Highgate became pregnant, she wasn't able to look after Hardy anymore and he became a little bit lonely. Then we met our borrower, Soha. She’s like his second mum! Hardy was already a really happy dog, but now he’s happier than ever. I’ve been incredibly impressed by the quality of borrowers and the support I’ve received from the BorrowMyDoggy team.” Hardy’s owner, Abeer

Hampstead Heath

Hampstead Heath is one of the cities largest green spaces with woods, lakes and hills and is the perfect spot to take your dog for a long walk at the weekend.
