What our members say

“BorrowMyDoggy is the best antidepressant ever. I’ve matched with four dogs, Coco, Dotty, Monty and Leela, and I love them all! I try and walk each of them at least once a week and they bring me great fun and are a fantastic way of keeping fit!” - Coco, Dotty, Monty and Leela’s borrower, Jenny.

I have osteoarthritis and sometimes struggle to walk, so even though I take my dog, George, out most days, it’s not for long walks, more of a run in the park. I joined BorrowMyDoggy as I wanted George to be able to socialise with other people and dogs. His borrower, Katie, has been wonderful and George is always so happy to go with her. It’s a wonderful arrangement and we’re very happy!” - George’s owner, Angie.
