What our members say

"We met a lovely local family with two young girls who adore Monty & Finn and treat them as their own. Both the dogs and girls get so much out of their interaction with each other and it helps us out enormously as well. Everyone wins with BorrowMyDoggy and it really is a great way for dog owners and dog lovers to share in the experience and pleasure that being with dogs gives." Monty and Finn's owner, Nicola

"I adore my borrowed pup Stitch, she always brings me joy and a smile when I see her and she greets me with cuddles me every time I collect her. She is amazing at reading my emotions and well behaved when we walk in the woods, BorrowMyDoggy has been great to help me meet people too" Stitch's borrower, Laura
