What our members say

“BorrowMyDoggy has given us the sense of being able to enjoy a dog again. To have a dog so close makes a big difference and it gets us out of the house. We’re not asking for money - we love dogs and are not interested in any shape or form in doing this for money.” Rufus' borrowers, Sue and Mel

“I used to take Cherry to work and then my landlord announced she was no longer allowed to be there. I couldn’t afford to send her to a professional dog care place - it would have cost me more than I’m paying for my kids to go to university. BorrowMyDoggy has been a saving grace.” Cherry's owner, Elizabeth

There is plenty of greenery for four legged and two legged friends to explore and enjoy. The Lido Bar and Cafe & Serpentine Bar and Kitchen also have a great selection of snacks available as well as water bowls ready for thirsty post walk pups.

Kensington Gardens

While the environment is that of a beautiful English drawing room and the tea some of the best England has on offer, they have managed to keep things cozy.
