What our members say

"I needed to improve my fitness and came across BorrowMyDoggy on Facebook. I realised it would be a great way to get walking while also giving me the pleasure of a dog and also helping out a dog owner too. I chat to lots of new people and I've been surprised how friendly people are on my walks and also the lovely family I borrow Bella the Cocker Spaniel from. I highly recommend it to anyone who would love to have a dog but circumstances prevent it." - Bella's borrower, Caron.

“We joined BorrowMyDoggy because we needed people to occasionally look after Luna when both of us had work commitments that meant poor Luna would be left on her own. Thankfully, BorrowMyDoggy means that our social little pup gets to have fun in new homes every day of the week! She loves seeing her borrowers so much, and we love that she comes home chilled out and satisfied with her day. We were surprised at how many people want to look after Luna. BorrowMyDoggy has made both us and Luna very happy" - Luna's owner, Laura.
