What our members say

“We met our borrowed dog, Martha, when she was 7 months old - now, over a year later, we see her 3 times a week! She lives just around the corner and it’s so great that we can help out her owners. My fiancé and I both work so it’s just not feasible for us to have a dog of our own. I started taking Martha out every lunchtime and we’d have such a good time getting exercise. I can't think of a better solution for any of us - BorrowMyDoggy really is brilliant and I couldn't recommend it enough.” Martha’s borrower, Victoria

"Our dog, Star, is so much happier thanks to her borrower, Andrea. Having just lost her own very special Jack Russell, Andrea wanted to find a dog to walk until the time was right for her to get another one. She wasn’t sure how she’d get on with a Poodle, having never had one, but she met Star and they bonded straight away! It’s safe to say Star absolutely adores Andrea and the long walks they enjoy together." Star's owner, Wendy
