What our members say

"I joined BorrowMyDoggy because as a student living in a rented flat, I can't have my own dog, and I really miss my own dog! Now my boyfriend and I borrow Lola it means we spend more time outside, and Lola has the best effect on my mood - she always makes me smile!" - Lola's borrower, Carys.

“My Cocker Spaniel puppy, Whiskey, is now a much happier dog thanks to BorrowMyDoggy - he has company when I’m out, mental stimulation and he’s learning more at times when he’d potentially be home alone. BorrowMyDoggy has been amazing - thank you so much to our borrowers!” - Whiskey’s owner, Bridget.
