What our members say

“I’m in the armed forces and therefore travel a lot and work shifts, so I’m unable to have my own dog, sadly. However, I absolutely love dogs so I was beginning to feel rather sad about not having one - that’s when I came across BorrowMyDoggy. I love taking my borrowed dog, Tilly, out for long walks and runs. We've had a little sleep over, too, where she’s cheeky and jumps on to the bed for a cuddle.” - Tilly’s borrower, Elizabeth.

“BorrowMyDoggy is a great way to meet new people and for a puppy to get used to new people. It’s helped tremendously as a dog owner - knowing that our dog, Leila, has someone to play or walk with whilst I’m out gives me great peace of mind and I always return to a very happy dog!” - Leila’s owner, Ellen.
