What our members say

"My partner and I are unable to have a dog as we have a small flat and both work full time. Being able to walk our new friend Ollie a few times a week has certainly improved our fitness! He's very energetic and it takes a lot of effort to tire him out, though we like to try.I didn't realise how many Owners there would be so close to where we live. I was pleasantly surprised to find that within an easy walk we could meet a dog of any size and temperament“ - Ollie’s borrower Emily.

"We met a lovely local family with two young girls who adore Monty & Finn and treat them as their own. Our children are now grown up so it is lovely for the dogs to be around young kids who have as much energy as they do! Everyone wins with BorrowMyDoggy and it really is a great way for dog owners and dog lovers to share in the experience and pleasure that being with dogs gives." - Monty and Finn's owner, Nicola.
