What our members say

“I joined Borrow My Doggy not long after getting Lily as a puppy. She absolutely loves meeting people and socialising. As a family, we spend a lot of time outdoors with her but it was clear there would be times when she couldn’t come with us.
Through this site, she now has a borrower who takes her for walks and she often spends afternoons with him. Lily is always excited to see him and they have a lovely relationship.” - Lily’s owner Claire

“I used to be terrified of dogs, but since spending time with my borrowed dog, Poppy, I have a new interest and love chatting to other dog owners when I’m out with her. I walk Poppy once a week, more if I can, and then take her back to ours for the afternoon. It’s great spending time with a dog, seeing their personality and watching them grow. Getting to know the dog owners has been amazing - we’ve met some really, really nice people in our local area.” - Poppy’s borrower, Andrea.
