What our members say

“BorrowMyDoggy is exactly what we’ve been looking for! We’ve matched with a lovely family and not only does my dog Poppy LOVES visiting them, but I know they love having her because I get messages like ‘please can we have her again soon’. Both families are now good friends also which is great” - Poppy’s owner, Marie.

“I wasn’t ready to commit to a dog of our own, so BorrowMyDoggy has been perfect. I now spend time with Oscar and Honey, two crazy Spaniels who live just over the road. I walk them twice a week, sometimes more, and they go mental every time I arrive! Joining BorrowMyDoggy was the best move for us - we get all the fun and none of the commitment.” - Oscar and Honey’s borrower, Michaela.
