What our members say

"The beauty of BorrowMyDoggy is that people really give Schroedie the attention he loves! It's nice that he is treated as part of the family rather than a way to make money. BorrowMyDoggy has helped us feel happy leaving the puppy with someone else when we are busy and also means Schroedie has plenty of walks even when our life's hectic" Schroedie's owner, Lydia

"I signed up to BorrowMyDoggy as I've always adored dogs but unfortunately never been able to own one of my own. Joining the community has bought a whole new chapter into my life - giving responsibility, friendship and adventure. I've met some wonderful people who I consider to be true friends now through BorrowMyDoggy. It's one of the best concepts and communities around!" Elsie's borrower, Annabel
