What our members say

“The dogs my partner and I have met through BorrowMyDoggy have added so much happiness to our lives. We really do love them like our own! The biggest surprise has definitely been discovering that we love the poodle breed - I always thought I was more of a big dog lover!” - Ned’s borrower, Jodie.

“My borrowed dog, Milo, is pure therapy for me. He helps me physically and emotionally by getting me out into the countryside, which I wouldn't do if it was just me on my own, and he gives me the confidence. He has had such a positive impact on my life and I love him to bits.” - Milo’s borrower, Abbi.
