What our members say

“I grew up with a family dog and have always wanted one of my own, but with my job it wouldn’t be fair to have one. After a couple of messages, I met with Buddy and his owner, Jen, and we haven't looked back. I now look after Buddy regularly and sometimes we all go out for walks together followed by a nice cup of tea and a chat - not only have I got the pleasure of a wonderful dog's company, but I have also made a new friend in Jen. It’s a win all round!” - Buddy’s borrower, Carol.

“BorrowMyDoggy has changed my life for the better - I've made fantastic new friends close to home and also saved money on a professional dog walker. We’ve been SO surprised at how many people want to borrow dogs! I now act as Miley's agent, not her owner - she definitely thinks she's a celebrity!” - Miley’s owner, Laura.
