What our members say

“I joined BorrowMyDoggy after being diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis and my husband needed urgent heart surgery. We couldn’t afford a dog walker and didn’t want Digby to go to kennels, so BorrowMyDoggy was the perfect solution. He’s always so excited when our borrower Elaine and her daughter, Heather, come and collect him. It’s been brilliant for Digby as he is getting the extra exercise he needs, while I am secure in the knowledge that he’s with people who care for him. Digby is happy and so are we.” - Digby’s owner, Cathryn.

“I’m not exaggerating when I say my borrowed dog, Roxy, has saved my life. I felt completely lost following years of very challenging and upsetting events. What’s more, I had just moved to a new area and I wanted to get to know my local community and give back to society. Roxy gets me out of bed and gives me a purpose to go out into the fresh air now. Walking her has helped me emotionally and support from her owner, Gill, has given me hope for the future.” - Roxy’s borrower, Helen.

Dog Walking in Somerset

If you are a keen dog walker in Somerset and want to find some places to explore with your furry friend, here are some of our recommendations.

Black Down, Burrington

Black Down is the highest hill in the south-western England. If you and your pup are up for a challenge, climb to the top to see views of the picturesque countryside. With both off lead and on lead areas, your pup will definitely come home tired and ready for a long nap.

Cheddar Reservoir and Gorge

If your four-legged friend is a keen swimmer, this reservoir is the perfect place to walk a dog in Somerset, and comes highly recommended by the locals. When walking around the gorge, it is recommended to keep dogs on leads because of the cliff edge but it is worth it for the stunning views. It is a fairly long and hilly walk, so come prepared with a picnic in the dedicated spots to refuel.

Brean Beach

Who doesn’t love a beach walk! With plenty of space for your four legged friend to run around, your pup will be very happy. Be sure to bring a ball to throw into the sea for games of fetch and encouragement to cool off on a summer's day. Refreshments are available if you decide to make a day of it.

Ham Hill Country Park

This country park is well known in the area with dog owners, it’s worth a visit. With plenty of fenced off fields, its the perfect place for them to run around with other dogs and for endless games of fetch. There is also a nearby dog friendly pub to pop into after.

Coffee Cake and Curtains

This dog friendly tea shop is definitely worth a visit. With lots of sandwiches, sweet treats and a great afternoon tea selection, your furry friends are more than welcome here. With treats and comfortable beds (for your pup) they will be happy whilst you tuck into an afternoon tea!

The Hairy Dog

Of course this pup is dog friendly, and not just for hairy dogs but for fluffy ones too! After finishing up on a dog walk in Somerset at Minehead Beach, pop in here to refuel with a drink and something to eat. Water bowls are provided and treats can be found at the bar!

Fleur De Lis, Stoke Sub
