What our members say

Borrowing Roscoe and Lil makes me so happy, and I get great pleasure out of knowing that I’m also helping other people, whilst having the best time ever! I never realised how, when you’re with a dog, it opens up this whole new social network - you have these random strangers stopping and talking to you.” Roscoe and Lil's borrower, Mimi

“It’s so much more than a business of dog walking and dog sitting. It's developing a doggy community. If we want to go away for the weekend, there’s people who can look after her and it’s such a better experience than kennels.” Darcy's owner, Rosanna
