What our members say

"I joined BorrowMyDoggy through a recommendation from a friend after I explained I needed some assistance as found I had to work more hours. I didn't like the idea of leaving my dog alone and I was also finding it difficult to fit in enough walks. I really didn't expect such positive response so I'm delighted to have joined this community" Alfie's owner, Niki

"I’ve always wanted a dog but am only recently in a situation to seriously consider it. I wanted to understand how big the commitment was so joined BorrowMyDoggy. For me, borrowing a dog is perfect as you get all the love, affection, exercise and entertainment from having a dog in your life, but without the tie, so when you do have to go to work or away, you don’t have to worry about them. " Rocky's borrower, Fiona
