What our members say

"I feel like I have known Edie and her comical dog, Arlo for ages! There is never a dull moment on our walks. Honestly, you couldn't write the sort of antics Arlo gets himself into. He is hilarious! Not only does he make me smile, he is also very loving and he's always happy to see me. I will always be grateful that I signed up for BorrowMyDoggy earlier this year because I wouldn't have met this absolutely nutty, but wonderful pair!" - Arlo's borrower, Charley

"It has been a win win for us. I get peace of mind that Millie is having a good day while I'm at work and that Millie is thoroughly loved, well exercised and also benefiting someone else's life. I can't recommend BorrowMyDoggy highly enough." - Millie's owner, Fiona
