What our members say

"In the four months we’ve used BorrowMyDoggy, we have seen Ernie develop in so many ways and he has completely adapted to a new routine. Ernie now has an extended family of borrowers who love him as much as we do, and we are so grateful to them all.” Ernie’s owner, Dianna

“Borrowing a dog is the best thing I have done in years! I joined BorrowMyDoggy and now borrow Pip, a gorgeous Cavachon who is just perfect for me - he’s the right size, very well trained, doesn’t malt and his owners have adopted me, even though I am 48 and have my own family! Pip’s borrower, Melanie
