What our members say

“BorrowMyDoggy feels like it was tailor made just for me! I retired a year ago and have been borrowing Dewi and Dylan ever since - they get me out and into the fresh air, no matter what the weather, and I’m doing it purely for pleasure, not to be paid. I’m so pleased BorrowMyDoggy came into my life and I can’t stop telling people about it.” - Dewi and Dylan’s borrower, Marilyn.

“BorrowMyDoggy has given us the freedom to tap into reliable, kind and loving people who we trust for a variety of reasons. We have met three borrowers for our dog, Bobby, who all offer different levels of care including walks, family days out like picnics, sleepovers, and even holidays. For me, the biggest surprise is how easy it is to make new friends, trust and build up a good relationship with people you are trusting your beloved dog with.” - Bobby’s owner, Lorna.
