What our members say

"Without BorrowMyDoggy, I would have had to rehome my dogs, CJ and Bear - our experience has just been amazing. I've met an absolutely awesome couple who love the dogs as much as I do! CJ and Bear have gone to their borrowers lots now, and when they come back they're always very happy and very tired. BorrowMyDoggy took me a little while to get going, but it's certainly worth it - I've been recommending it to everyone." - CJ and Bear's owner, Jan.

“I met with Toby and his owners through BorrowMyDoggy and have spent the past year adventuring with him at least once a week. He has become a fully fledged honorary member of our family and we have made good friends in his owners too! As a long term sufferer of anxiety, I have also benefited hugely from having a reason to get outside on a more regular basis, as well as having a loyal little furry friend to accompany me!” - Toby’s borrower, Bethan.
