What our members say

"I grew up with cats, and have always loved animals, so when I heard about BorrowMyDoggy I seized the opportunity immediately and not long after I met Milo. Milo and I hit it off at once and we have gone for long walks and spent whole days together whenever his dad is too busy. Since meeting Milo I have felt happier and more at peace and I'm looking forward to spending more time with him in the coming months." Milo's borrower, Runa.

"I joined BorrowMyDoggy as I wanted my dog, Kanga, to have more than just a walk with a dog walker - I wanted her to have some companionship and human interaction on a one-to-one level, which a dog walker can't always provide. Kanga now enjoys two afternoons a week with her borrower, going for walks and 'helping' with the gardening. She also goes to another borrower once a month when I have to volunteer on a Sunday evening in the next town so I'm away for nearly 5 hours. Without this borrower I wouldn't be able to continue with my voluntary work and Kanga would be a very sad pup! I was dubious at first as I felt like I should be paying someone to look after my dog, but the mutual benefit of borrowing and lending is incredible, and I've made another friend as a result of BorrowMyDoggy." - Kanga's ower, Daisy.
