What our members say

“Our dog, Sally, died in January very suddenly. We weren’t ready to commit to another dog after that, so BorrowMyDoggy has been perfect. I now spend time with Oscar and Honey, two crazy Spaniels who live just over the road. Joining BorrowMyDoggy was the best move for us - we get all the fun and none of the commitment.” - Oscar and Honey’s borrower, Michaela.

“We joined because our dog, Jessie, just loves company and walks. We walk her 2-3 times a day, but on the days where we work, she doesn’t get as much company as we’d like. Now, I love it when Jessie is getting extra company whilst I'm stuck at my desk. The borrower’s love having her, we are so happy to share Jessie with them, and Jessie just loves them!” - Jessie’s owner, Julia.
