How it works

Anyone can sign up to BorrowMyDoggy, whether you own a dog or just want to spend time with one. The only qualification you need: a love of man’s best friend.

If you have a dog, you’ll create an ‘Owner profile’, if you want to borrow one, you’ll create a ‘Borrower’ profile.

Connect and meetup

Connect and meet up

It’s time to message another dog lover and head to the park to meet your new friends. We recommend Owners, Borrowers and dogs spend plenty of time getting to know each other. Owners, please fill out the borrowing info and an off-lead permission form (if you want to allow off-lead walking) so that borrowers have everything they need.

That’s it... get out there and share the of dogs.

Good to know

Remember, BorrowMyDoggy Borrowers don’t charge - they are doing this for the love of dogs.

Typically, our members get the most out of BorrowMyDoggy when they have several dogs or Borrowers that they see regularly. Don’t stop at one!

We try to encourage members to always reply to messages, but it doesn’t always happen, so please be patient and keep trying. To increase your chances, we recommend messaging Premium members who are most active, as they are more likely to reply.

Rarely active

Keep your profile up to date. If your availability changes, update your profile to let others know.

If you have any accidents or dog health issues, as a Premium member you’ll have access to our Accident and Third Party Liability insurance (see full terms) and our 24/7 Vet Line.

If you struggle to find a match, call our help pack. They’ll lend a paw.
