Heart-warming stories from the BorrowMyDoggy community about leaving 'Pawprints of Happiness' on the lives of dogs and people.
BorrowMyDoggy has saved us a small fortune as traditional doggy kennels are really expensive.
The dogs stayed in kennels, which I was not happy with and then Jasper came back with kennel cough, so I decided never again.
Because I’m not working and I’m on maternity allowances, so BorrowMyDoggy has really helped budget-wise.
The difference between borrowing and kennels is the fact we offer our home, we give undivided attention and we’ve formed a relationship.
When we first got Roxy we used a dog-sitter, but something was missing and it was expensive. Then I heard of BorrowMyDoggy and we tried it out - it’s incredible.
You pay your subscription to BorrowMyDoggy, but the money that you’d actually spend, you would save if you had to pay for a dog walker.
If we want to go away for the weekend, BorrowMyDoggy is such a better experience than kennels.
Having somebody close by for 2-3 hours to walk her is key. With a kennel, they can’t devote the time you want to your dog.
We’ve become friends with our borrower and it’s nice to leave your dog with a friend as opposed to a kennel.
For other dog-care places, I wondered are they doing it because they love dogs or for money? BorrowMyDoggy borrowers do it for love.
Knowing that McTavish is with somebody that knows him so well is just a nice feeling. You just know that he’s in good hands and is getting one-on-one attention.
It's like hiring a babysitter. Our borrowers help because they love dogs, not because it's their job.
The difference is between a personal and professional relationship. Rather than being rigid and inflexible, we work at things together.
BorrowMyDoggy really saved us, and I’m so grateful. I couldn’t afford professional dog care - It would have cost me more than I’m paying for my kids to go to university.
