How it Works

BorrowMyPooch matches local dog owners with local dog lovers they can trust, for walks, holiday care, play dates and sleepovers.

Anyone with a love for dogs can join. Borrowers can borrow a pooch for an hour, a day, a night or even more and because we are a community of local dog lovers, there is nothing more to pay.

You can find local dog lovers just like you in three simple steps.

Create your profile & browse your matches

You can browse your matches in your local area and review their profiles to see who you think would be your perfect match – whether you are a borrower looking for a pooch to care for or an owner who needs someone to care for their pooch.

Tips for creating your profile

Message your matches & arrange a pooch play date
