Jake and his borrwer Claire

“My two boys would love a dog, but as a busy mum, I know we don’t have the time needed. We joined BorrowMyDoggy in 2015 and met June and her dog, Jake, and there was an instant rapport. June joined because she wanted to give children, like mine, the chance to spend time with a dog. We love Jake and he loves us! It's great to have an excuse to get out in the fresh air, and Jake gets so excited when he sees us - he knows fun and treats are in store! Our two families have become friends, too. We exchange Birthday and Christmas cards, as well as keeping in touch in between visits on general life events. The biggest surprise has been my daughter's relationship with Jake. Before joining, she didn't like dogs, but now she adores Jake and he follows her around. I recommend BorrowMyDoggy to anyone - it's given us the joys of dog ownership and an important new friendship, too.” - Jake’s borrower, Claire from Kent.
