Attention Puppy Lovers - With This Service You Can Now Watch A Stranger's Dog For The Day

This may just be the sweetest company we’ve ever seen. is a website that matches dog owners with dog sitters, who are essentially willing to watch a dog for free. 

Because let’s be honest…If you’re a real dog lover you’d jump up and down to hang out with an adorable pup, whether you’re making paper, or not.

According to the site, the company's goal is: 

to make a positive impact on the lives of dogs and people by building local dog loving communities.

Be still my beating heart.

Here's how it works:

  • Busy dog owners are matched with well-vetted pet sitters. 
  • You can save money as you find a free sitter for a couple of hours, a whole day, or even a weekend. 
  • Pet sitters get a play date with the dog of their dreams, conveniently located in their neighbourhood.
  • The void in your heart will finally be filled.
  • AND the dogs get to hang with a fun new friend who’s dying to give them a ton of attention.

It’s a win-win-win. 


Borrow My Doggy1

The UK-based organisation now operates all over Ireland and it works a lot like a dating website. 

You create a profile, pay a small fee (£10 per year), and start searching for a match in your neighbourhood. The company even provides a 24/7 vet-line for emergencies.

According to their website, BorrowMyDoggy was founded in 2012 and now has over 300,000 members. 

We’re somehow not surprised.

In between a sea of dog puns, the website site features a pile of testimonials featuring pups and owners who have had their lives changed from the service. Warning: Get the tissues ready.

You’ve waited long enough. Go find your canine soulmate.
