New App Lets You Borrow A Dog To Walk And Play With

Owning a dog can be quite a challenge for some, especially if your schedule is super busy or you have to travel a lot. But if spending time dog walking or just petting one is what you live for, you might get a chance to rent a dog of your dreams at least for a while.

A new app called Bark’N’Borrow allows people to search for puppies for rent or simply walk in their neighborhood. It helps connect dogs, owners, professional sitters and borrowers who just want some company, leading some to call it an Uber app for dogs.

The dog rental app is free to download and use, though professional dog-sitters can charge for their services. Unfortunately, it does not currently seem to incorporate any sort of rent a pup service involving local shelters. Other similar apps have already met success, like Borrow My Doggy and Walkzee.

Good idea, provided the dogs are all safe with checks made on Borrowers!

I'll be afraid that somebody can steal my dog.

I'm afraid, I'm the party pooper, sorry. This wouldn't work for me at all. 1. My pooch would never go with just any stranger. She barely leaves with my best friends, who sheadores. 2. I'd never give my dog to someone I don't know and trust. And 3rd, I don't think you can 'just borrow a best friend', ust as you can't just borrow a loving chid. Having a dog is wonderful but the real joy are all the loving and silly moments you share in the course of a normal day. A dogowner pay tons of time, money, work, hoovering time and general inconvenience for that joy and love. Walks are nice but really not what matters.
