Nine to Fido: Rikke Rosenlund of BorrowMyDoggy

Les--Rikke-140314-with-photocredit.jpg

The clue is in the company name but if you’ve not yet heard of BorrowMyDoggy, it’s a scheme where you errrr … get to borrow someone’s pooch.

However don’t fret – the dogs aren’t loaned out to any Tom, Dick and Harry. BorrowMyDoggy is a trusted community of dog lovers where borrowers (often dog-less) help take care of pooches when their owner is too busy for walks, weekends or holidays. A win win situ all round; the dog receives double the affection, the borrower gets their much needed doggy-fix and the owner has peace of mind that their hound is happy and cared for in their absence. 

Not your average doggy business, BorrowMyDoggy co-founder Rikke Rosenlund (pictured right) tells us about her Nine to Fido shapes up running the UK’s premier pup loaning service …

But actually, according to our pals at Paws&Purrs it’s probably one of the most dog-friendly places in the country! Over to you Betty and Liz for your guide to dog-friendly Hackney ….

We’ve held onto this blog post for months, as we wanted to show off these beautiful shots of Basil taken by Tilly’s Studio in all their glory on our new look website.
