Testimonials

This is a wonderful site especially for dog owners and dog lovers. I recently lost my dog and wasn’t ready yet for another puppy but did want a dog in my life. Lili and Dave and share my pet have helped me connect with some wonderful dogs and their owner close to me and now I am able to get to go on dog walks again and get doggy love without the huge commitment. This is a wonderful concept for everyone, especially the animals who get even more love and attention in their life.
Thanks to all people and dogs on share my pet that had been part of my healing process.

Share my pet has allowed me, someone who longs for a pet, to experience all the joys that comes with owning an anima without the commitment. After building trust between myself, the owners and the animal themselves, it’s as easy as a message (either via the site or phone) to agree on a pick up time and date. Whether it’s to the beach, around the parks or a snuggle at home, it is the highlight of my week and it is all thanks to this wonderful site!

“Princess” Coco is our chilled greyhound and we wanted to find someone who would enjoy her company while we were out at work. Share My Pet has provided that and we are really happy knowing she gets to hang out with a cool human and is safe and cared for. The service Lily and team provide for the cost of membership is outstanding.

With work being demanding we haven’t been able to have our own dog.
It’s such a great feeling when you have a play date organized, arriving to a hairy happy face wagging its tail so hard it’s barely staying on all fours!
The dog owners are happy their wee friends are out getting the most from their day, it’s a real win-win for the dogs, their owners, and the carers!

This is a great initiative and service, both for pet owners and for people who want to have companionship. My dog Panko is very sociable and love to meet new people and make new friends. He has enjoyed going out for adventures with Courtney and having a snooze at home after.
As a full-time worker, it’s nice to know I am not neglecting Panko, and providing stimulation where I can. He loves human company.

Such a great idea! I have been missing having a furry friend while I was travelling and this was the perfect opportunity not only to get to have some time with an animal but also to meet their lovely people too! Definitely recommend to those travelling, new to an area or to anyone just not ready or able to commit to a pet in their life full time!

This is such a great initiative run by the loveliest people! We have so much fun with Muppet and Snout and you can tell they enjoy it too When we get our own dog we will definitely share them as we don’t want them to be bored and lonely while we’re at work!  Dec 2018

We are now the proud owners of our own little dog called Pipi, and we love sharing her via Share My Pet. It brings such joy into her life. and it’s also great to know she has somewhere safe and fun to go when we are away on holiday. Once you have established the relationship between you and the pet carer, you can relax knowing your pet is with a person that loves and knows her well.  Feb 2020

Share My Pet has given us an incredible opportunity to find a lovable pet here in New Zealand while we’re away from our family dogs in the UK. Unfortunately, our current situation here doesn’t allow us to have a dog of our own. So this has been a perfect situation for us, we got to meet a pet that had plenty of energy and love to share. The website makes it super easy to connect with dog owners who are ready to share their pets. It’s really made a positive difference to our lives here. We spend many weekends walking the dog and exploring the coastlines, we’ve also been lucky enough to have found good friends through the connections too! Thank you for setting up this great website!

It’s so awesome! I was really missing dogs when I moved cities – what better way to meet new people and animals than using Share My Pet! Lili and Dave are really caring and helped me with my profile when I was having trouble.
Special thanks to Jenny and Panko (her gorgeous corgi) who have welcomed me and encouraged me to go walking and exploring with Panko. It’s so nice to be able to have that dog companionship!
I would absolutely recommend this to those who are missing their pets or are looking to have a great excuse to get out and exercise with a furry buddy.
Updated to add: I feel like I’ve not only found furry friends using this site, but also people friends, which is so awesome because I’d moved to a new city and it’s a great way to meet people who share a love of animals

My class has had the pleasure of Snout the Schnoodle in our school on a weekly basis. Snout has impacted on so many of my kids in such a positive way. She would just cruise around getting cuddles from everyone. Share my Pet is an amazing concept for everyone. It has been a pleasure to be part of the programme this year. I would highly recommend giving it a go either privately or at a school. Snout would come in and be very excited to see us. She loved being able to watch the kids from my knee or curl up beside on of the kids.

Thank you for allowing your much loved pet to visit. We hope to see her again next year.
