Dog owners
Dog borrowers


HAPPY PUPPY is a dog-sharing community that brings together dog owners and dog borrowers to divide up the overall tasks of looking after a dog, or simply to give the dog an extra opportunity to make friends, play around and run about.

We define dog borrowers as people who like to spend time with dogs, but don’t have the facilities or desire to own their own.

Once dog owners and dog borrowers have identified each other via the website or app, they can arrange a three-way meeting. If the owner, borrower and dog(s) are all happy with the chemistry, the new borrower can spend time with the dog(s), without the owner. Now the owner has more time available for other obligations and activities.

It’s a win-win-win situation all around:

  • Dog owners with lots to do and little time can be sure their four-legged friends are in good hands
  • Dog borrowers can enjoy spending time with a dog without the full-time obligations of ownership
  • Dogs enjoy more attention, variety and exercise
