James is also a repeat customer at BorrowMyDoggy and is totally in love with one dog — Rufus, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, every couple weeks.
“I have a very busy schedule touring, which would normally make it impossible to have a dog. BorrowMyDoggy connects me with dog owners so I can help them out, and enjoy great dog time myself,” James shares about the experience.
He adds, “Spending time with dogs is really important for me on many levels. From an exercise point of view and getting out for extra walks and also to just seeing a dog having a fun – it makes me so happy and is really therapeutic.”
