How does it work?

Dogshare is a matching platform that connects dog lovers from nearby neighbourhoods. Dog owners upload an image of their dog along with it’s size, age and temperament, then search through other profiles for a match in your neighbourhood. For dog borrowers, the process is the same however the information included in your profile includes a profile picture, your past dog experience and your availability. 

It is free to join and free to use.
