Default Can I borrow your dog?

Come home from pre-bed time walk with Harry. A neighbour asked if he could borrow Harry. His girlfriend likes puppies and could she take him for a walk. Granted Harry is super cute and ultra friendly happy puppy....but not sure I want to lend him to a stranger. Granted its not the first time a neighbour has asked to borrow Harry. One neighbour even asked the security guard for my details to track me down. Plus feel Harry is not a 'thing' to lend and worry he maybe super cute, but he can have his wild puppy tantrums too and not fully trained to cope with strangers. Plus the traffic during the walk and over Xmas he injured his paws.

Bad idea, right? Go with gut feeling, right?

Go with gut feeling - I would be very wary of trusting someone I did not know extremely well with my dogs. Perhaps you could invite her to join you on a walk with him?

I agree with the others. I had a cat once, everyone in the neighborhood loved him. A neighbor down the street was moving. She came to my door and asked if she could take Roger with them when she left. She was serious!

I think it's so Rediculous when people ask if they can borrow someone's pet. Definately go with your gut instinct because even with people's best intentions, accidents happen.

I wouldn't just hand my child over to a stranger to borrow or my car.

I would just tell them that you don't feel comfortable with our dog being outside your home with out your supervision and that he is not fully trained yet and can misbehave especially when his people aren't present to enforce good behavior.

LOL! I have a funny story for you, my brother asked to "borrow" my precious little Bentley so he could pick up chicks!!!

He's a Crested powder puff and he gets a lot of attention when we go out................ girls always run over and ask to pet Bentley, and touch his coat, and can they hold him.I told my brother he should be neutered for asking such an ridiculous question. Borrow my fur baby, the nerve .....
