I had my own dogs for 20 years. I have been looking after dogs in my own home for some years; so have looked after a wide variety of dogs. I do not have my own dog now. I have a large secure garden - with a sizeable grassed area - which most dogs seem to love. Dogs are exercised daily - in accordance with their owners request. All potential dogs are asked to get their owners to make an appointment to come and visit me. This is for two reasons. Most important it gives the dog the opportunity to view where he may stay - and to meet me. I also get the opportunity to meet the dog and owners. If we are both happy - we see about what dates are requested and hopefully booking the dog in. Holidays for dogs is about the dog having a good time - and me being comfortable with the dog staying. It also means that you as owners, go away with peace of mind that your dog is being well cared for. Potential dogs and their owners are advised to book as early as possible as the peak season soon gets taken.
