My husband and I have had a dog in the house pretty much all the time we have been married and our children were growing up.
Our last dog Jerry had to be put to sleep in January 2014 and we miss her so much.
We hope to retire in about 5 years and spend some time traveling so another dog is not really an option for us at the moment.
By having other peoples dogs to stay is a perfect solution for us.
We have a large garden enclosed and live very close to a huge field and woods that stretch for miles.
A huge park is also within walking distance.
We are happy to dog sit in our home or yours if that is required.
