I am a stay at home mum with two boys of school age. The boys are very sporty and love to play football with the animals we care for.
We always go for long walks at the weekend whether we have a dog with us or not and I like walking while the boys are at school to help keep my fitness levels up. As a rule a walk will be anywhere between an hour and an hour an a half.
Not only do we have a good sized enclosed garden we have a large field right next to our property as well as some very good public footpaths and bridleways.
They will be treated like they are our own pet and will have full run of the house and garden.
We will follow your rules with your dog, for example, if they sleep in the bed, they will be allowed on ours. If they are not allowed on the furniture, they will not be here.
We currently board 5 dogs regularly and most we have known from the puppy stage. Their sizes range from a miniature Dachshund to a large Boxer. One family who moved away from the area, still bring their dog to us.
Critically, we only board one dog at a time, unless they come as a pair or more.
