I love dogs, all breeds and types, all shapes and sizes, and have been minding dogs here for about 18 months. For 14 years I had a German shepherd and a collie lab cross. When they passed away, I didn't feel ready to have my own dog again. However, I really missed the company and fun, and just the simple pleasure of having a dog around, so I started looking after dogs in my own home and it was the best decision ever.
From the moment your dog arrives, he or she will be treated as though they are my own. I give them get lots of attention and exercise, so it doesn't take long for them to they feel completely secure and at home with me. It's very important for your peace of mind that the atmosphere here is relaxed and comfortable, so that when you arrive back, you will be greeted by a happy and contented doggie.
I live in Glasnevin and near Poppintree Park which is nice and big for walks and running around in. I know lots of people who walk their dogs here, so it's very sociable, and your dog will always meet a pal to run around with and have fun when they're getting exercise. In addition to the long morning walk and play, w I always bring them out after dinner in the evening for a good stroll before settling down for bedtime.
My garden is quite big and is very secure, with a nice sunny deck area for snoozing on when the sun is out. Your dog will sleep in the house, and you can bring beds, blankets, toys, and all the bits and bobs he or she needs to feel comfy and relaxed during their stay. You also bring their food, and any treats you like.
If you are interested, get in touch with me and if I'm free to look after your dog, we can arrange for you both to come here and check everything out.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
