I am a mother of three teenagers, and have always been an animal lover, as they have too. I often take dogs to mind at my house while their parents go away, and give them a homely and loving environment to live, with plenty of cuddles on the sofa by the fire, and keeping them within the family. Take a nice long hourly walk every evening, and depending on the size of the dog, possibly two walks a day. I believe it to be a good idea to bring your own bedding and food, as this prevents too much change, and they have their creature comforts.
I will only take one dog to stay at a time, unless there is more in the family.
