I am a mature person. At 50+ years of age I understand a homeowners perspective and why they would consider allowing somebody into their home. Given that rationale I respect the aspirations of the home owner and treat it as it was my own. With courtesy and diligence ensuring I leave it as I would expect to find it.
I am a massive dog lover and left two of my favourite friend's at home in Dublin with my children to commence a new life on this side of the world. And there is nothing like the smell of freshly cooked bread to come home to.
A welcome back to your house treat. The dogs that I have owned and worked with range from Labrador, Shitzu, Boxer, Bull Dog, Scottish Terrier, English Terrier. The really is not a breed I would be uncomfortable with and am really happy with 1/2 dogs. In terms of house ending and ensuring dogs are walked and the house is maintained, I am an avid walker so very happy with 1/2 dogs on a lead and taking them on numerous (if required) walks daily.
This is a huge trust relationship between owner and minder. I will ensure that when you are away that you receive updates as you require without been intrusive. Your house and pets will be treated like my own in the safety and comfort of your home.
