Hi there, I just posted this thread i nthe chat section but realised it is probably better suited here. We have 1 small dog and 1 large dog and we were hoping to find someone in a similar situation who also is not keen on sending their dogs to kennels (the yorkie is very sensitive and I don't think she would handle the siutation well). We would be willing to look after your dogs in our home when you go away for long weekends/holidays if you would be willing to return the favour for ourselves. All we would need to do is let the dogs meet in advance and co-ordinate holidays etc. Both our dogs are friendly and are ok with other dogs too. We are based in Sudbury (Suffolk), and would be willing to travel a fair way if needed. Currently my closest family is in Burnley Lancashire and I could do without the 12 hour round trip! Please let me know if anyone is interested.
