Would you like to occasionally care for another family's dog in your home while they are on holidays? Join a professional service that has been operating for 30 years and you'll receive the unconditional love of your furry house guest plus a daily allowance.

You say what breeds and sizes of dogs you would like to mind and are only contacted about dogs that would suit you. The dog will bring his or her own food, bedding, bowls, and everything else they will need while they are with you.

"Don't Fret Pet!" provides you with 24/7 support and they take care of the paperwork and insurance for you.

The dog's owner brings their dog to your home so that you can meet their dog in advance. That way you can be sure he or she is suitable for your home and your lifestyle. Also, you can mind as often or as little as you like - it's up to you.

Founding director, Jenny Brearley, says "Providing a caring home for dogs when their owners are away brings a lot of pleasure to our dog minders. Some of our minders have minded the same dog many times. Their home has become like a second home for that dog."

Many dog owners hate sending their best friend to stay in a cage or leaving them at home alone when they're away. They're always so happy when they find out that their dog can go and stay in the home of a wonderful "Don't Fret Pet!" dog minder. If you could welcome a dog into your home from time to time you'd be helping both the dog and their owner to have a happy holiday.
