We are a very close family (myself - 2 daughters - 2 cats - 4 chickens), who would welcome your puppy / dog into our home and care for him/her as if they were our own.
My daughters have longed for a dog for years, however I do not wish to take on that commitment full-time for the next 15 years, so what better way to get the best of both worlds.
Our yard is completely enclosed and has sections to allow your pet 'alone time' from the other pets or kids... if your pet wants it.
We live opposite a walking track, and a few street from the beach.... so make sure to bring a lead!
Chances are your pet will sleep inside - so i hope this is okay.... if not other arrangements can be made (but i know the kids will try and change your mind!)
Since I run a photography business from home, I am at home most of the day. You may even have a surprise portrait of your pooch upon picking them up after their holiday with us ;-)
