The summer is over, the holidays have been and gone and the kids are back at school. For many of us this is cause for celebration. The only trouble is – what do we have to look forward to now?
I don’t know about you but here at Finchley Dog Walker I’m a great believer in the old adage ‘a little of what you fancy does you good’. By that I mean taking enjoyment in life where you can find it, preferably in small doses, and this applies to holidays and days away. Holidays during the summertime are great with the chance to get away from the daily grind to spend quality family and friends time and, if you’re lucky the weather will be fantastic. But there is lots of fun to be had during the autumn and winter months too.
With or Without the Dog?
Many of the major holiday camps stay open for most of the year nowadays, so you could hire a caravan or pack up the camping gear. Either way you can stay snug as a bug when the autumn winds howl or the winter frosts strike in the early mornings. You can hire a cottage fairly cheaply during the off-peak season and lock yourself away for a few days too.
Autumn/Winter breaks can be incredibly therapeutic – they give you breathing space and an opportunity to just switch off the mobile and the emails and relax. We all need to be able to do that now and again – just to re-boot and de-stress. But what about the dog?
It is permissible to take your dog to many campsites, cottages and hotels but by taking your pet you still have the responsibility of entertaining and walking him, not to mention all the paraphernalia that you have to take with you.
Consider a Pet-sitter
Wouldn’t it be good to truly relax, with no responsibilities other than yourself? You could leave your dog at home and hire a pet-sitter to look after him. Pet sitting services take very seriously the safety of clients’ pets and homes. We can take care of the dog and any other small furries, water the plants, and pick up the post – all the little things that keep your home safe. Plus, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing your dog is happy in his own home, with his usual routine.
