It's always hard to get short term dog minder bookings. As a dog owner, a responsible plan is to establish a relationship with a local dog minding business that services your area. Meet with the people that will look after your dog, discuss availability and the exact needs of your dog. Having a relationship with a local dog minding business, improves the quality of your life and that of your dog, when you need to go away from home.
