    when i was looking for  holiday for me and my dobermann i looked in the dogs  wellcome book and a lot of them said small to medum  dogs only  any one know why  as  dogs come in al l  shapes and sizes i think it is very unfair to owners of med to large dogs  like me  i would like to say if you have a holiday home  to hire and say in your advert  dogs wel lcome  it should be any dog  deed not breed  you might even get more bookings  and  owners like me  would have more to choose from and you will meet a lot more dogs

    Atleast there you get to see what is and what isnt welcome.
    Unfortunately the irresponsible dog owners give the rest of us a bad name  🙁

    I think they would class them as Giant – i dont think dobermans are large – but from a work point of view i do charge them out as large……..

    lol you would be suprised……..often older dogs whos owners cant bath them – that and we tend to make a lot less mess and a far quicker job of it  😉

    I do a lot of shorthaired dogs including dobies and weims labs mainly in the spring as the sea salt does dull the coat, I even do a pair of shorthaired Chi’s only because if the owner does the bathing they scream their heads off and are little angels for me  ;D

    yeh – i think there was a post about it while you were away Val 🙁

    pure money making !!!  >:(

    we’ve been to some lovely places with our two – my advice would be to find a local agent who has a few properties and arrange to pop in and see them with your dogs if you can 🙂  worked for me … we are re-booked this year into a gorgeous cottage which apparently only allows ‘one small well behaved dog by prior arrangement with owners only’ infact i would call william and bonnie definately on the medium side of small and definately not only one dog 🙂  amazing what a little visit does !!

    I personally hate Travelodges but one year we had to get to Crufts a day early because a friends daughter had qualified her beardie for the agility and we could only get the extra night at a Travelodge.
    We had five dogs so one walked in when we signed in while we were busy signing in we sneeked the other four into the lift.
    When they needed a night time pee we got all five into the lift my friend went and engaged the receptionist in a chat about hairdryers I took them all out and back while this long chat was had about righthanded hairdryers (the one in the room was on a short cord on the wall  you guessed it the right hand side).
    In the morning one at a time we took a small bag and one dog at a time plonked the dogs in the car rushed past the reception until all five were in the car they were all beardies and the poor girl must of thought we were very weak taking one little bag at a time out to the car.
    So we got five dogs for a tenner that night.
    We had booked a room at Holiday Express for the next night we always use them if we can no charge for the dogs and they don’t mind how many have stayed in them all over the country and Ireland you just have to check they take dogs most do they are far cleaner and offer a great service

    We (me & the Dogs) are off to Cornwall tomorrow.
    Modern well equipped holiday cottage/chalet 2 bedrooms, sleeps 4, £20 per night & as many Dogs as you like.
    It’s bliss, owner has flatcoats & Collies & is into working trials, there’s a farm track for early Morning/late night walkies & the beaches are all quiet at this time of the year.
