Dog home alone?

What do you do with your dog when you need to go out all day? Leave them at home? Doggy sitter? Any in Lewes that are reasonably priced?

We don't leave our alone for more than 5 hours. It's not really fair. They are pack animals and get lonely. A dog sitter who can come and let them out and give them a bit of company for a while is a good idea.

I borrow my neighbour's dog on a regular basis, which is great for both of us. If it's not a totally regular thing (ie your dog doesn't need walking every single day) maybe that's the answer. There is a website now, called something like borrowmydog.com, which puts dog lover and dog owners in touch - worth a try?

I never leave mine alone for more than five hours - and that's pretty rare!

My neighbour takes mine out with hers if ever I can't, for which I am hugely grateful.

Hey, excellent, Dave! I've been really enjoying my excursions with my lovely new canine friend, and it really is a win/win! Mind you, she's incredibly good, always comes when called, doesn't pick fights with other dogs or chase cats and is generally completely trustworthy.

Do let us know how you get on. I think the website's a great idea so I'll be really interested.

We now have a rescue dog!!! She is rather lovely and training is coming along well. She whinges a bit when left alone (we've only left here for 1/2 hour so far), but we will work on this
Dave: I got her for my child as he really loves dogs. Hoping they will become the best of friends.

There's a great dogsitter/walker in Ringmer. I can't remember the name but the vet there would know,
