I grew up with Dogs, My Uncle trained dogs for the military and police forces, Therefor dogs were a big deal in my family, and from a very young age i was taught how to properly care for and love them.
The past few years have been the only time in my entire life that i have not had a dog in my life so it is a joy for me to get to spend time with your furry family member.
I'm also very comfortable giving medication, your dog has any special medical needs.
You provide the dog (and the food - no reason to change your pup's diet while you're gone)...bring as much or as little of his or her stuff as you'd like, but I have plenty of toys, treats and beds that your baby will have a great time!
We have two cat in our home who are very comfortable with dogs. However if you dog hates cats that is OK too. My daughter lives in a the lower level of our home so kitties can stay down there when your pup is here.
My backyard is large for Chicago standards, fully fenced, mostly grass with some concrete. Your dog will be supervised at all times while outside. We also have a small above ground pool that doggies are welcome to cool off in.
