Starting work, my major concern was Cooper my labradoodle, who was used to having me around all the time. It soon became clear, however, that he was quite happy to see me go off because it meant that he would shortly be going out with Tracey and his doggy pals. This was reinforced when one day I decided to work from home. I heard the front gate open and Cooper went crazy with excitement. I thought it was only me he greeted like that! I would definitely recommend Petmates – as long as you are prepared for your dog to love them as much it loves you!
