Hi Can I just ask peoples opinion of this please, I have looked for mindees and most people, will not employ someone with dogs to mind their children in my opinion, though I am qualified , garda vetted in childcare a long time, and above all put the care & safety of the children first above my 2 dogs., the children would never be in room alone with dogs, dogs out at various times, meals etc, just wondered is this a dying trade/ profession for people with dogs? I have been in houses where they owned dogs , minding children, never a problem to me but it does not seem to work for most people. So for any dogs lovers out there what do you do? Thanks for your time.
