    I wouldn't I would be too worried so I would prefer they just play ball or something like that to exercise instead of going out walking.

    I agree, he can live a week without the walk. An alternative might be if you know someone else with a dog, maybe they could bring them over for a play date.

    I agree with everyone, a week without a walk would be fine, especially since you have a backyard where they still can get out and run for exercise, and do their duties. He'll be in great hands with your Mom, and he will be comfortable in familiar surroundings at home.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    As a former pet sitter and dog walker, I find this whole "don't trust anyone" attitude a little silly, frankly. I've posted some advice before about finding a good pet sitter (http://www.englishbulldognews.com/fo...766#post476766). I'm not saying don't do your homework, or "trust everyone," or "who cares?" But most of us would be capable of doing sufficient research to find a good babysitter or nanny for our human children. Why not the doggie ones?

    I have a dog walker that comes every Monday when I have an evening activity and a pet sitter who comes when I travel for work.

    I wouldn't want to leave Tallulah with a dog sitter and not have her walked. She gets antsy if she doesn't go for a walk on one day, no matter how much running around the yard she does. And that's just one day--after a week she'd be a nightmare. She obviously needs it.

    Don't let your anxieties get in the way of what's in the dog's best interests.
