    It is the first time in 10 years we have had a relaxing holiday. Having a reactive dog is stressful on holidays but this is the first time WE and our girl have enjoyed our break . She had the freedom to run around without any worry of another dog coming from nowhere . Myself and my husband and our 3 dogs will be going back here for our holidays .
