A pets-welcome holiday lettings where five are more dogs may accompany guests is a rarity indeed, usually reserved for large mansions and country lodges. This number of dogs needs that extra space and the huge kitchens that these large houses have are ideal, especially if there is a cosy Aga to snuggle closer to.
Big country manors and mansions set in several acres of their own land easily absorb five or more four footed companions without appearing overcrowded. This may happen for big family gathering where a number of dog owning families meet up for a special occasion. This may still lead to problems with squabbles over who is going to be top dog. There are various practical implications when a group of dogs that does not know each other has to share the same space.
