I have been around dogs my entire life. Everything from teacup poodles to dobermans to a great dane/rottweiler mix. I have a 8 year old bernese mountain dog who is a huge love. I definitely have a soft spot for the big old guys. I live on 3 acres in the Santa Cruz Mountains. My home is yard is full enclosed with a six foot fence and 3 foot gates separating the pool and downstairs yard area. My home is surrounded by the forest on two sides. Wild turkeys, deer, bunnies and birds are daily visitors. The upper patio area is concrete, some shaded and cool. The lower area is grass with lots of room to roam around and play. For the more active dogs we have a road and trails that we can take walks on .
In addition to my dog I have two indoor cats so I would like your dog to be cat friendly. I also have a 4 year old and 16 year old so your dog must be good with children. Your dog should be on flea and tick preventative of some kind since we do have ticks in our area. I have been through puppy school several times and grew up with a show dog so I know some basic dog training. I have a large suv with a step up in and a full third row seat for any outings we might take.
I work part time and the rest of the time I'm getting kids to and from school, doing errands and so on. If your dog enjoys car rides and outings they are welcome to come along. I will treat your dog as I would my own. Lot of attention, play time, cuddles and whatever else they need to feel comfortable while you are gone. We may sometimes go to the beach or for a day trip along the coast! Donner isn't much of a beach dog but he would enjoy the company!
