I live in Farmington, I have been watching a few dogs while their owners are away. I love having animals around, just not ready to pull the trigger on getting one full time again. I have an 8 yr old daughter who loves having multiple animals around at one time or separate times. We have dealt with difficult dogs (some who pull, some who don't like other dogs, some who just haven't been trained.)
I do own a cat, overall she is OK with the dogs, especially if they are smaller than her, or if they just don't care about her.
I do work a full time job (7:30am-4pm) and I'm more than ok with having dogs have the roam of the house, or if they aren't trained (or have been trained to be kenneled) I have kennels to use. Note Kennels are only a must use option...I do not prefer to use them.
We have a 6 ft privacy fence that was just put in, and the yard is plenty big for a dog or two to run around in, I don't use leashes unless you have a jumper that could get out. I don't plant anything in my yard (except grass) so they have free run of the yard. Some of it is shaded all day (from the fence) so they have the option to lay in the sun or be in the cooler grass. I do not like to leave any pets outside unattended or all night/day, so even though they may go out for a while with me during the day, I do not leave them out.
If you have any other questions, please let me know, I will get in contact with you asap. Thanks for considering me.
