I have had a dog pretty much my whole life. I have had just about every breed out there and I have to say a Pit Bull was my favorite until recently when I got a Blue Heeler/Australian Cattle Dog. We also have a Yellow Creek Hound that is pretty old (14 years old), but can get spunky at times. All of our pets get the best care and live to a very old age for a pet.
I do require that all pets be fully house/potty trained without the use of puppy pads. The animals have full access of the house as well as the pool and outdoor patio. They get many trips outside to go to the bathroom and plenty of walks during the time they are here. We also have a common area where our neighbor dogs get together every day and play. They get special home made frozen treats everyday and water access always.
At night they will have the option of sleeping with either my son or my daughter or if they choose, in my room. I really think most of them like to sleep with my children since they let them sleep in the bed!
