My name is Derek. I own a good size home on a third of an acre. I have 2 dogs age 14 a Border Collie mix (possibly Hound) and a Beagle mix (unknown blend lol). The dogs are good with other dogs and will share their dog beds and their food and water (I have 6 total dog beds). There is 24/7 access to the back yard and deck in case they want to lounge out in the sun all day. Yard is completely fenced in and always monitored. Or if preferred leash walking can of course be a daily option. I have an xtra large dog door which the whole panel is removable. Especially in the case of a XXX Large dog visiting. I am usually at home since I am retired and I am 45 years old. BUT in the instance where i have to step out the dogs including my own are locked up in the kitchen/den which is a good amount of space and again pending circumstances ie: someones dog is an escape artist the outside can be closed until my return. I am usually only out to run some errands etc and never too long. My dog Dixie suffers from seizures and epilepsy and had been on meds for 10 or 11 years. so I have experience dispensing meds. In case of any real issues besides my own life saving training I also have a good friend who is a vet tech nearby who can be here in a few minutes. Also my vet and a few others are within a 5-10 minute drive from my home.
Overall the pets have free reign while I am home......on nice days i will spend time with the dogs in the back yard playing and even do so in winter. My dogs love the snow!!
I love dogs and never met one that did not like me ;-) Any questions please feel free to ask.
