We are a happy family in a single family house in the Richmond district of San Francisco. Ella and Kingsley have the run of the house. The entire back yard is covered in wood chips (with plant barrier) so they can play outside to their hearts' content. They seem to enjoy taking smaller logs from our woodpile and depositing them around the yard.
I work from home, so have good flexibility to be around the house with the pups with an open household and supervision throughout much of the day. We've got a very dog friendly car, and generally go to Fort Funston, Baker Beach, or Crissy Field a few times a week anyway, so if your pup likes the beach, he or she will have some great company. Kingsley and Ella behave really well off leash, so hopefully your dog will too, and they can romp to their hearts' content.
Both Kingsley and Ella are incredibly social and loving, and do really well with other animals. They definitely respect other dogs' personal space, but love to play when other dogs are willing.
Let me know if your pup needs training. Kingsley and Ella are great role models and together we can work on training if you or your pup are in need. Based on observation, Dogs that behave well seem to be the happiest!
