We are a fun/activity minded family with 2 young girls (5 & 8) looking to occasionally host a dog so that we can postpone the inevitable as long as possible!
We had a beloved Vizsla for 12 years and have been too busy with two human puppies to get another dog. We are slowly dipping our toes back and would like to occasionally host a dog and get back in the game.
Our preference is is for SPORTING or HERDING dogs, although we can probably enjoy a toy dog. We may refuse certain breeds or dogs without good behavior.
We can easily commit to weekend/overnight care but weekday would be harder from a work standpoint.
We love to make our guest a PART OF THE FAMILY and have him/her come with us on hikes or walks or frolic in the park or play on the iPad unless his/her parents have rules against it.
We can host puppies > 6 months hoping they are well on their way to being crate trained. We also prefer dogs on voice control and with kid experience.
We live in an apartment but have access to a backyard. Typically we take the dog to a park 2 blocks away.
