Hi there. I am a writer that works from home. I've had dogs all my life, and at the moment, I have a Maltese named Berri. I live in a single level house (no stairs-great for older dogs), with a screened in porch and a large yard. During the day, I let the dogs into the screened porch for a half/hour or so at a time. They spend the majority of the time inside the house. (It's hot outside! Dogs appreciate the cool AC too!)
I do not leave them in the yard unattended at any time. We go on morning and evening walks. For very energetic pups, I'll add an extra walk in the middle of the day. There's a lovely shaded park next to my house that's very pleasant to walk through.
I baby my dog, and I'll do the same for yours.
