I am a school teacher who is taking a break to be home with my three kids. I have a second grader, preschooler, and toddler. We also have an 8 year old Shih Tzu named Lucy who is like a fourth child. We are outside constantly (and take the dog with us), playing and enjoying the neighborhood.
We have a separate area in the back of the house - away from the playroom - where the dog(s) can rest and find quiet. We allow dogs on the furniture and put fleece blankets on the sofas for ours to lay on. We love taking the dog(s) on frequent neighborhood walks. We also have a fenced in yard for the dogs to run around and play. Lucy is a very friendly dog and will love to have a playmate.
My kids are great with animals, and I do not leave them unattended, but I only watch dogs that are okay with kids. Our home is full of fun, play, laughter, attention and love. Your dog will receive a lot of affection, attention, and chances to play. A home away from home for your pet! :)
