Small dogs are free to roam in our home and have access by doggy door to our back yard and patio, which is fully fenced yard, with stucco walls and a gate with big slats.
Our home is one main floor, measuring 1100 square feet. It has 1 master1 bedroom, 1 sitting room with rocking chairs and computer, We also have a small library room between 2 bedrooms or 1 bedroom, 1 office and 1 bedroom and also has a living sitting room, dining room, small kitchen and laundry room.
We have a doggie door for to and from access to the back patio, which our dog Rex is already looking., which measures 10 x 8 feet with a partially covered overhang and the back yard has solid stucco walls and a locked gate with wood slats that are pushed together, with no gaps. The back gate opens to the greenbelt grass areas with cement walkways, which I can walk through the entire neighborhood.
The front patio also has a locked gate, and there are no open areas, but a small dog like Rex can get under the wrought iron, so dogs are always supervised/leashed when on the front patio. Our front door is a black security gate, so dogs can see outside when the front door is open.
We walk three times a day in the winter months, simply beautiful. My lunch is from 8-8:30. lunch 130-2 and then dinner about 5-6pm..
Rex gets ½ cup of wet food now that he is 11. He used to eat dry food, but his teeth appreciate the wet food.
I also have administered oral medications to a cat with heart issues for about 2 months everyday, the morning and night 12 hours apart. Rex gets a bath 1-2 times a week.
I use all natural bath products with mint, rosemary and neem to smell good and repel pests. I also use Pet Armor on Rex once every 30 days to prevent chewing lice. He has never been diagnosed with this, but I started this and he seems not to lick his paws excessively.
Rex gets along with other dogs really well. He flowers, grass or other dogs spots en route. Our community now called Tapatio Cove is WELL-KNOWN for DOG WALKERS and we even have doggie poop bag stations placed in places throughout the year round green grass lawns and our mostly wrought-iron gated community. We are just south of the Pointe Tapatio homes and to the east of North Mountain. Lots of nice neighborhoods to walk.
I also drive a Nissan Frontier with a small back seat, which makes it easy to transport dogs if needed. Rex rides along enjoys rides riiding the truck.
