Beach walks! Love Dogs & Horses!

My husband and I are retired military living on Emerald Isle, NC. We are both experienced with most dog breeds, however, mostly large breeds have been part of our lives.
My husband and I are a team, we are flexible with our time, one of us is available as much as possible.
We have cared for not only dogs; cats, horses, birds, goats and donkeys. I have a German Shepherd who is a 74lb puppy ...

What Darlene would like to know about your dog

We would expect honest communication and information regarding your pet. We have experienced different temperaments of all animals as individual as their humans! Horses and dogs bring us joy beyond words, they also bring many challenges which we welcome.
We welcome all healthy animals, we will work with all "attitudes", therefore do not be afraid to tell us all behavioral aspects of your beloved pet!!! We want to know their likes, dislikes and indifferences! We want their time on the beautiful island to be as fun and relaxing as yours!
