They Think I'm One Of The Pack

I have never gone very long between dogs. I've owned German Shepherds, an Australian Shepherd/ Lab mix, a Golden Retriever and several mixed breeds.
Currently, I own a smaller dog - Cooper, my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. He's very friendly and well socialized with people, dogs and other pets.. He loves long walks and so do I, I always clean up his mess and I always keep him on a leash, unless it's an off-leash park ...

What Hal would like to know about your dog

My favorite breeds are Golden Retrievers and Labs (yellow or black), but I can only accept larger breeds if they're over two years old, housebroken and have had obedience training. Of the smaller breeds, I like Shelties, Cavaliers and Cocker Spaniels. Just about any dog is fine with me.

When Hal watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
There are endless stretches of grass and local parks and fields. Every day, we take a different route, so the dogs get to explore their surroundings.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement:
Whatever room your dog seems to gravitate to the most is where they will sleep. I'll be happy to put a dog bed or blanket in their spot for added comfort. If they prefer being separated form the other dogs, we can confine the area with pet-proof gates. Usually, the dogs all get along pretty well and separating them is rarely necessary.

Time I'll spend with your dog
This household consists of recently retired people and another who works from home. So, there is usually someone here to keep the dogs company 24/7. We also go on daily walks two to four times a day!
