All of our dogs reside in our home. They do however, love to go outside to play with their buddies for at least a few hours a day. We are fortunate enough to have 100 acres here on the farm where we can go out for hikes with our dogs! At night, the dogs reside either with their puppies, with us in our bedroom, on the couch or rug, or in their crates. They have many options... our home is for the comfort of our dogs!
