My husband and I have been raising dogs for about 20 years, 10 years recently and about 10 years before our children. We reside in beautiful east Tennessee and our dogs are our pets and live in our home. We are not a kennel nor do we have a building out back. Our pets are with us all day and also enjoy a half acre back fenced yard with plenty of room to run with the kids. We have 4 of our 6 children still at home and I’m a stay at home mom so we have lots of time and love to spend on our 4-legged babies.
