Well here is for some very exciting news. Max and Zoey (with mom and dad of course) will be moving. We are upgrading from our little apartment to a 3 bedroom 2 bath duplex with a fenced yard. When we started looking I refused to get anything without a yard. Nothing but the best for our pups! Max and Zoey are going to love it and I can see their bordum going straight down the drain. Lots of room to FRAP!!!! So wish us luck on our big move tomorrow! I'll post some pictures of the kids romping through their new yard when we get all settled in.

I'm very happy to say that kids are loving the new place. Neighbor dogs and kids come up to the fence and say hi, plenty of kiddy pool time, and of course tons of room for unlimited FRAP. One of the best things I could ever do for them. Cheers to happy healthy corgis!

Good luck with thew move and congratulations!   I have to agree with all of the people who are warning you to check your yard carefully.  I hope your pups are like Bear and will enjoy the yard and then scratch at the door to be let in.

Good luck with your move! I have moved 4times since my hubby is in the military. I know what u mean about getting excited for a back yard. In our first house in SC , they had a huge backyard but then we moved into an apartment and Teddy hated it. Even my cats couldn't stand It. But 2months later we moved to DC and we had a supar small yard so He just used it as a potty but now we live here in AR and have a big back/front and he loves it.

Our old house was not fenced so the boys went out only on a leash.  When we moved to this house  with a big fenced backyard it took them a few days to understand it was to run and play in.  We would let them out the door and they would stand there waiting for a leash.  We had to walk them around the yard, throw the ball and soon they realized the whole yard was theirs. (And the 100 pine trees in the yard was a  bonus...............so many trees they were lifting their legs to months.

Remember that moving time is a classic scenario for losing pets.  Cruise the whole neighborhood on-leash in all directions for long distances to familiarize Max & Zoey with the new geography, so they can find their way home should they get out.

Don't trust the fenced yard until you've thoroughly inspected it for weaknesses.  Our dogs have a low escape drive (they might dig a hole in the middle of the yard, just to get dirty, rather than a hole under the fence to escape), but YMMV.  Max & Zoey presumably have no experience being unleashed outside.

When Gwynnie was young, before I fenced the yard, we had a bad moment when she disappeared after dark, would not come or reply.   She could've been anywhere, gone more than 15 minutes.  Amid rising panic, an inspiration!  I opened the basement door and turned on the shop-vac.  As usual, she had her teeth sunk into the plastic vacuum nozzle within 12.4 seconds.

 Got microchips?   And test them.  For years, we were counting on Gwynnie's chip, which gave no signal when I finally thought to have the vet verify it.

whoo, congratulations! This is wonderful news. Make sure your fence is secure (no spaces to dig under) and has a lock on the gate.
