Overall Pet-Safe Rating: ..
McGregor Welgedaan rates a very high 4/5 on the Pet-Safe rating scale! They were rated down due to not being a fully enclosed property. However we marked them up due to being so secluded. If your pups generally like to keep you in eyesight, you won't have a problem. With our own dogs, although they explored profusely, we made sure to keep an eye on them.
Grounds: Own, private space and large grounds.
Enclosed: No. The cottage is on a large un-enclosed area. The deck is also not fully enclosed, but we McGuyvered a gate from one of the tables which worked fine for us and kept the furkids safely inside. When we were on the deck we would open for them to run and sniff around.
Other dogs: None. But there is profuse small wildlife like Guinea Fowl and many other birds.
Walking dogs on property: Some great walks to be had here! This is possibly one of our favourites ito walking dogs and getting out and about for longer adventures. You can walk your dogs anywhere around the cottage, which is in the mountains and quite secluded, with the closest people being 5 km away.
Would we leave our dogs alone and go to the shop? No. Perhaps if we left them inside, but the drive to the closest shop is about 15 min, so we'd prob take them with us.
