I have a lot of experience with dogs, having had pets and farm working dogs since I was a young child. I used to have Rhodesian Ridgebacks, so I'm comfortable with large breeds. I currently live with my husband and a very friendly cockapoo in Hanover.
My dog gets walked twice a day (usually along the downs or to the beach)- visiting dogs join the walks - and we have a fully enclosed, decent sized garden (see pic in photo album). We are a child free house so no worries about dogs that might be skittish around kids.
