Just two months ago we moved from San Diego California to Peoria Arizona. So, how did Annie (apx 6Yrs old) and Teddy (21 Mos old) handle the move and their new home?

Annie and Teddy my two large mountain Airedales made the big move if it with us, from San Diego California, to Peoria Arizona during the first week of November 2020.

They did well on the long 5 1/2 hour car trip and love exploring their new house and yard. Our house is about 25 years newer than our San Diego home, and the yard is much larger as well.

There is no doubt whatsoever that Annie and Teddy really love their new home. They seem to be playing and interacting much more with each other, than they were in San Diego.

Just like in San Diego I tried to get them out on various local hikes at least 3 to 5 times a week. We’re still in the process of locating the ideal hike, where it is somewhat strenuous, but, more importantly the trail itself is quite wide. The normal smaller hiking trails that dogs are allowed on, are way too narrow and therefore require you to pull the dogs over to one side when people are passing. But, the main reason I like the wide trail, is because I think it’s much safer to walk your dog down the center of a wide trail, here in the Southwest, to help avoid any potential rattlesnake encounters.

Back in San Diego, the vast majority of rattlesnakes seem to be right at the edge of the trails under bushes. So, a wider trail is a safer trail for your Airedales and yourself.

Right now in Peoria Arizona, it is the ideal time to be out here. The temperatures have been in the low’s 70s and in the evenings, so far, the lowest it’s gotten is about 38°

We realize, in just a couple of months, the temperatures are going to kick

up substantially. This Spring/Summer heat will require taking the dogs for a very early morning or late evening walks due to the high temperatures.

Our plan is after we finish upgrading this home, to put it on the market, and move up the highway, just about 90 minutes north of our location, to our ideal home in Prescott Arizona.

In Prescott Arizona in the Summer, because of its mile altitude, it’s usually about 20° cooler during the day, and the big benefit, is that during the evenings it typically drops another 15° or so. So, it’s really quite comfortable, and one does not have to use the air-conditioning anywhere near as often as living in the Phoenix area. Unfortunately, this ideal Spring and Summer weather is offset by about four months of mild winter weather, where the temperatures can drop into the high teens in the evenings. Yes, Prescott does get some light snow which usually vanishes in a day or two.

I’m pretty certain that our Airedales are going to love the cooler weather up in Prescott, as well as the additional benefit of being able to hike in the huge pine forest that surround the town.


He is swift, formidable, graceful, big of brain, an ideal chum and guard. …. To his master he is an adoring pal. To marauders he is a destructive lightning bolt.”
