Africa loves her big yard. We are situated on about a half an acre and this little ol thing explores the entire lot! She loves it. With a large breed it is definitely recommended to get a big yard. I have found her chewing on the stucco of our house so she still needs supervision even though she has a lot of space. This breed needs lots of room to get her energy out and lots of appropriate chew toys. We don't have the best of grass yet and I hope we do soon because she seems to love other yards with grass.
