There's also another seldom mentioned issue: (because it's gross)Good. I puppy sit my 2 nephews, miniature schnauzers, & no way Jose would i let them ANYWHERE near a tort if I had one. I luv them but they luv chasing rabbits & my cats.
Dogs LOVE to eat tortoise poop and tortoises LOVE to eat dog poop.
So even without any actual contact, them just sharing a yard can introduce foreign microbes and parasites.
It's a lot to consider.
