Default Dry Hops in Long Secondary

Just brewed my biggest beer to date. 1.100 American Barley Wine.
I plan to primary for a month, and then secondary for a few more. I want to dry hop this recipe, and I figure it should happen right before bottling.

So when should I do this? will the yeast be able to bottle condition? I used the White Labs 099 super high gravity ale yeast. Pitched a 2.5qt starter. Oxygenated after cooling, and then at 12, 24, 36, and 48 hours.

If I dry hop with pellets for 4 days before bottling would I have a problem oxygenated beer?

Fermenter smells amazing.

In the secondary you shouldn't have much head space so I would think it wont oxidize on you. I personally would go by how much head space there is.
