Hello there! My family and I have decided to get a dog (we’ve never had one before). But we are having problems deciding the right breed for us, and we would like you’re help. So here’s our info: We are a family of four people (two 16 year old boys) and we live in a two storey house, with a pretty large yard. We are all away from the house 6- 8 hours a day (due to school and work), and so we are planning on making a fenced area outside with a doghouse, where the dog can stay when we’re away, so it doesn’t have to stay inside. However we are fairly active people, and are planning to give the dog at least two walks a day, and we also have access to large green areas and water where we can play with it. So we would like a dog that is fairly active as well(although not hyper, as quiet evenings in front of the TV are appreciated). Other then that, we would like it to be medium to large sized, and friendly to other animals, as we have a cat. Thanks in advance. Ps. we have already talked about a Labrador/golden retriever, but we find it a bit to ordinary.
