Hello.I plan on getting a dog when the time is right and everything is arranged.Until then,i have some time to think about which breed would be most happy living with us,and us with him/her.I have looked at a few breeds,but the ones that have stuck in my mind are:- ~Labradors ~German Shepherds ~Standard Schnauzer ~Italian spinone/spinone italiano ~English Cocker Spaniel ~Any other breeds you recommend Those aren't the only breeds i am thinking of,I am open to any suggestions. This will be my first dog.I want the dog to fit in with the family and be loyal. The dog we buy/rescue will be taken for daily walks,and we have a big dog walking park near us.The dog will only be walked/let of the lead in that big dog walking park once a day.The other times during the day we will walk him/her will be in a small nearby feild. As i said before,we want a dog that will be obedient after some training at home and training at classes.We're not looking for a dog that will be trained to sit etc in about a month,we are willing for it to take more time than that.We preferably want a dog that isn't likly to follow its nose,like a Beagle. We don't want a dog that needs over 2 hours of excersise.The dog will be walked in the morning,lunch,afternoon,and the evening.Any more time then that the dog will not get and it wont be fair on him/her.We have a medium/big garden that the dog will be able to run around in. I hope i have given enough information so you can help me choose a dog breed that will be best suited. We don't mind buying one,or rescuing him/her,but aim to find an under one year old dog. Please reply with any suggestions or anything to comment on what i have said. Thank you.
