Bringing a dog into your home should be a major decision. Depending on the dog, you could have them around for 15 to 20+ years. Although all dogs need mental and physical exercise there are different levels of these requirements in various breeds. There are also financial considerations, time management issues. Who's going to walk, train, clean up etc. We can help you with this decision and help educate on appropriate breeds for your lifestyle.
