Hey everyone, I currently have one child who is nearly 20 months old. We live in a fairly secluded place which offers a pretty decent amount of land for yard play and walks. We have been considering getting a dog yet completely clueless on the type of breed. I was just curious with some of the dogs you have had or have and how well they are with your child(ren). My grandparents just recently got a little cocker spaniel and she's just the sweetest but I feel like we might want a dog slightly bigger. I mention dog but a cat could also be possible as long as it doesn't interfere with my allergies. I tend to get the burning eyes more often with long hair and a few different types. Any and all advice is greatly appreciated thank you all
Thank you everyone for being so helpful this has really opened my eyes up to all of the different factors and narrowed our search. We are doing some research on both beagles and corgis and I noticed that some places nearby even have a mix breed so if anyone has any experience with that please let me know and if it's bad information please send me a message since many posts have come in and I don't want to miss out on it. I'm still open to hearing about your dogs or cats, let's share those photos! I'll add some of my dog I had before to give you an idea of what I'm used to
This is Mik he's the dog I grew up with. He was an australian kelpie I love this breed so much however my heart is not ready for another one yet.
