Holy crap I got a lot of responses quick when I bumped that lol and thank you. The pups we are going to look at have been with young kids and 5 full grown dogs from day 0. They are already used to being on the leash. I hear dogs bark day and night aa both my neighbors dogs bark at every single thing. The running off part does concern me as we don't have a fenced in yard but I didn't intend to take him out without a leash as our leash laws are pretty strict.
