Hi I'm looking to get a dog for my family. It's just me and my 5 yr old son right now. :-/ was wondering if you all had any suggestions. Im looking for something that will get along with my son and I and will be easy to manage and train. I don't want anything too small or too big. I had a Yorkie growing up so I'm trying to stay away from that one. Thanks

Not a beagle or a basset hound - they are hard to train. I second the comment about a shit tzu. A chow chow is also an excellent family dog. Very protective. Just socialize a lot! I know you said nothing big but a great Dane is also a loving and snuggly dog. They are gentle giants and are great in apartments. Big, but lazy.

I'm no help because I love big dogs particularly German Shepherds. This is my son's buddy...we have had him since he was 8 weeks old.

Bring your son to an animal shelter and the dog will pick you.

Here's my son and his best friend Jax. I recommend a Golden Retriever, very family friendly, playful, and protective
