    I'm agree with 10# . Mostly it's depend on you . But if you have a big house I suggest you feed a big dog .

    I dont necessarily agree with the comment that medium dogs are more demanding than small ones...

    I have had a maltese cross shihtzu that was 10o times more demanding than my now cocker spaniel. they may require a bit more excercise and room to move but personality wise i would not consider them more demanding?? I honestly think the cocker is a great breed for a beginner, much more so than a smaller breed that are more demanding/ strong willed, say a chihuahua or jack russel.

    There are larger breeds that are also alot easier to handle than a yappy, boisterous, nipping little dog.

    thats what i ment....
    more demanding means more exercise and room and usually more attention...

    it also depends what you classify as little and big
    the dogs that are usually yappy are tiny! smaller than my cat
    dogs that i classify as small are jack russel sized up to staffys
    medium is border collies, labs, golden retriever ect
    big is something at least 50kg

    but all depends on what you want and how much time your willing to put into exercise, training, grooming, playing and socializing

    greyhounds from the gap program are very laid back and big couch potatos. Met an adorable one in Frosty's colours at the park the other day.

    One dog I would recomend is a West whitehighland Terrier.
    These are your typical big dog in a litteldogs body.
    But they are so easy to train in the right hands.
    They really do love you and respond well to that soothing voice.
    My wife had one and she was so smart. That if we ever thought of having a second dodg I would most certainly relook into getting another one of there.
