    Lightbulb Can't deside, WHAT BREED FOR US?

    Hi everyone, I'm stuck for choice at this point in time and not sure what to go for... So would like to see what other people think what breed of dog would suit us.

    Our details:
    - To start off we are large family of Six children ages from 5 to 13years
    - We live on a very large suburb block 3000m2
    - We have my darling six year old border collie girl Cruizer (desexed pet of course with CD CDD)
    - We have two pet bunnies

    The dogs must have's
    - Good with children
    - Good with small animals
    - Medium size dog or larger
    - Carm and relaxed dog around the home, so not a dog that bouces off walls.
    - No staffy or mastiff types, and no labs.


    I'm looking for a female dog that we can do obedience with and get back into the showring with too.

    So what do you think would suit us?

    Maybe another BC as you are familiar with the breed?

    I think you have eliminated the best 3 breeds there are.

    What about a Husky or similar.....or even a German Sheperd ??

    Well I've had bad experience with owning two Tibetan Mastiff's. I had one ripped apart a lady legs while she walked her dogs two years ago and had my boy attack my friend for no reason, she was just sitting their and he ripped onto her arm. So needless to say I'm not comfortable with owning any sort mastiff again sadly.
    With Staffies, my husband just doesn't like no particular reason. Labs - everyone has them and too many health problems in the breed for my liking.

    Rhodesian ridgeback? Brittany? No idea if the latter can be trained to co-exist with small animals, but most dogs can be if you start young.

    Based on your criteria I'd recommend a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. No problems with children, very laid back, and great for obedience and showing.
    They meld into most homes very easily.

    Here is our first dog, Ozzy. His best mates were a cat and a rabbit.
