We're a family of five, consisting of Mum (author of post), Dad, and three children aged10, 7 and 5. Our youngest will be at school next year, and we are considering adding a dog to our family, so we thought we should start learning now!
We have other pets, in order of size they are; 3 cats, 2 guinea pigs, 2 rats and fishes.
Looking forward to being educated in doggies, as we've not had a dog since before the children were born (and that was a Guide Dog puppy who we adored). Before that, I hadn't had a dog since I was a teen when our family dog died. We are looking forward to finding the perfect pooch for us!
