Me and my partner are looking at getting a Labrador and a Labrador cross poodle. I am wondering if these are good first dogs to get?
We run together every day, so the dogs would be running with us too - is that enough exercise?
They would be without us for 9-10 hours a day during the week and be kept outside. We wanted two so that they have company. The yard is hardly huge, but it is enough to have a bit of a play, approx one quarter to half a basket ball court size. Will this be OK?
At night they would be inside the house with us and likely sleep in the same room with us too.
On weekends they would be as much our constant companions as feasible. Going for car rides and going on adventures to our friends houses.
How barky are Labs and lab cross poodles?
