Firstly i hope i have posted this in the correct place as im a newbie
I will give you a quick explanation of my situation
I want to buy a Dog for my Son who is 5 years old as he would love it myself and my Wife believe
I have never owned a dog before and i have got no idea where to start hence the reason i joined this forum
I would like to have a pure bred dog, which is small, we can have in the house with us, does not shed its fur all over the place and does not wreck my house which i not long ago fully renovated! We have a small house in country Victoria with small garden area, we also have another property by the sea with decent sized gardens
Something small which is friendly, and my Wife wants to wash him in the bath weekly to keep him nice and clean, im sure my Son would love having him as he is our only child and it will keep him happy and amused!
I would also like him to be well trained, maybe if we even took him to dog obedience classes?
Can somebody point me in the correct direction of where to start looking etc and what to look out for when purchasing a dog? I see people selling dogs in local newspapers but im not sure if this would be the way to go?
I want to take my time in this process to make sure we make the correct decisions
Is there places in Mebourne area i could look, i actually live in Morwell, Victoria.
Thank you in advance!
