I have a question. Do you think it’s cruel to keep a retriever as a family pet? My partner and I are thinking of getting a flat coated retriever as a family pet early next year, but I was wondering if it’s cruel to keep a dog of this nature in suburbia? I had a cattle dog and she lived in suburbia and I think she was very happy. And when I got her I asked the same question, so I was just wondering if you had a though or opinion on this matter, because I find myself asking this question quite a lot.
My partner love to walk, we go to the park with our son, and we want our dog to become a member of our family. With us at all time’s when it’s possible.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
