|So this will be a few years down the line, but I like to do breed research before I commit to owning a dog. I just got a show line yellow lab puppy who is amazing but will probably be a little too stocky for everything I want to do with him. I don't regret having him, AT ALL because I loved the breed and wanted my first dog I own by myself to be a lab. However, I am a runner and love to run long distances. I've read that GSPs, once growth plates are closed and are trained up to it, do well running longer distances, and I have also read that they are very loving dogs. I love the way they look also (who doesn't? .
So my question is are they a good breed for me? I have two cats who are great with our older labs at my parents house, and want to be great with the little puppy but he's still a bit bitey for them, and I work full time (7:30-5) usually, but when I get my 2nd dog I will have a much more predictable schedule...and I plan on using puppy day care and/or pet sitters/dog walkers when needed. Will a GSP work for my home and lifestyle (I will have a yard, fenced, etc.)?
Thanks all - feel free to be honest and harsh if necessary I'm just looking to be informed and give up this research if I should .
