Here is part 2 in my ongoing series- How will I bond with my new dog? Consider the types of activities you enjoy doing in your spare time, will he or she be able to do these activities with you? Will you take your dog to the coffee shop? Will they jog or be able to hike with you? Is your breed a social breed, outgoing? Does your breed get along with other dogs, humans? These are important questions to consider before making a decision.
