I would suggest a smaller mixed breed,so you can get your kids to walk the dog when they are older ,but if your looking for a dosile dog I would suggest one like mine, a bullmastiff(not that mine is dosile yet)I know that neighber has three along with 2 small kids and there playing with them all the time,as well as i have never seen them walk them and they seem pretty calm,these dogs are into laying,fishing,watching baseball,and 4x4'in,a little big,but very trainable,if you put in the time.got to post some pics.(f'in dog owners thinking there dogs are kids,yeah thats me,but at least we can put them in a cage and not feel bad)at least i can.

Ours is a border/Black Lab cross. Best dog we ever had. She's won a number of Grand Championships in obedience and showmanship (although you'd never know it sometimes) and is an awsome companion. Mixed breeds are the way to go. We've had many purebreds in the past, mostly Shepherds and have had nothing but health issues with them. Go to your local animal shelter and see what's available. I truly believe that rescued dogs make the best pets. Ever seen the SuperDogs at the PNE? Most of those are shelter dogs. Just a suggestion.

that sounds like mine.we just have lots of heavy-duty chew toys to keep him occupied.having 2 1/2 acres for him to run around with our other dog helps. the only issue i've had is separation anxiety, he chewed some stuff, but since he's crate trained, he chills in the crate when we're not home. So far so good.

Go with a Sheltie, great family dog, excellent with kids, not as high strung as the Border Collie. I had a Sheltie as a kid. He was our best friend.. I still miss Sam

Border Collies (regardless of line) are VERY high strung, require tons of exercise, are incredibly intelligent, and will push your patience to the limits and beyond.

My last was a Collie/Wolf X. Chevy was a great dog, except that she was the reincarnation of Houdini, and if she didn't run 8 miles twice a day, she would jump her 12' fence and go exploring on her own.

my very last dog, was where I lived/worked as night security for a Storage facility in Abbotsford. His name was Chico, he was a Rotti cross (unknown what the cross was). But he was the biggest suck I had ever known.

How can you not love this face

otta love these pictures of people's dogs , and I have to say I have had large dogs all my life and never had a mean one , some were abit of work as puppies [digging etc.] but then they calmed down ,mixed breeds have always been good , lab crosses are a nice breed , malamute breeds I love but they are known to be wonders and we have to keep our 2 on leashes or if they get a scent their gone..
