Our kids are angling for a dog as a pet, and we're coming round to the idea, I've had dogs in the past so know what I'm letting myself in for!
Our criteria are it has to be
-small (to fit in car with three kids, camping gear etc, and into our smallish house without causing too much disruption. ie a German sheperd would not be good)
-good natured (again because we have kids)
-able to run a good distance (XC rides and GT/innerleithen)
-be able to follow me down a downhill course! My friends' collies are great for this, amazing to watch! (collie would be a bit too big for us)
We've been considering one of these, a Parsons Jack Russell.
we would have to call it Eddie, obviously!
Anyone got any opinions on the breed and suitability as a mountain bike friendly dog? From reading about them it seems they can run all day and seem quite good with kids.
Or any other options?
I throw myself on the wisdom of the singletrack massive!
