So sorry, didn't know where else to post this? I read in several posts on this forum and another that dogs such as Mals and Dobes are not good first time dogs for new dog owners. So what would be a good kind of dog without having to get a toy dog if you still wanted to get a medium to large sized dog? I know there are several factors involved such as breed tenedancies, genetics, age of said dog, drives and temperment, pack leadership, exercise, etc. Just wondered what you all thought.
