hi, im newbie here, i am planning to keep dog, i went to petshop and sometime im afraid of dog, im afraid that if dog will bite.. how to approach dog? i know lots of kids approach dog with confidence. secondly, i wanna know know which dog is rite for me? i dont want to groom and i dont want that dog to shred. i am willing to take out for 2-5 mins a day and sometimes non. which dog do u recommend me? please advice thanx jim
ALL dogs have the potential to bite, that's thier only defense!!! Also if you don't want to exercise or groom I suggest you not get a dog at all!!! ALL dogs require some form of exercise and training. If you aren't comfortable around dogs you might want to work on that first or get a cat.
I take my dog (a basenji) out for 20-30 minutes at least three times a day.
Did I read your post correctly in that you're only willing to take your dog out for 2-5 minutes a day or perhaps even not at all? Dogs need exercise or they become very unhappy, jimagic. Perhaps an indoor cat would work out better for you?

i think you should go for any dog u think is right 4 u because if we or i pick for then its not your desistion and that might be the wrong type of dog for u. i mean u might not like it. 1 question can u tell me some facts about dogs please for this topic i have to do
I think you should get a very large dog...one that poops and pees big, so that you come home to a stinky house!
Maybe even a coyote.....
Speaking of dogs that don't need to be let out, don't shed and don't need exsercise...have you guys seen that stupid floor commercial where they had a pet balloon?? I thought it was funny the first time I saw it, but then it was just stupid :o)~
I Know of the perfect dog for you. I have at ten of them, they come in all different sizes and colors, they come in all different lengths of hair and their hair doesnít grow or shed. They do not bite, ever. You donít need to spend any time with them and they will sit on your lap whenever you want. They do not bark, they do not need to be fed or have fresh water, they will never have an accident in your house nor do they pee or poop outside so there is no mess to clean up. They are called a STUFFED dog, and are widely available in stores near you, they are also the ONLY kind of dog anyone should buy from a store.
You are afraid that a dog will bite? You don't know how to approach a dog?? You will not groom a dog? You will only take your dog outside for 2 - 5 minutes?? Is this post a joke??? If you really want a pet, get a fish. No....get a ....let's see.....oh!! I got it!! Don't get any pet!!!!!
What do you want a dog for if you are not willing to brush it, groom(clip) clean up after all the shedding. You don't want to walk it. If you don't walk it, it will become destructive, tear apart things in your home. They need alot of attention. All of them. You need to maybe go to a local rescue and have them show you how to care for a dog. If you are not willing to care for one, then get a stuffed animal that can sit on your bed.
I've seen pugs at my dog park that gets half hour walks every other days. I say 20-30 walks will be the minimum. As far as you're afraid, don't u have a friend that has a dog that u can at least play with for a bit before u commit to getting one yourself?
This post does seem a little off but not all dogs need outside exercise. Some dogs get enough exercise running around their house all day. Some people have never had their dog touch the ground outside and use doggy litter boxes or pads indoors. There are alot of dogs that are good for apartments that don't need taken out. So the question is not so off the wall. Thats why i got the breed I did because the very little exercise needs. Mine does go out but only for potty and that usually only does take 2-5 mins. Ofcourse I do it atleast 3x a day.
OP each dog is different in the exercise department. The no/short snout dogs can't really handle alot of excerise esp. in extreme heats.
OP just do a search for dogs that need little exercise.
ok ok, i was just jokin, im willing to take 30-45 mins outside, but which dog should i get? what do you guys recommend. One of my friend has dog Basenji, he tells me to get that type of dog cuz it does'nt shred and bark. Is that true? I am thinkin of gettin bichon fries which is small dog for first timer. if i get puppy, how easy to teach potty training ? or should i get older dog? what is difference between housebroken, & crate trained? i went to rescue center to look for dog and i came across word like housebroken? thanx in advance jim
Wow jimiagic..that was mightly quickly that you shed your improper grammar ridden persona.......
I take that back...it just got slightly better. You need a dog that will walk itself, not open its mouth on you, not shed, not poop, without any health problems, one which doesnt require much training or caring for that matter being....Wake up sweety, i think you might be dream typing...
