You should get a Spaniel!


Although Spaniels come in a boatload of varieties, they share an ability to get along with other pets and strangers. This dog is perfect for owners with a less athletic lifestyle... spaniels aren't particularly energetic and should be satisfied with only 30 minutes of walking a day. Most are stubborn and require verbal training early in live to combat aggression later on. They tend to get really excited over their owner after a long absence, so be prepared with paper towels in case of accidents.

Needs: Show your spaniels a lot of love and tolerate their habit of begging for food. Reward good behavior with treats and positive verbal communication and you'll have a friend for life.
