    Hi,

    Could anyone suggest a dog like this? Possibly one that doesn't malt?

    Thanks

    pop this in dog chat, you will get more reply's there :)

    no dog will come ready trained, they all take work but there will be lots of training tips and advice over in dog chat :)

    All dogs moult to a degree, but some are a lot less noticeable than others. They will be better suited to help you in dog chat :)

    I will move this to dog chat for you, but no dog comes ready made although maybe some breeds are easier to train not as stubborn...moulting it happens in different degrees in different breeds..

    :lol: There are none

    The people who you see with well behaved dogs are people who spent hundreds of hours training them to be well behaved - I think as Julie said a stuffed toy may be your best bet

    Easy to train and walks off lead well that's a hard one You have to put work into a pup for that to happen
    each and every day toilet training puppy training classes and you need to be with a puppy many hours each day to do this
    Poodles and Bichons don't moult but don't hold your breath on toilet training a Bichon :rolleyes:

    While poodles are nice small dogs, coat maintenance is high.... you will spend a lot of time brushing the dog, and clipping the dog, unless you are prepared to send the dog to the groomer every 6 weeks :D
