Are you willing to take advice about the best way to work and live with the dog if it has some issues?
Will your working hours allow the dog to have a good quality lifestyle?
Does every member of your immediate family want a dog?
If your answer to most of the following questions is 'Yes' then it almost certainly is not:
Do you want a couch potato?
Do you and your partner both work long hours so the dog will be alone all day every day?
Do you hate going out in foul weather and getting muddy?
Do you want a dog you don't have to train?
