I have never owned a dog but I want one, I am active and will be able to spend alot of time with it. Should lack of experience send me looking for a new breed?

Get a shiba puppy, put in obedience class very early (10 wks.), spend a lot of time giving positive feedback, and you will have the most wonderful dog. They are SUPER smart, potty train fast, can amuse themselves, but want attention from their owners, love walks, love people but not necessarily other dogs. They adore being part of the family, but sometimes need independence. Super loyal, fearless, athletic, sweet, not picky eater. We LOVE our shiba. Just invest in training class and give lots of attention early. So worth it!
