I am a man in college, and looking to get my first dog on my own. I had a dog growing up, but she wasn't strictly mine: she was one of the family. Now, while I'm looking for a companion, I keep running across the same thing: "Not a One Man Dog", meaning that they require more than one person to be around. I'm not a hermit, but I am by myself a lot, and I wouldn't mind a dog to keep me company. I would like to get a bigger dog , like a Golden Retriever (which was my first choice), but that's where I first saw the aforementioned warning. I was just wondering what kinds of dogs are okay having mostly just one person around. Any assistance in this matter would be most appreciated!
