Though it will be some time until I get another dog, I really want to know if visiting breeders now can help me decide on which breed will best suit me. With our previous dogs, we've visited breeders only concerning a particular breed we knew we were set on getting. I really like how some breeds look/sound on paper, but I think meeting some real specimens of the breeds will help me make a decision. Any thoughts? Is it too early to be doing this?
