Whoo!!! A Complete Guide to Finding the Perfect Dog just for You.
Dogs are the funniest cutest and friendliest ever they’re not called man’s best friend for nothing right but with hundreds of Breeds to choose from which one would perfectly suit your lifestyle and needs. Let’s find out
1 Guard Dogs
A lot of people are looking not only for a friend but also a faithful Guardian in their dog. If you’re one of those people and you want your pooch to look after your home, you should probably consider a Rottweiler, Doberman, Pinscher or German Shepherd. These breeds are natural guard dogs since they don’t trust strangers that easily and they’ll do a good job at protecting your house. Now that doesn’t mean they won’t be funny or cute, don’t worry they can easily do both you probably won’t find a good fit for retrievers. Though these dogs are usually way too friendly so burglars would be welcome with a wagging tail and slobbery kisses.
2 Family-friendly Dogs
If you have a big family full of kids or just welcome to newborn into this world, it can seem challenging to pick the perfect dog breed. Of course! pretty much every dog loves children but this would be a territory where a Labrador or Golden Retriever would be completely unbeatable they just adore children and are always ready to play. Nothing makes them happier than fetching a ball. If their size intimidates, you consider getting a Beagle. A Pekinese may not be a good choice though they usually prefer to be the only child in the family.
3 Athletic Dogs
If you lead an active lifestyle and love going for a daily jog you probably wouldn’t mind having a training buddy around. Would you consider getting a pointer or a setter since they’re pretty much built for running? If you want something a bit smaller a Jack Russell Terrier can be a good choice as well it’s not a good idea to get an English Bulldog or a Pug. They’ll most probably struggle from over-exercising. Steer clear of any large stocky breeds to they may be too heavy and the frequent running can damage their joints number
4 Lap Dogs
What can be better than chilling out on the couch and watching some TV after a hard day’s work? If you’re looking for a furry cuddle buddy who will always be happy to laze around on the sofa with you, a French Bulldog or a Maltese is your perfect fit. They’ll always be by your side up or on your lap whenever you’re reading a nice book or watching your favourite TV show.
5 Dogs for Busy Singles
Any working breeds are usually completely different. They require lots of exercise and activity dogs. As a busy single a lot of people stop themselves from getting a dog because they’re constantly out of the house. Of course!! generally speaking dogs are social animals but still, some breeds deal with being home alone better than others. If this describes your lifestyle think about getting a Shar-Pei or a Basset hound.
Retrievers and Colleagues, on the other hand, aren’t a good fit for you because they like and require constant socializing and don’t forget that any dog needs love and attention. You shouldn’t get one if you won’t be able to spend at least some time with your buddy. Hmm!! maybe you should get a cat, most of the cats, I know could care less if you’re around or not but that’s just me.
6 Dogs for Seniors
Freshmen and Sophomores get their own breeds. If you’re retired and have decided to welcome a dog into your home a good option for you would be a Boston Terrier a pug or a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, boy that’s a name, they’re affectionate and playful without requiring lots of exercise large dogs, however, can be a little tricky sometimes. They’re most active and need a lot of attention and a sufficient amount of exercise.
7 Dogs for an Apartment
Now if you’re living in an apartment certain dog breeds will suit you a bit more than others. Surprisingly the size doesn’t always matter here, it’s about the dog’s temperament. If the dog is small it doesn’t necessarily mean it’ll be happy living in a smaller space consider getting a Yorkshire Terrier or a bulldog. If you’re interested in Chihuahuas, you might want to think twice. These dogs are tiny but very active.
8 Dogs for multi-pet Households
If you already have pets at home, getting another one is pretty challenging and potentially dangerous. You have to choose the breed carefully since you surely want all your pets to get along. Retrievers, Collies and Spaniels are always happy to have company, to play with so they’ll likely make a great match with your other pets.
Terriers breeds are typically used in dogfighting can sometimes be a bit complicated. Without a doubt, they have beautiful personalities but unfortunately, fighter dogs were breed to be aggressive and competitive. It’s simply in their nature.
9 Dogs that do Well in Hot Climates
Most of us love summer but not all dogs will agree. If you live in a place where it’s hot most of the year you should think carefully about which dog to get. Surprisingly many Shorthair breeds would seriously struggle in a tropical climate since tolerance to hot weather depends not only on the coat but on the dog’s facial structure and size as well. Most Terriers can take the heat and they come in lots of sizes at the same time St. Bernards, Samoyed and Boxers won’t feel good in hot weather.
10 Dogs that do Well in Cold Climates
if where you live in the complete opposite of the type of climate we just talked about then your options obviously will be different breeds that prefer a colder climate, normally have a thick double coat and more body fat. So as you can probably guess a good choice is a St. Bernard, Malamute, Husky or Samoyed. They feel right at home in cold temperatures Dobermans, on the other hand, hate the cold.
11 Hypoallergenic Dogs
Now if you’re allergic to dog hair you’ve probably sworn off the idea of ever owning a canine but hold on there for a sec, dander which is attached to pet hair is the most common cause of pet allergies. Schnauzers can be a good choice since they’re known for producing less dander than other breeds.
Another good option is a poodle and any of its designers cross-breeds like Labradoodles, poodle and the list of GMO doggies goes on, just know that your allergies may still act up from time to time but overall it won’t be as bad as with the other breeds.
German Shepherds aren’t a good breed for you due to their dry skin which results in a lot of dander. Built-up the same goes for a long-haired breeze as well or you can always get the dog you want and then just double down on the allergy medicine.
12 Dogs for a Newbie
Getting a dog for the first time ever is both exciting and nerve-racking. There are so many breeds to choose from and they’re all so cute and adorable. If you’re new to the dog-owning world then a Labrador border, Collie or Poodle will be perfect for you. These breeds are very intelligent, relatively easy to train and they’re not stubborn.
Schnauzers and Terriers require a bit more patience though but they’re still great choices. The best thing to do is find good shelter in your area make sure to mention you’re a newbie so that they can find you the best fit and next thing you know, you’ll be coming home with a lucky dog that’ll surely become your most loyal friend.
