How To Choose the Best Dog Breed For You

They say a dog is a man’s best friend and we would agree. If you’ve decided to get a dog and know that you can handle the responsibility, we are here to help you choose a breed!

Determine your lifestyle

Do you work crazy hours? Are you active? Do you have the time to commit to training?

You need to consider how much time you will have to devote to your new best friend. If you have very little time, it might not be the best idea to get a dog just yet.

Active

If you have an active, high energy lifestyle and love to adventure or explore you might want a more energetic breed such as a:

    Husky
    Weimaraner
    Border Collie
    Australian Shepherd
    etc.

Less Active

If your exercise consists of walking around the neighborhood instead of actively going on adventures, then a less active/energetic breed would be the perfect match.

    Bloodhound
    Bullmastiff
    Corgi
    Chihuahua
    Cocker Spaniel
    etc.

    Hardly Active

    You might not be as active as others, but there are still dogs that match your lifestyle!

      Pug
      Shih Tzu
      Basset Hound
      Bulldog
      Chow Chow

    There are so many different breeds of dogs to choose from that it can be a little overwhelming! Remember to do your research to find the dog that is right for you and your family!
