If you’re looking for a dog to look after your home, you should probably consider getting a Doberman, German Shepherd, Rottweiler, or Pinscher. These breeds are natural guard dogs so they don’t trust strangers and will protect your home.
Retrievers - these dogs are too friendly and every thief will be welcomed into your house with a wagging tail and slobbering tongue.
This is where a Golden Retriever or Labrador would be unbeatable since they love children and are always ready to play. If you think they’re too big, then you could consider getting a beagle.
Pekingese - this breed of dog prefers to be the only child in the family.
If you like to go for a run every morning and need a training buddy, you should consider a Pointer or a Setter as they are built for running. If you’re looking for something smaller, a Jack Russel Terrier is another good choice.
English Bulldog or Pug - they struggle with too much exercise.
If you’re looking for a cuddle buddy who is always happy to rest on the couch while you’re reading a book or watching TV, a French bulldog or a Maltese is the perfect choice.
Any working breeds - they require lots of exercise.
Generally speaking, dogs are social animals, but some breeds are more suited for being home alone than others. If your dog will be on its own most of the time, you should think about getting a Basset Hound or a Shar Pei.
Retrievers or Collies - they like and need constant socializing.
If you’re retired and can finally spend some more time with your furry friend, a good choice would be a Boston terrier, a Pug or a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. These breeds are affectionate and playful without requiring hours of exercise.
Large dogs - they are very active and require much attention and exercise.
The size of the dog doesn’t matter here, but their temperament does. Just because a dog is small, doesn’t necessarily mean that it will be happy with living in an apartment. You should consider getting a Bulldog or Yorkshire terrier.
Chihuahuas - they are small, but they’re very active.
If you already have pets at home, you must choose the breed carefully, as you will want your pets to get along. Collies, Retrievers, and Spaniels are always happy to have company to play with.
Terriers or fighter dogs - they have beautiful personalities, but it’s in their nature to be competitive.
Most of us love summer, but not all dogs will agree with us. Surprisingly, many short-haired breeds will struggle in a tropical climate as it depends not on their coat but facial structure and size. You should consider getting a terrier.
St. Bernard’s, Samoyeds, and Boxers - these breeds do not feel well in hot weather.
The breeds that prefer a colder climate normally have a thick double coat and more body fat. As you probably expected, a good choice is a Husky, Malamute, or a Samoyed.
Doberman - they despise the cold.
If you’re a new dog owner, then a Border collie, Labrador, or Poodle will be perfect for you. These breeds are intelligent, easy to train, and are not stubborn.
Terrier or Schnauzer - they require more patience.
If you’re allergic to dog hair, it doesn’t mean that you cannot have a dog. Dander, which is attached to pet hair, is the most common cause of pet allergies and Schnauzers can be a good choice since they’re known for producing less dander than other breeds. Another great option is a Poodle.
German Shepherd - due to their dry skin, a lot of dander can build up.
