Let’s Find Out Which Dog Suits You…

Getting a dog is a decision everyone should think about carefully. A dog in the family brings extra responsibility for everyone. The dog has to be house-trained, be walked and fed several times a day, and know what is and is not allowed in the house. Especially if you choose a puppy. In addition, you should consider which dog breed suits you, because some are harder to train or more energetic than you can handle (at your age). Let’s find out which dog suits you…Pay close attention to #7

Golden Retrievers Are Joyful, Kind, Playful and Learn By Trial & Error

Even if you have never had a dog in the house before, this is a perfect choice. They are joyful, kind, playful and learn by trial & error. Golden retrievers are very good with children, other dogs & animals and fit well with a good family, singles, and active seniors. Rather have a small(er) dog? On to the next…

Shih Tzu’s Are Very Loyal, Easy-going and Friendly Dogs

#2 Shih Tzu

Loved the golden retriever, but rather have a smaller and less active dog? This might be the dog for you. Just like the last dog breed, the Shih Tzu – a.k.a “Lion Dog” – is very loyal, easy-going, and friendly, but doesn’t need a lot of exercises. In fact, it would rather cuddle all day than go for long walks. Which makes the Shih Tzu perfect for the (less active) elderly. They are very welcome to kids, families and other dogs. But keep in mind: they’re very protective of their masters, which make them little guard dogs.

Beagles Love to Go On Long Walks at the Park or on the Beach

#3 Beagle

In case you loved the last pup, but don’t want a long-haired dog: a beagle is a great option. A beagle also comes in handy if you want to exercise more, because they love to go on long walks in the park or at the beach. Beagles are also very friendly. In addition, they are very good with kids which makes them perfect if you’re planning to have kids – in the near future – or if you babysit your grandchildren.

The World’s Most Popular Dog Breed Is the Labrador Retriever

#4 Labrador Retriever

The world’s most popular dog breed is the Labrador retriever. Which is mainly because of its great personality. “Labs” are extremely kind, intelligent, sociable, funny, and playful. This really is a great kind of breed if you don’t have experience with dogs/pups, want to start a family, or want a furry companion once you’re retired. It’s a short-haired large dog breed and is non-aggressive to other animals, children, and houseguests. Keep in mind they are laid-back, but they love to go to the beach, play fetch or play with other dogs at the dog park.

The Gentle Giant Is a Human’s Best Friend

#4 Bernese Mountain Dog

If you have a lot of space then you should pick the “gentle giant” – also known as the Bernese mountain dog. Originally, this is a yard dog, which means that it likes to lie outside and keep watch, but does not need to move around too much. Most are very stubborn but very kind to children & other animals and love to cuddle. Be careful, because most gentle giants think they’re the size of a chihuahua, which makes them also very clumsy and funny.

The Chihuahua Is Very Devoted to Its Owner

#5 Chihuahua

The Chihuahua may have acquired a certain image over the years, but truth be told, this is a great dog if you’re looking for a furry companion you can take everywhere with you. It’s a (very) small dog breed and loves to follow you everywhere you go. As you can read is the Chihuahua a dog that’s devoted to its owner, but expects this also from you. Which makes this the perfect dog if you – or someone else in your family – spent a lot of time at home.

Border collies are working dogs, which means that they have a lot of energy, want to learn new things every day, please you, and are in incredibly good condition.

French Bulldog Want to Cuddle 24/7

#7 French Bulldog

Looking for a furry cuddle partner? You definitely should choose a french bulldog – a.k.a frenchie -. This small, short-haired funny creature loves to cuddle 24/7. And not just with you: once it detects other humans – especially children – it wants to jump on your lap to give kisses and hugs. A real lap dog! If you are not very active or have trouble walking this little clown is a good choice, because they are notoriously lazy and love to sleep 14 to 18 hours a day.

This Breed Is Described as Kind-Hearted and Affectionate

#10 Border Terrier

This dog breed is for its kind very laid-back, but this doesn’t mean but this does not mean that the dog needs little to no activity. Thanks to its pleasing nature, this breed is very easy to train – for example: learn to walk on a leash or to leave the furniture alone -. The border terrier loves hard work, which makes it a good choice for active families. But also for less active people, it’s a good choice. This breed is namely described as kind-hearted and affectionate.

Boxers Really Love Kids

#11 Boxer

Looking for a dog breed that loves kids, so much it almost flips when it sees one? Well, you should definitely choose this breed. In addition, they are very patient and protective, which makes them another great dog to choose, when you already have or want kids. Boxers are quite smart, which makes them quick to learn (new) things. They are very active though, which means they need a lot of exercises, like daily long walks. The next dog breed unfortunately doesn’t have its looks, but is actually an excellent choice…

With the Right Leader, They’re Easy to Train & Loving Dogs

#12 Dobermann Pinscher

This type of dog breed is often seen as scary, aggressive and attacking. This is because of its build, size and appearance. This couldn’t be further from the truth, because Dobermann pinschers are a great choice if you are looking for a dog – and already have some experience in keeping and training dogs. With the right leader, they are easy to train and incredibly loving and a great family guardian. Please note that Dobermanns needs sufficient activity and attention otherwise they – like many other dog breeds – can become frustrated.

German Shepherds Are Loyal, Very Intelligent and Courageous

#13 German Shepherd

Another dog with a false image is the (German) shepherd. Originally, German shepherds are working dogs and love to please their owners. Which makes them great K9’s, search & rescue dogs and/or sheepdogs, but also family dogs. German shepherds are loyal, very intelligent and courageous. Start training this dog as soon as possible -at 8 weeks old – and keep him or her mentally and physically challenged. A German shepherd loves to go on long walks or going for a run with you.

Looking For a Royal Dog? Pick a Corgi

#14 Corgi

Looking for a royal dog? Well, a Welsh corgi might be the breed for you. Royal how? Of course, they aren’t of royal descent, but since they are Queen Elizabeth’s favorite dog breed, they kind of are. Corgis love to do things or having a job to do. Good training in the first year will – for almost 100% — guarantee a well-behaved furry friend for the rest of its life. It a great family dog, but also a great choice for seniors who like to go outside for a stroll.

A Breed That Loves to Get Challenged

#15 Australian shepherd

Another highly intelligent dog is the Australian shepherd. If you’re looking for a furry friend who will challenge both humans and dogs, this is definitely an asset to your – little – family. Especially if you live in a big place, like a house with a (big) garden. If you’re a novice dog owner, then this breed of dog maybe a little too ambitious, as they are capable of outsmarting their unsuspecting owners. Unless you have and take the time, to challenge this dog every day.

Easy to Train, Smart & Has a Affable Temperament

#16 Norwich Terrier

Like many terrier breeds, the Norwich terrier has a lot of energy but is a great option for experienced and novice dog owners. This breed is easy to train, is smart and has an affable temperament, and is described as willing companions. Do you want to do something together with your dog? Then sign up for a hunting club. You wouldn’t say it, but this little dog has a good hunting instinct and is used for this purpose in a lot of countries.

Alone and Looking for a Furry Friend? This Is a Great Option

#17 Papillon

This small dog breed loves to have his or her master to itself, so if you really want just one dog or are looking for a furry friend to keep you company, because you’re alone, this might be a great option. Note that they are quite active so if you’re experiencing difficulties with walking this is not a good match. Unless you have a large garden where it can entertain itself for hours. They love to please their owner, which make them easy to train and very lovable to them.

Social, Friendly, and Get Along With Other Pets, House Guests, and Kids

#18 Brussels Griffon

This small dog breed is one of the easiest dogs to train, so if you’re a novice owner, you should keep this breed in mind. They are social, friendly, and will get along with other dogs & pets, house guests, and kids. However, they do need a lot of attention, as they don’t like to stay alone and prefer to be with you at all times. Isn’t this a problem at all? Then this truly is the dog for you and I guarantee you’ll have a furry friend to boot.

Poodles Have a Hypoallergenic Coat

#19 Poodle

If you’ve read up a bit about different dog breeds, you’ve most likely already come across the poodle. This dog breed is a highly intelligent and obedient animal. This makes poodles easy to train. In addition, Poodles love the garden where they can entertain themselves for hours, if you do not have this, they also like to go for (long) walks. Another great thing about poodles is: they’ve got a hypoallergenic coat, which ensures that – if you are allergic – you will not be bothered by the dog hairs.

Rottweilers Need to Know Who’s in Charge

#20 Rottweiler

This is another dog with, unfortunately, a bad image. If you’re a novice dog owner I wouldn’t recommend this dog, but if you’ve got experience in training dogs and know how to be in charge, this would be a good option. Rottweilers need to know who’s in charge otherwise they’ll take on that role and you’ll get a dog that’s living up to the bad image. So make sure you teach this dog – from an early age – obedience & social skills. If you succeed in this you will have a super sweet dog who will go through fire for you.

Highly Intelligent & Active Dog That Loves to Please It’s Owner

#21 Shetland Sheepdog

Just like other sheepdogs, like the border collie & german shepherd, this dog is very intelligent and has a lot of energy. The difference is, that this dog is a bit smaller than the others. Shetland sheepdogs have a very good condition, so can join a run without difficulty or walk a long distance several times a day. Make sure you keep challenging the dog, so you keep an enthusiastic & friendly dog. A bored dog is a restless and moody dog!

The Bolognese Is a Great Choice if You Live in Apartment

#22 Bolognese

Looking for a small dog breed that can be cuddled with all day? Then the Bolognese is a breed to consider. These dogs are easy to train, intelligent and calm & quiet. Which means they don’t start barking for no reason. Which in turn is very nice for the neighbors and makes them a great option, if you live in a (small) apartment. Another advantage: because this breed does not shed much, it doesn’t need much grooming.

The Goldendoodle is a Suitable Breed for Almost Everyone

#23 Goldendoodle

Did the golden retriever and the poodle sound like suitable breeds to add to your family and you just can’t seem to choose between the two breeds? Well, I’ve got the solution: pick the Goldendoodle. You might have guessed it already, but the Goldendoodle is a mixed breed of the above-mentioned breeds. This dog really is the best of both worlds. It has the hypoallergenic coat of the poodle and the characteristics of the golden retriever. This means this dog is suitable for almost everyone!

This Dog May Have the Biggest Heart of Them All

#24 Pomeranian

If you’re looking for a dog breed that looks like a teddy bear and has a big heart, I would suggest you keep reading. The pomeranian may be small, but it has the biggest heart of them all. It’s a cute, intelligent, and lively breed. This furry – or fluffy – new friend, likes to learn new tricks and loves to be brushed on a regular basis. By the way, this is the only coat grooming this dog needs. Sounds great, don’t you think? Check out another great breed…

The Pug is a Perfect Choice for Families, Singles and Seniors

#25 Pug

You might be thinking now: huh this dog we already had, right? But that was a French bulldog and this is a pug. Even though they look very similar, they are 2 different dog breeds. A pug is great at adapting to its environment. You love to spend your time in bed or on the couch and cuddle? Great so does a pug. Do you like to go outside for a big stroll? Well, so does he/she. This makes the pug a perfect choice for families, singles and seniors (who have difficulty walking).

The Great Dane Is the Tallest Breed in the World

#26 Great Dane

I believe it is time for another “gentle giant” in this list. The Great Dane is – at 3 feet 7 inches or 1.10 meters tall – the tallest breed in the world. They might look scary, but they really aren’t. Great Danes have a good-tempered personality, are very affectionate, and are great watch- and/or yard dogs. Like a Bernese mountain dog, it thinks it is the size of a Chihuahua and this can sometimes work against the breed. For example, when it runs up to a child or wants to cuddle on the couch.

Let It Be the Lapdog It Was Originally Bred to Be

#27 Cavelier King Charles Spaniel

From the tallest dog breed to one of the smallest breeds in the world: the Cavalier King Charles spaniel. You will have guessed – probably by the name – but if you choose this breed you have brought a royal breed into your home. Don’t worry it doesn’t have a royal attitude. In fact, they are actually dogs that fall into the “low maintenance” category. All you have to do is wash them once a week, brush them occasionally and let it be the lapdog it was originally bred to be.

English Bulldog Are Notoriously Lazy

#28 (English) Bulldog

You may not think they look very friendly, but these short-haired dogs are. The reason for their “aggressive” appearance is that these furry friends were originally bred to fight bulls – which was a popular sport in the United Kingdom from the 16th to 19th centuries. These days, they’re notoriously lazy, which makes this breed a good option for people who can’t or won’t go outside much. Just be careful not to overfeed them! A bulldog has a shorter life span than most dogs, especially if it is (heavily) overweight.

“It’s So FLUFFY!”

#29 Keeshond

“It’s so FLUFFY!” This quote really rings true when we talk about the dog breed the keeshond. The dog may look like a small, fluffy teddy bear – who’d love to cuddle all day long -, but it really is a dog. That’s not the only positive thing about the keeshond though. Their personality is also very good. For example, they are: playful, friendly, smart, and love to learn new things, like: give paw, roll over, play dead and go fetch!

You Won’t Do a Shar-Pei Any Favors to Have Another “Furry Friend”

#30 Shar-Pei

This short-haired beauty is one of the few dog breeds on this list that can really be left alone for long periods of time. You won’t do a Shar-Pei any favors to have another “furry friend” so he/she won’t be so alone. For this, he does expect you to take him/her outside, to go on long walks with him or her. Shar-Peis have a lot of folds, which can cause a lot of dirt, ticks or eczema to be found between them. So make sure you check the dog for this regularly.

The Maltese Is Really Something For You!

#31 Maltese

Are you a retiree and looking for a pup that fits your lifestyle perfectly? Then the Maltese is truly the dog breed for you. They are small, friendly, and elegant dogs. As far as they are concerned, you don’t need to walk big rounds outside. How about their long-haired coat? Well, they are low-maintenance dogs, which means they should be washed and brushed on a regular basis, nothing more. And of course, a lot of cuddling, but who’s against that, am I right?

It’s the Perfect Dog for ‘Busy’ Families and Seniors

#32 Japanese Chin

This dog breed is a great option if you’re looking for a low-maintenance dog. Which makes it the perfect dog for ‘busy’ families and seniors (who have difficulty walking). What does low-maintenance mean? Well for the Japanese chin it means the dog needs to get brushed once a week, doesn’t not a lot of exercises, and loves to be cuddled with or sleep in your lap. If it can run around in a garden or at a dog playground it will be extremely content.

Adopt Don’t Shop!

#33 Mixed Breeds – Adopt Don’t Shop

I can’t say this often enough – especially if you already have some experience training and keeping dogs – adopt don’t shop! Visit different animal shelters and see if you can find a dog there that fits your family. This doesn’t have to be a purebred dog. Mixed breeds are often a lot healthier – they often have fewer hereditary diseases and allergies – and good to train because they have different dog breeds in them. Make sure you find out what mix the dog is though, so you can read up on how to train the dog and what all you can do.
