A dog is a dog right? No! Choosing a dog that suits you and your families needs and lifestyle is imporant. Look at some of the dog breeds listed below and learn all you can about the breed.
Things To Think About.
Will it be a small or large one?
A male a female?
A cuddly one, or a rough and ready type?
A pure breed or a mixed breed?
How much room do you have? A big back yard, you can choose one that needs space to run. A small apartment, maybe you should stick to one of the toy breeds; but trust me, exercise needs are not based soley on size.
There are many small/medium size dogs that need lots of run around room. My Chihuahuas are good examples, they may be the smallest breed, but, boy are they fast and they truly love to run!
Choosing a dog breed that is a true companion animal. They definately don't like being left alone, and will whine and cry, even if its only for short periods of time. They have voracious appetites for attention!
I work with a dog in my lap everyday and sometimes more than 1 (glad they're small)!
Are you into competition?
Are you a competive type? How about choosing a dog for Agility competitions. These are awesome events for both owner and dog.
Maybe you're competive but prefer the more docile type, like a Show Dog. Here is a Yorkshire Terrier being shown, another form of competition enjoyed by both owner and dog.
