Know Your Breeds
Whether you're looking for an awesome fitness partner or someone to cuddle up with on the couch, it's important to choose the right breed for your lifestyle. If you're struggling to make a decision, set aside a little time to do some homework. We've provided multiple articles filled with helpful information on breed characteristics, personality, living requirements and history. While each breed has a unique disposition, one is bound to be a perfect fit for you and your lifestyle.
Characteristics & Personality
From height and weight to exercise requirements, there are many physical characteristics and personality traits to consider when selecting a breed. If you want a large dog who is laid back and needs only 20 minutes of attention per day, then a Basset Hound or Leonberger could be a good match for you. Or if you prefer small dogs and want to boost your fitness level try a Jack Russell Terrier whose energy is very high and requires 40 minutes of exercise a day. Sift through our breed profiles to find a personality that matches yours.
Which Breed is Best for You?
Adopting a pet is a huge commitment, and one that requires a serious look at your lifestyle. Some things you might ask yourself are: How much time can you dedicate to your dog every day? Is your home and vehicle suited for large dog breeds or small dog breeds? Does dog shedding bother you? Do you have small children or a housemate who's allergic to dogs? And do you have the resources to properly train and support your pup? There's an endless list of things to consider when choosing a breed – just remember to avoid making a decision based on looks alone.
