How to choose a dog?

When it comes to choosing a dog that is right for you and your family, the choice can seem a bit overwhelming as there are hundreds of dog breeds out there (not including all the mixed breeds). Each pedigree dog breed has its own characteristics and with over 200 different breeds there is certainly an ideal breed for everyone. If you match these characteristics with your personality and lifestyle, it is more likely that you will have a happy and fulfilling relationship with your dog.

Use the list below to help you consider your choice of breed or type of dog:

  • Full of energy and lively or lazy like couch-potatoes
  • Very determined and ambitious or easy-going and indulgent
  • Friendly with humans or reserved with strangers
  • Playful with toys or disinterested in toys
  • Friendly to other dogs or not interested or incompatible
  • Friendly to cats and other pets or not interested or incompatible
  • Affectionate or like to be by him/herself
