What Breed Of Dog Should You Get?

Thursday, November 14, 2019

Dogs are wonderful, loving creatures who deserve a lot of care and attention. And if you’re willing to give a dog all of your love and a lot of your time in the future, it might be the perfect time to go out and adopt one! But before you do, it might be worth looking into the breeds of dogs there are out there, and which one might be right for you. 

So, to help you in your quest to find the best pooch to keep you company, we’ve listed a few thinking points below that you should go over. You never know what a dog is going to be like when you bring them home, but there’s a lot of research you can rely on to estimate how they’ll react to their new environment!

It Can Depend on Your Age

The breed of your dog you want to look into getting might just depend on how old or young you feel - some dogs have a lot of energy, some don’t, and some just love to cuddle with your on your lap, whilst others prefer to lie in front of the fireplace. Knowing the activity levels of the dog breeds you’re interested in ahead of time is key to making sure an adoption works out right, and you’re never feeling too pulled along by the pooch you’ve welcomed into your home.

The internet is a very handy place for research like this. If you want to go a bit more in depth right now, you can look into lists such as the best dog breeds for seniors, or even just ask around your friends who seem to be dog veterans for their experiences with different breeds.

It Definitely Depends on the Space You Have!

If you’re going to bring a breed of dog home that generally tends to grow to a large size, such as a German Shepherd or a Husky, you’re going to need the space to keep up with them. When dogs grow, they grow fast, and that little puppy in your arms won’t stay that way forever!

Which means you need to do some research into what kinds of dogs would fit into your home. Of course, if you have a tiny apartment, you can still bring a large sized dog home, but it will be a tight fit, and they will require a lot more exercise than usual.

And Don’t Forget About the Time You Spend at Home

A dog shouldn’t be left on their own for too long, so keep that in mind - you’ll need to be around for your dog, no matter what breed they are. If you work a lot away from home, or if you travel a lot, it might be best to wait until your life settles down a little more before adopting.

If you’re looking to get a dog, you’ll definitely need to pick by breed. Some are better for your way of life than others.
