2 Family friendly dogs
Family-friendly dogs if you have a big family full of kids or just welcome to newborn into this world it can seem challenging to pick the perfect dog breed of course pretty much every dog loves children but this would be a territory where a Labrador or golden retriever would be completely unbeatable they just adore children and are always ready to play nothing makes them happier than fetching a ball if their size intimidates you consider getting a beagle a Pekinese may not be a good choice though they usually prefer to be the only child in the family
3 Athletic dogs
Athletic dogs if you lead an active lifestyle and love going for a daily jog you probably wouldn't mind having a training buddy around would you consider getting a pointer or a setter since they're pretty much built for running if you want something a bit smaller a Jack Russell Terrier can be a good choice as well it's not a good idea to get an English Bulldog or a put they'll most probably struggle from over-exercising steer clear of any large stocky breeds to they may be too heavy and the frequent running can damage their joints
4 Lap dogs
Lap dogs what can be better than chilling out on the couch and watching some TV after a hard day's work if you're looking for a furry cuddle buddy who will always be happy to laze around on the sofa with you a French Bulldog or a Maltese is your perfect fit they'll always be by your side up or in your lap whenever you'rereading a nice book or watching your favorite TV show any working breeds are usually completely different they require lots of exercises and activity hence the name
5 Dogs for busy singles
dogs for busy singles a lot of people stop themselves from getting a dog because they're constantly out of the house of course generally speaking dogs are social animals but still, some breeds deal with being home alone better than others if this describes your lifestyle think about getting a shar-peior a basset hound retrievers and colleagues, on the other hand, aren't a good fit for you because they like and require constant socializing and don't forget that any dog needs love and attention you shouldn't get one if you won't be able to spend at least some time with your buddy hmm maybe you should get a cat most of the cats I know could care less if you're around or not but that's just me you haven't forgotten about the light bulbs have you keep looking
6 Dogs for seniors freshmen
dogs for seniors freshmen and sophomores get their own breeds if you're retired and have decided to welcome a dog into your home a good option for you would be a Boston Terrier a pug or a Cavalier King Charles Spanielboy that's a name they're affectionate and playful without requiring lots of exercises large dogs, however, can be a little tricky sometimes they're most active and need a lot of attention and a sufficient amount of exercise
7 Dog For apartment
for an apartment now if you' reliving in an apartment there are certain dog breeds that will suit you a bit more than others surprisingly the size doesn't always matter where it's about the dog's temperament if the dog is small it doesn't necessarily mean it'll be happy living in a smaller space consider getting a Yorkshire Terrier ora bulldog if you're interested in chihuahuas you might want to think twice here these dogs are tiny but very active
8 Dogs for multi-pet households
dogs for multi-pet households if you already have pets at home getting another one is pretty challenging and potentially dangerous you have to choose the breed carefully since you surely want all your pets to get along retrievers collies and spaniels are always happy to have a company to play with so they'll likely make a great match with your other pets terriers or breeds typically used in dogfighting can some times be a bit complicated without a doubt they have beautiful personalities but unfortunately fighter dogs were bred to be aggressive and competitive it's simply in their nature
9 Hot climates tolerance
that do well in hot climates most of us love summer but not all dogs will agree if you live in a place where it'shot most of the year you should think carefully about which dog to get surprisingly many Shorthair breeds would seriously struggle in a tropical climate since tolerance to hot weather depends not only on the coat but on the dog's facial structure and size as well most Terriers can take the heat and they come in lots of sizes at the same time st.BernardsSam Lloyd's and Boxers won't feel good in hot weather
10 Cold climates tolerance
dogs that do well in cold climates if where you live in the complete opposite of the type of climate we just talked about then your options obviously will be different breeds that prefer a colder climate normally have a thick double coat and more body fat so as you can probably guess a good choice is a st. Bernard Malamute husky orSamoyed they feel right at home in cold temperatures Dobermans, on the other hand, hate the cold
11 Hypoallergenic dogs
hypoallergenic dogs now if you're allergic to dog hair you've probably sworn off the idea of ever owning a cane aye but hold on there for sec dander which is attached to pet hair is the most common cause of pet allergies schnauzers can be a good choice since they're known for producing less dander than other breeds another good option is a poodle and any of its designers cross-breeds like Labradoodles poodle x' and the list of GMO doggie goes on just know that your allergies may still act up from time to time but overall it won't be as bad as with the other breedsGerman Shepherds aren't a good breed for you due to their dry skin which results in a lot of dander buildup the same goes for a long-haired breeze as well or you can always get the dog you want and then just double down on the allergy medicine as I did

When choosing a dog, there are several steps you must go through. First, make sure that you are ready for a dog in all aspects of your life. Analyze how much time a day you will be able to devote to him as well as your monetary situation. Dogs take money between vet bills, toys, food, emergencies, etc and if you cannot afford these then you do not need to purchase a dog at the moment. Once you decide a dog is right for you, it is time to determine which breed best fits your lifestyle. You can search online for different breeds and read the information on them to decide which best suits you.
Once you decide on a few different breeds, it is time to go to a breeder or pet store to play with some of the puppies. This will give you a feel as to what to expect and whether you think you could be happy. If breeding is not important to you, one of the most important decisions you could make is to adopt a dog from the pound. Pounds are overrun by homeless dogs and puppies every year that are put to sleep for no reason. This is also a cheaper means of getting your very own dog, and they usually turn out to be the most grateful! Evaluate your living arrangement before choosing a dog.
If you live in small quarters (like say an apartment) then a big dog, such as a German Shepard or Doberman Pincher is not for you. However, a smaller dog such as a Jack Russell Terrier would fit perfectly. Gage size of living by the size of dog; do not force a dog to live in a cramped environment when it does not have to.
Before buying your dog, it is good to get the necessary equipment first. You will need to buy a kennel for the dog to lie in when you are not at home and cannot leave it unsupervised. These vary in size, if you ask someone at a pet store they will be more than happy to tell you which size best fits your dog breed. You will also need to pick out a leash (there are many different types, choose what best fits you!). Collars are also a necessity, it allows you to take your dog for a walk as well as put its dog tag and vaccination tags on it.
You will also need to purchase extremely sturdy bowls for the dog to eat and drink from (or you can buy those nifty containers that fit over bowls and hold water and food). Buying the latter ensures that your dog will not go hungry or thirsty. Grooming supplies are also expensive; you will want to purchase dog (or puppy) shampoo, a grooming brush, dog toothbrush, and toothpaste. Do not forget to buy your dog food as well as toys; you want to keep your dog as happy as he can be! Make sure to dog-proof your home before taking your dog home. Get all trash and other easily accessible items out of the way before allowing your dog to roam in your home.
