Default Finding The Right Dog Breed

To ensure that your puppy fits in with your lifestyle begin by asking
yourself these questions:

a) How much time can I spend with my dog, a social creature who craves
companionship? - If your time is limited donít get a breed which can
become dependent on their owners.

b) How much exercise can I give my dog? - If you hate exercise, buy a
small dog happy with a short walk. If you like to walk the mountains
all day long get a dog breed which likes a lot of exercise.

c) How much grooming can I do? - If you hate grooming, buy a short-
haired dog.

d) How much training can I give? - If you have limited time, choose a
breed known for ease of training.

e) How much room do I have? - If you live in a small apartment donít
get a large dog!

f) What characteristics do I want in my dog? - Think of words like
independent, energetic, submissive, affectionate, protective, quiet,
funny or sociable. Try to match them to the characteristics of your
family members. Your dog will fit in much better if you do.
