Have you decided what kind of dog breed you want to adopt? Different dog breeds have different personalities, and it is better to know them prior to the adoption so that you won’t regret your choice. Let us discuss further below!
Get a Dog from a Trusted Breeder
If you want to buy a puppy, you should buy directly from a breeder or breeder. Pay attention to the cleanliness of the environment where you buy the dog. If it’s dirty and smelly, it’s best to look for another place because this indicates that the breeder is not hygienic and can contain germs and bacteria so the dog will not grow properly.
Pay Attention to the Breed’s Size
Pay attention to the size of your house in choosing the type of dog you want. You need to make sure that your home and garden are large enough. Large dogs need huge space to move around. Otherwise, you can stress out and bark a lot.
In theory, if you don’t have a large house but still want to take care of a large dog, you have to allocate your time and energy to walk him/her outdoors. The dogs’ size is divided into several parts according to body weight measured when the dog reaches adulthood: Toy (1-10 kg), medium (10-25 kg), Large (25-50 kg) and Giant (50-75 kg).
Know the Popular Breeds
Now that you know the basic factors to consider before having a dog in your family, let’s learn these four most popular dog breeds among dog owners:
The Golden Retriever
Talking about a pet dog is indeed not complete if it does not discuss the Golden Retriever. This type of dog is still a favorite dog with some prominent characteristics: Beautiful, loyal, friendly to foreigners and other dogs, easy to train, eager to be invited to play, and smart. The Golden Retriever must be ‘given a job’ to feel at home, such as picking up a newspaper from the front door or waking his master every morning. Although it cannot be relied on as a guard dog because it is not sensitive enough, a Golden Retriever is still popular among dog owners.
English Springer Spaniel
The purpose of English Springer Spaniel’s life is to please the owner. He is also easy to feel happy. For instance, a simple routine like bringing him about 30 minutes for outdoor activities every day is enough. Springer Spaniel is also not fierce towards small children and other dogs. In addition, he is also known as a dog that doesn’t often bark. His life span is also quite long, can reach 12 to 14 years.
In the United States, Labrador Retriever is the third most favorite dog breed. They are active, friendly, and easy to teach. I was shocked to hear how long an average dog can hold their bladder through Puppy Pointers. Labrador Retriever so genius, it is widely used as a service and therapy dog for older adults and disabled people. Moreover, Labrador Retriever is also smart enough to be your hunting companion! This type of dog is very suitable for active families who don’t mind doing a lot of outdoor activities with pets.
Although not as pretty as the other dogs on this list, the Boston Terrier is also worth your consideration. This breed is not afraid of strangers and sensitive enough to be counted on as a guard dog. Boston Terrier is a type of dog that is energetic, agile, smart, obedient, and people-oriented. One well-known characteristic of the Boston Terrier is his passion for eating anything. Therefore, you have to be careful and monitor your Boston Terrier intensely.
