What breed of dog to choose?
What you need to think about when choosing a four-legged friend:
The area of your home is a factor that determines the size of the future pet. There is a rule: “a big dog – a lot of space, a little space – a small dog.” You can imagine what kind of trouble can add a St. Bernard, who will be lodged in a one-room apartment. Therefore, the situation here needs to be assessed soberly and impartially. And, of course, here the owners of apartments with a limited area and a complete dependence on neighbors can only envy the owners of private households, for which this limiter is simply absent.
Among the small breeds that easily fit in a city apartment can be attributed Chihuahua, Maltese, Toy Poodle, etc. Those who wish to buy a large dog can choose from such as Doberman, Great Dane, Newfoundland, etc. If you don’t quite understand the rocks, it is better to consult with the seller about the size of the adult.
It is very important that the characters of the owner and the dog are similar. The idea is that the fighting dog breed (Airedale, Bull Terrier) can bring many disappointments to people who love peace and quiet. “Live”, frisky breed, easily retains its shape, but a walk with such a dog will be a joy for mobile and energetic people. Future hunters – dachshunds, spaniels, terriers are more likely to be phlegmatic to their owners. And if your pet is an official breed (collie, German shepherd), and poorly trained, then wait for additional trouble. For people looking for a calm, peace-loving breed, you can advise a taxi, a poodle, a St. Bernard, etc. Despite their size, the Serbernar and the Newfoundand are calm breeds and good friends.
Why buy a dog?
So it happened with time that there is a classification of dog breeds: hunting, service, shepherd’s, watch-keeping, room-decorative, companion dogs, sledges, etc. If you still decide to have a four-legged friend, then objectively answer yourself the question: “ What for?”. Hunting, security, just for comfort in the house or it will be your faithful friend and helper, be sure to analyze their features and this will make your choice easier.
Guard dogs – German, Caucasian Shepherd Dogs, East Siberian Laika, Rottweiler, Moscow Watchdog, etc.
Hunting dogs – Bavarian Mountain Blood, Hannover Blood, Bloodhound, Kurzhaar, Dachshund, Spaniel, etc
Ornamental – American Cocker Spaniel, English Bulldog, English, Manchester Toy Terrier, Affenpinscher, Belgian, Brussels griffin, Pug, Shih Tzu, etc
And never forget that a dog is a friend of man. Treat her with love and care. Remember that each breed has its own characteristics.
