We all life our life differently, and when we want to add a furry friend to the mix, it’s important to choose the right dog breed for your lifestyle to ensure a happy and harmonious home for both you and your doggo! Here are some things to take into consideration when making that choice.

Activity Level

Do you have an active lifestyle? If so, you will need a dog breed that can keep up with you. Some high-energy breeds include Border Collies, Siberian Huskies, and Labrador Retrievers. If you are more laid-back, you may want to consider a lower-energy breed such as a Bulldog, Basset Hound, or Greyhound.

Living Arrangements

Do you live in an apartment or a house? If you live in an apartment, you will need a smaller breed that does not require a lot of space. Some good choices for apartment dwellers include Chihuahuas, Shih Tzus, and Yorkshire Terriers. If you live in a house, you have more options, but you will still need to consider the size of your yard and how much time you are willing to spend exercising your dog. Some good choices for house dogs include Golden Retrievers, German Shepherds, and Bernese Mountain Dogs.

Family Situation

Do you have small children? If so, you will need a dog breed that is good with kids. Some good choices for families with children include Golden Retrievers, Beagles, and Poodles.

Grooming Needs

Some dog breeds require more grooming than others. If you are not able to commit to regular brushing and bathing, you will need to choose a low-maintenance breed. Some low-maintenance breeds include Poodles, Schnauzers, and Shih Tzus.

Once you have considered these factors, you can start to narrow down your choices. It is also a good idea to do some research on different breeds to learn more about their temperament, health, and history.

It is important to remember that every dog is an individual, and there is no guarantee that a dog of a particular breed will exactly mirror everything you’ve read about it, so if you get the chance to meet the dog before a final decision, don’t hesitate! And don’t forget there are many wonderful dogs waiting to be adopted from shelters and rescue organizations. These dogs come in all shapes and sizes, and could also be a breed you are considering!
