What is the perfect dog for you?

Are you considering getting a dog? So how will you know which one is the perfect companion for you? Every dog is different and so is its human counterpart. In fact, it can be daunting to find a canine best friend that perfectly matches your personality and lifestyle because there are lots of dog breeds to choose from.  Or if you already have one, maybe you want to confirm if the dog breed you have chosen is indeed the perfect match for you. It’s time to find out!

Perfect guard dogs

If you want a pooch to protect and guard your family and your home, then a Rottweiler, Doberman pinscher, or German shepherd is the perfect dog companion for you.



Perfect dogs for families

For those people who prefer family-friendly dogs, a Labrador or Golden Retriever is definitely an excellent family dog as both do well in families with children. In addition, they are super pets for a big family with a bunch of kids or even families with infants and toddlers due to the fact that they are generally friendly and non-aggressive. What’s more, these soft and fluffy animals love to cuddle. Who can resist that?

Best dogs for athletic and active pet owners

Do you live an active and athletic lifestyle? If the answer is a big YES then you’ll probably want a dog companion who shares the same zest for activity and exercise. There are some breeds that are inherently designed to play, jump and run. Let’s say you are looking for a fine partner for running. Then you may consider getting a Setter or Pointer. On the other hand, if you prefer a smaller breed, a Jack Russell Terrier loves to run and can keep up with its owners without issue.

Lazy and cuddly lapdogs

Do you prefer a pooch who likes to just laze around the house and be your furry cuddle buddy? Therefore, a Maltese or a French bulldog can make a great lapdog due to their affectionate and easy-going attitude.



Dogs compatible for busy singles

Are you always out and on the go or working full time? In that case, you might consider getting a dog that can fit with your busy lifestyle. For this reason, a Shar-Pei or a Basset Hound is one of the most independent dog breeds that can deal with being home alone and would probably spend most of their time sleeping.

Best dogs for seniors

On the other hand, for older adults or senior citizens who are enjoying the retired life, a calm and already trained dog can be a perfect match as a dog companion. Consider getting a Pug, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, or a Boston terrier.

Dogs for an apartment

If you are living in an apartment or a small space, hence a good-tempered and low-energy dog who rarely barks such as a Bulldog or Yorkshire terrier is a perfect choice and considered one of the best apartment dogs. Not only will your new furry best friend fit in your tiny home, but it will also happily nap on the couch.



Dog breeds for multi-pet homes

Want to add another furry best friend to your pet bunch? Dog-friendly and social, Collies, Spaniels, and Retrievers are the perfect match with your other pets. With their fun-loving and playful nature, these dog breeds pair well with other canines.

Perfect dog breeds for hot weather

Do you live in a place that is hot and humid? Most terriers are sunshine-loving pooches and can thrive in hot weather.

Cold-weather dog breeds

On the contrary, for a pet companion that can withstand a colder climate, look for a dog breed with more body fat and a thick double coat. Genetically designed to live outside in the winter, a Husky, St. Bernard, Samoyed or Malamute is one of the best cold-tolerant canines.


Hypoallergenic dogs

Looking for a pet friend that won’t give you the sniffles or canine-induced allergy attacks? A Bishon Frise or Shih Tzu is sneeze-free, low maintenance, low shedding, and simply adorable. What more can you ask for?
