Have you been thinking about getting a new four legged friend, but you are not able to make up your mind as there are many dog breeds out there. We probably are not the first to admit, but choosing a dog breed can be a bit on the complicated side. You have the sporting breeds, large breeds, small breeds and so on. It just seems like the breed of dogs are unlimited. We would like to help you pick out your dog, but only you know what you need. Are you aware of the fact that there are a couple hundred different breeds. There are some questions you need to ask yourself as you are searching for the right dog.
To start with, do you live in an apartment that is small? If this is true, then you should rule out those large dogs. Instead, you should settle for the Toy group, such as the Yorkshire Terrier or the Terrier group. If you live in a large area, then it would be a good idea to have a dog.
Do you have children who live with you? Those dogs that are small can easily be injured by children, so it may be best to have a large dog. Take note that no matter what, you should supervise the child when they are around the dog. This is to benefit both the dog and the child.
How much exercise will the breed require? If you have a fenced in yard, then an energetic breed such as a pit bull or hound would be a great idea. However, if you have a small yard, then you should look into the dogs that are not high in energy.
No matter what the breed of dog is, you should always plan on taking the dog for a walk during the day time. You should also look at the responsibility that is required for each breed. Some require lots of grooming and some do not.
