Man’s best friend comes in all shapes, sizes, and colors. Dogs are loyal pets that can be easily trained and a great asset to your family. There are many breeds to choose from and the best thing to do is examine the different groups of breeds to find the best breed for your family.
- Sporting Group– This group consists of popular breeds like retrievers, spaniels, setters, and pointers. They are often used for hunting and have a high trainability. They are gentle in nature and are great family pets. Being great with families also makes this group excellent candidates for service pets.
- Non-Sporting Group– This group is comprised of dogs that are slightly too big to be considered a toy group breed. Breeds like bulldogs, poodles, and a Bichon Frise are in this group. They have different temperaments and this breed can be very unpredictable.
- Toy Group– The little dogs such as Pomeranians, Chihuahuas, and pugs belong in this group. These dogs are loyal and intelligent. They love attention and aside from their vocal nature, they are great dogs if you are willing to be with them a lot.
- Mixed Breeds– If you can’t decide which breed you like more you can always look into a dog that is a mix of your favorite breeds. These dogs usually outnumber pure-bred dogs. These dogs are great but you have to do your homework on the temperament they could possibly have according to the mix of breeds.
Dogs can be a great asset to you and your family. Whether you are looking for a loyal companion or a pet that can help you hunt, you can never go wrong with a dog.
