How to choose the right breed of dog for you

A dog is a huge investment - this could be a part of your family for the next 10 - 20 years!

Choosing the right breed of dog is the first and most important step in getting a dog.

Please do not buy a dog on impulse or from a pet shop!

Do you need help to find the breed that would be most suitable to your situation?

Do you want a dog that will be a wonderful addition to your life?

  • All dogs are individuals like people, so any individual dog may differ from the 'norm' for a particular breed
  • All dogs have psychological needs - they become bored and unhappy if their needs are not met
  • All dogs need a regular, balanced diet to remain healthy
  • All dogs need some kind of exercise
  • All dogs need time and attention from their human owners
  • You do not need a 'pure bred' dog, but you should know what breeds your puppy comes from to understand what kind of dog it is likely to grow into and what needs it will have for size and exercise.

Whilst there is information on the net to help you choose a breed of dog, there are some great features of this tool that sets it apart:

  • it is saved right onto your own computer (you can save it to a USB stick and take it home if using another computer)
  • it returns information on the temperament of the breeds that may suit your needs
  • it returns information on the size, exercise needs and health issues of dog breed
  • it returns links to more online information and photos of the breed that may suit your need and more
  • you can look up any particular dog breed or answer questions to find breeds that suit you
