What breed of dog Beagle, Boston terrier, St. Bernard, Bernese Mountain Dog, Great Dane, Greyhound, Golden Retriever, Miniature Poodle, Toy Poodle, Pomeranian, Bulldog or any of the other Four hundred plus breeds of dog. Would be good for you.
We talked about this on an earlier post, there still is plenty of information that you should have. It’s our hope that by giving you enough information about dogs. You will be able to make a more informed decision on what size dog, not what breed of dog. Will be a better and safer fit for your family.
We have to talk about exactly, what level of experience you may have. I mention this, because over the years I have helped thousands and thousands of pet owners. Solve the problems they were having with their dog. Almost in every single case, the dog owners said, ” I never had a dog that did this before”. That tells me that they don’t have as much experience as they think they do.
Look at it this way. Most of us spend much more time with our car every day, then we do with our dog. Yet who fixes your car when it needs work, you. Of course not, the car guy does. My point is, we have much more experience with our car and we still don’t know how to fix that. You can send your car out to be fixed, but you can’t send out your dog to be fixed. And yes I know that there are plenty of dog training places that say they can do fix your dog. If you send him to them.
I will tell you right now, it does not work. Because you are the one that has to learn to solve your dogs problems. Unless of course, the dog trainer is willing to come live with you for awhile.
If you are single or there are only adults living in your home, then maybe you can choose a puppy that’s not a small breed dog. The reason is at some point you will have problems with your dog. And the problems that I’m talking about is when your dog starts using his mouth for more than eating. So you have to ask yourself, at that point would you rather deal with a fifteen pound dog or a sixty, seventy, or eighty pound dog.
I hope this has been of some help to you. Don’t worry, I’ll have plenty more on this subject.
Thank You… The Spirit Dog
