Choosing a dog should be based on the age of your children

Choosing the right breed of dog for your family. Requires simple logic.

If we have had significant experience raising dogs from puppies. And have successfully dealt with every single dog behavioral issue that presented itself small and large, by ourselves. Then what the hell are you reading this for !

On the other hand, if you have not personally dealt with a variety of dog problems. Those problems were addressed by someone else, say your mom or your dad. Then read on.

An awful lot is written on the subject of doing your breed research, before purchasing a puppy. I have said it before and I will continue to say it, “A dog is a dog”. An individual dogs inherited behavior traits that are more pronounced or intelligence level, are not determined by breed. They are determined by that particular dog.

Getting back to the subject on hand, choosing the right breed of dog. If you can find away to get past all the stuff we’ve been taught on the differences in breeds, then we will have started on the right track. If you have children, I would suggest you buy a breed of dog that your kids can easily handle. That means get a small breed of dog only.

This way if your dog does attempt to go after your kids, they can fight the dog off relatively easily with out serious injuries to themselves. How much luck do you think your children will have with a big dog ?

And God forbid, something ever did happen to your child, how would you ever forgive yourself. You never read about the small dogs viciously attacking someone in the news.  Although they bite people on a daily basis also, the severity of the wounds preclude them from being a newsworthy story.

So please choose carefully.

  1. I don’t think it matters so much what breed he gets. He did say that he’d probably get a mutt, and why not? I have had dogs all my life-both full bred and mixed, and have loved them all equally!
    Come by my blog and say hi to me and Maggie, my adorable little mixed ball of love!
