“Dog breeds vary widely and there are many factors to consider when deciding which breed is right for your family. Common factors to consider include energy level, trainability, and maintenance. Energy level refers to how much your future dog may want or need to run, play, and train. Dogs of higher intelligence, such as the German Shepherd, tend to have high energy levels and therefore would not be a good fit for an owner who loves to relax on the couch after work. When it comes to trainability, not all dogs are equal. Some thrive on learning new tricks, while others, such as the Shih Tzu, may take a while to learn simple commands. It is a good idea to prepare your home for a new puppy before bringing them inside. Puppies are curious by nature and will find lots of things to chew and eat if you allow them. Finally, maintenance is a key component when owning any dog, but some are more work than others. If you can’t stand shedding or fur on the sofa, consider a Poodle or a designer Poodle mix, who don’t shed at all and have hypoallergenic coats. Taking these important differences into account will ensure a healthy, happy relationship between you and your new dog. Regardless of the breed you choose, remember that there is nothing more satisfying than the bond between a human and their dog.”CorrectIncorrect
