Find the Dog For You

Find the Dog For You

If you are looking for the right dog for your lifestyle you need to ask yourself some questions.  Be honest with yourself, don’t cut corners and let your heart rule your head.

Take into account how much time you have got to walk your dog each and every day come rain or shine, is the time you have available suitable for your chosen breed?

If you are a couch potato and wanting to find a low energy dog, a high energy dog is not for your lifestyle.  If you are an energetic person walking mile upon mile a low energy small legged dog might not be the ideal match for you either.

Are you an apartment dweller with no outside space available without leaving your apartment?  Or have you got a large garden and access to open walking space for exercising your pooch?

Activity for your dog is not the same as exercise needs, every dog needs stimulation and this can be achieved if you are prepared to play with your dog as well as build in walk time.

Bull Mastiffs and St Bernards, are, despite their size, low activity dogs.  Don’t be fooled by the fact they can often outweigh their owners they are more than happy to sleep in front of the fire, of course after they rescue the ski-er from the mountain.

Consider your needs and that of your preferred breed carefully before committing to a dog.  For more information speak to a veterinarian or visit the Discover Dog show in London for a chat with breed specific breeders/owners.
