How to Pick the Right Dog Breed For Your Home

Energy level -

The first thing to work out is what energy level can you cope with.  If you don't have time to go for long walks multiple times a day then don't pick a dog with high energy, if you can, go for it!  If you would rather not, pick a dog with lower energy.  It is also important to decide how much time you have for training as this can take a long time for a high energy dog.

Coat Type -

Picking a coat type is pretty simple!  If you love long-haired breeds and have the time to keep him groomed and pay for regular haircuts then get one.  Along haired dog cuts down on the loose hair around the house.  If you prefer short-haired dogs or don't want to groom then you will have to deal with the shedding or a short-haired dog.

Size -

The size f your new dog really depends on your preference, house/garden and if you will ever need to leave your dog in someone else's care.  If you live in a small house with a small garden or leave town often and someone else will care for your dog you are better to get a smaller dog.  If you are able to provide lots of space and don't travel often then a big dog will fit into your life!
