Choosing The Right Dog Breed

 

Gracie and Rob

The dog you choose will probably be your dog for the at least 10-15 years. Choosing the right dog is important. You will have to choose between 285 breeds that require different degrees of exercise, training and grooming needs. This is something you have to consider. You may like a dog because of the way it looks are like the curtness of a little puppy. But before you pick your dog, look at the characteristics of how you live and if the dog will be a good match. My dog is my partner in pest control. He loves find bugs.   Our charts will help you narrow down your choice for your Waggy Tongue friend. Choose wisely.
