The right dog for you

What’s the right dog for you? All dogs will be friendly and loving companions with the right training, attention and care.  Dog breeds have different behaviours and needs however and it’s important to consider that before making the decision to bring a dog into your family.

Do you want an active dog who loves to play outside and needs a lot of exercise?  And importantly, do you have the time to provide that?  Or do you want a smaller dog who prefers to be indoors and doesn’t enjoy long walks?  Dog breeds run the entire spectrum and it can be challenging to make the right decision.  To the rescue!  This chart looks complicated at first and is a little playful but it is a pretty good way to navigate through the different dog breeds to get a better feeling for what the right dog is for you:
