How To Know The Dog Breed Best For You

The Dog they say is Man's best friend. Dogs are known to be very sociable animals that humans are very much used to. Now, if you're looking for the dog breed that best suites your personality best, you'll need to ask yourselves some questions like:

1. Size of the dog I want

2. What I want the dog as(whether as a security,pet sporting, e.t.c

3. Do I have enough funds and space

4. Do I have enough time to take care of the dog After considering these questions and you seem to be on the right track then let's analyse them together. Here in Nigeria, I noticed people will prefer getting a large breed dog to earn them respect or a little bit of fame, but, I want you all reading to know that its not actually about how big the dog is. In the actual sense the bigger the dog the higher the funds used in maintaining it. But if you have sufficient funds you're good to go.

Yeah, what do you want your dog to be used for,if you want a security dog, it'll be advised to get a large breed dog to at least create a bit of fear to any intruder/trespasser. If you need a pet dog(popularly called palour dogs), you'll have to get a small sized dog that'll be able to move around easily in the house and acts well with children(if you have), although there are minor cases of large dogs being used as a parlour dog here in Nigeria, to me it'll be a bit advisable not to use large dogs as parlour dogs(but if you insist ensure to keep them away when people come visiting so as not to frighten them. Sporting dogs are used for hunting and by hunting it does not necessarily mean large sized dogs.

Sporting dogs are classified into pointers and retrievers, but let us not divert attention. Funds and space are very essential in the purchase and care of a dog, as large sized dogs need more funds and space than the space and funds needed by a smaller sized dog. Yes, time. Time is also an essential thing as dogs can be likened to children as they need time to have an intimate bond with its owner. I wish you good luck as you go purchase your friendly furry canine.

Do you have a dog? what type of dog? how has it been keeping dog with you? What are your recommendation and opinion on this topic? Kindly share with us.

  • Well, I believe dogs are pets to be properly taken care of because they can be so smart and friendly especially when you are bored or have less work to do. So, choosing the right dogs that suite you is very important and most importantly making sure these dogs are well taken care of is one big task every dog owner should be ready to engage in.

  • Dogs are always a man's best friend and one needs to know whether he needs a dog for security purposes or for the purpose of being a pet.i think dogs are best as pets than security purposes because you can't really control them to an extent.

  • This is Kim. She's a terrier breed and keeping her has actually helped me and my friends out of alot of depressing situations. She makes us smile, angry, laugh and even got us some new friends. Keeping a dog is really fun thing to do but make sure u can shoulder the responsibilities or else u'll end up killing urself or the dog.

  • Dogs are most beautiful and very friendly set of animals God created. If your dog is properly trained believe me you're getting the best company ever. They're so funny, always wanting to play and they have huge appetite tho. Am a fan of small dogs especially the breed Chihuahua ( their barks can be alarming tho).

  • Dog, to some people is an ordinary animal. And to some people it is pet to them. While some people use Dog for house security. While some Hunter have dog to use for security at farm. But to Muslim it is not good for their religion. while Traditional religion used it for sacrifice.

  • Well, I don't have any idea what best dog breeds can be because I don't have or keep dogs. I don't like dogs for once. Infact, I stopped visiting my friend because of the dogs in the house. I could remember the day a dog bite my brother when we are small. My parents spent a lot of money to get him curred of the dog rebis . It was terrible. So, I don't like dogs and I will not keep them.

  • I for one love dogs

    I even have a friend who had a German Shepherd dog, sometimes when the dog refuses to eat, he uses spoon to feed the dog, that's to show how special some specific breed of dog can be to some people, I love German Shepherd dogs so much because they are extremely intelligent and I believe they are the reason why they say Dogs are man best friend, in terms of animals

  • I have always wanted a German Shepard dog, not too big and not too small,i have seen movies where they get in bed with their owner just to wake them, and when someone raise their voice at their owner, the dog appear to be vexed and might start to bark, so my own conclusion, I'd like to have a dog that would be as a pet and act as my security guard.

  • Dogs are nice let, but I don't cherish having one for myself. Again, one should be able to get a great specie of good dog breed with GE listed points therein above. Police dogs are really good at what they are called.

  • I am not really a dog fan but I really like the fact that they serve as real security agents. But what I will say is that if you know you cannot take proper care of a dog don't bother buying one to avoid your dog starving or infested with fleas and other insects that live in thier skin. Please don't do pass yourself.

  • Taking care of dog is different due to one's perspective while to some, it's just a let and an animal to some. Anyway, I see this as a list that will help and guide thise interested in dog and how to take proper care of it.

  • I lowvo dogs but I don't have one yet. I actually prefer cats. I plan to get a dog in the future but I'm not sure what breed to get. My neighbor has a dog called Spark. Spark is a Caucasian and he is the absolute best; the only thing is that they keep him as a "security" dog, even though he never does any actual securing of the compound. It's sad that people buy pets and leave them to suffer.

  • Dogs are man's best friend, they are always faithful either local ones or breed. They protect houses,escort man and kill other animals for man.So for any reason,dogs merit living with man at home. Just look for one you can afford to take care of local or breed.

  • Taking care of dog's needs a lot of patience and time devotion, dogs are nice and lovely to be around with. Sometimes i do share my secret with my dog cause he seems to listen and can't tell it to someone else

  • Dogs are wonderful living creature, they are the most friendly animal on the planet (from my point of view).

    One thing we should be very careful about raising a dog is the deadly pavo-virus that attacks and kill dogs within 4-5 days, I had a boxhead Rottweiler, a very aggressive and wicked one. But unfortunately, it was killed by this pavo virus. I've never heard of any dog that survived the attack of the pavo virus.
