Dog Breed Selector

Select the right dog breed for you

Owning a dog is a wonderful thing. Not only do dogs provide lasting companionship and unconditional love, they’ve also been known to lower blood pressure and reduce stress. And of course, a dog will make sure you get out and take walks every day. Living with a dog has also been known to boost the social skills and confidence of children and adults alike.

That said, the decision to bring home a dog warrants careful consideration. Dogs come in all shapes and sizes, and not all breeds are the same. Some dogs need more exercise than others, and some breeds may be predisposed to living with a family. Plus, some dogs are great for apartments, and some need a little more space to feel at home.
