How do I know which dog breed is right for me?
The first thing you need to do, is take a good at your own lifestyle.
Some questions you could ask yourself would be:
- Am I active?
- Am I a person who likes to be in the house, relaxing with a good movie?
- Do I enjoy spending time outdoors?
- Do I have a big yard?
- Do I have lots of extra time in my life?
Different breeds suit different lifestyles, it's just that simple. A Husky, for instance, enjoys spending time outdoors, they love to go for long walks, play in the snow, run around for... HOURS, and are incredibly playful, whereas, let's say... a Bulldog for example, is much more laid back, is happy with short walks, and quite content to relax on the couch, with no need for daily runs, or excessive exercise.

I did a bit of research, and came up with 2 lists of dog breeds, to try and give you an idea of what the right breed could possibly be for you.
List #1 - Most active breeds:
- Siberian Husky
- Border Collie
- Shetland Sheep Dog
- Doberman Pinscher
- Australian Cattle Dog
- Jack Russell Terrier
- Bernese Mountain Dog
List #2 - Least active breeds:
- Basset Hound
- Bichon Frise
- Great Dane
- Shih Tzu
- Chinese Crested
Doing your research can help prevent another dog from becoming a statistic in a shelter. Know your pets, know your breeds!— Jenna Drady (@HuskyCrazed) August 8, 2015
