Are you searching for a dog that will be your best friend? There are so many breeds that this decision can be quite difficult! Your choice should be based on your personality, needs and lifestyle, because when you make a mistake then what can you do then? You may need a dog for guarding your property but end up having a lovely creature that trusts every stranger. Or you can look for a harmless puppy, perfect for your children’s company, but the ‘cute puppy’ turns out to be an aggressive beast. That's why, before you purchase a dog, look over this article.
Good choice: If your house is full of valuable things and you often go out, then you need a proper protection for your property. Dobermans, Rottweilers and German Shepherds are the best choices! They are not the most friendly breeds you can meet, for sure… But if you are afraid of any criminals than purchase one of these types of a dog! Just remember to have a notice on your gate, in case that a postman doesn’t see a dog…
Bad choice: Retrievers are less likely to react when the invader is breaking into your house, they just don’t have those special protective instincts.

Perfect for your kids
Good choice: Retrievers can be bad at protecting your house but they are an excellent choice when it comes to playing with your kids! They are quite obedient and submissive and won’t scare your kids by rapid barking. But if your kids prefer smaller dogs then Beagles will be also suitable.
Bad choice: Pekingese seem to be quite innocent but they also require a lot of attention so there is a danger of them attacking you if they feel too neglected.
For sporty owners
Good choice: Do you like running and generally spending a lot of time outdoors? If yes, then you need a dog that feels the same. Settler or a Pointer will meet your expectations as they are highly athletic and energetic. Your morning jogging or hiking will satisfy you both.
Bad choice: You shouldn’t purchase Pugs or Bulldogs. You can even hurt them and cause injuries as their knee joints are not adapted to any more excessive exercise. They will pant and breathe heavily and for sure, that won’t be a pleasure for these dogs.

When you work a lot…
Good choice: If you spend more time in your work than in your house then you need a dog that will be patiently waiting for you at home. Basset Hound or a Shar Pei, are those kinds of breeds that will provide you with peaceful companionship and won’t get angry or aggressive if you keep coming back home very late.
Bad choice: Retrievers or Collies shouldn’t appear in your house as they are too sociable to endure such hardships as spending long hours alone! They would be very sad!
For your grandparents
Good choice: Elderly people need dogs that are not too demanding. As your grandparents may have difficulties with running or just working out outdoors then Charles Spaniels, Pugs or Cavalier King breeds will be the best companions for them! They don’t require intense workout to be happy and entertained.
Bad choice: The dogs that match sporty owners' lifestyle, such as Settler or a Pointer, can be a big challenge for your grandparents. They need a lot of activities outdoors and elderly people are less likely to meet their demands.

When you already have a pet
Good choice: Do you already have some pets at home? Whether it’s a cat or a parrot, your new dogs should be able to accept their presents and get along with them. If you don’t take it into account then you risk some aggressive confrontations or even serious injuries. Spaniels, Retrievers, and Collies are an excellent choice! They can easily adapt to the environment full of other pets and will cohabit with them without any problems.
Bad choice: Terriers are the worst choice. Why? As their instincts are defensive and aggressive, they may consider your other pets as enemies.
For a hot climate
Good choice: The best choice is probably a Terrier as hot temperatures are not a big problem for them.
Bad choice: Actually, there are a few dog breeds that have difficulties with adapting to the places with a hot climate. So if you live in hot places, then you shouldn’t purchase such breeds as Malamutes, St. Bernards, Boxers or Huskies as they won’t be able to function in this environment. They can even suffer some diseases if they stay in a hot climate for too long.

For a cold climate
Good choice: You need a dog with thick fur and a lot of body fat. Huskies, Malamutes or Samoyeds seem to be an obvious choice. Their fur will help them survive harsh weather conditions and very low temperatures. Actually, they will even enjoy playing in the snow and going out for long walks. Their bodies are so well adapted to such climate that it won’t cause any serious damage or disease.
Bad choice: Dobermans are definitely not a good choice. Instead of thriving, they will suffer a lot.
When it will be your first dog
Good choice: Will it be your first dog? If yes, then you should look for a dog that you can train easily and teach important things that he should obey in your house. Probably you don’t want to get annoyed when the dog doesn’t understand your cues and behave the other way round. In this case, you need a Labrador, Poodle or a Border Collie. They are very intuitive when it comes to understanding any nonverbal commands.
Bad choice: Forget about Terriers or Schnauzers. They are quite demanding and you’d better have the more expert knowledge, experience, and patience to deal with them.
