The very fact that you are reading this article means that you are giving the breed and the kind of dog to get for your home, a serious thought. You want the decision to be absolutely correct, and for that, you need information about the kinds of dogs that make for some of the best house dogs. The reasons to get a dog could be many, but the factors that finally decide the kind of dog breed you go in for could range from the type, size, and other factors like their shedding. In this following article we will take you through a comprehensive list of some of the best house dog breeds that will be decided upon their qualities.
Choosing a Dog―Factors at Play
There are several factors that you need to carefully study and ponder over before you decide to get that house dog for yourself. Here are some of the factors that you need to look into:
Size
The size of the dog is a very important factor that cannot, and should not be ignored. Small dogs are generally easier to care for and are less taxing for the owners in terms of finances. But then there are certain dog lovers who are just completely crazy about large dog breeds and need to have these in order to feel like they own dogs―which is of course their choice. But it has to be understood that it is more difficult to care for larger dogs. Also, if there are small children in the house, then it has to be considered whether getting a large dog is indeed the way to go.
Hair Shedding
Another factor that comes into the picture and is a very important factor to be looked into is that of hair shedding. Shedding of the hair can get to be quite a problem because it only means that there has to be that much more effort put into cleaning and maintenance. Along with that, there are higher chances of people getting allergies or other health conditions like asthma with the fur.
Personalities
The different personalities of the varied kinds of dogs needs to be taken into consideration as well. For example, some dogs bark a lot, which might not be taken well with some people. While some other dog breeds might be very energetic, requiring constant activity, and others might be low on the activity front. So it depends solely on the owners about the kind of dogs they want to have.
