Dog Breeds

Choosing a dog to add to the family is an exciting prospect, and a crucial part of this decision is choosing a breed.

Most people already have a favourite in mind, maybe based on looks or what their parents had while they were growing up, but some people don’t realise that there’s is more of a difference between dog breeds than looks alone. Different dog breeds vary hugely in temperament, making them more or less suitable for different home set ups, whereas some are less challenging to train. You could even choose a breed based on whether or not they are likely to trigger allergies, or their size.

There is a perfect breed for any prospective owner, and doing your research is key to a long and happy life with your new best friend. Whether you fall in love with a pedigree pup or a little crossbreed, there are thousands of potential options, so we’re here to help you find out more about all the different dogs out there.

There are hundreds of pure breeds out there, not to mention crosses and mixes, and every dog is an individual. However, knowing their genetic makeup can give you some insights as to how they might behave as they grow up, and what their particular strengths may turn out to be.
