The Right Dog Breed Makes a Big Difference

Singles, active young couples, families with children, senior citizens – each household will have its own lifestyle, preferences and needs. Dog breeds have specific characteristics that can make them a good or poor fit for a home. For example, some have been bred for centuries to guard, others to hunt, and others to be cuddled lapdogs. Some require a firm, dominant owner and some need a gentle touch. For best success, the breed should match the home and its people.
