What do you think is the best type of dog? me and my family are trying to chose one.
That depends on your specific needs. I'm partial to the Labrador retriever, but I wouldn't get one as house dog.
The best type of dog would be one that would fit into your family. If your an active family you could pick an active breed, if your not an active family it would be better to chose a dog that is not so active. Hopefully when you do decide,you will go to an animal shelter or rescue group and adopt a dog. There are a lot of deserving dogs waiting for a loving home. Having a dog is a big responsibility,one that shouldn't be taken lightly.I hope this helps.
There is no "best type of dog." period. If you want a dog you consider your living arrangements, space, time, money. Do you have someone to be home with a new dog or puppy? Do you have enough room for a big dog? Can everyone agree on the one cute perfect beautiful puppy for the whole family?
Can you afford the vet bills, food, beds, toys and the rest of the stuff a dog wants and needs? There are things only you and your family know about what you each want with a dog. Little ones are cute, but they can get stressed with too much activity. Little ones can get stepped on. Big dogs need more exercise most of the time, who is going to run and play with your new big dog? Every day? For five or ten years?
So, I regret to say, there is no perfect answer to this question. But think about the questions raised and then you and your family can make an intelligent and caring decision.
Hi it depends on how much experience you have with dogs, what kind of home you live in and what your family consists of -for example do you have very young children/toddlers.
Some of the best - and the most beautiful dogs - on the planet are the cross-breeds. Some people can be quite snobbish about cross-breeds, but I've had cross-breeds as well as pedigrees, and they are absolutely brilliant dogs and were very good with children. So if this is your first dog then perhaps a cross-breed would be suitable. If it is a pedigree your after then some of the best family dogs are labradors and labrador retrievers. A friend of mine has Boxers and they are daft and full of fun, and very good with the family.
Some people first time round also go for the Collie breeds. But unless you are very experienced I would shy away from the Collies. I have had Border, Smooth and Rough Collies and they are brilliant dogs and very good with children. But you need to be able to exercise them a great deal or you find they get bored, destructive and can get nippy. It is also better to have had some experience in handling dogs before getting the high energy breeds such as Collies, German Shepherds and so on.
Lastly, dogs on the whole do respond better to family life if there is a garden they can muck about in - or part of a garden. But make sure it is secure. Hope this helps a bit.
Choose one from your local gassing faculty and if not there any no-kill shelter. The appreciation will be returned ten-fold and you'll have one of the best & loving friends you'll ever have.
It is a matter of liking. As for my family, we chose silky terrier as it is most suitable. When choosing your dog, you will have the nice feeling when you pat or touch it.

I have had German Shepards, mixed breeds, and more recently a Siberian Husky and Shiba Inu. So far, I am most impressed with the Siberian Husky. She has the nice spitz look, is a nice medium size, and absolutely loves people. When we go on walks she always likes meeting people and gives them her...
