How do you choose the best dog breed for your retirement?
In other words, what dog breeds are good for old people and why...
For me greyhounds and whippets are the pick. They are low maintenance, hardly bark, don't smell, are gentle and love a walk but are just as happy to lay around all day.
Collies are nice dogs. They are very low-keyed, love people and easy to take care of. Collies are also known to have great intelligence. I prefer larger dogs, myself. However, some people enjoy holding their dogs while watching TV, for instance. Then you might want something smaller. If you don't want a "barker," the Bischon is a pretty good dog. They are very friendly and love to be held. Also, they do not shed so it's less vacuuming. They love walks, but are happy to stay by your side.
