Dog Breed Training

There are a great many dog breeds (at least 600 with only about 150 registered with the AKC) so when deciding on the ideal dog for your family, it's important that  you take time to consider what sort of companion would be the best fit in terms of lifestyle, size, energy levels, amount of exercise required, and temperament. 

Temperament

Your dog's temperament should be a match for yours. If you're a couch potato, obviously a highly energetic dog is not a good fit for your household. Then again, if you would like a dog that is always ready to play games or go for a walk, and will follow you everywhere, you should choose one of the more active breeds.

Size

Something to bear in mind is that large dogs are more expensive to keep as they eat more plus their medications cost more. 

Do you have the necessary amount of time to exercise your dog? Most medium to large dogs require one or two hours of exercise every day whereas toy dogs such as Chihuahuas, Maltese, Pugs, and Yorkshire Terriers can get sufficient exercise running around your home or yard.

A large dog is probably not practical if you live in an apartment. Apart from the space issues, large dogs cannot use litter trays so it would be difficult for you to take your dog outside to relieve himself every few hours.

Dog Breed Training

Do you have the time and patience to train your dog? If not, do you have the resources to hire a professional dog trainer? Some dogs are easier to train than others; for example, Dachshunds and Beagles can be stubborn and difficult to train, and Chihuahuas are notoriously difficult to potty train. If you are easily frustrated, you should choose an easy to train dog breed.
