Beginning Dog Ownership: Understanding Your Lifestyle

Understand how your lifestyle will affect your new dog as a first-time owner. You must pick a breed that matches your lifestyle since dogs need attention, exercise, and care.

Think about your typical household and routine. Living in an apartment or house with a yard? Do you have pets or kids? Do you work long or flexible hours?

Apartment dwellers may like Chihuahuas, Pugs, or French Bulldogs. Low-energy breeds don't need much area to run. Small breeds may bark, making them unsuitable for apartment life.

A yard may suit medium to big breeds like Golden Retrievers, Labrador Retrievers, or Boxers. More energetic breeds need more area to run and play.

Choose a breed that's nice with kids and other pets if you have them. Beagles, Collies, and Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are amiable and social.

Consider a breed that's autonomous and doesn't need constant attention if you work long hours. Greyhounds, Basenjis, and Shar Peis are independent and low-maintenance.
