In our last post, we introduced some of the challenges that come with dog adoption during the holidays. In an effort to mitigate some of these common problems that families face, we are kicking off our new blog series aimed at helping you choose the right dog for your family and lifestyle.
With 340 recognized dog breeds, there is no way that the average person could read through traits and characteristics for every single dog breed out there (and still have time for their day job!). So how can you make sure that you are choosing the absolute best fit for your family and your lifestyle without an exhaustive crash course on dog breeds?
Well, that's why we are here! To narrow your search a bit, we are going to break these 340 recognized dog breeds into seven overall categories. After taking a look at each of these categories, our hope is that you can narrow in on one or two categories that fit your family and lifestyle best. Once you have made your decision on the type of dog that will fit your family and lifestyle, our goal is to give you a much easier path to choosing the right breed for you!
