Dog Breeds

Dog Breeds – From small dogs breeds to large, from hairless to fluffy. Our list of dog breeds of the largest dog breed lists on the net. Whilst dogs differ greatly in appearance and size, they differ more in temperament and personality both within breeds, and across breeds.

Some breeds, especially herding breeds, are very trainable and love to be give tasks and goals. Breeds that are traditionally livestock guardian dogs are wilful and determined and will not respond well to certain training methods. Few dogs hate company, but hound dogs will pine without it. No amount of training will stop a sight hound from chasing a running prey animal such as a rabbit.

Some breeds are so fierce, their mere existence has been banned in some countries, others are known for being friendly and gentle in the face of any situation. Some breeds require daily, strenuous exercise; others will be fine with little or none.

Its important to match a dog breed to your residence, your lifestyle, and your personality. Don’t think because you had a pet dog as a child, a dog you later get as an adult will be anything like it, it’s very likely it won’t.
