How to Find the Best Dog for You?

Let’s assume you’re trying to find the love of your life or even date a cougar. What’s the easiest way to attract the lady of your dreams? Some say it’s looks, others think it’s charisma. However, many women claim to be attracted to men with dogs. Why not get one yourself? But be careful when choosing your doggy companion as the type of dog you adopt can greatly influence the quality of time you will spend together. Here are some factors to take into account when looking for the perfect pooch.

How Big Is It?

Most people have a preference when it comes to the size of dogs. Some like small breeds, while others prefer large ones. Ideally, you should think about your living circumstances before adopting a dog. Do you live in a small apartment? A house in the suburbs with a spacious backyard? Sometimes the easiest choice is to get a medium-sized dog, because it will be able to adjust to basically all kinds of spaces.

How Much Exercise is Necessary?

Dogs vary in their need for exercise. Some are couch potatoes that only need to be taken out a few times a day to do their ‘business’, while others need several hours of exercise on a daily basis to get rid of all their pent-up energy. Be cautious when picking a new dog, because you’ll need to set aside a certain amount of your time to take care of it, take it on walks, feed it, clean up after it and train it.

What about All the Fur?

Think about how much time you’re willing to spend on grooming your four-legged friend. Some have short coats that don’t require much maintenance. A good choice for those who don’t want to deal with the matted fur and heavy shedding. Many, however, wish to take in a doggy that is cuddly, furry and soft, but keep in mind that this means washing, drying and brushing your dog regularly. If you’re not doing it for aesthetic reasons, you’ll still have to groom your pet in order to keep the shedding to a minimum, or else your house will be covered in fur.

Which Breed?

Don’t impulse buy a dog. Do your research. Different breeds come with different personalities and characteristics. Choose one that fits your own lifestyle.
