Guard Dogs

Many people feel more protected if they have a guard dog on duty at all times. Some dogs are bred for this purpose, so choose large, protective breeds such as Rottweilers or Doberman pinschers. You can also look for German shepherd puppies for sale in South Florida. If you get a guard dog as a puppy, you give him or her time to bond with your family so you don’t have to worry about aggressive tendencies around your kids but can feel confident your dog with be protective when necessary.

Family Companions

If you’re looking for a snuggle buddy, you don’t need a high-energy breed. If you want a laid-back breed, choose a great Dane. If you like small dogs, a dachshund or chihuahua might be a good fit. Try to choose a dog that is bred to be calm but remember that all pets need exercise, so even if you choose a laid-back breed, your new family member won’t be content to snuggle all the time.

Exercise Buddies

If you want a dog to serve as an accountability partner for exercising, choose a breed with a lot of energy. Border collies and Siberian huskies may great hiking companions and you’ll be incentivized to exercise to get their energy out.

Adopting a dog is a big decision and shouldn’t be made lightly. If you are considering bringing a four-legged companion into your family, make sure you choose the right type of dog by identifying the reason you want a new pet.

Did you know that even animals are affected by the scorching heat?

As for our pet Oreo, I let him wade in a makeshift bathtub using a laundry basin. 😀

Accessories for dogs

There are so many cute accessories from bark collars we wish we could provide for our pet Oreo, but they are just too expensive. We tried putting a shirt on him but he’s not comfortable with it so I guess he’s cool without accessories. More than anything else, our pet loves to go for walks (to do his business) and have his tummy rub time.
