Bringing a dog into your home can be the start of a truly magical adventure for you and your family! But with so many adorable pups to choose from, it’s not easy knowing which breed will suit your household the best. That’s why, at The Insurance Emporium, we’ve put together this handy guide of different breeds you might want to consider!
Hyper Hounds – Border Collie
Looking for an energetic pooch that’ll tire the kids out? A Border Collie could be a great addition to the family! Still used to this day to herd sheep, the breed is highly energetic and easy to train. Keep in mind, they’ve got a lot of energy, so if you can handle the sheer amount of exercise and attention they need, they could be a fantastic addition to your home!
Clever Canines – German Shepherd
Originally bred as working dogs, German Shepherds are one of the most intelligent breeds of dog. Because of this, they’re easy to train, and incredibly loyal to their owners and handlers! With this drive comes a lot of energy, though, and the breed doesn’t take well to being left alone. If you can deal with a higher maintenance pet, a German Shepherd could make an excellent canine companion.
Family Friendly – Beagle
Beagles aren’t just adorable little bundles of joy, they’re also one of the best family-friendly dog breeds available. They’re not the biggest dogs, which can make them a little easier to handle in a family environment. Just don’t expect them to be great guard dogs! They’re not the easiest dogs to train either, but they make up for it in playfulness, friendliness and affection.
Devoted Dogs – Labrador Retriever
You won’t find many more loyal breeds than a Labrador Retriever! These pooches can be some of the friendliest fellows you’ll come across, affectionate with people, and they usually get on well with other dogs, too. There’s a reason our friends over at Canine Partners often use these pups to transform the lives of people in need.
Sofa Surfer – Bulldog
The cutest little snore-machines you’ve ever seen! If you want a puppy that’s low energy and more content sleeping on the sofa than running riot chasing a tennis ball, a Bulldog could be the perfect pup for your home! They’re known for their friendliness and loving nature as well as their laziness, so if you’re looking for a pooch partner to join your sofa surfing, this could be the dog for you!
