The Best Dog For You Based on Your Lifestyle and Personality


If you love dogs and really want a fur baby of your own, you might be wondering what kind you should get. A whopping 193 dog breeds are currently recognized by the American Kennel Club, so you certainly have a wealth of options to choose from. Luckily, there’s an easy way to narrow those options down. 

Lauren McDevitt, co-founder of Good Dog, a website that helps match prospective owners to reputable shelters and breeders, says it’s super important to consider your lifestyle before bringing a pup home. For instance, if you exercise regularly, you’d probably enjoy a four-legged friend who loves going on your daily jog as much as you do. But if your favorite sport is napping, you’d probably benefit more from a pup who prefers a nice leisurely walk with lots of snuggles on the couch afterward.
