Review on DogBreeds: Which One Is Better?

You must have all heard the saying - You can choose you friends but you can't choose your family, except of course, your family dog.

But with so many dog breeds available it becomes a tedious task to choose the best dog breed which will be best for us. Choosing the right dog breed for your house has to be taken utmost care. There are some point which have to be considered in choosing the right dog breed for your house.

The size of your dog - small or big. Your living space definitely will help you plan that. If you are living in an apartment and you have a big dog, life will not be easy for both.

Do you have time to exercise your dog? Small dogs run around the house and will complete their exercise routine themselves but big dogs have to be taken out for a long walk and hard run otherwise their unused energy will result in destructive behavior.

Do you have children in the house? Avoid dog breeds that are aggressive and short tempered if you have small children.

Do you need a watch dog or a guard dog? Would you like to have a dog breed which is intelligent and easy to train?

There are many factors which have to be considered while choosing the best dog for you house. Check out for more information.

Dogs are awesome creatures! Maybe we can't say that one breed is better than another. Some dogs will do certain tasks better than others, each have different qualities. I can give opinion about a shar pei dog because my sister has got one and the dog is excellent. Very loyal, protective and friendly to the family but he dislikes other humans and dogs and hates cats!! These kind of dogs demands owners with pulse or they will turn to be the leader! They can have eye problems and skin problems demanding special food and medication often.My sister's dog has too much strenght for me! I would go for a smaller dog! She has a kid. The dog has been around since my nephew was 3 and has been always peaceful with the child even if he jumps on me when I visit! It seems as if the dog has always been aware that the child was fragile, so never had that kind of behaviour.If you would like to meet Davis go:

I firmly believe that much of what we attribute to 'breed' is more about training. I have been around properly trained 'dangerous breeds all my life including my late uncle's pure blood timber wolf and never found them to be dangerous or unruly in any manner. I have also been around untrained so called 'safe' breeds and they are just as dangerous as any breed stereotyped as dangerous.

Yes there are legitimate concerns when choosing a breed such as size or local ordinances which would make a breed illegal but in general it is the owner who is responsible for a dog's behavior. Bad owner equals bad dog.

I agree with Cheryl. However dog breeds have different temperaments and characters. Some breeds like pitbuls, rottweilers and such need a strong leader. If you make mistakes in training a chiwaha this is not as dangerous as when you do so with a pitbul

Actually I have found Chihuahuas to bite much quicker and more tenaciously than pitbulls. I still believe that much of what we take as temperament comes down to the owners rather than the breed. When you look at pitbulls and look at who tends to own that breed you quickly see that they are favored by 'macho' type guys who tend to reinforce their personality in the dog. They train the dogs to live up to the stereotype.

Every pitbull that I have been around who has a responsible owner has been loving affectionate pets. Dogs are pack animals and like any pack animal they follow the pack heirarchy. Any dog no matter how big or small needs to be taught their place in the 'pack', which should always be lower on the rung than the human members of that 'pack'.

Owners also need to remember that dogs can and will react to changes within the pack (Such as a new baby) and be on guard for aggressive behavior which again is a response to the change in pack structure.

I do not know the specific temperament of Chihuahuas. what i meant to say is that if training goes wrong and the dog gets mean it is more dangerous if the dog is big and strong. And some breeds except you as a leader more easy than others. There is a diference between male and female dogs too. And i know very sweet pitbuls as well

People just fear big dogs more. If you look at the dogs known for being dangerous, they are all larger breeds even though smaller breeds such as chichuahuas are more apt to bite and be aggressive. Because people fear larger breeds they are the ones that get the reputation of being 'dangerous' even when they are not through proper training.

10 lb dog or 100 lb dog I would worry more about the biter not just because of size. There is disease to worry about such as rabies and having seen a few dog bites in my day the bites of smaller dogs (Smaller sharper teeth and much more energetic in in trying to tear flesh) have often resulted in more damage than a bite from a larger dog.

I read that the most agressive dog is...Dachshund or Teckel! People collected different data on that study including attacks on the owners. I don't recall where I read this.:(

I love all of them...
Some just more than others
I have several now and have had many prior to these
All were unwanted and unloved until there came to us.
Ours range in size from 18# up to 90#
I think the 18#er would give the worse bite.
He is very quick and likes things his way... a true terrier.

Unlike my 90#er.... Nothing but love from that big mommas boy

Gotta love them critters
