How to Choose the Right Dog Breed
At Iowa Pointing Labs, we’re strong believers in making sure to match the right person with the right breed of dog. Being a producer of Orvis Endorsed Hunting Labs, we know about matching the right breed with the right person.
So what are some of the things you may need to know before choosing the right dog breed for you? Some things to consider are:
- Your daily activities or hobbies- Remember that dogs are lively and social creatures. Consider some of your hobbies, whether they are hunting, running, or other outdoor activities, when choosing the right breed for you. Also remember that dogs need a lot of outdoor exercise.
- Ask yourself why you want a dog- Many people decide they want a dog as if they aren’t making a very important decision. Always remember that buying a dog is buying a living a creature with needs and responsibilities of its own. Also, make sure what a specific breed needs in order to stay happy.
- Do your research- With any major purchase, you are likely going to consider a few alternatives. Remember to conduct sound research on the breed that you settle on to ensure that you’re making the correct choice. This can include talking to well-informed people, Internet research, and reading books on specific breeds. Once you have decided on the right breed for you, conduct research regarding the correct breeder and make your purchase.
