You should be aware of the fact that dogs are made differently from each other and although some may have similar traits, they can be very different. The differences in temperament and character among dog types can be as varied as the differences in people. It\’s important to research what dog breed would be a great match to your lifestyle or to your home. That way you you won\’t run into trouble when you bring a dog home. There are numerous types of dog breeds to choose from. Some are purebred and some are cross-bred, like the Labradoodle which is a combination of a Poodle and a Labrador Retriever.

There are numerous questions to consider. One of the first questions to ask yourself is, what size dog can your home handle? Do you have a yard?Having a yard for a dog to run around in, or one large enough for good size dog pens, means you can get a larger breed. The next big consideration is if you have children. If so, you would want a dog whose breed is mild mannered and can get along well playing with youngsters. While some dog breeds can get along well with older children, some of them would not do well with the antics of small kids. A home with small youngsters needs a medium to large size dog that is gentle by nature and patient with kids. Often, small kids treat their dogs like a toy. They don\’t understand that a dog is not something they should include in their roughhousing as they or the dog could get hurt.

Does your home or business needs a watchdog so you\’d be looking at larger, more aggressive breeds. Or maybe you would rather have a dog that you can enter into dog show competitions. Perhaps you just want a pet that can be your best buddy to stay by your side as you watch television or go for a walk. Do you live alone? If so, you might want a pet that doesn\’t need as much attention and can be left alone while you go to work all day. One that would be content by playing with his toys or sleeping most of the day.
In deciding on the right dog breed for you, these questions are practical considerations.

Dogs can also be divided by two other major families, those that shed their coats or hair and those that in reality barely lose hair at all. Shedding is a huge complaint of dog owners. Dog hair is usually found on your clothing, furniture and lands on your guests\’ clothes when they sit down. Be aware that even some short hair breeds can shed. The shedding of hair can be categorized into those that barely shed, seasonal shedding only or constantly dropping hair.

Different breeds will also have fundamental differences in both height and weight. Dog breeds, in terms of their weight can be stated as smaller dogs weighing under 10 pounds, 11-25 pounds is the typical weight of medium dogs, large dogs may weigh 26-50 pounds and extra large dogs weigh 51 to 80 pounds. Mastiffs and St. Bernards which belong to those extremely large dog breeds can tip the scale at 100-180 pounds.  In choosing a breed, don\’t settle on the dog as it appears a pup. Remember to make your choice dependent on the size the dog will grow to as an adult. You shouldn\’t be shocked to see that your big dog has an appetite as big or bigger than yours. Taking home a dog like a Mastiff means having a costly dog food bill. You may also want to be sure you have sturdy furniture that can withstand any roughhousing accidents.

Take time to study the dog breed, size, disposition and grooming requirements before you make a choice. More grooming and care may be needed of some dog types like those used in dog shows, or those with longer hair. Some dog breeds are more prone to certain illnesses and diseases. So do your research before buying. Having correct information about the different dog breeds will help you make the right choice so that you and your dog can have a balanced and positive relationship.

Knit Dog Clothes Patterns

There are a lot of free dog sweater patterns on the web, but they’re not all created equal. Some patterns can be hard to customize for an unusually sized dog. Others are so frumpy, they won’t look good on your dog even if they are knitted out correctly. With free dog sweater patterns, you sometimes get what you pay for and you have to be aware in advance that your sweater may come out a little funny, especially if it’s the first time you’ve knit that pattern out for your dog.
