If you have decided on a particular type of dog breed for yourself or your family, you should do a bit of research to find out more about it. One of the first considerations is its temperament. Some dog breeds are more suited to a specific job than others. While some can be very affectionate and loving, there are other dog breeds that are better suited to working dogs. For example, the British Bulldog is more suited to guarding or working, whereas the Greyhound and Frenchie Bulldog are better suited to companion or sporting dogs.
Aside from their physical traits, you should also consider the nurturing qualities of the different types of dogs. The British Bulldog has a headstrong personality and requires a confident owner who can take on the job. The American Bulldogs are known to be affectionate and friendly, but they are not naggers. On the other hand, the Australian Shepherds have an intense loyalty to their owners that cannot be broken. If you want an extremely assertive dog, the Beagle is the ideal choice.
The Australian Cocker Spaniel is one of the most popular companion dogs in the United States. These are intelligent, playful, and hard working dogs. They are known to be good with children, although they can also be overly demanding when it comes to attention from the owner. Some have said that these types of dogs are burrowing animals, although this is debatable.
The Greyhounds are another well-known breed of dogs that earn their living as hunters. They can be used for many things from hunting to watching people hunt burrowing animals. Some people use the Greyhounds for live trap searching, since they can detect the presence of an injured animal and bring it to the vet. These bull breeds can be used to help guide blindfolded people around traps or into tight spaces.
The Australian Shepherds make a very loyal and devoted companion dog. In fact, there are even some Australian Shepherds that were once used in the army, as service dogs. They are extremely intelligent, with a highly structured social structure.
One of the oldest known dog breeds is the Terrier. The English and British Terrier was developed from the Irish Water Hound and the Hungarian Horntail. The English Terrier is often compared to the Doberman Pinscher because both derive from the same breed, which was originally a sporting dog. The physical characteristics of these terrier dogs are medium sized with long, pointed ears and a short, cropped tail. The coats are short and course, and they do need a daily walk. Their intelligence is moderate, and they are very protective of the family.
The other four terrier breeds in this group of dogs are the Anatolian Shepherd, the Alaskan Malamute, the American Bandog Mastiff, and the Anatolian Shepherd mix. All of these dogs are medium sized and have medium or long hair. The Alaskan Malamute is an excellent choice for those who live in colder climates, because of its sturdy and powerful frame. The American Bandog Mastiff is excellent with children, but it is a little on the heavy side. The Anatolian Shepherd has good endurance, stamina, and strong working abilities, although the coat can get a bit matted.
The final four dogs in the group of bull terrier dogs are the Irish Wolfhound, the Bullmastiff, the Glasgow Retriever, and the Orpington Terrier. All of these are medium sized, confident animals that work well with humans. They are affectionate, friendly, playful, and work wonderfully as companion animals or hunt burrowing animals.
