There are many different types of dogs, and one that is often overlooked is the family dog. Although smaller than a larger breed, the family dog can be just as loyal and energetic. They can also be just as cute and fun. If you are planning a new pet and have not yet made up your mind, maybe you should consider the Miniature Pinscher. These small and adorable dogs make perfect family pets and very good companions for children.
Although they might not like it, miniature pinschers tend to be quite apathetic towards small children tugging on their ears or pulling their tails. This makes them one of the very best family dogs you could get, but they are also one of the cutest dog breeds around. Their small size combined with their sweet disposition make them very lovable. Miniature pinschers are some of the most laid back dogs around.
The Australian Shepherds are some of the best family dogs out there. This is because they are very active and loyal. These dogs are also very intelligent and can learn new things quickly. Many people have a hard time keeping these dogs from doing everything in the house including running through things. Even though this breed tends to be high strung and quite vocal, they have an amazing energy level and love to play.
If you are worried about the behavior of your Poodle, you might not be giving them enough credit. The Poodle responds well to training. If you train them correctly and spend enough time with them, they will be very obedient. However, there are some breeds that have even lower obedience levels and they need to be trained much more intensely. These are the ones you want to avoid as you don’t want to spend any time with your Poodle in a negative manner.
The American Bulldog is another great choice for a family dog. They tend to be very affectionate, happy and energetic and make great pets. However, you do need to watch for their shedding. The American Bulldog tends to shed a lot due to their hyperactive nature and because they have such a short coat they can easily get matted down.
If you are working on increasing the energy level of your dog, you should consider the Toy and Miniature Poodle. The Toy Poodle has an extremely high energy level and loves to be around a lot of people and other animals. However, they tend to shed a lot and have thin hair.
You will probably find puppies in all the top five of these lists. Just be aware that puppies have different levels of temperament and personality traits. For example, if your puppy is aggressive, you should avoid getting one unless you are willing to crate train. You will need to get your dog over this behavior problem quickly in order to keep it from causing problems in the home and possibly even putting your family at risk.
Finally, you will probably find that energetic or slightly active puppies tend to have short lifespans. Look for puppies that have a good life expectancy and a low barking level. The less barking level the better.
The average life expectancy for Poodles is eight to ten years. They can live up to fifteen years if they are well-cared for and have a decent diet. Most Poodles live for seven to eight years. This means that you can expect two to three years of continual happiness as a Poodle. However, you will also have to consider the fact that they shed a lot and if they are not brushed regularly, they can lead to excessive weight gain.
Grooming is extremely important to the Poodle. Their coats must be kept very clean and their nails need to be trimmed regularly. If the Poodle is not brushed and groomed, they can easily become matted and tangled. They can also lose their body weight due to shedding. Therefore, if you choose the Toy and Miniature Poodle, be sure you purchase a breed that has high energy levels and a high grooming requirement.
You will also want to consider the Toy and Miniature Poodle grooming needs. The Miniature Poodle responds well to nail trimming and regular grooming. In general, the Toy Poodle responds well to being handled in a soft voice. They will become calm if handled gently but will still bark loudly when excited or fearful. Because of their high energy level, they need a regular amount of exercise each day and a commitment to your training if you want to ensure your Toy Poodle’s life expectancy and good health.
