Help from an excellent Shotton accident claim solicitors
Are you thinking of expanding your doggy family? Perhaps you already have small dogs, and you want to see what it’s like to live with a larger animal. Or you have something larger, and want to see what a lapdog might be like.
Alternatively you may already have a preferred breed, and your dog recently died. You could be looking for a puppy to replace them.
If you’re a first time dog owner, or are looking at a different breed for the first time, it’s worth finding out about their nature.
What’s Your Dog Like?
Do they need a lot of walks? Are they playful, and like to have endless games of fetch with you, and will “play” with all your furniture if you leave them alone, damaging it badly? These kind of dogs, like collie dogs or sheepdogs, need a lot of attention and may be best for someone who has a lot of time to spare. If you’re at work all day, you might find they get bored and start destroying things. They’re not happy to just lie down and sleep!
Other breeds of dogs, such as the Akita, look very attractive but can be problematic too. They are very loyal to humans, and aren’t likely to hurt you, your families or passers by, but may feel like they need to protect you from other animals. They can be very aggressive towards other dogs, chasing them and snapping at them while on walks. Because they’re also very strong, unless you’re strong too they can pull the lead right out of your hand if they’re intent on chasing an enemy.
Greyhounds need less walks than you might imagine. Twice a day, take them somewhere with lots of space where they can really run fast – but they only need about a 20 minute walk. The rest of the time they’re quite content to lie and have a rest. But be aware that they can find stairs difficult, as their long legs don’t seem built for the climb.
Smaller dogs, like a King Charles Spaniel, can be very friendly and have the advantage of being easy to transport and not needing a big house. You can even carry them around if you like, and the tiniest ones will hop up on your lap like a cat. But they may bark a lot and be quite noisy.
