A Tired Dog is a Happy Dog

Pet Selector
Which Breed is for You?

Along with the sound advice of your veterinarian, the Pet Selector can help you find a breed of dog or cat that is the right fit for you and your home.

The Pet Selector is an interactive quiz that will ask you questions like: "How big or small would you like your dog to be?" "What level of exercise can you provide your dog?" "What protection ability would you like in a dog?"

Get started now by clicking on the Pet Selector on the side of this website.

No species on earth varies as much as the domestic dog. Dogs can weigh two pounds or two hundred pounds. We have developed different breeds of dogs to fit all kinds of different occupations. Some dogs such as retrievers are bred to return things to us. Herding breeds such as border collies have been bred to effectively move groups of other animals. Some breeds of dogs are selected for incredible intelligence while others are bred to be gentle companions, sitting quietly with us while we read or watch television.

No matter what kind of dog you have, they all need mental and physical stimulation. Our dogs often get in trouble when they have not had enough mental and physical activity…in other words, they get bored.

There are various types of activities that you can do together with your dog. Dogs that love to chase and retrieve balls are natural candidates for Flyball. This activity has dogs running and jumping over hurdles while carrying a small ball in a relay race against other dogs. Super active dogs like Border Collies and Australian Shepherds excel in this activity. These same dogs also do well in Agility activities. Dogs in these events run up ramps, jump over hurdles, run through cloth tunnels on a set course in order to finish with the best times.

Small dogs that love to dig can participate in Earthdog events. Dachshunds and Jack Russell Terriers have a great time digging and crawling through man made tunnels following a scent trail.  Herding dogs, like Border Collies and Queensland Heelers, can be taken to places where they can actually learn to herd and work a small herd of goats or sheep.

Retrievers and other hunting breeds do well in tracking and field trials. Huskies and Malamutes can participate in mushing where they pull dog sleds. Any kind of dog, whether purebred or mixed, can participate in obedience training. There are many levels of accomplishment and you and your dog can choose how far you wish to take their training.

No matter what kind of dog you have, there are activities in which the two of you can participate together. Fulfilling your dogs' need for activity is as important as affection and love. Ultimately, the time spent together will help you form a stronger bond with your pet. As an added bonus, you will also have a better behaved dog.
