Finding the Best Dog Breed for Your Family

Consider Your Lifestyle  

Research breeds that match your lifestyle in terms of size, energy level, grooming needs, and temperament. 

Research Breed Traits

Choose a breed suitable for households with small kids, like a gentle Lab, or opt for a livelier dog for families with older kids.
