​ Humans have a very effective defense mechanism against heat. Our body stays cool by producing sweat in order to evaporate the heat away. Unfortunately, canines do not have sweat glands and therefore cannot deal with excessive heat as adequately. While they are able to evaporate the heat through their panting and glands in their […]

On the surface, canines seem like simple-minded creatures that do nothing more than, eat, sleep, scratch itself, and lick your face.However, dogs are actually far cleverer than their owners give them credit for. Of course, every breed is genetically different, and some species are inherently smarter than others. The following are the seven most intelligent […]

What Is The Best Dog Breed?

July 12, 2010

Well, there are over 150 registered dog breeds. Apart from this, there are those that are purebred and not registered; designer-dogs and so many sizes, colors and temperaments of pavement specials that it is not an easy question to answer. Euro Puppy has done a bit of research. We collected 20 comments and made an analysis at the end of it:

•“It depends on a person who likes the dog…but for me, any breed as long as it makes you feel comfortable and can make it as your best friend.”
•“The Border Collie is a truly great family dog and demonstrably is the most trainable for commands.”
•“The Japanese Akita, besides being fiercely loyal, is definitely the strongest animal to protect your children against stray bears.”
•“A wild mix of a shepherd dog with real wolf, or the coyote with a Keeshond! These wild mixes are truly the most perspicacious (keenly aware) due to their inherent advanced outdoor awareness (with a notably higher neurological brain stem) than any domesticated dog.”
•“If you’re truly an animal lover, it doesn’t matter about which breed is the best.”
•“They are ALL the best.”
•“I have a French bulldog and I love that breed! I am not sure that I will ever have any dog after I lose this one, but if I do, that will be a French bulldog as well.”
•“The best breed of dog for you depends on the distinctive characteristics that are important to you, the amount of time you can dedicate to the dog, the space available for the dog, your patience, type of food you lavish on the dog etc. Always think long-term when looking for a dog. A puppy that you have today will have different needs when it grows up. If you live in a apartment don’t choose a energetic dog like a lab retriever. These dogs need lots of exercise and a decent amount of space to move around.”
•“Golden Retrievers. They have everything Labradors have but are better looking with shinier fur!”
•“Labradors. They’re super friendly, playful, easy to train, and friendly with children. They’re also cute, and are a lot more fun than little Paris Hilton-ish purse dogs.”
•“Weiners! They’re Hilarious.”
•“How big is your house? How big is your family? Do you have children? These and many other questions need to be answered to pick the right dog breed. However, a dog’s personality is not only due to its breed, and mixes are usually better for many reasons. Go by a shelter and ask around. They will help you pick the best dog for your situation.”
