Which dog breed makes the best pet? – Part 1

The best dog breed to make the best pet depends much upon the type of pet the owner is wanting. There are large and small breed dogs. Many people choose a small breed for living inside the home while many choose larger dogs to live outside to guard the home. This does not always hold true but many times it is so. There are numerous breeds of dogs. Some parents seek a dog with a good track record with children such as Labs, St. Bernard’s, or Huskies for a great playmate and protection, or smaller breeds such as Beagles, Chihuahuas, or Pomeranian to better match your child’s size.

I have also been taught that a Husky can be the most loving and protective pet around. The dog did not even belong to me but I as a child took right up with Yogi. He loved me and I also did him. We had many fun hours of running and playing in my front yard. He also had no problem of warning strangers that I was not to be messed with. He was a great friend and protector and I was so sad the day my neighbor moved and took Yogi with him.

Chows have a bad name with children but I am here to tell you that as a small child a chow probably saved my life.
