And Great Pyrenees, sheltie, and akita. Maybe if I searched a little wider, I’d find the actual answer, so I asked for the top 10 most loyal dog breeds. I found six lists with 22 different breeds of dogs total, with only the German shepherd, Brittany, and Kuvasz mentioned on almost every list. The German shepherd was the only breed to make every list,

Top 10 Working Dog Breeds

From security to rescue work to law enforcement, many of today’s professionals are aided by intelligent, loyal, and physically hardy dogs. A lot of these pups are working dog breeds that have been cultivated over time to perform specialized services where their large size is a benefit. Because of their size, these dogs may be less suitable for some households. Working dogs often become restless without regular work or other forms of mental and physical stimulation.

13 Top Toy Dog Breeds [Photos]

If you want to adopt a small dog, a good place to start is by researching toy dogs. Smaller dogs offer one important benefit, particularly for first time pack leaders: a 10 pound dog is much easier to control than a 100 pound dog. But don’t think that means a small dog will be easier to train — just that less is required of you physically. Dogs in this group are typically good lap warmers, were bred primarily for companionship, and have lower energy levels. However, these aren’t characteristics of every breed included in the toy dog category, so it’s

Contrary to popular belief, the most important factor is not the size or breed of the dog, but the dog’s energy and your ability to ensure that its needs are met.

Senior Citizen Canines: Dog Breeds For Mature Pack Leaders

People are always asking Cesar, “Which breed of dog is the right one for me?” His answer to the question is that breed doesn’t matter. Energy does. If you want to have a balanced relationship, start with a dog with an energy level the same or lower than yours. However, breed can make some difference if the potential owners have certain physical limitations.

Likewise, as humans age, they may experience changes that can limit whether they can have

Komondor

True Hungarian Komondors are very rare in the US. This working group breed is a descendent of early Tibetan dogs and was bred to protect flocks of sheep. The breed is known for their long white-corded coats, which has earned them the nickname “Mop Dog.” These coats have been said to protect Komondors from wolf bites when they were guarding their sheep from predators.
