I’m thinking of getting a dog because I’m going to move soon and I need to decide which breed is right for me. I do have a cat so keep that in mind, but he isn’t gonna scratch because usually he just examines his toys. I would like a moderate sized dog breed but not too big. The main reason I would like the dog is for a cuddle companion but I still would love to play fetch. Also my mom said it would be nice if it looked big and burly so it would act like a guard dog. I’m also fine with having to exercise it everyday at the park because it’s walking distance.

Why don’t you look at dog breeds online? That way you could read all about them.

Just a note….your cat doesn’t scratch or bite his toys, they don’t move or chase him. A dog will move and might well chase him. So bare that in mind. 

Otherwise good luck!

Hi Colin

I don’t think anyone can really answer that question but you, you are the only one that knows what type of dog would be best for you. However here is a site you can go to and that might help you with your decision: DogBreed Selector:Animal Planet. 

Good luck with decision.
