I work full time, but I want a dog…

desk-puppyWorking full time is an evil necessity if one wants to eat and wear clothes, but what if you want a dog for your family?  If you want to share your life with a dog, you will need to make some sacrifices, like going out for a beer or dinner with friends after a long hard day.  Your pet is at home waiting and because dogs are social pack animals, they need attention from their human caretakers.  Many dog breeds do not do well penned or crated all day – alone in a house or room without “their people” – and many of them need more social time and exercise than others.  There are a few breeds that do better than others in those situations.  Give some thought to your breed and choose one that may be more suited to hanging out, walking around the house and sleeping rather than looking for stimulation and get into trouble.

Here are the best breeds for full time workers:
Basset Hound
Chihuahua
French Bulldog
Greyhound
Maltese
Shar Pei
Whippet
