If you are thinking about adding a new dog or puppy to your family, it is always a good idea to do some research on the breed of dog you are considering.

When you decide to become a dog owner, you are making a lifelong commitment to the puppy you select, so the more you understand about the breed the better. If you have young children, you want to be sure to pick a dog that is good with kids, is sociable and adaptable to situations.

While this might not always be the case, you might find that introducing a puppy to your home is easier than introducing an older dog that could be somewhat set in their ways.

Puppies can be trained and easily recognize their human family members, where older dogs may have a harder time adjusting to a new home environment.

Selecting a puppy or dog with an easygoing nature and a calm temperament is great for people who have calm living environments. People who have active living environments might be better served to select a high-energy puppy or dog that thrives in this type of household.
