After owning two dogs for just over a year, I decided it was time to start looking for my third dog. My house at that time was small enough to not require a large yard, so I wanted a more indoor dog.
I spent several months researching different breeds before deciding on what would be my next puppy!
I originally planned on getting either a Labrador or Golden Retriever, but after doing some research I realized how much work both of those breeds could make for me as owners.
They are very intelligent dogs who need frequent training, which can become expensive if you don’t teach them correctly. Because I knew I wouldn’t be able to give each one proper attention and training, I limited myself to having an indoor dog.
After reading many reviews and talking with friends who had their own experiences with various breeds, I chose the English bulldog over any other breed.
Not only do they require little exercise, but they also learn quickly and easily trainable behaviors such as sit and stay, down, come, and walk-past-walk. These are great qualities for a beginner trainer!
This article will talk about why this is the wrong kind of dog for most people and some potential warning signs to look out for when thinking about adding an English bulldog pup to your pack.

Second, ask your friends about their preferences
Even if you already have a dog in mind, it is important to know whether that is the right fit for you. Before getting rid of any toys or materials, speak with your colleagues and see what works for them.
Some people may not like having a puppy so there’s no need to buy something they will probably never use! By looking into the things that work for them, you can save money by knowing which products are well-received.
And while some dogs enjoy playing fetch every day, this isn’t necessarily fun for everyone. You should always evaluate how much energy and entertainment each material gives your dog before investing.
There is also an educational element to throwing a stick or ball away; studying different styles of canine behavior and how puppies develop depends on exposure to new experiences.
Lastly, make sure to keep all materials out of reach of children as most safety precautions apply when working with anything sharp or potentially harmful.
Third, look up photos of different breeds online
While some people claim that certain dog types are more friendly than others, what most breeders will tell you is that all dogs come from the same puppy parents and are only influenced by genetics.
A lot of this has to do with why some breeds are considered friendlier than others. This is not to say that one breed is good or bad, but instead that there is no true difference in how socialized puppies of various breeds are.
Some may be raised with higher quality trainers who use legitimate training methods and understand basic psychology, but beyond that it’s just biology.
You get what you were born with and nothing can change that! So don’t let personality influence your choice of dog too much, because like I said before, they come from the same genes as yours.
Fourth, ask your family about their preferences
Even though there are many different types of dogs out there, some things seem to stay the same across all species. What people look for in a dog is a loyal companion that does not mind being loved and needed.
Most owners would say they want a friendly dog that obeys commands and learns tricks. Some even state that they do not like dogs with too much fur or who eat too much food!
However, beyond those descriptors, most people say they just want a well-trained puppy from a good home. A lot of them feel that a older dog may have growing puppies that need discipline, or a young adult dog could use more understanding.
When looking into adopting a new canine friend, it is important to be clear on what kind of dog you want before going through any formal introductions. You should also know what type of environment will work best for this breed.
Make sure to check out both potential homes at a similar length, to ensure a compatible match.
Fifth, look up photos of different breeds together
There are many theories as to why some dogs like to chase or play with other animals. Some believe it is due to instinct while others say it is because they enjoy looking at the same animal type.
Whatever the reason, it is totally normal for most breed types to want to play!
It is very important to give your dog enough time to show signs that he/she wants to play before you allow them to meet another dog. This could be anywhere from days to weeks depending on the size of the dog and how well trained it is.
Never force your dog to interact with any kind of dog if they appear reluctant or scared. A puppy that is not ready can become too stimulated or stressed out which may cause health problems later on.
Given their small body sizes, it is best to let large dogs catch their own breath when playing so that no one gets hurt.
Sixth, look up photos of different breeds together
There are many mixed breed dogs that people admire for their looks. A lot of these dogs have been shown in pictures with other dogs of the same or similar breed to show how well they mix with others.
Many people assume because two different looking dogs were seen hanging out outside together that it would be easy to bring them home as companions.
A lot of dog owners may not realize is that even though a mixed-breed puppy seems like it could potentially get along with any kind of dog, this isn’t always the case.
Seventh, look up videos of different breeds
Finding the right dog is very dependent upon your priorities as a owner. You want to make sure that you have done enough research and looked into all potential dogs before deciding on one over another.
Something important to consider is how well each breed will fit in with other animals and humans around it. Some may not like being touched or nuzzled so much, for example.
Also, some breeds are known to be more active or energetic than others which could either mesh or conflict with what type of person you want to adopt this puppy from. All these things play an integral part in choosing the best possible dog for you!
Another big thing to consider is if the owners of the breed are reliable. A breeder who uses birth certificates instead of vet records to verify their parentage is better than someone who lists themselves as parents on social media sites.
Eighth, look up videos of different breeds
Before you decide which breed is right for you, check out the various dog breeds available! Some are more friendly than others, some require more exercise, and some just seem like they would make a good companion.
Many dogs have become famous online, making it easy to see their fun antics and daily life posts. People love posting pictures and comments about them, giving your potential puppy a huge boost in popularity.
By watching these other puppies’ behavior and what people say about their owners, you will get an idea if this breed is a good fit for you. You can also find lots of tips and tricks by looking at all-around healthy pooches.????
Given that most bulldogs were bred for fighting, there are now non-fighting variants. Dogs with large heads, big jaws, and bold expressions are still popular show candidates, but not as championship contenders.
A less aggressive breed with similar looks is the pug. They are known for being very loyal and loving towards humans, so be sure that would be a quality that you want in a pet.
Overall health and fitness is important to know before bringing home any new canine friend. Make sure their parents are both healthy and could care for another offspring should something happen to either one of them.
English Bulldogs are no exception when it comes to requiring time and resources to keep happy and active.
Ninth, try to identify the different qualities that each breed has
There are two main types of dogs in the world- those who are herd animals and those who are territorial. Dogs are mostly motivated by instinct, but there is one exception – the intelligent dog.
With an intelligent dog, it is possible to teach them things such as commands or behaviors. This can be very helpful if you want to work with him or her professionally!
However, before looking into rehoming your puppy, we must talk about something else – socialization.
Socialization is important for many reasons. The most obvious being safety. If a dog does not know how to behave around other dogs, he may cause problems later. Also, some breeds need more time to learn how to interact with others, so do not rush this process.
Breeds such as Chihuahuas and Yorkshire Terriers are known for their separation anxiety and small size, which makes them difficult to place due to lack of homes.
Interaction with children is also very important since puppies grow up faster than adult dogs. A child might get frightened or hurt when the pup naps or playmates change. An experienced owner will understand this and prevent any harm from happening.
Lastly, socialization teaches a dog his place. Since some dogs are naturally dominant over others, they may feel threatened or insecure without proper training. This could lead to issues at home or even in the community.
