You are ready to get your first beginner dog and want to know which dogs are suitable for beginners? If you have never owned a four-legged friend as a pet before, you should avoid demanding dog breeds. On this page we present a list of 13 dog breeds for beginners, which are particularly suitable for people without dog experience.
Welcome to the wonderful world of dogs! Isn’t it exciting to become a dog owner for the first time? But let’s face it, you can also be a bit overwhelmed.
There are so many different dog breeds out there and especially for beginners it can be really hard to choose a suitable beginner dog.
As puppies, all dogs are cute, but before you take the next best puppy home with you, especially as a beginner, you should pay attention to a few things first.
Which dog suits me?
Are you an active or rather calm person? You have to be sure that you can offer your new four-legged friend enough movement and exercise.
If you are looking for a lazy lap dog, then energetic dog breeds such as the Australian Shepherd are not the right dogs for you.
Do you also have enough time to raise a puppy? Taking care of a puppy requires a lot of work and patience. Puppies are not house-trained, have to be trained and frequent visits to the vet are unavoidable.
If this sounds like too much work for you, then you should consider giving a new home to an adult dog from the shelter.
In addition, the staff at a good shelter can advise you and help you find the right dog for a beginner.
Think about whether you can look after a four-legged friend who needs a lot of care. All dogs have their basic needs, but some need extra care. We have put together 13 beginner dogs for you to help you make your choice.
