Adopting or buying a dog has its rules!

August 10, 2017

Do you want to adopt or buy a dog? Then know exactly what you should take into account!


Usually, when we are determined to have a new member in our family, we act with our hearts to see the sweetest faces and the most frenetic little faces. But it does not always work out.


Well, it's definitely not a product! A dog is an integral part of the family and will remain for a long time (between 10 and 16 years, depending on race or size and other factors).


Regardless of the breed, the dogs present diverse temperaments, being ACTIVE, PASSIVE or REACTIVE, which is born with it and does not change, being able to be identified at the 45 days of life next to the litter.



In general, the active dog is one that never stops, plays alone and does not give rest to anyone, for example, it is common to find this type of temperament in the Jack Russel Terrier. It does not stop! This is because this strong and agile dog is a great sniffer. So if you are not a sportsman, do not ride a bike at 6 am and put your little dog to exercise by running at his side; If you do not have a site or a large lot for it; If you do not have kids to play with and spend your physical and mental energy if you do not have the time then surely a Jack Russel or any dog ​​with an active temper would not be right for you! Remembering: Jack Russel is just one of the examples. Labrador Retriever, Weimaraner, Siberian Husky, Border Collie (that besides being super energetic is a dog of work) or dog without race defined also can be super active). It's not the race that sets the temper, okay! They are only examples. Any dog ​​can have an active, passive or reactive temperament, even within the same litter. And last thing: Do not have an active dog in the apartment!


 The passive dog is the easiest to identify: There are no reasons in the world to get you out of the way; A toy does not make your head, it's the lazy beast itself. This is an ideal dog for a quiet family, for apartment, for the elderly! English Bulldog, Bichon Frize, Bernese, Basset Hound, undefined and many others, are simply passionate about a good life, enjoying shade and fresh water.


And the reactive dog , ahhhh, this is the chameleon. Regardless of the style of the family, it suits well, be it more quiet or very active. He likes everything from a rainy day watching a movie on the walk with his family or running and playing on the beach all day. You do not have bad weather. He bumps everything!


Always pay attention to your lifestyle and take a look at Working Dogs, because they want to work!




To sum up: Dogs have 3 types of temperament (active, passive and reactive), and breed does not define temperament and that in the same litter there may be 3 types. It is identifiable through a test, applied by a professional, called the Volhard test.


And be happy, because a multiple species family is much cooler!
