Dog Breeds

There are over 340 dog breeds on the planet according to the World Canine Organization. Yes, 340! From tiny dog breeds like the Chihuahua and Dachshund to massive dog breeds like the Great Dane and Newfoundland, dogs are everywhere.

Our furry friends may differ in size, temperament or looks but all breeds have the same unique way of making us love them, whether they are a pure bred pedigree breed or a scruffy mongrel. Man’s best friend can come in many forms, all of them offering something different.

Dogs have been bred for many, many years, resulting in a plethora of dog breeds to choose from. It’s easy to see what a dog looks like, but how do you know all the other key things about your chosen dog breed like their personality, what environment they like and what their history is?
