Exercise needs are based on a dog's age, breed, size and overall health. Your dog should spend between 30 minutes to 120 minutes on an activity every day.
Do you have any previous dog owning experience?
Whether you’re an experienced pooch parent or a first timer, there are some breeds that are better suited than others to first time owners.
Who lives with you
Will the dog be walked or exercised by anyone under the age of 16?
Consider the size to weight ratio between the dog and owner when selecting your preferred pooch.
Do you have any other small animals?
It is possible to successfully combine multiple pets – but there are some breeds that can co-exist better than others.
Do you have any pet allergies?
If your nose runs, you sneeze or your eyes water after being near a dog, then you may have a pet allergy. Some breeds are less likely to cause symptoms than others, so help us select the right dog breed for you.
Do you work full-time?
The Dogs Trust does not recommend that a dog is left alone for longer than four hours at a time. Also, some dog breeds suffer from separation anxiety so selecting the right breed of dog is important if you are away from your pooch a lot.
How much would you be prepared to spend on your dog each month?
£30 to £50
The cost of insurance, food and unexpected vet bills for your dog can all add up, and the final amount can depend on which dog breed you select. It's important to plan a manageable budget to ensure your new best friend is well looked after.
