Dog Pros and Cons

There are pros and cons to everything out there, and pets are no exception.

For every breed of k9, there are pros about the particular breed, but cons that might be good to know whether it’s about your current dog, or a breed of dog you’re interested in purchasing one day.

General Cons for Different Breeds

  • Tends to Be Nervous or Nippy

  • Fur Mats Up Without Daily Attention

Every item above can be mixed and matched one way or another, for just about every breed out there.

Every breed has its own set of strengths and weaknesses that should be assessed before deciding to purchase a dog.

A dog that is a good fit for one person or family, might not be for a different person or family living under different circumstances.

Proper nutrition is an essential component of canine health.
