Poodles are known for hunting in the water and are very capable. AKC divides VIPs into three types: standard type, mini type, and toy type according to their size.

People who want to raise a poodle need to consider the following two points: 1. The poodle often barks; 2. It requires a lot of time from the owner to maintain and trim the hair. The problem of barking requires the owner to spend energy to train and correct. In general, it can be regarded as a dog that needs careful tame and care.

But Poodles do not shed hair, which is good news for friends who are allergic to dog hair and also like dogs. And poodles can adapt to city apartment life, of course, it would be better if there is a small yard.


German Shepherd dog
Body type: large
Lifespan: 10-13 years
Height: male 60-65cm, female55-60cm
Weight: male 30-40kg, female 22-32kg
Personality characteristics: alert, confident, loyal, smart, curious, and highly obedient

The German Shepherd is tall, strong and muscular. It looks so handsome.

In addition to being handsome, he also has a strong working ability and a high degree of obedience. Therefore, the German Shepherd can be used as a military dog, police dog, search and rescue dog, guide dog, shepherd dog, and watch dog, and can be competent for various identities and various positions.

The German Shepherd needs a lot of activity. If you can guarantee the daily exercise, you can also keep it in the apartment, but it is best to have a large yard. In addition, because the German Shepherd has a thick double coat, the hair loss is very serious. The advantage is that you don’t need to spend time trimming the hair.


Golden Retriever
Body size: medium to large
Lifespan: 10-12 years
Height: male 56-61cm female 51-56cm
Weight: male 27-36kg female 25-32kg
Personality characteristics: self-confident, friendly, smart, lively

The Golden Retriever can learn any instructions and be friendly to children, will not bark for no reason, and can get along with other small animals in harmony. All of the above are the reasons why Golden Retriever has become a popular dog.

However, the golden retriever has a lively personality and was very naughty when he was a child. As the demolition king, he needs the owner to spend time and energy to adjust slowly.

Another thing to note is that golden hair shed is quite serious, and thick long hair also needs regular deep cleaning.


Doberman Pinscher
Body type: large
Lifespan: 10-12 years
Height: boys 66-71cm girls 61-66cm
Weight: 40-45kg for boys and 32-35kg for girls
Personality characteristics: alert, energetic, brave and fearless, clever, obedient

Doberman Pinscher is native to Germany and is often used as a military dog and police dog. After professional training, it can become a search dog, hunting dog and shepherd dog. The character is bold, sensitive, determined and decisive, and easy to bite. If you live in the city, you need a lot of hard work from the owner to suppress its potential aggression, and let the dog fully exercise to maintain the body and consume energy.

Another point to note is that the Doberman may be unfriendly to children. If there are children in the family, you must pay attention to safety and slowly let the dog get along with the children.


Shetland Sheepdog
Body type: small
Lifespan: 12-14 years
Height: 33-41 cm
Weight: 6-12 kg
Personality characteristics: affectionate, lively, friendly, smart, lively, quick response

So far this article is written, the first small dog has finally appeared! Shetland Sheepdog is a dog that is very suitable for keeping in city apartments. As long as you have a daily walk and a moderate amount of activity, you can live happily without a yard. You can get along well with children and other pets.

But Shetland Sheepdog also has a big problem, that is, the problem of barking. Dogs who are sensitive by nature will be particularly prone to barking, which requires considerable patience from the owner.


Labrador Retriever
Body type: large
Lifespan: 10-12 years
Height: male 56-61cm and female 53-58cm
Weight: male 27-34 kg female 25-32 kg
Personality characteristics: affectionate, alert, cheerful, energetic, friendly, loyal, and responsive

From 2015 to the present, Labrador Retriever has been the number one “population” variety every year. In my mind, Labrador has no shortcomings. I am selfish in saying this, because my dog is Labrador! It is super friendly to children. My child scratches the dog many times, but my Labrador always has a gentle face and never loses his temper.

And Labrador never barked, and all orders obeyed obediently. When it was young, it was too lively, but when it grew up, it became more stable. To talk about the disadvantages, it may be that it sheds hair and that it is very greedy for food.


Body type: small
Lifespan: 13-16 years
Height: male 20-28cm female 20-28cm
Weight: male 4-5 kg female 3-4 kg
Personality characteristics: alert, energetic, friendly, bold, smart

The Papillon got its name because of the long hair on its ears that stand upright, like a dancing butterfly. It is rare to see anyone raising a butterfly dog. I think it may be that dogs are too possessive. If there are other pets in the house, it will be more troublesome.

In addition, it is very sensitive to very small sounds and barking easily, so it is not suitable for keeping in urban apartments. If you want to raise, you need the owner to spend time in training.


Body type: large to giant
Lifespan: 8-11 years
Height: 61-69cm for boys 56-63cm for girls
Weight: boys 43-59 kg girls 38-52 kg
Character characteristics: alert, brave, fearless, independent, loyal

Rottweiler was previously used as a breed of dog to guard the herd, and now it is often used as a police dog. I think Rottweiler is looking fierce, but he is actually a very cute character! He barely barks, has the sense of stability that a big dog is not angry and prestigious, and has a super high degree of obedience to the owner. Basically, the dog will follow where the owner is. It is a very emotional dog.

Rottweiler needs a lot of exercise, walking and running every day are all necessary, and can be raised in the apartment, but the owner must ensure its exercises. It is also necessary to socialize with other dogs frequently.


Australian Cattle Dog
Body type: large to giant
Lifespan: 12-15 years
Height: male 43-51cm,female 43-48cm
Weight: 13-28 kg
Character characteristics: combative, alert, high energy, loyal, protective, responsive

The Australian Cattle Dog is abbreviated as the Australian Cattle. Here I want to say that it is completely different from the Australian Shepherd. Originated in Australia, strong and strong. With well-proportioned muscles, it is an ideal working dog.

Suitable as a working dog is not so suitable as a pet dog, because it is very vigilant. They are extremely aggressive towards strangers or small animals who infringe on their own territory, coupled with their strong bite force. This kind of dog is not suitable for keeping in the city.
