Hunting dogs can be divided into four main categories of hounds, terriers, cur type dogs, and gun dogs. Many combine skills of hunting, flushing, and retrieving.
Apartment-friendly dogs are the best pick for owners who do not have a spacious play area for their dog. The lower a dog's energy level, the more apt it may be for apartment-life.
Family-friendly dogs are breeds that interact well with children. These dogs remain good-natured even when subjected to a child's poking and grabbing.
Hypoallergenic dogs are intended to be more compatible with allergic owners. Smaller dogs that bark less are often indicators that a dog produces and disperses fewer allergens.
Higher-requirement dogs tend to need more frequent play time in larger areas, while minimal-need dogs can be left alone more often.
Shedding is the natural process which helps a dog stay clean. Lightly-shedding dogs are often associated with fewer allergic reactions when properly groomed.
