How do you feel about training your ideal dog?

You should get a chihuahua!

Your ideal dog is tiny! On the plus side, it can fit easily in your handbag and doesn't need to eat much food. They're pretty neat dogs, but aren't the smartest and make a lot of yapping noises. But if you really want the smallest, cutest option - this is the dog for you!

You should get a pekinese!

This is a very dignified and special breed, originally bred by the Imperial Chinese court hundreds of years ago. They're amazing looking dogs, but they do tend to get hair absolutely everywhere. So if you want a dog that looks good but really isn't very practical - this is the dog for you!

You should get a Saint Bernard!

This is a gentle giant! A very well-behaved and polite dog, despite being a really big one. You'll need to take your Saint Bernard for lots of walks and give it lots of living space, but if you do that you'll have loyal friend for life. The only downside to having a Sant Bernard is they will drop hair all over your house... so be prepared for that!

You should get a doberman!

This is a very big, strong and loyal dog. Some say they're scary - and they can be. But if you treat your doberman with respect you'll have a loyal companion and a reliable guard dog. If you need one, obviously! Make sure you take it for lots of long walks because this is definitely an energetic breed!
