Malamute_Pup2Came across this article about which breeds are “bad choices” for new pet owners the other day and thought I’d put in my 2¢.

I have been training dogs for over 40 years and my experience is not the same as the veterinarians who were interviewed for this survey. A breed of dog does not equate to temperament or whether or not they are “good choices.”

My gosh, imagine someone finding a mature Akita, German Shepherd or any of the other dogs listed in this article who have been thoroughly tested for safety and temperament but choose an untested other breed of dog listed as a “good choice,” only to find that the dog chosen turned out to be downright dangerous once brought into the home?
