Is it truly a dog-eat-dog world? Not according to these breeds.
Some dog breeds are known for their propensity to be friendly with other pups, and, as it turns out, this is a trait our readers are quite interested in when it comes to choosing a dog of their own. It makes sense — if you want multiple dogs in your home (and we can’t blame you if you do!), of course, you’d want them to get along.
Attention canine lovers, the most popular dog breeds are here.
The American Kennel Club released their list of top 10 most popular dog breeds of 2014, with labrador retrievers jumping to the top spot. Labs took over the most popular dog spot from poodles from 2013.
But labs aren't the only breed of pooch's who've wagged their way into America's hearts.
NEW YORK (AP) -- America's fondness for Labrador retrievers is still setting records, but bulldogs are breaking new ground.
Labs reigned as the nation's top dog last year for the 24th year after breaking poodles' decades-old record in 2013, according to American Kennel Club rankings set to be released Thursday. But bulldogs have hit a new high -- No.
It's unfortunate for homeowners who love Rottweilers, pit bull terriers, Doberman pinschers and other so-called risky breeds, but it is reasonable for insurers to consider dog breeds in calculating home insurance rates.
State Rep. Brenda Kupchick of Fairfield has proposed a bill that would prohibit using a dog's breed as an underwriting factor for homeowner policies.
Many dog lovers believe there’s no such thing as a bad dog, just bad training. And while we don’t disagree that a good owner along with proper training and socialization can make a world of difference, we have to admit that some dog breeds are best suited to experienced owners.
As the weather gets colder, one creative way to warm up is to snuggle with a cuddly canine. So, next time there’s a chill in the air, build a fire, grab a blanket and get cozy with one of these affectionate breeds!
Of course, it’s important to keep in mind that dogs are individuals and not all Bichons and Great Danes will want to snuggle with you.
BATAVIA — There’s always hope for a naughty, aggressive or scared pooch, Tori Ganino says.
You just have to understand it.
“It’s always been a dream of mine to be a trainer,” she said at her newly opened business on Harvester Avenue. “I love psychology and to think about ‘how can we work around this?’ Everything I suggest, every technique or behavior modification I use, I know it works.”
Ganino and her husband Rich used to operate out of their home in Elba.
