Adopting a pet should be a lifelong commitment. A great bond must be established to guarantee the success of the relationship!

Obviously, we all fall for certain types of dogs. Small, huge, cute, a friendly muzzle ... But you have to go beyond the first reflex and think about what is expected of a dog.

Scientists have noticed that some dog breeds have higher intellectual abilities than others and are more likely to obey and understand directions more easily.
