    I think elderly people should have a small dog because it would get them out of the house and force them to walk, even if for a little bit. Good graphic. We have two chihuahuas and, though one barks too much, they are lovable and we would be lost without them. They run like greyhounds.

  3. Our home was robbed within one month of putting our last dog down 2 years ago – after that, I hated going home from work and walking into an empty house (I am always home before my husband) – now that we have another dog (standard poodle), the fear is alot less than before! It makes a huge difference to me – now I can hardly wait to get home to the pooch!!! There is such a sense of security having a dog in the house rather than being alone – it makes it so I’m not alone – love that.

  4. Great list – We would never not have at least 1 dog in our home! We have rescued many over the years!

  5. We had Buster, a Yorkie, for 13 years. When he died, my husband and I decided that we would NOT get another dog. We are in oiur sixties and would like to start going away weekends, etc. without worrying about the dog. After six months, we realized, the house was way too quiet, way too lonely and we needed more “life” in the house. We adopted a rescue Yorkie (8 months old) and now we wonder why was it even a thought not to get another dog. They add so much love, so much affection, so much FUN…..and the list goes on. True, we don’t have the freedom we thought we wanted, but the advantages SOOOO outweigh that that it doesn’t even ‘copute.”

    I have been in love with dogs and cats all of my life. I was fortunate to have parents that allowed all of us to always have a dog in our young lives as children, and now I would be lost without having a dog in my life so much that since we had a horrible experience getting our first Labradooodle back in 2003 when most didn’t know what they were, we were forced into breeding them, the humane way for families that have allergy issues, and even though there is no guaranty that a labradoodle would be a fix for allergy sufferer, it has been proven with our experience that this type of dog has assisted many who suffer asthma as well as allergies.

    All dogs are very special, it is a blessing to have such a wide variety to choose, but it is well deserving for the public to know that the best place to get that certain breed is to make sure the breeder is available constantly for support.
    Chet is a most reliable source for humane,gentle,positive training techniques, such a refreshing way to teach our beloved friends how to behave.
    Teaching with loving obedience applies to human children as well as our furry kids..
    Thanks Chet for this chart..I will place on our web site.

    I especially love the fact that dogs aid people,children with recovery from illness..we have seen this as a proven fact.

    We have been married 58 years and hae had dogs for 54 of them. Mostly small ones. We now have Sparky 11,a Lhasa/ShiTzu mix and Lucy 6, a Lhasa/Poodle mix.
    They are friends with everyone in our apartment complex and love to visit residents who are wheel chair bound. When we return from a short trip the greeting we receive is worth wonderful.

  11. I have tried so many times to write here but never got through so I sort of am leery, but here I go.
    We adopted a year and a half old, who has been the love or our lives. He had been abused probably by a man as he was afraid of my husband for three months. They became such pals that I don’t think my husband would have come here to the assisted living facility had they not allowed dogs 25 lbs and under. He is part chihuahua and some kind of Terrier.Very smart but also very territorial. He barks like crazy when any one comes to the door.When people are inside he is fine. I Love Chet’s instructions but some cannot be followed by one in a power chair. I do the best I can and he has learned a lot. He lets all those here pet him, he is sort of a therapy dog. Please everyone who is looking for a dog, check the SPCA or any pound.

    I can’t believe dachshunds didn’t make the top 10 guard dog barkers!!! Are you kidding? Mine bark when the grass grows! If a stray leaf should enter our front yard, they have to tell me. Even the blind dog barks – usually more than the ones who can see! Drives me absolutely mad – but I know they’re keeping me safe and I wouldn’t part with any of them. They’re always there for me and the best investment I ever made! Plus, half of them are rescue dogs – they saved me as much as we saved them, we have that bond.

    I AM NOT A DOG PERSON. UNTIL DAISY our mut. She knows when I walk through the gate and has to be out there to greet me. I thought that with the kids being of the age that now they can care for a dog that now would be a good time to get them one. A friend told me about his friends dog having puppies and they are not the ones that you find on the clubs but they are cute. He was joking of course as I WAS afraid of dogs. ALL kinds no matter the size I was not comfortable around them. The day we went to see this PUPPY I was skepticale of was the pup would look like. The kids picked her out in an instant. No hesitation, a loner that did not hang with the rest of the pack. She arrived home weeks later and attached herself to me as I wanted to train her the basic rules, the kids cared less. I persued that with a puppy you have to have rules, And with that came the bond and now my best friend. Where I am Daisy is. Not by My choice at first but now with her endearing support. I have a friend and she has a friend.

    YOU DO HAVE A FRIEND AND CHERISH HER BECAUSE THEY HAVE A LIMITED TIME ON THIS EARTH AND NEED ALL THE LOVE THEY DESERVE. DOGS ARE NOT ONLY PETS, THEY BECOME OUR BEST FRIEND, COMPANION AND OUR SERVANT. BY THAT, I MEAN THEY ARE HERE TO LOVE US AND IF POSSIBLE DO ANYTHING WE DEMAND FROM THEM FOR THAT LOVE.
    SO MY FRIEND, TREAT HER AS A BEAUTIFUL GEM AND LOVE HER AS HARD AS YOU CAN AND THE BLESSING WILL COME FOR AS LONG AS SHE LIVES, GOD WILLING A VERY LONG TIME. LOVE MY ANIMALS’ LYNN’

    I always had GSDs. When I joined the Army, they eventually went all over the world with me and i picked up a GSD/Curly coat Retriever in Germany when i got married. We have had everything including a wonderful road-kill American Pit mix. When my last GSD died and I needed a new Service dog we got a wonderful guy from Slavacia who has half sibs in the area. Our shelter boy died at 13, and our stray had to be put down. We have just our guy in training and hope to get a shelter dog—I have always had more than one dog in the house and with just one it seems to be lonesome. My other Service dog got along gt=reat with the others but this guy has a high drive and needs to get trained by himself.

    All dogs are different no matter the breed.

    The poster is fantastic. Thanks for sharing!

    I had a Boxer that we got as a small pup. I got her for my wife because I was away all week out of the area and only came home on weekends. The boxer would sit by the back sliding door over looking the road up to our place. She would
    wait looking out the sliding glass door every Friday afternoon until I came up the road a mile away. Then she would get all excited when she saw my pickup comming on the road a mile away across a wide open field. She would never watch for me all week long, Only on Friday afternoon. She would
    never get excited about other cars comming and going on Friday, only mine.

    I’ve been having a Scnoodle for the past 7 years. As he’s getting older, decided that he would need a companion. I came across a Golden Retriever and thought of giving it a shot. In the beginning, I really suffered with him as he was shedding badly. He was also not potty trained so basically made the whole house his toilet. He is 5 months old now and guess what, I can’t live without both the boys now. They will wait at the window by the time I reach back home everyday and the greeting I get from them is priceless. They would jump on me, lick my face and jump on me. A real reason to go back home everyday!
