01/7Want to adopt an energetic dog as a pet?
Dogs are loving, caring, protective and playful. They make us feel important and also help us learn how to love and care unconditionally. There are so many people around the world who adopt dogs and give them the best life at their homes with their families. It is even said that raising a baby around a dog is the best way to nurture him or her. Dogs can even help people with mental illnesses heal with time. So, if you’re looking for an energetic dog to adopt, there are a few breeds that we’d like to suggest considering the weather in India.
These are one of the most outstanding family dogs to have as they are vocal and can alert you when there’s a suspicious person around. They are very less likely to fall sick and they have high prey drive which means they are very energetic in general. They are likely to chase butterflies, rodents, and any small creature that moves. They also possess a strong sense of smell.
This one is quite a favourite one among small families as they are small in size, easy to train and they are amazing with kids. They are a complete package for an Indian family. Cocker Spaniels are very energetic and they have a high prey drive too. They need to exercise and burn off their energy on a daily basis.
Pariahs are native to the Indian subcontinent and they are the best dog breed to adopt in our hot tropical regions of India. They are very friendly, trainable and easy to maintain. India Pariah dogs are more loving than any other Indian pure breed and they love to guard their family too.
05/7American Pitbull Terrier
Pitbulls have been gaining quite some attention in north-central India. Most people might think that Pitbulls are aggressive, but that’s a misconception. Purebred Pitbulls are great with kids and other dogs and they have good health too. You need to give this dog breed some sort of socialization at their young age. They aren’t very easy to train but they are fun to be around once you get a hang of them.
Known for their agile and intelligent nature, most police forces across the world use German Shepherds as their canine companion. They have an innate ability to search, guide and chase, and the intelligence of this breed of highly energetic dogs remains unsurpassed. However, don’t be disheartened thinking German Shepherds do not adjust well to a family life, because they can be as gentle as a lamb and are great companions. Be prepared to groom these gentle giants and to match with their high energy level, their pet parents too should learn how to be physically active without getting tired easily.
This dog breed is very humble, calm and quiet. They are soft and gentle-natured which makes them perfect for families with kids. Golden Retrievers are usually great at being therapy dogs and sniffer dogs as they are easy to train. You will have to prepare yourself for a lot of grooming and long walks if you happen to adopt this breed. They adjust well in the Indian climate and you can keep them indoors during summers.
