Choosing a dog breed is no easy task. You have to take into account how you live, where you live and who you live with. Some breeds get along great with kids, while others are best suited to older companions. Some don’t cope well with long periods of separation, while others can be left alone most of the day without feeling neglected (or destroying your home). And while certain breeds need lots of wide-open spaces and crave the outdoors at all hours, others are more than happy to curl up beside you on the sofa — morning, noon and night.
Before you commit to life with a canine companion, especially if you work full-time away from your home, get familiar with these dog breeds that are perfectly happy indoors. Whatever your lifestyle, there’s something here for everyone.
