A lot of people say, “My puppy doesn’t like it. I do not want to put them in a cage.”
Sure it may feel like a cage to them at first, but the point of crate them is to make the dog have a designated personal space. The crate can also help with other things like potty training your puppy by teaching it to hold in its bussiness. Just make sure to take away their food and water 3-4 hours before they go in the crate, and to also wake up early to take them out to go potty.
Because puppies need to learn to hold their potty I do not suggest getting a product called the puppy apartment. The puppy apartment is essentially a crate that has a pee pad next to your puppies bed but is still in their crate. It is crate that has a bed and potty in it.
I think it is a good idea for dogs with bladder problems, but not for puppies because they need to learn to hold it! Therefore if you give them a potty right next to the place they sleep they will never learn.
Also dogs do not like to potty in their bed or near it, that is why when they are in a confined crate (their bed) they will make more of an effort to hold it.
Professional trainers say to get a crate that is going to fit your dogs adult size, but then to get a divider that will suit their small puppy size.
Lastly I personally would not like my puppy to go pee or poo in their potty side and then to accidentally walk in it and go back to their bed side. That would end up in dirty laundry and more work.
Puppies may cry in their crate at first but that’s because they want to be with us. They are an animas that crave attention and companionship.
Eventually they will love the crate and you may even see them go in there during the day to sleep.
Letting your puppy sleep in your bed is not a good idea. If they are a small puppy or maybe even a large one you could accidentally hurt them. Also they may pee in your bed.
Don’t get upset if they poo or pee in the crate they are still learning and just puppies. Eventually they will learn “this is my bed, not my potty space.”
Always use positive reinforcement and try to give them a treat as much as you can when they go potty outside or on their wee wee pad.
I think everyone with a puppy should consider crate training their puppy. Ultimately this will help your puppy in life a lot more than you think it will. Thanks for reading!
Each bolded word below is a reason for why the great dane is a popular dog breed and each paragraph below goes into further detail on that reason. This post also shows the history of the great dane breed.
The Great Dane is a popular dog breed because they are gentle giants, they have many different fur color varieties, and they are adorable.
Although great danes are giant they are very friendly. That is why they are known as a “gentle giant” dog breed.
Great Danes are one of the few purebred dog breeds to have a variety of different coats. Greats Danes can have many different fur coats such as black and white spots, black, and a fawn color.
They Are Adorable
I mean just look at that face what is not adorable about it?
“Drawings of dogs who look like Great Danes have been found on Egyptian artifacts dating back to 3000 B.C. and in Babylonian temples that were built around 2000 B.C. There’s evidence that similar dogs originated in Tibet, with written reports of such dogs appearing in Chinese literature in 1121 B.C.
The breed is thought to have been taken into various parts of the world by the Assyrians, who traded their dogs to the Greeks and Romans. The Greeks and Romans then bred these dogs with other breeds. Ancestors of the English Mastiff were probably involved in the breed development, and some folks believe that the Irish Wolfhound or Irish Greyhound also may have played a role.
Great Danes originally were called Boar Hounds, because boars were what they were bred to hunt. Their ears were cropped to prevent boar tusks from tearing them. In the 16th century, the name of the breed was changed to “English Dogges.”
Late in the 1600s, however, many German nobles began keeping the largest and most handsome of their dogs in their homes, calling them Kammerhunde (Chamber Dogs). These dogs were pampered and wore gilded collars lined with velvet. Talk about a sweet life.
The name Great Dane arose in the 1700s, when a French naturalist traveled to Denmark and saw a version of the Boar Hound who was slimmer and more like a Greyhound in appearance. He called this dog Grand Danois, which eventually became Great Danish Dog, with the more massive examples of the breed called Danish Mastiffs. The name stuck, even though Denmark did not develop the breed.
Most breed historians give credit to German breeders for refining the breed to be the well-balanced, elegant dog we love today. In 1880, breeders and judges held a meeting in Berlin and agreed that since the dogs they were breeding were distinctly different from the English Mastiff, they would give it its own name — Deutsche Dogge (German Dog).
They founded the Deutscher Doggen-Klub of Germany, and many other European countries took up the name as well. The Italians and English-speaking countries didn’t accept this name, however. (Even today, the Italians call the breed Alano, meaning Mastiff; and in English-speaking countries, of course, they’re called Great Danes.)
Throughout the late 1800s, wealthy German breeders continued to refine the breed. They turned their attention to the dog’s temperament, because Great Danes had aggressive, ferocious temperaments due to the fact that they were originally bred to hunt wild boar, a particularly ferocious beast. These breeders tried to produce more gentle animals, and — luckily for us today — they succeeded.
We don’t know when the first Great Danes were brought to the U.S., or even where they came from, but the Great Dane Club of America was formed in 1889. It was the fourth breed club allowed to join the American Kennel Club.” – http://dogtime.com/dog-breeds/great-dane#/slide/1
Each bolded word below is a reason for why the Labradoodle is a popular breed and each paragraph below goes into further detail on that reason. This post also shows the history of the Labradoodle
The Labradoodle is a popular dog breed because it is hypoallergenic, easy to train, and just adorable. A Labradoodle is a cross between a poodle and labrador retriever.
If a member in your family has allergies a maltipoo is a dog that doesn’t shed. This designer dog breed doesn’t shed because the poodle parent is hypoallergenic. Labradoodles unlike most dogs don’t have fur. Labradoodles have hair which means that the hairs keep on growing and growing. If you go to an a allergist for hypoallergenic dog breeds they might recommend the labradoodle. Unfortunately no dog is 100% hypoallergenic because their dandruff will shed.
Easy to Train
Labradoodles are easy to train and very smart. Labradoodles get their intelligence from the poodle.
And They Are Just Adorable
“The Labradoodle was originally developed in Australia to be a hypoallergenic guide dog. In 1989, Wally Conron, who was in charge of the breeding program for the Royal Guide Dogs Association of Australia, conducted the first purposeful crossbreeding between a Standard Poodle and Labrador Retriever
This first cross of Conron’s produced a dog called Sultan, who not only had the hypoallergenic coat but also had the aptitude, intelligence, and personality to be an effective guide dog. Sultan went on to work with a woman in Hawaii and was a successful at his work. At that point, other breeders saw the merit of crossing these two breeds.
Like the Labrador Retriever parent, the Labradoodle quickly rose in popularity and has become one of the most sought-after “Doodle breeds.” These dogs are often produced by crossing a Labrador Retriever with a Poodle, but multigenerational breeding has begun in an attempt to produce a viable and recognizable breed.
Both the Australian Labradoodle Association and the International Australian Labradoodle Association are taking steps in this direction (there are no Labradoodle breed clubs in North America), and they hope to move this designer breed into registered breed status in the next few years. These groups have made great efforts to bring breeders together so that they’re working to achieve the same standards through multigenerational breeding.” –http://dogtime.com/dog-breeds/labradoodle

Each bolded word below is a reason for why a pug is a popular breed and each paragraph below goes into further detail on that reason. This post also shows the history of the pug breed.
Pugs have become a dog popular breed because they are low maintenance breed, they are a small dog breed, everyone loves a cute flat faced dog, and pugs are taking over Instagram which makes it hard to escape their cuteness.
Low – Maintenance
Pugs are a low maintenance breed. Just make sure that your frenchie’s wrinkles are dry and free moisture, in order to keep them clean. But every dog needs to bath and groomed a least every few months (depending on the breed.)
Pugs: a small dog breed
Pugs are a small dog breed, that is what makes the pug the perfect “hand bag” dog. Because of there size they are perfect for people who live in apartments or in the city.
Who doesn’t love a cute flat faced dog breed?
Everyone loves flat faced dog breeds such as, the pug, the english bulldog, the Boston terrier, and of course the Pug. Although many people love the flat faced breeds, a dog’s flat face can lead to respiratory (breathing) problems.
Pugs have taken over the “dog side” of Instagram.
They have really taken over Instagram with their cuteness.
Pugs, french bulldogs, and dachshunds are all over Instagram. Doug the Pug has over a million followers. Roxy the pug has over 17 thousand Instagram followers!
“Pugs originated in China, dating back to the Han dynasty (B.C. 206 to A.D. 200). Some historians believe they are related to the Tibetan Mastiff. They were prized by the Emperors of China and lived in luxurious accommodations, sometimes even being guarded by soldiers.
Pugs are one of three types of short-nosed dogs that are known to have been bred by the Chinese: the Lion dog, the Pekingese, and the Lo-sze, which was the ancient Pug. Some think that the famous “Foo Dogs” of China are representations of the ancient Pug. Evidence of Pug-like dogs has been found in ancient Tibet and Japan.
In the latter 1500s and early 1600s, China began trading with European countries. Reportedly, the first Pugs brought to Europe came with the Dutch traders, who named the breed Mopshond, a name still used today.
Pugs quickly became favorites of royal households throughout Europe, and even played a role in the history of many of these families. In Holland, the Pug became the official dog of the House of Orange after a Pug reportedly saved the life of William, Prince of Orange, by giving him a warning that the Spaniards were approaching in 1572. When William of Orange (later called William III) went to England in 1688 with his wife, Mary II, to take the throne from James II, they brought their Pugs with them.
It is known that black pugs existed in the 1700s because the famous artist, William Hogarth, was a Pug enthusiast. He portrayed a black Pug and many others in his famous paintings. In 1785, Goya also portrayed Pugs in his paintings.
As the Pug’s popularity spread throughout Europe, it was often known by different names in different countries. In France, it was called Carlin; in Spain Dogullo; in Germany Mops; and in Italy, Caganlino.
Marie Antoinette had a Pug named Mops before she married Louis XVI at the age of 15. Another famous Frenchwoman, Josephine Bonaparte, had a Pug named Fortune. Before she married Napoleon Bonaparte, she was confined at Les Carmes prison. Since her beloved Pug was the only “visitor” she was allowed, she would conceal messages in his collar to take to her family.
In the early 1800s, Pugs were standardized as a breed with two lines becoming dominant in England. One line was called the Morrison line and, reportedly, was founded upon the royal dogs of Queen Charlotte, wife of George III. The other line was developed by Lord and Lady Willoughby d’Eresby, and was founded on dogs imported from Russia or Hungary.
Pugs were first exhibited in England in 1861. The studbook began in 1871 with 66 Pugs in the first volume.
Meanwhile, in China, Pugs continued to be bred by the royal families. When the British overran the Chinese Imperial Palace in 1860, they discovered several Pugs, and brought some of the little dogs back to England with them.
Two Pugs named Lamb and Moss were brought to England. These two “pure” Chinese lines were bred and produced Click. He was an outstanding dog and was bred many times to dogs of both the Willoughby and Morrison lines. Click is credited with making Pugs a better breed overall and shaping the modern Pug as we know it today.
Pugs became very popular during the Victorian era and were featured in many paintings, postcards, and figurines of the period. Often, they were depicted wearing wide, decorative collars or large bows around their short, thick necks.
Queen Victoria had many Pugs, and also bred them. The queen preferred apricot-fawn Pugs, whereas another Pug fancier, Lady Brassey, made black Pugs fashionable after she brought some back from China in 1886.
Pugs were introduced to the United States after the Civil War, and the breed was recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1885. At first, Pugs were very popular, but by the turn of the century, interest in the breed waned. A few dedicated breeders kept breeding and, after some years, the breed regained popularity. Founded in 1931, the Pug Dog Club of America was also recognized by the AKC that year.” – http://dogtime.com/dog-breeds/pug

And Just Adorable
I mean just look at that face what is not adorable about it?
“In fact, “Pit Bull” isn’t a breed, but a term used to describe the American Pit Bull Terrier, the Bull Terrier, the American Staffordshire Terrier, and the Staffordshire Bull Terrier.”
Unfortunately Pit Bulls are usually thought of as dangerous and aggressive dogs.
Any incident that a dog is involved in is never the dogs fault it is only the fault of the person who is supposed to be in charge of the dog.
Why is the Pit Bull a popular dog breed?
People have created this negative stero-type of Pit Bulls and that is why Pit Bulls are commonly seen shelters.
Many people are kind and go to shelters to adopt Pit Bulls because they want to break that bad stero-type.
Did you know that Pit Bulls are actually banded from some countries?
“Bull and terrier breeds were created in early 19th-century England for the popular spectator sports of bull- and bear-baiting. When those sports were deemed inhumane and became illegal 1835, dog-fighting sprung up in its place — and thus was the trait for dog aggression bred into the genetic line.” – http://dogtime.com/dog-breeds/american-pit-bull-terrier#/slide/2
Each bolded word below is a reason for why the Australian Shepard is a popular breed and each paragraph below goes into further detail on that reason. This post also shows the history of the Australian Shepard breed.
Australian Shepards are a very popular dog breed because of their fur markings and eye color, size, and their intelligence.
Aussies are beautiful
Australian Shepards (Aussies) are well known for their beautiful fur markings. They are often bred with other types of dogs for their pretty markings. There are two known categories on how we describe an aussie’s fur marking. One of the categories would be merle colors and the other category would be tri-colors.
According to an Oh Tiny Heart blog post, the proper way to create a merle colored aussie is to breed a tri colored aussie and a merle colored aussie. When you breed a merle colored aussie and a tri-colored aussie there is a 50% chance that each individual puppy will be merle colored or tri colored. “Common sense tells breeders: if merle is a dominant color gene, why don’t we breed 2 merle colored dogs and increase our odds? Sure, that could work.” – Oh Tiny Heart blog post
But when you breed to merle dogs genetic defects are more common for the puppies. Breeding to merle dogs is called a double merle, it possess both dominant merle genes. “Double merle dogs; while it is a gene and not a color per se, are typically described as mostly white, with light, sometimes minimal merling patterns. Due to this lack of pigment, the dog is prone to hearing and sight issues.” – Oh Tiny Heart blog post
Aussies have a variety of different eye color combinations. For example one of Orlov’s eyes is blue and the other one is a very dark brown.
An Aussies size
Aussies come in miniature and standard sizes. Therefore they are great apartment dogs if trained well, and if they have a proper amount of exercise. If aussies do not get out their energy then they may knock over things and run around in the house.
They are focused and intelligent dogs
They take direction very well, and are very focused. They are energetic and therefore they can be great agility dogs. They love to run and jump.
According to AKC, “Although there are many theories about the origin of the Australian Shepherd, the breed as we know it today developed exclusively in the United States.” Aussies were bred as herding dogs. Since they were bred as herding dogs they need lots of exercise to minimize their energy levels. Therefore they are great agility dogs.
Each bolded word below is a reason for why a French Bulldog is a popular breed and each paragraph below goes into further detail on that reason. This post also shows the history of the French Bulldog breed.

French Bulldogs are a popular dog breed because they are low maintenance breed, they are a small dog breed, everyone loves a cute flat faced dog, and Frenchies are taking over Instagram which makes it hard to escape their cuteness.

French Bulldogs are a low maintenance breed. Just make sure that your frenchie’s wrinkles are dry and free moisture, in order to keep them clean. But every dog needs to bath and groomed a least every few months (depending on the breed.)
Frenchies a small dog breed
Frenchies are a small dog breed, that is what makes the French Bulldog the perfect “hand bag” dog. Because of there size they are perfect for people who live in apartments or in the city.

Each bolded word below is a reason for why a poodle is a popular breed and each paragraph below goes into further detail on that reason. This post also shows the history of the poodle breed.
The poodle is one of the most popular dog breeds in America. Poodles are a great dog to get because of hair, size, color, smartness, athletic ability, and a interesting history.
If a member in your family has allergies a poodle is a dog that doesn’t shed. Poodles unlike most dogs don’t have fur. Poodles have hair which means that the hairs keep on growing and growing. If you go to an a allergist for hypoallergenic dog breeds they might recommend the poodle. Unfortunately no dog is 100% hypoallergenic because their dandruff will shed.
Comes in 3 different sizes
Many people complain about dog sizes. Some people may so “Awww, that dog is super cute, but way to large for my tiny apartment.” Well your in luck if that’s the case because poodles come in 3 different sizes. One size is a standard poodle the biggest size a poodle comes in. Then next is the miniature. Lastly the tiniest type of poodle the toy. If you live in a open space and have a backyard with space then the standard poodle is for you. If you want a lap dog that is not to big or not to small, then a miniature sized poodle is for you. If you want a tiny dog that is still, active but also a lap dog and a dog that can be in the city then the toy poodle is for you. Poodles also are called tea cup poodles when they are extremely small. The teacup poodle isn’t an official poodle size.
Poodles come in about 4 colors: tan, brown, black, white, and even gray. But they can also come in many other colors theses are just the most common. The poodle has a large variety of colors and sizes which is a good thing. The problem with tan and white is the colors are light enough that you can easily see the poodles tear marks. When you get a black poodle you might not be able to see its eyes. So I personally think black, brown or gray, would be the best choice for poodle coloring.
Poodles are one of the intellect dogs. Since they are smart they can learn tricks easily. Also since they love to please people, they are good for seeing eye dogs, therapy dogs, and lastly service dogs. Disabled people would be best with a lab, German Shepard or a poodle.
Poodles are energetic dogs and have great athletic abilities. Poodles have long legs and because of that they can do more tricks.
Poodles were originally a hunting dog in Northern Europe. The name poodle comes from the German word which means puddle because poodles are surprisingly water retrievers. The poodle has poofs of on the ankles and lower back of the poodle, because back then and it was meant to keep the poodle warm when playing in water or hunting. Poodles have many different cut styles. The most popular is the continental clip. The poodle is known as more of a fancy dog because of its looks.
In conclusion poodles are really great dogs for anyone! They are meant for anyone and everyone. They are also pretty cute!
There are over 300 different purebred dog breeds, such as the poodle, the french bulldog, the great dane, the pug, and many many others. But that is not even counting mixed dog breeds, such as labradoodles, golden doodles, maltipoos, and puggles.
A majority of mixed dog breeds have part poodle, because people think that they will get a *hypoallergenic dog. For example to make a labradoodle you need poodle and labrador DNA in the dog to consider it a labradoodle. The labrador is a shedding dog while the poodle is *hypoallergenic, so when you cross them the puppies **should turn out *hypoallergenic. Many people love poodles or poodle mixes because they are usually *hypoallergenic.
If you are allergic to dogs but you want one you should consider a poodle mix, or a poodle.
We will be writing about the most popular dog breeds, and not just the purebreds, but the known mixes, and maybe even a few mutts too.
Each post will be titled for example: Popular Dog Breeds: French Bulldog
Thanks for reading this post! We hope you enjoy our popular dog breeds posts.
*Dogs that are hypoallergenic still shed dandruff.
**If the dog is mixed with many other dog breeds then it may be hard for the poodle gene to be “seen” in the dog. Because it is cross with many many other dogs breeds the poodle gene may be lost in the dogs DNA; therefore the dog will probably not be hypoallergenic.
