We’ve all heard the saying that a dog owner tends to look like their dog, (sharing similar features with their dog) and, even taking on the personality of their pooch, such as sharing the same temperament and the same characteristics. Research also shows that people are attracted to breeds that share their personality traits. This probably explains why dogs are our best friends.
There are a lot of factors to consider when choosing a dog: Does the breed fit your lifestyle? Should you get a hypoallergenic dog? What kind of energy or temperament do you want in your dog? Whatever the reasons are, the pooch that finally catches your eye is going to say a lot about you.
Perhaps you may not notice that you were drawn to breeds with pretty much the same temperament as you. For example, Poodle owners tend to adore finer things; while Schnauzer owners are often up for something new; Golden Retriever owners like to make sure things go according to plan and tend to be more sporty, while French Bulldog owners don’t mind if things don’t go according to plan. Hmm, is this why we don't really see Golden Retriever owners and Bulldog owners hanging out together?
Here are some personality traits that are often seen in pawrents of these amazing breeds!
