Many breeds that are currently popular as family dogs and favorable pets have much diverse origins. Some dogs were bred as hunting dogs in order to help out their master. These dogs possessed skills like retrieving, fighting, tracking etc. Since they were used by hunters, they were bred to possess a dynamic amount of energy. They were popular for their speed, agility and aggression. Many breeds were even bred to hunt down big game animals like bears and boars. With capabilities like these it is too much to ask the dog breeds to adjust as a docile home ridden pet. But it’s typical of us to do so and the dogs are selfless enough to give it a try. Sometimes dogs seem difficult to train if they don’t get a master who is capable of handling them. Just how a stubborn kid requires a strict mother, the smarter breeds require shrewd masters. If you are planning to get a dog for the first time make sure you open the doors to a right breed. Otherwise, be ready for many episodes of your pet ingesting your socks, chewing on your footwear or even eating up your breakfast! Listed below are the breeds you might want to stay off when you go pet-hunting for the first time!

      actually retrievers are quite willing! they were bred to be partner for hunting dogs, most of the dogs on this list were bred to be independant working dogs. so they are incredibly stubborn

    For people that have no idea how to train dogs, ALL dogs are impossible!

    My best dog ever was a Alaskan Malamute/Chow Chow mix, he liked no leash–but he would lay down, never pull–and none of the rest with either breed was a match. He told my family to mind him, and not do what we were doing, only theee times OF COURSE to physically save us all thrice.

    My newest dog is 3 year old Japanese Akita. My first female animal ever. She is AMAZING and so well behaved! This girl would let a burglar in the house without making a sound, but she wouldn’t let them do anything like leave again!

    My family has had very nearly one of each of these breeds in my life and they have all be wonderful, well-behaving family animals in many ways!

    A German Rottweiler that was the BEST baby sitter ever for all of us when we were kids, she would push us to the bathroom when we were toddlers when she knew we had to pee but were avoiding going potty anytime soon. So smart, so loyal and protective.

    Two Dalmatians that never made a mess or tore up a thing!! And loves cats and horses and children, always making all of them mind all the family rules.

    The Airedale was a great hunter, loyal protector and always listened to his master! Strongest determination comes from what you allow that to b as owner!

    The Mastiffs, the Sharpei, the Heeler, the Siberian, the Staffordshire Terriers.


    And no one in my family has ever been a ‘trainer’ nor had a dog trained by an official trainer or anyone except our family.

    What dogs and humans share so deeply for the last few decades is gross, a highly sought display you think is LOOKING good (just looks…) is all it seems to be, with such misrepresentation of both humans and dogs by ridiculous popular approval of such allowance of anti-intellectualism these days.

    Dear Dogs,
    I hope more humans learn to stop treating you like their nice car or fancy purse. Maybe someday most, or even all (*gasp*), owners will treat you like the friend, family, or co-worker you are instead of something expensive and popular just to show off their perceived good looks of a disgusting non-reciprocating relationship so many of you poor animals are trapped in.

    Dalmatian: I had a Centurion Dalmatian that was bred by a woman who breeds for Purina Pet Farms. I brought her to four semesters of puppy class religiously but as for home practice I usually did that once b4 next class because she picked it up fast. You know, sit, stay, down, come, stay while gently pulling on the leash, and heel. Heel was an ongoing practice but it was fun with her, not hard to train.
    My real reason for posting, is the hair shedding. She shed SO MUCH HAIR my wife and I often wondered why she wasn’t bald.
    One last. I don’t see Pomeranians on the list. We had two, and I swear they were the most hardheaded dogs I’ve ever known, but truly I miss them the most.

    When I was growing up my Poppy had a Rottweiler that was very well trained and was protective of our family.

    After the rotty died we had 2 chows, 1 mixed with lab and 1 mixed with German Shepherd. Those 2 dogs were the most loving, intelligent, and protective dogs I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. However, you have to keep them groomed or their coats will matt all up. They got wet once and I believe my mother compared their odor to that of a used feminine napkin. Still, these couple of breeds have been nothing but awesome in my experience. As children, we used to climb all over these dogs, the rotty too. They never once bit us or acted like they were going to. Very good temperament on these dogs.

    I thought a dachshund would be #1, because they are horrible but cool dogs when you are hunting they act like bigger dogs in a small body

    i have owned several breeds of dogs, germ shepherds, poms, poodles,border collie, yorkies, pekingese,westies. but none were ever as easy to train as my present sib husky. housetraining was a breeze, she hated to be scolded. She know basic commands, sit, stay, heel, down, leave it,etc. she does have a high prey drive and therefore is not allowed off leash outside except on my fenced-in 4 acres. she is so gentle when playing with puppies (even small breeds)that i watch in wonder.she will lay down so they can climb on her and she just uses her nose to push them. and as for shedding, yes she sheds heavy twice a year for about 2 weeks,the rest of the time is light shedding. she is a joy to have
