Dogs And Their Owners- Itâ€™s Not Just About Looks!
The humorous and popular notion that dogs and their owners resemble each otherâ€™s physical appearance can also be applied to personality types.
According to a study by Psychology Today, owners choose their puppy look-alike based on the concept of familiarity. Humans are accustomed to seeing their own faces multiple times a day, so when they see a dog that subtly resembles them, they are more inclined to feel comfortable with that breed. The same can be said about finding a complementary personality with your dog. Similar to making new friends, you want to pick a dog that you will get along with rather than bicker with.
To find your perfect match, you can now visit websites to fill out a questionnaire regarding your personality type. The majority of the questions inquire about their activity level and how dedicated they would be to maintaining a healthy lifestyle for their canine. Based on the userâ€™s answers, the site will recommend the top five most compatible breeds.
My family has always brought home bigger dogs such as German Shepherds, so I was not surprised to see that my number one pick was a Bernese Mountain Dog. Bernese Mountain Dogs are long-haired working canines from the farmlands of Switzerland. Being a young, active woman, the site-generated choice seemed to be a logical one. Yet the same may not be said about an individual who is more of a relaxed homebody who would rather have a small cuddle buddy.
