The top five dog breeds that will make your life a disaster

Call a breed registry or peruse the AKC descriptions of dog breeds and you will be lead to believe that any dog breed if given just the right amount of TLC,  a few obedience classes,  and a good romp in the park every few days, can make a good household pet.

Unfortunately,  some dog breeds are predisposed to making your life a living nightmare.

Although there are some standout dogs of any breed, when you play the numbers, the following are our top 5 disaster dogs for dog owners who live normal lives, with normal incomes, with normal families, in normal houses, who do not want to worry that their dog is eating their house, running away and getting lost,  or chowing on the face of their neighbor’s kid.

  1. Chow Chow: The AKC says “Affectionate and devoted to family, the Chow is reserved and discerning with strangers.” We say, “The chow chow is a beta fish in bear clothing.”
  2. Afghan Hound: The AKC says  “Known for being aloof, dignified, and for having a highly individualized personality, Afghan Hounds are prized and loved by their owners as companions and members of their family. We say, the Afghan is “Forrest Gump with four legs.”
  3. Siberian Husky: The AKC says “New owners should be prepared to provide an outlet for exercise daily, whether through walks or an enclosed space in which to run.” We say “not unless you own a sled.”
  4. Akita: The AKC says “Akita temperament can range from calm to bouncy and aggressive, so the breed should always be supervised around small children and other animals. Akitas like to be “pack leader,” so obedience training is also necessary for a harmonious household. We say “ WOOOHOO. The AKC got one right.”  We also say that it is “A matter of when – not if” with this breed.
  5. Shar Pei: The AKC says  “They are bright and learn quickly, but early training and socialization are important, as is daily exercise.” We say “this breed needs more than botox to get our approval.”
