No two dogs have the same temperament. Some are sweet and shy, while others are outgoing and have no doubts that they’re top dog. If you’re looking for a particularly confident canine companion, below are five breeds that might make a good match:
1.) Rottweiler: Rotties are not only known for their intelligence and work ethic, they’re also extremely confident. Given proper training and a loving family, these self-assured dogs can thrive as loyal companions.
2.) Jack Russell Terrier: These dogs are ultra-smart and excel at agility and other activities. They know they’re good at their jobs (whether it be running, digging, or chasing) and aren’t afraid to show off.
3.) Labrador Retriever: Labs are known for having an air of calm confidence about them. They’re also playful and make wonderful family pets.
4.) Poodle: It’s not uncommon for poodles to make themselves at home wherever they may be. They’re typically smart, happy, and confident enough to not stress out in unfamiliar situations.
5.) German Shepherd: German Shepherds are naturally good at so many things including police and military work. With this kind of intelligence, strength, and determination, who wouldn’t be confident?
Of course, there are dogs of all breeds and temperaments in shelters and rescues across the country, so don’t dismiss adoption when searching for your next canine best friend.
