## Factors For Dog Size

Some factors that do matter when considering your new furry friend:  Age, Size, Gender and Special Needs.

### Age

While some dogs act like puppies well into their senior years, here are some important factors to remember about each age group:

### Puppy (8 weeks - 6 months)

• High Energy
• Require training
• Frequent bathroom breaks
• Still growing
• Will not be spayed/neutered

### Older Puppy (6+ months - 1 year)

• Typically high energy
• Still growing
• Require training

### Young (1+ year - 3 years)

• May or may not be high energy, depending on the individual
• Might know some basic commands
• Might already be crate trained
• May be still growing

### Adult (3+ years - 7 years)

• May or may not be high energy, depending on the individual
• Might know some basic commands
• Might already be crate trained
• Fully grown

• Typically lower energy
• May require wellness maintenance
• Usually Housebroken
• Usually spayed/neutered
• Usually crate trained
• Fully grown
• Typically require less exercise

• While these characteristics are generalizations and every dog is unique, it’s helpful to consider these points carefully when choosing the right age range of dog for you and your family.
• Do you have the time to commit to a young puppy?
• Do you prefer an older, more established and less energetic dog? Or, are you looking for a dog in between the two?

## Size

• Size really does matter, but not the way you might think.
• Considering a dog’s personality size is just as important as considering their physical size.
• And depending on the size of your home, your dog food budget, and your lifestyle, choosing the right size dog is an important aspect of ensuring a successful match.
• Smaller dogs in the X-Small, Small and Small/Medium categories require less food and less square footage than larger dogs in the Medium/Large, Large and X-Large categories but can be just as large in personality.
• Special consideration needs to be taken with X-Small dogs when around young children. X-Small dogs can be easily injured if a child accidentally drops or steps on the dog.
• If you plan to have your X-Small or Small dog sleep with you, they may need to picked up and put down when getting on and off of tall beds and furniture to ensure that they aren’t injured from jumping.
• Extra-Large and Large dogs require big spaces to accommodate their big bodies!
• If you live in a tiny apartment with very little space, an X-Large or Large dog may not be the best choice for your lifestyle.

## Gender

While gender traits are a real thing, individual personality often trumps gender. Being open to the right fit sometimes means being open to either gender.

### Female

• If not spayed, will go into heat
• Typically live most successfully with other male dogs

### Male

• Typically live most successfully with other male or female dogs
• If not neutered, will seek out female dogs that are in heat
