There’s a lot about dogs that TV can tell us and there’s a lot that TV can get wrong. However, thanks to shows like Dogs 101 and channels like DOGTV, we are starting to learn and understand just how intelligent and unique each and every canine truly is. The more we understand about breeds and possible behavioral traits, the better we can understand the dogs we choose to bring into our homes.
Make sure you take the time to really get to know a dog before you consider adopting. Remember that television isn’t always right when it comes to dogs; keep in mind that seeing one bad dog in the press doesn’t mean the entire breed is a threat. Develop an understanding of the breed and also make sure you’re ready to give your future dog the time and attention he or she needs to grow into a friendly and loyal companion.
