When considering adding a new fur baby to your family, you no doubt will want to consider the time commitment your new puppy will take. The last thing you want is a depressed or anxious dog that is not getting the attention and exercise it needs. Certain breeds are very easy going and independent, while other breeds need plenty of exercise, company, and mental stimulation. It’s impossible to know the exact personality your dog will have, but it’s wise to consider a dog breed that typically would adapt well to your work schedule.
There are breeds that suit every job, whether you have a very busy schedule, you work from home, or you have a flexible work schedule. Here are ten of the top dog breeds that fit these varying schedules.
Don’t be intimidated by their size, as the Bullmastiff makes a great dog for someone with a busy work schedule. These patient, low-energy doggos were historically bred to be guard dogs, and will be content with spending some quality time with you after work. Another bonus is that the bullmastiff rarely barks, so you don’t need to worry about him disturbing your neighbors all day.
The Chow Chow is surprisingly described as having some feline qualities, which makes it a great dog for a workaholic. As much as you’ll want to snuggle with this fluffy, teddy-bear-like dog, they don’t love physical affection. They’re known for having a proud, independent spirit, which is pawfect for someone with limited time.
