While plenty of people are dog people, it seems that millennials have a special obsession when it comes to dogs. I mean, who can blame us? Dogs are pretty amazing. It can be tough, however, when deciding which dog breed will be best for you. Lucky for you, we have compiled this list of 10 dog breeds for millennials that are absolutely perfect! Check it out!
1. Australian Shepherd
This breed has the same strong work ethic that millennials have. They are also very intelligent. They do, however, require a lot of exercise. If you are a millennial who is into fitness, this breed is for you. You can take them on hikes, on a run, or even teach them to do yoga with you. However you decide to exercise this breed, they are sure to be your new best friend.
2. Boston Terrier
These dogs are perfect for millennials who live in small apartments in big cities and don’t have the time to take their dog on long walks every day. This breed is small and quiet, as well as friendly, sociable, easygoing, and of course, lovable.
3. Shiba Inu
Like most millennials, this breed is highly independent. That can make them difficult to train, but they are naturally quiet and alert so basic training should be all that’s necessary for this breed. They make great companions for individuals or families.
These dogs are extremely popular, especially among millennials because they always look like they are smiling and happy. No matter what you may be going through, you can always count on your corgi to bring a smile to your face. They are active dogs, however, so having time to spend playing with them outside is important.
5. German Shepherd
This breed is truly a dog lovers’ dog, which is perfect since every millennial seems to be a dog lover. They are loyal, very easy to train, and protective of their owners. They do, however, require a lot of exercise and they shed a lot. This breed is a great companion for individuals or families and will quickly become your best friend.
6. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
A lot of millennials tend to say that they are totally down for adventures all day, but also totally down for lounging around in bed all day. That is what makes this breed so perfect for millennials. Not only would they be up for a day of adventures or a day of lounging, but they would approach both with equal enthusiasm.
If you’re the type of millennial who loves to be the star of the show, this is the right breed for you. With this breed, you will have a playful pup who can be your sidekick. They will love to hang around just you or you and all your friends. They are also small in size, which makes them great for millennials in small apartments.
This dog will quickly become your number one fan. They love being close to their owners and are very playful. If you want a dog that will follow you around, this is definitely one of the dog breeds for millennials!
This large breed is perfect for the couch potato millennial. Despite their size (which can get up to 130 pounds!), they would do surprisingly well in apartments (as long as there is no weight limit). They all calm, quiet, but also makes for the perfect guard dog.
10. Basset Hound
This is another great breed for the millennials who want nothing more than to just lounge around all day. Just be mindful of their howl, which can become quite loud if they are distressed.
