We at Pikes Peak Vet believe there is a "right" dog for everyone. It's a good idea to find out more about the needs of different breeds before you get a puppy so you are ready to handle what they may throw at you. In that vein, the American Kennel Club (AKC) has come up with a handy evaluation tool that can help you select the right breed for you. Click the puppy below to go to their Dog Breed Selector tool and find out what the best breeds are for YOU!
If you've already decided on or gotten your pup and would like you to know more about its traits and needs, the following links will take you to the AKC website's page that corresponds to your pet. There you will find information on care, training, health needs, feeding, grooming and history. Please get to know more about your dog so that we can together be prepared to offer him or her the best possible shot at a great life!
These are the most popular breeds in our Pikes Peak Vet database. This does not mean they are the most popular in the world. We will be adding to this list as we are able.
