From her blog:
I found something of interest from “Breeds to Match Your Personality Type”. It says that Type A humans (impatient, stressed, driven types) usually do better with Type B dogs, and Type B humans (laid-back, easygoing types) usually do better with Type A dogs.
Which begs the question, what Type are you? And what Type is your dog? (Or better yet, what Type of dog should you have?)
How To Match Your Personality Type With Your Dog’s Type
Does your dog match your personality? Or complement it?
It is said that Type A people usually do better with Type B dogs.
This book will help you determine which type your dog is…
Type A Dogs (best for Type B Humans):
- Belgian Sheepdog
- Border Collie
- Cairn Terrier
- Fox Terrier
- Irish Terrier
- Jack Russell Terrier
- Siberian Husky
- Springer Spaniel
- West Highland White Terrier
- Yorkshire Terrier
Type B Dogs (best for Type A Humans):
- Basset Hound
- Boston Terrier
- Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
- Clumber Spaniel
- French Bulldog
- Great Dane
- Great Pyrenees
- Irish Wolfhound
- Saint Bernard
I’m definitely a Type A. And my dogs have always been Type B. According to the book, this is the perfect combination!

I like to help Dog Parents find unique ways to do things that will save time & money — so I write about "outside the box" Dog Tips and Dog Hacks that most wouldn't think of. I’m a lifelong dog owner — currently have 2 mixed breed Golden Aussies that we found abandoned on the side of the road as puppies. I've always trained my own dogs and help friends train theirs, as well. Professionally, I worked at a vet and have several friends who are veterinarians — whom I consult with regularly. (And just because I love animals so much, I also worked at a Zoo for awhile!) I've been sharing my best ideas with others by blogging full-time since 1998 (the same year that Google started… and before the days of Facebook and YouTube). My daily motivation is to help first-time dog owners be better prepared from the first day your new puppy enters your home. I like to help dog owners understand what's 'normal' and what you can expect in terms of living with and training your dog — how to get through the ups & downs of potty training, chewing, teaching commands, getting your dog to listen, and everything else that takes place during that hectic first year! When I'm not training, walking, grooming, or making homemade treats for my dogs, you will find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites). To date, I've written over 500 articles for dog owners on this site!
