Planet Dog: A Doglopedia – How To Match Your Personality Type With Your Dog’s Type

I haven’t read the book Planet Dog: A Doglopedia yet, but Pat Doyle of the Doggiewoggie Dog Blog has.

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):

  • Airedale
  • Belgian Sheepdog
  • Border Collie
  • Brittany
  • Cairn Terrier
  • Collie
  • Dalmatian
  • Fox Terrier
  • Irish Terrier
  • Jack Russell Terrier
  • Siberian Husky
  • Springer Spaniel
  • West Highland White Terrier
  • Whippet
  • Yorkshire Terrier

Type B Dogs (best for Type A Humans):

  • Basset Hound
  • Bloodhound
  • Boston Terrier

  • Clumber Spaniel

  • Great Pyrenees
  • Irish Wolfhound

I’m definitely a Type A. And my dogs have always been Type B. According to the book, this is the perfect combination!
