golden retriever. but i really don't think a rottweiler or german shepherd is good for a pet as they can both have vicious streaks in them.

Golden retrievers are supposed to be very friendly, lovely, gentle and easily trained dogs...but are also a mid-large size dog.

i think it depends upon ones family and liking..some people like to keep pamerion (which i hate very much because it is only for show if some street dogs also barks it gets afraid and comes back in the house) i like douberman and dream to keep it at home (dont know when i can keep) but apart from that german shepherd or bull dog or labradoor all these dogs can be best as a pet.

I think it really depends on many things, such as the size of dog you want, the nature of the dog, the behaviour etc. I noticed a lot of people have suggested the labs, but they can be a good size dog, and can also be strong and overpowering unless you train them well. I've also understood them to be fairly active dogs, which would not do well if a person does not have an active lifestyle. Like any other dog who likes to be with people, they can also be destructive if left alone a lot, so always a good thing to investigate into and decide on a variety of things that are important to your own life.

I think the best dog for a pet would have to be a lab. I have an 18 mo. old yellow lab and he's just the mostlovable dog that I've ever known or had. He's extremely intelligent. He was so easy to house train and before he was even a year old he could sit, stay, speak, lay down,and shake. He's a great people dog, very friendly and non-threatening to guests that come to our home. He follows all 3 of us everywhere when we're outside and loves to be right by us when we're in the house. He's also a great watchdog. We live out in the country and when I'm home alone I feel very safe with him. He only barks if a strange car pulls up in the drive or someone comes to the door that he doesn't recognize. He also gets along great with our cat.

On the average, a dog's lifespan is about 10-12 years but this depends mostly on how you care for your dog. If you have no intentions of breeding or if the dog is "pet quality", you may consider "spaying" for them to have a healthier and longer life. Breedwise, personally, I'd go for a labrador retriever, for it's best in terms of patience (temperment), and that they are people-oriented, meaning they are happiest when they are with you, and trust me they'd do what they can to show it to you..

I think the behavior of ANY dog will depend on your behavior, the time you spend with it and the effort to train it what you like the pet to do. In that respect, my family all have Dobermans, but be aware, they have a mind of their own.

I have a labradinger which is a cross between a springer spaniel and a labrador. He is a great dog very intelligent easy to train a great companian he will live between 12-14 years he is very good with my 3 year old son and my 4 cats and i believe the labradinger is a very good dog to have
