Dog Breed Guides - G
Gosh, we're up to G. Only great dogs here, Golden Retrievers, Great Danes and the Great Pyrenees to name a few.
The German Shepherd Dog is extremely intelligent and make excellent companions and watchdogs, as well as a good family pet, if trained properly. They are excellent protectors of their "pack," often trying to "herd" your family for your own protection.
German Shorthaired Pointer
German Shorthaired Pointers are a versatile hunting breed that is also a good family pet, especially when well trained and given lots of exercise. Their short hair is clean and requires little grooming.
German Wirehaired Pointer
German Wirehaired Pointers are intelligent and eager to please, but need an owner who can correct faults without being heavy-handed or harsh. Compared to other sporting breeds, the GWP does not shed very much.
The Giant Schnauzer breed may be large, but has minimal shedding. It can adapt to any lifestyle, but prefers the outdoors. Giant Schnauzers learns quickly, and sometimes use this intelligence to try to outwit its owner.
The Golden Retriever breed has a great temperament and a strong desire to please. Usually very friendly, this dog loves to interact with people. Generally gentle in nature, this dog tends to get along with kids and other pets.
Gordon Setters are the most serious and sensible. They are an energetic breed that should be in areas where you can run with them. They form a strong bond with their owners, and are very affectionate, strong and have a lot of stamina.
A family-oriented dog who likes companionship, the Great Dane is a good watch dog to boot. This is an active breed and likes an active owner, although the dog does adapt well to apartment living
The Great Pyrenees is a rather large dog, often solid white or mostly white with a few gray or tan markings. Its ears often hang down as well. A calm and purposeful dog, the Great Pyrenees loves cold weather and needs lots of space to roam.
Although somewhat aloof, Greyhounds are usually friendly towards strangers and affectionate with their owners. They are a clean, quite, and gentle breed when indoors. A Greyhound has short hair that sheds a lot less than most breeds.
