Dog Breed Guides

The BarxBuddy Dog Breed Guide might be our favorite section in our website (other than our online pet supply shop, of course). Don’t get us wrong: It’s not that we’re partial to “pure” breeds over mixed breeds or crossbreeds. We just love looking at dog pictures. Whether you have an AKC-recognized breed or a mutt with a colorful history, you’ll learn a lot about the history of dogs by studying breeds’ histories. The guides in this section explain how pedigree influences how much a dog barks and whether the dog might be easy to train. You’ll also learn fun facts about dog breeds and what their grooming needs are. If there is one thing we’ve learned by creating this dog breed guide, it’s that no breed is better than another. It’s all about preference!
