To ensure compatibility, make sure that your personality is compatible with your dog’s personality. Schnauzers, German Shepherds and other strong breeds are good dogs for assertive people. Standard Poodles, Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and other gentle breeds are good dogs for gentle people, or people who have difficulty being a leader. Regardless though of the breed, all dogs want a buddy, whether a canine or a human. A Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, for instance, will go crazy if it is left alone by itself.
