Border Terrier

Border Terrier | Dog GatesYou better prefer a serious dog fence with this dog.

The Border Terrier is a hardy little dog who will want to be part of your family. They are not as feisty as other terrier breeds, but they do still have a mind of their own. They are intelligent, creatively so, and though they are trainable, they are also independent thinkers, so they are not the most obedient breed. However, they do excel in earthdog, obedience, and agility trials.

Border Terrier | Dog HousesThese are active, agile, athletic dogs who need daily exercise. They are high-energy (though not hyper) and are happiest when they have a job to do. While they are, in essence, a no-frills working dog, they are also excellent housedogs. While they are affectionate, and while they do want your attention, they are not in your face and under your feet every minute. They will be content to be in the room with you, hear an occasional word from you, and get a few hugs a day. Unless you have food -- then all bets are off.

Border Terrier | Dog Training AidsThey have a high prey drive and will chase small furry critters, including cats. They make good farm dogs because they keep nuisance animals away. But they will also kill your son's pet hamster. They will also bolt across the road after a neighborhood chipmunk. They are not car smart and more Border Terriers are killed each year by cars then by disease or old age. Borders are also prone to just wandering off looking for someone to visit. They are really quite friendly! It is best if a Border Terrier has a dog fence -in yard, but even then, be aware that they are the Houdinis of the dog world. They can climb fences and they can dig under them, so you had better prepare to invest in a serious dog fence.

Bloodhound | Dog FurnitureDo dog doors fits in this dog?

Bloodhounds are the perfect companion pet for a human who wants a challenge. Their noble expression can be quite charming and a Bloodhound will be the most affectionate and loyal dog in the world, but you will earn it! They are stubborn. They like to be in charge and they assume that they are. While some breeds aim to please you, the Bloodhound aims to challenge you, just for his own entertainment.

Bloodhound | Dog bark collarsPossessing a superior sense of smell, a Bloodhound is likely to take off on a trail ignoring all your commands to stop. They need to be in a fenced-in yard (and they don't do well with invisible fences) or on a leash at all times. However, they can pull like a tractor, so start training them to walk on a leash early! A bloodhound puppy usually starts behaving like an adult at about three years old, but you will be training your bloodhound for his whole life. A "teenage" bloodhound will be very energetic and need lots of exercise. A "mature" bloodhound might nap all day. Bloodhounds of all ages will need to spend time with you and hate to be left alone. With lots of love and patience, the bloodhound can be well-trained and well-behaved, and several of them have done well in obedience competition.

Bloodhound | Dog DoorsThey are very intelligent, but it takes a while for them to learn not to chew and eat batteries, rocks, towels, and diapers. They are incredibly gentle with children, but need to be closely supervised, because children will be tempted to pull on the Bloodhound's extra skin. Their bark is frighteningly loud and deep. They also howl. So while they can be particularly stinky due to the folds in their skin, and while they can be a touch stubborn, while they can shoot drool and slobber on four walls at once, they are also lovable, loving, loyal, and fun, unless you want them to play fetch -- that they just will not do. They will shower you in cuddles and attention and needs lot of cuddles and attention in return.

Black Russian Terrier

Black Russian Terrier | Petsafe Pet CollarThis dog needs a Dog Retriever Trainer from the very first.

The Black Russian Terrier is large, intelligent, robust, powerful, protective, and territorial. He loves his family deeply but is aloof and distrustful toward strangers. He is a good watchdog, and doesn't usually bark unless there's a reason. He is born with an instinct to guard and protect, and he will protect your family, yard, house, and vehicle.

Black Russian Terrier | Dog Retriever TrainerJust his appearance alone might thwart intruders. He is confident and courageous. He will instantly become defensive in dangerous situations, but relaxes as soon as the danger passes. Because of his size, strength, and dominant nature, early obedience training is really important. He is alert and responsive and adapts well to training.

This dog needs lots of human companionship, and will want to be part of the family. He will want to be with you at all times, following you from room to room and sharing your life. They love to go for rides, so you might need to get a bigger vehicle. Some BRTs want to be touching their owners at all times, just so they know they are still there. They will want to sleep with you and they love to give big, wet, sloppy kisses, especially when you are in a deep sleep. Not that you'll get much sleep because they also snore like chainsaws.

Black Russian Terrier | Dog FenceThey will develop behavioral problems if they get lonely. They need daily exercise and love to hike, swim and jog. They excel in obedience and agility competition. They are excellent jumpers. They are wonderful with children and like to lick leftovers off their faces. BRTs are very gentle and quite tolerant of ear and tail pulls. Just be sure you don't let your toddlers try to ride them like a horse. Their beards get quite wet, especially if they've just had a drink. They can spray water on your walls and ceilings. And they always love to snuggle, whether or not their beards are wet. They can do well with other pets, but two unaltered males in the same household will want to dominate each other. The Black Russian Terrier is a determined, fearless, and deeply devoted dog. With proper socialization and training, he can be an excellent companion.

Black and Tan Coonhound

Black and Tan Coonhound | Petsafe Petsafe collar is recommended in this hunting dog.

Primarily used as a hunting dog, the Black and Tan Coonhound can also make a loving family pet. They are people-oriented, gentle and playful. They love to spend time with their families. They will expect to be allowed on the furniture and they love to go for rides in the car.

Black and Tan Coonhound | Petsafe Most are laid-back and good with children and other animals. However, most will also take any opportunity to chase small animals up a tree and then bark to let you know they've done so. Their bark is deep and booming -- Westminster Kennel Club calls it a "mournful bawl" -- and your neighbors might not appreciate it. Though they do not need to hunt to be happy, they do need moderate daily exercise on a leash or a fenced area.

Black and Tan Coonhound | Patio Pet DoorsA dog fence is important, as the Black and Tan has an excellent nose and will follow his nose on a trail he finds exciting. He will tree the neighborhood cat. These are independent dogs who are slow to mature, so early obedience training is important. These are outgoing, friendly, happy-go-lucky dogs who adapt well to any situation in which they are loved. Just be careful with giving kisses, as many of them like to drool!

Bichon Frise

Bichon Frise | Dog Agility EquipmentBasically Hunting Dog Collars Online is not suited in this kind of home dog.

The Bichon Frise is an incredibly cheerful little dog who loves to be the center of attention. He likes to think he runs the household, and will want to be at your heels or in your lap at all times. They are naturally gentle, intelligent, playful, and happy.

Bichon Frise | Electric Pet CollarThey make a good family dog, but many breeders do not recommend they live in homes with small children, because the children could easily accidentally injure them. And if harassed by a child, a Bichon Frise will get snappy. They do, however, get along well with other household pets, as long as they get lots (and lots) of their human's attention. They do not do well being alone for hours at a time, and can start to chew at their own skin and fur out of distress.

Bichon Frise | Hunting Dog Collars OnlineThey can also bark out of boredom and loneliness, which will not necessarily endear him to your neighbors. Speaking of barking, the Bichon Frise is good at it, and will bark often. They have great hearing and will bark at everything. They do not need lots of exercise, but will require regular short walks. They are social dogs and like to get out and about and see people. The Bichon Frise does best with a loving, patient owner, as they are notoriously slow to housetrain.
