Afghan Hound

If you're getting a dog for the first time, you are probably uncertain as to what breed of dog to get. While many people like the stigma that large dogs give off as being protective and loyal, they do require a lot of more care and maintenance as far as grooming, feeding and exercise needs, etc. However, you may have heard horror stories about small dogs with people referring to them as "ankle biters" or stories of how they snap at little children, etc. While some of these tales are true with both dogs, they are the exception and not the rule for many different breeds. If you've heard that the Lowchen is a good dog to start with, you've heard correctly.

The Lowchen is a very loving dog that is friendly and happy as well as being loyal to the family members. Unlike some small breeds of dogs, the Lowchen gets along very well with children. While all children should be taught how to treat dogs, the Lowchen is a very tolerant patient dog. The biggest problem that arises between children and many small breeds of dog is that young children often think these dogs are 'puppies' because of their small size and, consequently, don't know the proper way to hold and handle these dogs. They often drag them or pick them up upside down or similar scenarios. To the adult small breed of dog, this is very frightening. While the Lowchen dog would probably be frightened as well, they have a lot of patience with children. When they are raised with children, they tend to bond with them and want to spend as much time as possible with them.

The Lowchen is a very easy dog to train due to their intelligence and willingness to please their owners. This is often a scary thing for a first-time dog owner. However, you may want to get some assistance for a professional dog trainer or possibly enroll your Lowchen in some basic obedience training. The cost of this is usually quite reasonable in terms of what you are getting. Obedience training is important to a dog and should be instilled in them as young as possible. What the dog learns as a puppy, he will usually take with him into adulthood so you want the dog to have good habits.

If you are looking for a companion to love and spend time with, the Lowchen is the perfect choice for your first dog, as they make great companions. They are perfectly content to lie on your lap or next to you on the couch, just cuddling. They are not demanding and will not demand all your time, but love spending as much time as possible with their owners.

Their needs are very basic and will allow you to learn more about dog ownership as you are getting to know your new dog.
