About This Quiz

What would a dream home be without a dog, but a dream gone bad? Indeed, it would be a veritable nightmare, a hellscape of good taste, the perfect amount of space, a sterling location, ideal yard or garden, and exquisite decor - all completely bereft of any soul whatsoever. 

Sure, a dog will muck up your house by putting hair everywhere, chewing things up, tracking mud across your floors, crapping in your garden, and knocking your valuables off shelves, but they'll add far more than they take aware. Dogs will make your house a place that is safe, friendly, and full of love. They are also very good at being a burglar alarm.

That's why it's so much fun to imagine your dream home with your dream dog right there in it. One way to identify the latter is to dwell on the former. If you like a lot of space and a farmhouse, you need a different sort of pooch at your side than if your dream home is a sleek urban penthouse with no outdoor space and only 800 square feet of space. Let's build that home and then we'll figure out who will be sharing it with you!
