About This Quiz

A house is only a home when it is lived in. To some, home is where you hang your hat, but to most of us, a home is more than just shelter. It's a personality encoded in physical objects. From the size and placement of our homes to their layouts to the way we inhabit them, our houses say everything about us, betraying our likes and dislikes, how we like things to look, and feel, and sound.

Owning a dog is also connected to personality and lifestyle. Owning a dog is a huge time commitment. While this can be shared among a family, it cannot be put off. When you own a dog, it's as much a part of your life as your home for the years you have together. Some people favor large dogs, while others prefer small dogs, but one look at someone's house and you can rule out certain breeds.

Imagine your dream home, from the location to the materials, to the way you'd decorate it and set it up. Imagine your fantasy bathroom, bedroom, and drawing room. Think hard about these choices. We will judge your choice and name what dog breed you own!
