About This Quiz

Did you know that there are over 300 breeds of dog out there in the world?  That's a whole lot of pooches if you care to sniff around sometime.  And with a range of sizes and shapes from the tiniest Chihuahua to the most enormous Great Dane and hundreds in between, it's kind of crazy to think that they're technically all the same thing. Dogs are all about diversity.  They're friendly, loyal, devoted and almost always cheerful.  That is unless they're trained not to be, but that's a different story.

There's a reason we consider dogs our best friends as opposed to any animals like a cat or a hamster, and anyone who has a dog knows exactly why.  And since you obviously do have a dog, or you wouldn't even be here, how about we tell you just what kind of dog it is?  How could we ever hope to do such a thing?  Easier than you'd think!  Just let us know a few things about you, about your personality, about your dog and about how they all work together and then boom! We'll have your dog breed pegged in no time.  Take the quiz and see for yourself!
