About This Quiz

There are plenty of ways to serve your country by joining the military, and not all of them are equally hard on your family. After all, you don't have to go career, and not everyone gets deployed repeatedly on tours of duty in the most dangerous and isolated parts of the world. It really depends on how long you sign up for, what role you take on, and how your family life is set up.

Of course, if you want a dog, you need to make sure that they are the kind of dog who is on board with the way your military service will work. After all, we've all cried tears of joy at the videos of soldiers returning to their dogs after several tours and the dogs sobbing with glee - but before that video came months and even years of the poor dog sniffing tragically at the missing master's door and crying themselves to sleep wondering why they have been forsaken. That means you need a dog who can handle the way that your career is set up, and who will give you what you need when you get home. Let's figure out what dog that might be for you!
