Purpose

We chose thistopic because its a very fascinating theme and I
studied the dog's breeds for a long time.
We think that if the people know more about the breed they choose when they want to buy a dog, they can choose the right one for their
necesities and how they will adapt in their homes. So the family and the dog will live happy

Hypothesis

Every breed had different behavior by evaluating differentbehavior criteria.We will evaluate different puppy breeds and observe:
Friendlyness
Possible growth size
Bathroom necessities
Affection towards humans
Gromming necessities
Playfullness

Experimental Design

We will be working with different types of dogs or breeds, spending time with them so we can evaluate different parameters.

Materials

Dogs
Camera
Interviews with expertsMaterial to write

Procedures

We were given the oportunity to spend time and work with different
dog breeds on a pet store called “La jungla de Timo” and worked with them every day for 2 weeks.

We evaluated and got expert advice on:
Energy level
Exercise requirements
Playfulness
Affection level
Friendliness toward dogs
Friendliness toward other pets
Ease of training
Watchdog abilityProtection ability
Grooming
Heat tolerance

We worked with 8 breeds
shitzu
old english sheep dog
golden retriever
chihuahua
beagle
jack russell terrier
pomeranian
springer spaniel

We worked with baths, feeding, playing, walking, training and caring
about them. We observed their behavior, the reaction between them, the aproach with people, the sleeping time, the activity etc.
Andthe last step was to compare, give them a score in every criteria and make a scale in every breed.

It is friendly towardstrangers. Some can be headstrong.
