The 20 Worst Dog Breeds for First Time Owners

Dogs make great companion pets; there’s a reason they are referred to as ”man’s best friend.” However, some are harder to keep than others. Of course, all of them are capable of making messes and running wild, but some are harder to manage than others. The natural instincts of some dog breeds just make them harder to train and control, making them bad choices for first time dog owners. Everyone should have a dog, but before bringing one home, thorough research needs to be done to ensure you haven’t taken on more than you can handle. After all, the pounds are full of unwanted dogs; you don’t want to add to their numbers. Making sure the dog breed agrees with your lifestyle is most important. There are many things to consider before bringing home a dog and we’d like to help. Since some dog breeds are present bigger problems than others, here’s a list of the 20 worst dog breeds for first time owners in alphabetical order.

1. Airedale Terrier

The Airedale Terrier, the largest breed of Terriers, definitely has a large personality as well. They are independent and intelligent, but also can be very stubborn. They’re friendly, but also courageous. This breed is a lot of fun as they’re eager to please, but they also need a lot of supervision. They love getting into and onto things, such as kitchen counters and trash cans and they are notorious diggers. They’ll bring the same high-energy level and enthusiasm to playing games as they will digging up your garden. An Airdal Terrier needs supervision while around other dogs and pets as well as with children. This breed needs both physical and mental stimulation on a daily basis. If you have the time to spend with this breed, it’s definitely worth it, but be sure you’ll be able to give one proper attention before bringing him home.
