If you are calm and balanced, you can make a conscious choice when you know which dog breeds match your temperament.
The calmest dog breeds
There is no single breed of dog - a champion of calmness - simply does not exist. Moreover, even representatives of the same breed or dogs in the same litter can have a different character. But there are, of course, those breeds, the breeding work with which was carried out, including in this direction. At least buying a purebred puppy of these breeds, you can be 99% sure that he will have a balanced character.

Therefore, all terriers, as a rule, are very mobile, restless and vociferous. From what remains, you can choose a few particularly calm breeds. One of the breeds known for its poise is the English Bulldog - a true gentleman and snob, who, under no circumstances, tries not to lose its importance and innate dignity. A good choice is the Shar Pei, a dog with a natural sense of tact, who knows how to observe personal space, both his own and the owner's. Moreover, she cannot bark.
Of the especially cold-blooded, but no less loyal and loving breeds, one can also name the St. Bernard, Newfoundland, Basset Hound, Labrador, Neapolitan Mastiff, Great Dane and Danish, Mittel Schnauzer, Porselen. From this list, you can already pick up exactly the breed that suits you both in appearance and size, and in terms of keeping conditions.
