When it comes to dating, forget about filling in complex questionnaires and personality profiles, and take a look at your date’s dog. A study by the psychology department at Bath Spa University, shows that a dog owner is likely to choose a breed with traits that mirror his own. When dating a dog owner, remember: his choice of canine companion doesn’t lie when it comes to his character.
For clues as to whether your prospective partner is outgoing, intelligent, reliable, self-confident, or creative, look no further than his favorite pooch. So if your dream date is the reliable, creative sort, what type of hound is dogging his heels? Here is your guide seeing if his four-legged friend can tell if this is Mr. Right or you’d be better off choosing a cat.
To find a partner with a get-up-and-go attitude, then the other end of his leash is attached to a pastoral breed or a utility dog such as a bulldog.
Pastoral breeds originated from dogs that herded livestock such as cattle, goats, or sheep. Other examples include German shepherd dogs, bearded and border collies, Pyrenean mountain dogs, corgis, and Shetland sheepdogs.
Utility dogs include breeds that once worked for a living (such as bulldogs with bull-baiting or Dalmatians running alongside their masters’ carriages) but whose occupations now have no place in the modern world. Let’s hope this doesn’t apply to their owners! Examples of utility dogs include the Boston terrier, Chow Chow, Japanese Akita, Keeshund, and Lhasa apso.
If your Mr. Right is someone to pitch your wits against, don’t be put off if his dog is a less-than-macho toy-dog. A handbag dog is not only a sign of intelligence but of being willing to embrace new experiences. This clever chap could be the owner of a canine cutie such as a Chihauhua, Tibetan terrier, Pekinese, Pug, Bichon frise, or poodle.
In case you’re not convinced, some notable owners of toy breeds include the fashion designer Valentino, the Emperor Napoleon, and eminent scientist Sir Isaac Newton (also a cat owner!)
Macho machismo is all very well, but if you desire an amiable soul-mate to get along with your friends then the gundog owners are your number one choice. Gundogs include pointers, retrievers, and setters.
For that creative spark in a relationship, you’re off to a good start if your date owns a toy-dog breed. Not only are their owners likely to be intelligent, but these little dogs also pack a big punch when it comes to their owners knowing what they like and expressing themselves.
If reliability is the name of the game, then let’s face it, owning a dog is a pretty good start. Unsurprisingly, pretty much all the owners taking part in Bath Spa’s survey rated highly for reliability but those with utility dogs came out top!
So now you know what your date’s dog says about his personality. But from reliable to creative, intelligent to outgoing, there’s no denying that owning a dog is an excellent start when it comes to being a decent, loving person.
