How to Choose Your Ultimate Dog Squad
Copy: Serena Faber Nelson
Taylor Swift has one.
Ellen’s squad even has Alf in it.
So by complete logic, your dog definitely needs
a squad the ULTIMATE dog squad.
But your squad can’t just be filled with any old hound, so we’ve rounded up the picks of the litter you just must have…
THE BORDER COLLIE
Even if you spend your days catching ZZZZ’s, this black and white ball of energy will have everyone thinking you’re the ultimate canine go-getter constantly out chasing balls and rounding up sheep.
One bat of the eyelashes with these guys and you’re out of whatever sticky situation you’ve found yourself in. People will say you’re only friends with them because of their looks, but you know that they’re damn fine cuddlers too!
This guy will sniff out the best trails, parks and snacks anytime, anywhere. They’ll totally help you cruise through the airport lines too.
THE GERMAN SHEPHERD
No need for security detail. Get a GS on your squad and no-one will want to mess with you at the park. Added bonus points for when all the ladies realise that underneath the tough exterior is a total snuggle puppy.
One day out with these guys in your squad and you’ll have stories for life. “Hey Spot, remember that day we chased the cat, and ended up on a yacht with Leo DiCaprio?” The Staffy can make it happen.
Too high maintenance you scream…and you’ve got a point. These little guys love a bit of drama and attention. But you know what else they love? You. And they’ll have your back forever.
A bitsa this and a bitsa that, the Bitsa has street smarts you never knew existed. They can turn on the charm with a button and will keep you down to earth.
THE SHIH TZU
They doe eyed beauties may seem all sweet and innocent, but they just use that to lull unsuspecting folks into parting with extra treats, pats and hugs. Add friend +
When you need glamour, you call in the experts. And no-one does high level sophistication and style like these guys. With an Afghan in your squad every day is a good hair day.
Who would you have in your #dogsquad?
