Best Dogs for Men

Questions & Answers

Have questions about the best dogs for single men? We have answers!

Does size matter when it comes to the best dogs for men?

The Rock might have a thing for French Bulldogs, but most guys tend to stick with bigger breeds. Let’s face it, a German Shepherd or Labrador Retriever looks a lot more rough-and-tumble than a Pug or a Yorkshire Terrier. Bigger dogs tend to be more athletic and more adventurous, too, possibly making them “the best dog for a single man.”

What kind of coat should the best dogs for guys have?

Guys appreciate low maintenance, so look for a dog with an equally low maintenance coat. The ideal pup should have a coat that sheds minimally (or not at all) and doesn’t need too much grooming. Huskies might look cool, but understand that those big dogs blow off mountains of fluff every year. The best dog for single male will vary based on you, the owner.

What kind of personality do the best dog breeds for men have?

That all depends on you, the owner. If you’re a city dweller who spends half the day commuting and just wants to relax on the weekend, low-energy, cuddly breeds might be for you. Country boys might desire a more rambunctious dog like a Lab or a Golden Retriever. There are just as many breeds out there as there are types of people.

Best dog breeds for the urban man? Best small dogs for men?

So you live downtown and work a demanding job. You’re away from home most of the day, and you want a smaller dog who will be happily wagging his tail when you finally get home from the office. Take a look at French Bulldogs, Pugs, Boston Terriers, English Bulldogs, and smaller Doodle breeds like the miniature Labradoodle or Cockapoo.

Best dog breeds for the suburban male?

You have a little more room to roam and you’re looking for a dog that will fit right in at the local dog park. Some of the best breeds to consider are larger Doodle breeds like Labradoodles, Bernedoodles, Goldendoodles or Aussiedoodles, or dogs like the Golden Retriever, Labrador Retriever or German Shepherd.

Best dog breeds for the rural man? Best working dog breeds?

You own a truck and probably use it, too. If you’re looking for an outdoor companion or hunting buddy who will always have your back, consider an Australian Shepherd, Labrador or Golden Retriever, Basset Hound, Boxer, Border Collie, Cocker Spaniel, Dachshund, Rottweiler, Doberman, or many more.

What happens after I find my new best friend?

After we connect you with your puppy’s breeder, he or she will keep you updated on the important milestones in your dog’s life such as dietary changes, health check results, and upcoming travel plans. Naturally, your breeder will be available to answer any questions you may have, too.

Why is Uptown Puppies different from other places?

It’s exciting that the internet can connect us to breeders all over the country, but beware of scammers and puppy mills—nowadays, it’s hard for truly honest breeders to be heard through the noise. We created a place where the truly elite puppy breeders and dog lovers have a place to shine. It’s better for you, and better for your puppy.

Are there any litters available now?

There are dozens of different litters available currently, with many more ready for adoption soon. The only “problem” is that these puppies tend to get reserved fast. It’s common for newly listed litters to be fully booked within hours. That means if you see the dog of your dreams, the time to act is right now!

How do I get my puppy?

Easy. Once you’ve spotted your new best friend (the best dog for a single guy), we’ll connect you directly with the dog’s breeder. Your breeder will help you set up travel accommodations for your new puppy, with air transport being the most common. Air travel is available to major airports within the Lower 48 states only.

How do you vet breeders with dogs for single guys?

Our dedication to vetting and evaluating breeders is how we keep Uptown Puppies totally puppy mill and scam-free. All breeders who join our network must pass and adhere to our comprehensive Breeder Pledge, as well as our tough No Puppy Mill Promise. Choosing a puppy from Uptown means peace of mind, period.

How do I know that my puppy will be healthy?

We’ve all heard the nightmare stories from families who unknowingly bought a sick puppy from an unethical breeder. Every business and breeder in our network is required to give their puppies a full health check before they’re adopted. These checks are truly nose-to-tail, covering every aspect of your new dog’s wellbeing.
