Questions & Answers

Have questions about easiest dogs to own? We have answers!

What makes an easy going dog breed?

Different people have different definitions for “easy” dogs. For some, that might mean a dog who is smart, obedient, and easy to train. For others, that might be a dog with low energy who doesn’t need to be exercised much. And for others still, that might be a dog who sheds minimally and doesn’t need to be groomed often.

What are some of the easiest dog breeds to own and the most easy going dogs?

Depending on what you’re looking for, there are tons of different dogs that are easy to take care of. Doodles are an all-around excellent choice—these Poodle hybrids have happy-go-lucky attitudes and they’re a cinch to train. They’re also non-shedding! Of course, you also have lazy and affable French Bulldogs, obedient Retrievers, non-shedding Poodles and many more!

Are Doodles easy going dog breeds? What is the easiest dog to take care of?

Doodles aren’t just easy—they’re some of the most amazing dogs you’ll ever meet. Doodle dogs are crosses between Poodles and other breeds (a Labradoodle is a hybrid between a Lab and a Poodle, for example). These dogs are hyper intelligent, fun, non-shedding, and make incredible family companions.

Are French Bulldogs easy dogs to take care of?

Both French and English Bulldogs are famously lazy (but in a good way). Bulldogs would rather invest their energy into seeking snacks and naps than spending hours chasing a ball or squirrel. Frenchies are an ideal companion for those who prefer lazy weekends to intense exercise sessions with their pup and want easy dogs to care for.

Are Labrador Retrievers one of the easiest dogs to own?

Both Labrador Retrievers and Golden Retrievers are easy to take care of dogs and are wildly popular because of their incredible obedience and their loving personalities. Although Retrievers need more exercise than a dog like a French Bulldog, their intelligence makes training an absolute breeze—perfect for someone who doesn’t want a stubborn pooch and wants easy dogs to care for.

What about Yorkshire Terriers? Are they easy dog breeds to take care of?

Many small dog breeds are perfect for dog-lovers who want to live the easy life. Yorkies, Malteses, Bichon Frises, Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and many other small breeds make life easy because they need less exercise and eat less than bigger dogs—and they come with the benefit of fitting snugly in your lap.

How does Uptown Puppies work?

Families can browse our list of upcoming and current litters. Once you’ve found your dream dog, we’ll put you in contact with the puppy’s breeder. From there, your breeder will keep you current on all of the important milestones in your dog’s life—such as diet changes, health check results, travel arrangements and more.

What makes Uptown different?

You have hundreds of choices when it comes to finding a puppy. The downside is that nowadays there are so many dishonest and unethical breeders out there, that it can be tough to know who to trust. We’ve personally vetted every breeder and business listed at Uptown, meaning NO puppy mills allowed.

Are there any litters available now?

Definitely! You’ll be amazed at just how many puppies are available at any given moment. But, these dogs are super popular—it’s common for new litters to be fully reserved within days of being listed. If you see the perfect puppy for your family, act fast to adopt them before someone else does!

How do I get my puppy?

Businesses and breeders in the Uptown Puppies network can arrange travel for your puppy in a number of ways. The most commonly used method is air transportation. Your puppy can easily be flown to your closest, most convenient major airport for quick pickup (only available in the Lower 48 states).

How do you vet breeders?

We’re serious about vetting breeders, and we only allow the best, most ethical people into our network. With our Breeder Pledge (all businesses and breeders pledge to breed and raise their puppies humanely) and No Puppy Mill Promise, you can feel confident bringing home a puppy from one of these breeders.

How do I know that my puppy will be healthy?

It’s important to feel confident about your puppy’s health, especially with so many puppy mills around the country selling sickly dogs. Breeders at Uptown are required to give their dog complete health checks before they ever reach your home, covering your pup’s nose, ears, eyes, teeth, respiratory system, gastrointestinal system, cardiovascular system and more.
