“If you’re a family you want to avoid the stronger, working pedigree dogs,” said Hoke aka @dogtrainerofficial.

The famous trainer, who has worked with stars like Lady Gaga, explained that puppies like German Shepherds, Malinois and any type of cattle dog were specifically bred for demanding jobs.

“They need really solid jobs,” Hoke told The Sun.

“Some of the most difficult cases I see are people who have come as a family and have rescued or purchased a working breed dog that they were not prepared for.

“And when you get them as a family dog, you don’t really have the time or the energy to train them to detect bombs or herd livestock.”

If these puppies aren’t stimulated with activities that use their skills or talents, they’ll find a way to drain their energy.

This is when the naughty behavior begins.

“So they’re sitting at home hoarding that energy thinking, ‘I need something to do because I’m bored,'” Hoke said.

“They’ll start chewing up your furniture, barking at every moving thing and rounding up your kids.”

While the German Shepherd might not be your first choice now, Hoke said these breeds make great pets for those who have the time and energy to give them what they need.

While it takes a special person to own a cattle dog, the dog trainer also spoke to the US Sun about some very low maintenance breeds that could be your future family member.

“One of the best breeds you can get as a family is a golden retriever or maybe a lab,” Hoke said.

He explained that they are naturally relaxed pets who normally enjoy being with children.

BEST BREEDS

For breeds other than this iconic duo, he recommends looking super tall or fairly short.

On the small end, Hoke had wonderful things to say about pugs.

“Really low energy for the most part,” he told the US Sun.

“They’re pretty relaxed, they’re really small, so they’re good in small spaces if you don’t have a garden.”

Another small dog that Hoke has had great experiences with is the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.

“He’s one of the greatest family dogs. Very cool,” he said.

“They understand space. They tolerate annoying kids very well. And they’re not super obnoxious when it comes to responsive barking.”

Interestingly enough, the trainer also recommended picking a massive breed like a St. Bernard or Bernese Mountain Dog – if you can get them through the door.

“They can be a bit more troublesome, but they’re bigger, so they have less energy to drive you crazy and that sort of helps.”

Finally, Hoke said a pit bull can be a great option for families if you find the right one.

“I know a lot of people are against it, but the American Pitbull Terrier or any pitbull with a really good temperament is a good family dog,” he said.

“You don’t want to have one that had a rough upbringing or wasn’t properly socialized.”
