“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 the likes of Lady Gaga explained that puppies like German Shepherds, Malinois and other breeders were bred specifically for demanding jobs.

So having the dog sitting at home while you work or travel isn’t ideal at all.

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

“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.”

Although these dogs are slightly more demanding than others, Hoke explained that they can still be great pets for those willing to work.

“You have to prepare for it. I don’t think a lot of people realize how much effort it will take,” the famous dog trainer told The Sun.

Hoke advises people with previous responsibilities like children or a demanding job to seek out low-energy pets that require less training.

It comes as a vet shared the dog breeds she would never own based on her medical experience with puppies.

Post on TikTok Dr Whitney Terrell says there are a number of dog breeds she would never own, in part because she is a veterinarian and her experiences with these different breeds, while some are just personal taste.

Chinese crested and other hairless breeds

The first breed Whitney says she wouldn’t own is the Chinese Crested, adding that she just doesn’t like hairless animals.

“They’re zitty, they’re fat,” Whitney says, “the same with cats, they kinda feel like a ball sack. That’s a no for me.”


Referring to them as ankle biters, this vet says Chihuahuas aren’t his cup of tea.

“I’m scared of being stepped on, more than likely a bit if I have one, it’s usually a one-person dog,” she adds.

She says there are a few Chihuahuas who come to the surgery where she works and are friendly, but the vast majority of this breed are aggressive ankle biters.

Brachycephalic breeds (Pugs, Shi Tzu, Boston Terriers, etc.)

“Some are really cute, but they can’t breathe. Literally, they can’t breathe,” says Whitney.

“They snore, I already have a snoring husband, I don’t need anything else snoring.”

She adds that these dog breeds usually suffer from dermatitis, have a lot of allergies, and have yeast, odor, and gas.

German Shepherd and Belgian Malinois

These have the potential to be great pets, but Whitney says they can require a lot of training, which she wouldn’t have time for because of her job.

She adds that “95% of those we see in clinics want to bite your face off because they’re not properly trained.”

If you’re considering getting one of these dogs, she says you shouldn’t take the decision lightly and make sure you have time to train and care for them.


Whitney says that in her experience, these dogs are quite hyperactive and can’t sit still for two seconds before having to run again.

She adds that this breed can also have regular ear infections, which can cost quite a lot in vet bills, and on top of that, it’s also very expensive to get groomed.

“Just too much maintenance for me, I’d rather have a hunting dog,” she finishes.
