Medium dog breeds can have a variety of different sizes and weights. They are larger than a smaller dog breed but smaller than a large dog breed. Typically, they stand between 45 to 60 centimetres tall from the shoulder and weigh around 14-27 kilograms.
Medium dog breeds are wonderful companions with many of them making the perfect running buddies – cue the Border Collie! Training medium dog breeds is vital for their health and vitality and also their safety. Having a good recall is paramount, particularly with scent hounds such as the adorable Beagle. Most excel in dog sports and will need at least two good brisk walks per day to stave off boredom, keep them healthy and prevent behavioural problems.
Many medium breeds can also work well in apartment settings if exercised adequately and many also have short easy-to-care coats. However, some medium breeds will require professional grooming and a little more space to move. As with all dog breeds it is vital to ensure you research the history of the breed and to ensure it matches with your lifestyle.
Your pet’s health is priceless. Don’t leave it up to chance.
