Top 5 Medium Sized Dogs

If you’re looking for a dog that’s not too large nor too small, then a medium-sized dog is for you, especially if you are a first-time dog owner. Most medium-sized dogs are charming, smart, and blasting with energy!

We absolutely love dogs of all sizes here at Dogsized but here are our top 5 picks for medium sized dogs.

#1. Basenji

The Basenji originates from Congo and is a dog breed that makes for a very endearing and intelligent companion. One of their most defining characteristics is that they don’t bark much, if at all. They are also unique in that they are similar to cats, as they spend lots of time grooming themselves.

Basenjis are quite charming by nature but very stubborn and tough to train too. They also tend to escape or wander off, especially if you don’t secure your backyard properly.


#2. Poodle

The Poodle dog breed comes in three different sizes, standard, miniature, and toy sizes. Since we are looking at medium-sized dogs, the standard poodle is the appropriate choice, especially if you are looking for an intelligent dog breed. 

They are both regal in appearance and dignified in character and also quite athletic. They are also popular because they are hypoallergenic, which means they are big dogs that don't shed. So, if you have any allergy sufferers in the house, then this is the dog breed for you.

#3. Bulldogs

Bulldogs are excellent pets for those who are more introverted by nature and prefer to spend most of their time at home. They are muscular in size and also affectionate and easy-going by nature. While they usually require daily walks to keep them fit, they are also very content with lounging and napping in the house for the rest of the day. And while they may not be overly big dogs, they are the best companions to hang and cuddle with.

#4. Collie

If you are a fan of Lassie, then Collies shouldn’t be an unfamiliar dog breed to you. They originated from Scotland and were herding dogs. This explains why they have an incredible sense of loyalty and are one of the best breeds to call a best friend. They are also intelligent, easy to train, and protective of their family. But, while they may bark at strangers, they are also not the aggressive type.

#5. Siberian Husky

The Siberian Husky is one of the most beautiful dogs in the world because of their wolfish-like appearance and bright-colored eyes. They are intelligent, independent, and very athletic dogs. This makes them a perfect pick for those who enjoy spending time outdoors.

Just keep in mind that they can be a handful at times and are difficult to train, as many of them tend to wander off and escape even the most secure fences.

There you have our top 5 adorable medium-sized dogs. A gentle reminder that choosing the right dog breed for you and your family is more than picking the dog’s size. Part of being a responsible pet parent is making sure that you assess your needs and gauging that everyone in your household is onboard into welcoming a new pooch into your home before making the final decision.
