What Is A Medium Sized Dog?

If you want to adopt a new dog, there is a chance that you may be conflicted between a big dog or a small dog, am I right? This decision can be tough to make for some. So, why not make it easier on yourself and consider a medium size dog instead?

These dogs are some of the most popular breeds to adopt in the country, and it’s easy to see why. For instance, they are the perfect size for those who want to get a dog that is not too big to handle or feed. They are also a good pick if you do not want a dog that is too small and delicate for kids to play around with.

How Big Are Medium-Sized Dogs?

Small dogs will often weigh about 20lbs or less, and large dogs will weigh anything over 60lbs. Medium dogs will span between those two different dog sizes, which is a wide range to choose from.

The best way to categorize them is to do so based on three main distinguishable groups of medium sized dogs:

#1. Medium small: This classifies dogs that are borderline small/medium such as corgis or french bulldogs.

#2. Medium: These are dogs that fall within the perfect medium size range like beagles and border collies.

#3. Medium-large: These are pooches that are medium/large like standard poodles and Siberian huskies.

Benefits of Adopting Medium-Sized Dogs?

While the temperaments and personality traits of medium-sized dogs will usually vary depending on the breed, there are still several benefits that they all share in common. For one, medium dogs are often sturdier and can handle more physical activities than smaller dogs.

A good case example would be if you are someone who enjoys physical exercise and training. You will find that a Chihuahua will find it way more difficult to keep up with you than a Husky, for example. 

Another notable benefit is that they don’t need as much room, easier to transport, and don’t consume as much food as larger-sized dogs. This keeps both you and your wallet in good shape, which is why many families opt to adopt these pooches often.

How To Choose A Medium-Sized Dog?

When it comes to picking out the right dog, it goes beyond just settling on one size. After all, this is just the first step. There are several follow-up considerations you have to keep in mind. Some of which include; temperament, grooming needs, feeding habits, which will help you determine if they will be a good fit for you and your family.

In such cases, you can try to put together a list of dog breeds that interest you and take your time to do thorough research on each of them. For instance, some medium sized dogs also happen to be hypoallergenic. This makes them a perfect fit for those who live with allergy sufferers.
