Companion dogs are also called non-sporting dogs. These dogs are diverse in backgrounds and original use and they come from all across the globe. Here you will find dogs of all sizes, a great variety of personalities and traits, and with individual inbred skills.
Companion or non-sporting dogs can make very good pets. Each of the companion dog breeds is unique in its appearance and in its coat. You can find small dog breeds like the petite Bichone Frise to large dog breeds such as the Chow Chow or American Eskimo Dog, and everything in between. With the vast difference between them, picking a favorite is based on personal preference. Some, like the Schipperke and Tibetan Spaniel are uncommon sights in the average neighborhood. Others, however, like the Poodle and Lhasa Apso, have quite a large following. The breeds in the Non-Sporting Group are a varied collection in terms of size, coat, personality and overall appearance.
