The German Shepherd Dog or Alsatian is a breed of dog. Because they are eager to please, they are easily trained in obedience and protection. German Shepherd Dogs are often used as working dogs in many capacities, including search and rescue (SAR) dogs, military dogs, police dogs, or guard dogs. They are also used as assistance dogs (particularly guide dogs), though not as much as Labrador Retrievers and Golden Retrievers.

The Golden Retriever is a relatively modern and very popular breed of dog. It was developed as a retrieving dog to use while hunting wild fowl. Today it is one of the most common family dogs as it is easy to handle, very tolerant and does not require very much of the owners, other than regular exercise, food and veterinary check-ups. It is often affectionately known as a Golden or "Yellow Retriever". Golden Retrievers are observed to be highly compatible with people and other dogs, though after the seclusion from dog life it may develop human qualities and then may not be fond of other dogs. It will bark when startled but other than that it makes a poor watchdog due to its friendly nature. Golden Retrievers are particularly valued for their high level of sociability towards people.

A Schnauzer is a German type of dog. The name comes from the German word for moustache because of the dogs' distinctively furry noses. Kennel clubs generally subdivide these dogs into three breeds by size:

* Miniature Schnauzer
* Standard Schnauzer
* Giant Schnauzer

Though derived from a common ancestor and sharing certain physical attributes and personality traits—notably intelligence, a friendly personality (but possessing a knowledge of when to be aggressive), and a mischievous sense of humor—the three breeds are separate types of dogs. Schnauzers are also very loyal dogs.
