PetScoop: Dog Breeds Reflect the Owner's Personality

Researchers have established links between owners' personality traits and the breed of dogs they preferred. The Press Association reports that the Kennel Club assisted the research conducted by scientists at Bath Spa University. Their findings:

Breeds were split into seven groups: gundogs (eg golden retriever), hound dogs (eg greyhound; beagle), pastoral (eg German shepherd; border collie), terrier (eg Staffordshire bull), toy (eg Chihuahua), utility (eg bulldog) and working (eg Doberman).

In particular, owners of pastoral and utility breeds were more extroverted, gundog and toy dog owners were more agreeable, and owners of utility, toy and gundogs were more conscientious. Owners of hound dogs turned out to be more emotionally stable, while owners of toy dogs were more open to new experiences.
