As of 2015, the American Kennel Club, Animal Planet and Good Housekeeping websites offer quizzes to help individuals determine the type of dog they should buy. The AKC has a six-question test that considers geographic location, household members, other pets, daily activities, and acceptable noise and dirt levels.
After the quiz, the AKC summarizes the prospective owner's statements and allows revisions. Afterward, the site recommends several breeds, listing their traits. Animal Planet's dog breed selector collects information on 10 topics, including preferred size, activity level, interaction style and grooming requirements. Results show a top choice as well as runners-up. The Good Housekeeping quiz asks questions about the prospective owner's lifestyle and preferences before offering a breed suggestion.
