What Canine-Ality Are You

If you were a dog what would your personality be? The ASPCA has identified 9 different personality groups for dogs based on energy level and motivators. Scroll down to take our fun quiz to find out your Canine-Ality!

Posted on
  1. Canine-Ality Question 1: What is your dream job?

    A delivery food taste tester – I never have to leave the house and get to eat whenever I want.
    An artist – I see the world in a special way, and I need the freedom to explore it on my own terms.
    An athlete or fitness coach – I have to keep my body moving all day long or I’ll go CRAZY!
    Therapist or counselor – I’m a great helper and listener and I love to be with people one-on-one.
    Researcher – I’m a life-long student! I like to learn new things and get straight A’s, and I never give up.
    A professional networker – I just love meeting new people, all day every day!
    A comedian! I love making people laugh!
    A predictable job – maybe in a factory or office. I like routine and knowing who I’m going to encounter every day.
    Something FUN with lots of variety! I can’t stand doing the same thing every day.
  2. Canine-Ality Question 2: You don’t have any plans for the weekend. How will you spend it?

    I want to show my friends a good time, maybe go to my favorite museum or park, take a cooking class together, or play games.
    Order a few pizzas and binge-watch a new show on Netflix. And snooze.
    Just see where the weekend takes me. I might start with some journaling or sketching and see what inspires me from there.
    A nice run, clean the house, work on a project in the garage/craft room, get happy hour with my buddies, and finally relax at home before bed.
    Go to a movie or take a long, quiet hike. Maybe my best friend will come with me, but it’s ok if I spend the weekend alone.
    I always have party plans on the weekend! This weekend is two birthdays, a baby shower, a retirement party, my monthly club night with my besties, and brunch with all my cousins.
    There’s a new running trail I’ve been eyeing, 25 miles long. I should be able to do that and still have time to play a game of pick-up soccer.
    Catch up on some articles and podcasts I’ve been itching to dig into, and there’s a book signing at a library across town.
    Some mellow activities with my best friends, like a leisurely walk or catching up over coffee.
  3. Canine-Ality Question 3: What is your New Year's Resolution?

    I’m going to try to be a little more outgoing, but not too much. I’m naturally very shy.
    I’d like to be better organized to keep track of all the things I like to do! So much to do, so little time!
    I want to start a special project with my friends. Maybe we will join a singing group or a kickball team together.
    I should probably work on exercising more and eating less… but…I really like to just lounge!
    I’d like to make more time for my close friends, and help them with whatever they need, even if it’s just an ear to listen.
    I’d really love to learn a new skill – maybe a new language or take a dance class.
    Meet new people! There are so many interesting folks around, I’d love to spend time with them!
    I’m training for an Ultra Triathlon this summer, and I want to try a new activity like surfing or rock climbing, too.
    I’m trying to have fewer expectations, and free my mind to experience the world more organically. But I do that every day!
  4. Canine-Ality Question 4: What is your idea of the perfect date?

    A special documentary screening with a Q&A after. Then, my date and I can talk about the movie over drinks.
    A trip to an amusement park, or maybe volunteering at a food bank - something unique and not boring.
    Kayaking to a picnic spot, or running in a 5K Fun Run. It’s gotta be active though.
    Watching a movie together on the couch, and ordering too much take out.
    Going to a movie or a show. I’m shy, so an activity where I don’t have to talk too much is good.
    A “Sip and Paint” party where we each make our own painting. We each get to do our own thing, together.
    A quiet corner booth in a yummy restaurant where we can spend all night talking and getting to know each other.
    A comedy show or an arcade, something that will make us both laugh.
    A party where I get to meet all their friends.
