Dog is the most popular pet in the world. Its no wonder, there are many main dog protagonist in cartoon movies. Today we will show you TOP 10 best cartoon dogs.
Goofy is one of the best friend of Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck. It is one of the funniest cartoon dog of all. Goofy is a Bloodhound who wears human clothes. Goofy was not Goofy from the begining. He was known under other names like Dippy Dawg and George Geef.
Pluto is another dog from Mickey Mouse, but unlike the Goofy, Pluto is 100% dog. He is not wearing human clothes, he does not bark etc. His origin is unknown and it is probably mixed breed. Pluto is medium dog in yellow to orange color with black ears and short coat-
Brian is 8 years old talking Labrador Retriever. It is a member of Griffin family from the show Family Guy and he appear to be a struggling writer attempting essays, books, novels, screenplays and newspaper articles. As most dogs on this list, Brian is a dog that acts like a human. He can talk, walk on his hind legs and he drives Toyota Prius. The funny thing is, that he is probably the most rational of all characters in the Family guy.
Scooby is a Great Dane cartoon legend. He should be chasing ghost with his friends, but most of the time he is running away from them. His best friend is the famous Shaggy Rovers. The thing, that Scooby loves the most, is food. I guess, that is the thing he has in common with all real dogs.

Sighthound is a type of a dog, that hunts by sight rather than scent. Because they use sight, all the sighthounds have to be very fast dogs.
Sighthounds are the fastest dogs in the world and the famous Greyhound is part of this group. Because they need to be fast, they have lean bodies, flexible back and long legs.
Sighthounds are very old and ancient group of dogs. For example Saluki or Sloughi are very old breeds.
I mention some questionable breeds into the video. Rhodesian Ridgeback, Thai Ridgeback and Basenji are sighthounds based on some major kennel clubs while some other kennel clubs put them into different group. But since there is always at least one major kennel club (FCI or AKC) that mark them as sighthounds i decide to include all three into this video.

Cane Corso is descendant of Roman dog breeds, that were used in wars. When the Roman Empire falls, Cane Corso was used as guard, but also as farm dog and hunter. As you can see, it is very skilled and versatile dog, and especially the hunting ability is great, he was used to hunt dangerous animals, like wild boars.
Coat of Cane Corso is short, but very very dense and glossy. I personally finds it great looking. Cane Corso color can wary, the most common color of Cane Corso is black, light or dark shades of gray, or in light or dark shades of fawn, red, or brindle. Its also very common for them to have white patterns over their body, mostly on their nose, chest, toes and chin.
The thing you will love about Cane Corso is, that they dont drool that much, if we compare them to other mastiffs. But of course, they will still drool, they are mastiffs. They also have less wrinkles than typical mastiff, their skin is tighter.
They are also more trainable than other mastiffs, but again, they are still mastiffs. Which means, they have mind of their own and that they are independent animals. It will not be super easy to train them well, you will have to be consistent and strong leader.

Stay is pretty common command, but its not as easy as sit or come, especially not for puppies. Puppies just hate to stay still, they want to move around and explore everything. But with patience and frequent training, it is possible to learn your dog to stay!
It is important, that your dog already know commands like sit, lie down or come before you start with Stay. Start the training with putting your dog into sitting position. After that, say the word „Stay“ and put your hand infront of your dog, with your palm facing towards him. Wait just a few seconds, even three seconds are great when you just started and after that give your dog a big praise and treat reward. Gradually, but slowly increase the distance of the stay, but dont ask your dog for too much too early.
If your dog breaks the stay, dont shout at him. Just dont give him praise or reward and try it again, but lower the time and length of the stay. Be very patient, it is the key to succesfully teach your dog this command.

Do not be fooled by their size. Most of these dogs, especially when they are younger, are very active. And a lot of time, they are very protective. It is like they are not aware, that they are so small and they feel they are your guards.
Toy dog breeds are trainable. But as with all dogs, you must be firm and consistent. Which might be very hard for some people, because it can be hard to be firm on these little cute dogs with big eyes. But if you want dog, that will not be chewing, nipping etc, you will have to be patient, consistent and firm on them.
It is also advised to not over protect your dog! You will often time see small dogs that are afraid of everything. It is because their owners are over protecting them. It is a mistake. Its much better to act to them like to normal dog.
