A DOG expert has revealed the three breeds that first time owners should avoid.

So if you want a pooch but aren’t sure which breed is right for you, you’ll need to pay attention.

"Extraordinarily territorial. Designed to protect livestock from large, predatory animals.

He added: “One of the best, most people friendly dogs on the planet. One of the best dogs on the planet with children.

“Extraordinarily prone to dog aggression. Genetics do matter ladies and gentleman, cannot stress that enough.

“The people that go ‘my dog wouldn’t hit a fly’ – you’re not helping the breed, you’re actually hurting the breed.

“Being realistic about the breed and showing decent ownership is key.”

Finally, if you are thinking about getting a pooch, the trainer advised that a Border Collie shouldn’t be on your radar.

He concluded: “Number three – the Border Collie.

“The most intelligent breed of dog on the planet, it’s smarter than most humans.

“If you don’t know how to satisfy such intelligence, if you don’t know how to mentally stimulate the dog and fulfil those instincts, it’ll quickly become reactive towards traffic and things that move fast.” 

The TikTok clip, which was shared under the username @southenddogtraining1, has clearly left many open-mouthed, as it was shared just one day ago,  but has quickly amassed a whopping 219,500 views. 

Social media users agreed with the man’s claims and were eager to express this in the comments. 

One person said: “I really was waiting for the Malinois, but these three breeds are also true.”

Another added: “100% agree.”
