However the best dog to get in Australia is: The German Shepard.
There are several reasons for this, but first it’s important to point out that it’s the Labrador Retriever that generally tops lists of what’s the best dog to get’ in the developed world. But Australia is different from the United States, Canada, UK and continental Europe.
