About This Quiz

We all like to think we're above chasing trends, but when it comes down to it, are you really such a rugged individualist? For instance, no one wanted to wear high-waisted jeans when they first hit stores, but after you saw how good they looked on your coolest friend, didn't you cave in and buy a pair? Similarly, you may scoff at your sister's love of Goldendoodles, but don't you secretly want one yourself? If the answer is yes, you're in good company, since this breed is trending across the nation!

Why are we talking about trends so much? Because this quiz is all about them! Not only do certain dogs trend with specific age groups, but there are canine qualities people value that correlate to the stage they're at in life. Young people have the energy for high-maintenance dogs, while older people are more sensitive to the ethics of dog breeding. People in their thirties are attracted to family-friendly dogs, while people in their early twenties want a pup who won't destroy the house if they happen to come in late.

Think you're the exception to all these rules? Well, here's your chance to prove it. Tell us all about your dog preferences and we'll guess your exact age. Are you up for it? Let's play!
