Working dogs

The Beagle is a gun dog and therefore needs to be kept stimulated, as do Border Collies, which are known as sheep herding dogs. Therefore, they are best paired together. When taking them on walks, being able to keep them stimulated by the places you take them or keeping them distracted with toys would be the best for them.

Strong dogs

You might be confused as to why the French Bulldog is paired with dogs of a much bigger size. This is because of their strength. Even though Bulldogs are smaller dogs, because they are strong, they do not do well with dogs of a similar size that are active. As such, pair this small dog with a larger dog with a calmer temperament, such as a Labrador or Golden Retriever. It is still wise to supervise them in case the larger dog mistakenly harms the small dog.

Other breeds

Most breeds will be ok together personality-wise and will usually follow the lead of their human; if the human likes the dog then so will they. But according to Sprucepets (https://www.thesprucepets.com/compatible-pups-2804605#:~:text=There%20are%20always%20exceptions%2C%20but,get%20along%20with%20another%20canine), there are a few aggressive breeds that might not get along with other dogs, such as the Kerry Blue Terrier and the American Pit Bull.

Overall, the best way to keep you and your pups safe if you dog-walk as a profession is by getting a type of insurance for dog walkers (https://www.cliverton.co.uk/policies/dog-walking-pet-sitting-pet-minding-pet-taxi-insurance/?cro=policy-test). Insurance will cover you if anything goes wrong when looking after a group of dogs to keep peace of mind for you and the dogs' owners. By choosing the right breeds to stay together, your dogs should be safe and happy with their other doggo companions.
