Persuasive Speech

Topic: Golden Retriever is the best dog.
Specific Purpose: To persuade my audience that the Golden Retriever are the best dog for a family to own.
Central Idea: There are three primary reasons that Golden Retrievers make excellent family pets.
Main Points: 1. Friendly with kids, elderly, athletes, sick people and all persons.
This breed of dogs is highlighted as one of the most conducive for families because they are sweet and protective, taking very well both with adults and with children, other dogs and with cats and any living creature. Its greatest value is due to its sweet temperament, intelligence and willingness to learn.

2. Golden Retrievers are used successfully in field trials, hunting, obedience, and as guide dogs for the blind.
The Golden Retriever, with its intelligence and eager to please attitude, is one of the most popular breeds in the United States. The working ability that has made the Golden Retriever such a useful hunting companion also makes him an ideal guide, assistance and search and rescue dog. The golden-colored coat is the hallmark of this versatile breed, and can range from light to dark gold. They are used for many important jobs, such as guide dogs for blind people, drug or bomb sniffing at airports, or helping to rescuing people from earthquakes and other natural disasters. This breed is also used in water rescue/lifesaving.

3. Grooming is not too difficult.
The smooth, medium-haired double coat is easy to groom. Comb and brush with a firm bristle brush, paying particular attention to the dense undercoat. Dry shampoo regularly, but bathe only when necessary. This breed is an average shedder

    Pit Bull Research Paper

    Pit bulls are the most misunderstood dog breeds in the world. When people hear the word pit bull they automatically think of dogs fighting and attacking. When people say "pit bull" they're usually referring to a range of breeds and, often, a mixed-breed dog. (Lawrence, C Louisville Magazine Feb 2007) People think they are a very dangerous breed of dog. Because of this, some areas do not allow pit bulls and breeds like them. Pit bulls are the leading culprit of dog bites in America, but on the other hand, they are the gentlest dogs people will ever meet. The National Canine Temperament Testing Association tested 122 breeds of dog and Pit bulls placed the 4th highest with a 95% passing rate. (http://atts.org Feb 2012) With this fact it can only be how the dog is raised. People who own Pit bulls should be obligated to train their dog well. With any dog you need to train it so the owner has the upper hand. Owners need to know that they have to be dominant and for their dog to be obedient towards their orders. The dog comes second to themselves. Pit bulls are one of the most gentle of the breeds. Pit bulls are notable therapy dogs who visit patients that are recovering from emotional trauma. Pit bulls are also used for their service in sniffing out drugs on the borders due to their sense of smell being stronger than any other breed. These dogs are great family dogs and were babysitters in the 19th and the early 20th centuries.…

    The breed that is most commonly picked to be used as a service dog is the Labrador retriever. According to Moore (1995-1996) “Approximately 60-70% of all working guides in the U.S. are Labradors.” This breed of dog is used because of how smart they are, they want to work to please you, and they are large enough to fit in public places. Several occasions I have watched service dogs come in to a restaurant and not be bothered by all the commotion; they will just lie quietly under the table at the feet of their owner. This is the number one reason the Lab is most often picked to be a service dog.…

    "…the meanest, ‘baddest' dogs in North American Pop Culture have been, without a doubt, pit bulls." Even though this stereotype exists, she challenges it by giving her own relation to pit bulls. "To me, Ahab, is a regular family dog: a joker and a couch potato, hungry for affection and table scraps, gentle and patient with ear-yanking children." She is able to state the real trouble and give information on what is being done to help the subject. "Currently, Canadian animal experts and organizations are lobbying for more comprehensive dangerous dog legislation – something that holds owners of all breeds accountable and doesn't penalize responsible owners of maligned breeds." I feel George is rhetorically effective over all with it comes to her essay, "Pit Bull, Bum Rap?" She gets her position across and leaves you thinking about what can be done to solve the…

    Toy Poodles can be any of these various colors: black, tan, white, yellow, brown, blue, gray, silver, and red. Maltese on the other hand are always white. Not only physically do their color differ but how their coat looks also. Averagely, Maltese hair is long (can be short if you prefer the cut) and silky while poodle’s hair is corded, dense, and rough. With the information I just provided, anyone can conclude that a maltase would be way easier to maintain than a poodle.
