1.Cocker Spaniel

The first dog breed that Adam said is a no no is a Cocker Spaniel.

He said this breed of dog is “highly intelligent” and is “bred to search”.

Adam revealed that most dog owners won’t be able to “satisfy” a Cocker Spaniel’s needs, and thus, they will constantly be picking up things that they shouldn’t.

2. Shar Pei

Although this dog shares it’s name with our favourite High School Musical character, Adam said that the Shar Pei acts like a “grumpy old man”.

3. Chihuahua

Adam described the Chihuahua as a “soldier of Satan”.

He said that if owners treat the Chihuahua as if it is a large dog like a Great Dane, they can make good pets.
