Dog breeds worksheets
These are picture and vocabulary matching worksheets containing common dog breeds. You can use them in lessons about pets or animals. Each worksheet has different artwork and dog breeds so be sure to scroll through them all and find the best one for your class.
For advanced learners, you can go on to talk about the nature of each breed and what kind of person owns them. You could also practise comparatives and superlatives with the breeds. For example, a Rottweiler is more dangerous than a Poodle, Chihuahuas are the smallest, etc. Finally, ask the students which animal they’d prefer as a pet and why.
