Challenge #318 - My first dog

A solution to last week’s challenge can be found hereimage_dogchallenge.jpg

 

John has decided that it's time to adopt a dog. However, he has never owned a pet before. He is having trouble deciding on which furry friend would be best.

 

Your challenge is to help John make a choice.

You will use three datasets that contain all the information needed for the research.
The ranking for each criterion goes from 1 (low/not good) to 5 (high/excellent).

 

John wants a dog that would suit his lifestyle best, and here are the most important criteria.
A small dog that will adapt easily to living in an apartment and doesn't bark too much, as neighbors would complain if barking is excessive. Since John is a novice owner, the dog needs to be easy to train and friendly with strangers.

 

Use these five criteria to select three dogs. Then create a report showing your findings and help John make his decision.

Fun challenge this week! My selected breeds look slightly different, but I'm comfortable with my answer.

John needs to move to a house with a yard.

I ended up with one different breed.

I'm a little rusty with the chart tool. Is there way to transpose the data and use the column names as the colors instead of adding individual layers for each?
