The Best Dogs For Young Children
I’ve always been a dog person and I can’t remember any time in my life where I did not have at least one furry friend as a companion. Dogs are great companions but they do need looking after so if your child utters the words “Mom, I want a dog please” you must know that if you agree, you and your child must be responsible and consistent once the new puppy arrives.
If you and your family do decide to get a dog, you are faced with deciding which breed is suited best for your child. Of course you want the child to be able to play with the dog without worrying that the dog may pose a danger or show aggression.
So which breed do you choose to best suit your family, from a huge variety of breeds?
Here’s our list of Top 15 dog breeds best suited for children:
The Bulldog is a gentle and loving breed yet they can still make a great guard dog. They often used as a mascot for college and school sports teams – including Yale. The average weight of a bulldog is 50-55 pounds and has an average height of 12-16 inches.
One minor hitch of this breed is that it can snore pretty loudly.
This very popular breed is a great companion for your child. Golden Retrievers are kind, intelligent and they really love playing with children.
They are very energetic and respond very well to training.
They do however love to chew so your kids will need to be prepared to lose a few toys along the way.
Another very popular family dog breed – Labradors are very friendly and known for their peaceful temperament. Very smart and affectionate to their owners, these dogs are very trainable and can play very well with children.
These dogs do shed a lot of hair.
4. Bichon Frise
Bichon Frise puppies resemble little puffballs. They are a lot of fun and they absolutely love being around children. They have an enormous amount of energy and their average weight is between 10-18 pounds.
These dogs don’t shed a lot of hair, they do however require a lot of grooming.
Poodles are loyal, playful and very intelligent dogs. They are very easy to train and love spending time with their owners.
They are lots of fun and love to do fun tricks.
If you or your child is allergy sufferers, this breed barely sheds any hair.
Certainly my favourite breed – as I’ve been an owner of one for 12 years. Sometimes known as doxies or weiner dogs – these little ones have a spunky personality. Daschunds are extremely loyal to family members but can sometimes be unfriendly towards strangers – we call it “small-man syndrome”
The wire-breed sheds minimal hair and they don’t need much grooming.
