Top 10 Dog Breeds For Families – Best Dog Breeds For Kids
I am diehard fan of pets, especially dogs, and would like to let your through the 10 best family dogs you may want to choose from to make it a part of your little family. This blog shall give you information on 5 such family dog breeds, and remaining five will be in my upcoming next blog.
Bulldogs have a tough build. They weigh around 50lbs and grow anything from 12” to 16” in height. This can be a perfect family dog for kids who love it the boisterous way. These canines are more comfortable in large houses and apartments. Although, they wouldn’t win the ‘most energetic pet’ award for you, they are definitely loyal and friendly. Of course, these pets get along well with other pets.
Beagles were earlier known as ‘hunting dogs’. They are friendly; they are clever; they are cheerful. Beagles are never tired of playing games with kids in homes, and this makes them best in homes that have active children. They also can get along well with non-canine pets if they are trained well, but mind it, you will have your pets getting chased here and there.
They can be a little of an increased job for you because they do shed. They required recurrent bathing and brushing. These pooches weigh around 22lbs and grow up to 15” in height; they are perfect apartment dogs. You may consider fencing your house before getting a Beagle as it may wander off.
8. Bull Terrier
Bull Terriers are high-spirited pooches that require a lot of time to play with. It is a perfect family dog, especially for big families. Bull Terriers are very protective and affectionate towards their masters. These mutts are well framed and can get along perfectly with those kids who are still in the stage of learning how to treat pets properly.
The standard size of a Bull Terrier is around 22” in height and 65lbs in weight. You can also choose the miniature Bull Terrier, which weighs and grows roughly half the size of the standard one. Even the miniature one requires a lot of exercise and play.
Yes, this one is from the Lassie. Collies are highly predictable; easily trainable; gentle as ever and hardly have the tendency to bite their human family. This breed is perfect for a family that hasn’t had a dog before, or maybe any other pet. The pet goes about 25” high and weighs around 60 pounds.
Long hair that the Collies have means a lot of bathing, grooming, brushing to keep it in tip-top silhouette. If you already have a Collie, make sure you don’t let them herd you kids a lot, even if they do it really well. They have the touch of show-off in them; they love to please their family and masters.
Newfoundland is humble, gentle and kind; it can also be called the “Mother Teresa” among dogs. They love children and are very protective for them. It grows around 27” in height and weighs around 150lbs. If you have a big house and large open spaces to play, Newfoundland is an ideal one for your home and family.
Although this canine is a great swimmer, it does not like being outdoors. It is a large framed dog, but anyone will fall in love with it in no time. It is known to save lives in emergencies.
This will surely help you choose the right family dog for your living space, family and kids. If you haven’t found the right one yet, keep reading my continuation blog on 10 Best Family Dog Breeds – Part 2.
