If you have a family with kids - big or small - and you're considering getting a dog, this one is for you! Here are the top 5 dog breeds for families with kids.
1. Labrador Retriever
The Lab has remained the most popular dog breed for years now. They love kids, humans, and other pets. They are friendly and sweet, and they are extremely active which makes them great for a family with kids!
If you and your family are used to a more laid back way of life, a bulldog may be just right for you. They are much less active than a dog like a Lab, other than regular walks. They are chill and love to sleep, however, they are prone to over heating easily if you live in a warm climate.
3. Golden Retriever
Like the Labrador Retriever, these dogs have a reputation for being friendly and loving, and they are great with kids. They require a lot of activity, which can be great for kids as well.
Beagles are pack dogs, which means they love being around others and don't like to be alone much. They are friendly and lovable, which makes them great for kids. They are known to be daring if they catch a scent they want to follow, so they do need supervision, which can also be a great learning tool for kids.
Like the bulldog, pugs are a laid back breed who love to eat and sleep. You do have to pay attention to their diets and activity so they don't get over weight. They do love playing with kids, but will also enjoy staying in and cuddling!
What About The Jack Russell?
JRTs are not especially known for their friendliness with kids, but there are many exceptions! As with any other dog, it mostly depends on how they are raised and how well they are trained. Many of them are just as loving and sweet as these top five dogs!
