Find the best dog breed for your family!
Are you a dog lover? If you’re thinking about adding a dog to the family it’s important to make sure you get one with the right temperament to suit your household. We’ve created a concise list of a few preferred family dogs, read on below…
1. Labrador Retriever
A family favourite, this breed is very loyal and affectionate with a love for children. They are very intelligent and can learn new commands and rules very easily (usually when a food incentive is involved).
They’re delightful, with a heart of gold and patient enough to deal with the most high-spirited of children. Although the Beagle is not always an obvious choice, they’re consistently named in the top five breeds for families with children!
Did someone say Lassie? Everyone’s favourite on screen dog is perfect for families too! You could use their special set of skills to herd your children together when they are running wild around the house!
4. Cocker Spaniel
They LOVE to play! Their good nature and love of children mean that they can become a beloved companion for any family.
Finally, don’t disregard a mixed breed dog! There is a lot to be said for getting all of the best traits of several different breeds all in the one dog! Mixed-breed dogs are, in general, healthier than their purebred cousin which means fewer trips to the vets!
