How many of us have asked for a puppy when we were little? However, we must be aware that not all dogs adapt in the same way to children. Although it is true that with good training, no dog should have any problems when it comes to coexisting with the noise, nervousness or surprises that come with being with a child daily, there are some breeds that get along better with the little ones in the house than others.

Find out, below, which dog breeds are recommended for families!

Labrador Retriever: Dogs of this breed are affectionate, energetic and sociable by nature. Their ability to adapt is admirable, which makes them perfect to share a home with children or other pets. Even so, it is a dog that requires a lot of attention and space, so it is not a good alternative for families with many obligations and little free time.


Beagle: Many families choose them for their sweet appearance, but they are also very affectionate and friendly dogs. It is a perfect breed for families with active and very active children, since sport is fundamental for these hunting dogs that will not hesitate to bring some "prey" to their owner from time to time.


Golden Retriever: With their unmistakable blond coat, this breed is an excellent choice for families with children. They are affectionate, loyal and patient but very active dogs, so they need daily exercise to avoid destructive behavior and overweight, they are very greedy dogs!


Bichon Frise: In general, this is a breed that loves attention and family life. They are extremely affectionate, happy and active dogs, who love to join their families on all outings, although they can be left alone from time to time and will hardly make any mischief. They are dogs that socialize quite well and are at ease in the company of children or other dogs.


Vizsla: The Vizsla is a dog that can easily adapt to any situation. They are sweet, faithful and very attached to their owners, so much so that they are often called "velcro Vizslas". Even with their need for exercise, since they are hunting dogs and have a very athletic build, they get along very well with children and other dogs. This breed will probably be better off with a family that is home-loving or does not travel frequently.


Cavalier King Charles Spaniel: These dogs have a very affectionate character that allows them to adapt perfectly to families. They are great partners for families with children and for all those who do not want to have to take long walks every day, as it is a rather sedentary breed.


Irish Setter: Setters are the funniest rogues in the canine world. They are playful, intelligent dogs with a great sense of mischief. They are considered extroverted and pleasant dogs, however, it is necessary to make a good exercise of presentation if they are going to have to live with smaller pets since they have a great hunting instinct. It is a perfect breed for families who like to go out for long walks and sports.


French Bulldog: These dogs are quite calm and lazy, so they usually have a good relationship with children, especially if they are not too nervous. In addition, their small size makes them perfect dogs to live in smaller houses without too much space, but they don't like to climb stairs!


Collie: They are very attentive, active and energetic animals and, of course, they are one of the most loyal, loving, intelligent and faithful breeds. The biggest problem they have is that they can become hyperactive if they do not get the necessary exercise, therefore, they are perfect dogs for very active families who like to do sports and take long walks.


Schnauzer: Affectionate and friendly, Schnauzers are dogs that integrate very well in the family, as they are characterized by being very playful. They are dogs that are always alert and warn of any potential danger with a pronounced bark. They adapt to any type of space and can coexist perfectly with children and elderly people. Among their character traits, stubbornness also stands out, which is why it is very important for them to learn certain educational and behavioral guidelines from the time they are puppies.

Love it! I think Bulldogs are the best for kids, they are very active and not too big, so the kids can play with them all the time! I have 2 bulldogs with my 2 kids and they are like best friends.
