Your kids are nagging you to get a dog fir their birthdays? Promising they’ll walk them every day and will never forget to feed them? Well the good news is that if you caved in, we’ve come up with a list of the 10 best family dog breeds!


Whether your family lives in the city or the countryside, in a flat or a house, the perks of adopting a French Bulldog is definitely their size! We understand how easily a home can be crowded when kids are around, so a Frenchie will make it easier for you to adapt. Moreover they are playful, affectionate, and easy going around people so they’ll become your kid’s best friend very quickly!


If you’re looking for a dog that looks like a little angel, and is actually one, the Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier is the one! With their soft, shiny and hypoallergenic fur, they will make the best companion to your family as they thrive for attention and petting sessions on your lap. They are quite active dogs and will love to play with their owners in the garden.


Medium sized, with silky soft ears, an adorable face and cute personality, how could you not want them as your new family member? Cocker Spaniels are an active breed who thrive playing and walking outdoors, their perfect companions if you like going for walks in the forest or parks on Sunday mornings.


They never get out of style, do they. Of course we had to include the adorable Labrador retriever in this list! Though they require a lot of of exercise (and space, let’s face it), Labrador Retrievers are known to be loving, loyal, protective, easy to train and patient. You can’t ask for a kid’s best friend, right?


They come in all sizes and shapes (well maybe not shapes), they’re very smart, caring, and have a very soft fur that all your family will want to pet! Though they’re known to be wary of strangers, they’re a very loyal and loving breed that will be comfortable around babies and children.

Who can resist their cute face? Not us, and probably not you either! Originally bred for hunting, Beagles are full of energy and love to spend time outdoors with their family. Their small to medium size will make them an ideal companion no matter what type of lifestyle you have, and their need for love and attention will help create a magic bond between them and your children.


Now your kids might have never hear of Lassie, but you for sure have, and we’re certain you dreamt of having her as pet when you were young! Time to fulfil this childhood dream of yours, because Collies are actually an amazing breed to have as family member! They love being around children, the outdoors, and on top of that they have a beautiful long mane that your kids will love to brush.


Droopy ears, silky fur, small, and just very cute looking, they will be perfect if you live in the city! Cocker Spaniels are easy going, laid back and social dogs who will love being surrounded by people and other dogs. They adore attention and will love to play indoors or outdoors with their family members.


Don’t judge a book by its cover, nor a dog by its look or breed name! They might not look like the most family friendly dogs, but they are. They will love to watch over children and have a quite a sweet temper. They are quite energetic dogs and will appreciate spending as much time outdoors as possible running or playing with your family.


We know how tempting it is getting a purebred dog, but have you ever considered getting a Mutt? The very first reason you should is because mutts usually combine the best traits of different dog breeds! It’s also a great occasion to teach your children about the importance of personality before looks, as well as empathy! By adopting a mutt, you’re saving their life and freeing a spot for another dog in need! Check your local rescue for more information.
