April 6, 2022

The international canine club recognizes over 360 dog breeds. Of these breeds, several are best suited to various activities or roles. Upon careful review, we have come up with the top 5 breeds that are well suited to ‘family life’. 

Labrador Retriever

The Labrador Retriever is one of the most popular breeds for family and for good reason. They are known to be patient, protective, playful, loving, and reliable. Labs are also highly intelligent and can be trained easily. They are a high-energy breed, love to run around, and boast great strength and stamina. 

Goldendoodle

Goldendoodles are a cross between a Golden retriever and a Poodle. They have a moderate activity level and are smaller in size than their parent breeds. They are highly intelligent and take to training easily if you start early. They may be touted as a hypoallergenic breed as a result of the Poodle in their heritage. 

Golden Retriever

The hallmark of the Golden Retriever is their patience which makes them perfect for children. They are also super smart, confident, loyal, and kind. Neither timid nor aggressive and full of energy to play as well. They are very obedient and affectionate, providing love to all. 

Beagle

The Beagle has a very calm temperament and a small size that allows them to be carried easily. This combination makes them a good choice for a family dog. They are very playful and are right at home in the outdoors. They are also accommodating of other pets and make for a great play partner. 

Bulldog

The Bulldog doesn’t boast a lot of energy but surely makes up for it in the affection department. They have a sturdy build and are very friendly, docile, and loyal. Their small size makes them suited to both small apartments and large houses. 

Conclusion 

Those are the top 5 breeds that Petland can guarantee would fit right into the family. Of course, before eventually settling for one, be sure to get super familiar with the breed.
