Favorite Family Dog Breeds

At the veterinary office as a nurse I saw a lot of great variety of dog breeds! I want to go over my top three favorite dog breeds for families!

I think it's important for a family to really investigate the kind of dog they adopt.

Not all dogs are good with children.

Some dog breeds will be more prone to dealing with children poking and tugging at them without getting agitated and wanting to bite.

1. The Labrador Retriever

  • Loyal
  • America's most popular dog breed yet again this year!
  • This breed is your everything. They can be a hunter, work-out buddy, swimmer, couch potato, you name it they do it. 
  • Mostly perfect temperament at the veterinary except for the occasional attempt at fleeing. 

2. The Golden Retriever

  • Number 1 Family favorite breed.
  • Loving with children.
  • Beautiful long coat (Requires more grooming than a Labrador Retriever.)
  • Completely trusting even of their veterinarian friends.

3. Shih Tzu

  • A great small package for a family wanting a toy breed dog.
  • A popular choice with minimal behavior problems.
  • Angel at the vet (Varies between pet).
  • Requires monthly trips to the groomer's.

Check back for my least favorite breeds for various reasons. ;-)

Remember each dog is unique! Not all dogs fit breed standards and with adequate socialization and obedience training you can overcome almost any obstacle.
