Best Dogs For Children



How do you know what are the best dogs for children? Look for breeds of dogs with a good temperament. This is essential around children. Many kids are bitten by dogs because of their exuberant behavior. However, keep in mind any dog can make a good pet and every dog can be a bitter.

Some of the best dogs for children are:

Collies
We have owned Collies for almost 30 years and have never found one to be nasty or aggressive. These are wonderful dogs for children. They are large enough to handle a child's rough play and patient enough for crawling on or hair pulling.

Always gentle and loving, the Collie is watchful of kids and protective so you don't have to worry about anyone coming into your yard that isn't supposed to be there.

They do require a lot of grooming but the satisfaction of having a great, well rounded pet for you and your family is worth the effort.

Labrador Retriever
This dog is the most popular in the U.S. And if you have ever had experience with them you know why. Again, size of Labs makes it a great dog for kids. They are happy to be around their family and love to be in the family unit. You will find Labs sleeping near the kids when they go down for their naps or romping with them in the yard.

Grooming for these dogs is a snap. Just give a weekly once over with the brush and they're happy.
