Which Dog Breed Is Best for Your Family?
Golden Retriever

Golden Retrievers are great dogs for families because they have a significant degree of patience and are very friendly. They have a lot of energy, so the ideal environment for them would be one where the family is active or has room for the golden retriever to play outside safely. The affectionate and non-aggressive nature of this breed is likely why they are an iconic family breed!
Labrador Retriever

According to the American Kennel Club, Labrador Retrievers are among the most popular dogs for families. There is a recognized notion that the younger the child or children are, the larger your dog should be. If your family is active, then a Labrador Retriever could be ideal for your lifestyle and could be, most likely, brought along the way!

Spaniels are high-energy and can be great for suburban life! They’re low-maintenance for grooming, and a Spaniel could be a great companion for an only child or children, in general. Smaller dogs are sometimes great for families that have children under the age of six years old.
Pembroke Welsh Corgi

A Pembroke Welsh Corgi is a great dog for a family that loves togetherness and requires good temperament around children. They’re loyal dogs and will watch over the family they protect. Corgis are known for their “big bark,” although they are smaller dogs, which could make them the perfect match for a family that lives in more of a city living environment.
