Top 5 Best Dog Breeds for Kids
5. The Mastiff is very calm with children and is another kid-friendly dog. Generally good-natured, the Mastiff loves being around people. Very protective, the Mastiff will tackle an intruder to the ground and lay on them until help arrives. One of the most ancient types of dog breeds, the Mastiff is known as the largest dog in the world. Mastiffs can weigh as much as 220 pounds. An owner should know that Mastiffs are completely docile, even though their size can be quite intimidating. If you are looking for a big, cuddly lap dog, the Mastiff may be right for your family. The only problem about his size is that he could inadvertently knock over a small child when he bumps into him; the Mastiff is also simply too large for living in an apartment. Nevertheless, a Mastiff will be a happy addition to your family.
6. The Bull Terrier is intelligent and full of spunk and is another breed that is great with children. The great thing about Bull Terriers is that they remain calm while children handle them and take roughhousing in stride. As they need a lot of playtime, children are sure to enjoy trying to wear them out. Bull Terriers have a great spirit and are packed with charm and loyalty. Slightly mischievous, the Bull Terrier is kind-natured, loving and devoted to its family.
