Owning a dog is one of the most rewarding experiences in the world and this is particularly true when we reach our golden years. Apart from having a positive impact on our health and lowering our risk of several illnesses, man’s best friend also keeps loneliness at bay and showers us with unconditional love. What’s more, being a proud dog owner intensifies our sense of purpose and makes us leave the house even when we really don’t feel like getting out of bed.

Here’s a list of 21 best companion dogs for seniors:

1. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

There are many reasons why the Cavalier King Charles spaniel is one of the best dog breeds for elderly ladies and gentlemen, including their small size, affectionate nature and willingness to please.
Though these pups are super friendly, they are also naturally well-behaved, which means that their owners won’t have any trouble training and socializing them. Additionally, Cavaliers really love their people and want nothing more in the world than to spend time with them.
Since they are not the best breed for working people, these toy dogs are perfect for seniors who have enough time to dedicate to their pets. Moreover, Cavaliers are not the most active of dogs and don’t need to run around the yard all day – they do, however, need a daily walk, but that’s also something that will help seniors stay healthy and active.
