1. Labrador Retriever

These dogs are great for families because they’re gentle and friendly. They’re also easy to train and very intelligent as well as being solid, sturdy animals.

What’s so important about them being sturdy? It’s what makes them great with kids. Not only do they have a lot of understanding towards young children, even when the kids are aggressive, but they can also take some of the punishment that small children can dish out.

They are incredibly loyal dogs, which means that they can help to keep your family safe, even if they are not really considered to be watch dogs. If you have a big home and a sensible sized yard and you are looking for the perfect family dog to grow old with your kids, a Labrador retriever is a great idea.
