Good Dogs For Kids

Over the last few years I’ve had the chance to interact with many different dog breeds and have found there are many different breeds that I would consider good dogs for kids.  In fact, a couple years ago I was so interested in dogs good with children I wrote a two part article about the top 10 dogs good with children based on information gathered from the internet and my own opinion.

Since then I’ve received many comments on the article suggesting other breeds be included in my top 10 list.  I definitely agree that dogs that are good with children shouldn’t be narrowed to only a list of 10 dog breeds.   However, that is the main reason why I wrote the article and left the comment section open to our readers.  I wanted our readers input on their experiences with dogs and their thoughts on what dog are good with children.

Good Dogs For Kids

Some might think a giant breed dog might not be good for kids.  After all a giant breed might be clumsy and knock over children or might get overly excited and play to rough possibly hurting kids.

A couple days ago I came across this video of a Great Dane playing with a very young child.  Take a look:

Maybe I should include the Great Dane as one of my top 10 family dogs!  That is an adorable video and I love seeing how gentle a dog as large as a Great Dane can be with a young child.

What do you think?  Have you found the perfect dog for your family?  What dog breeds would you consider good dogs for kids?
