At first glance, dogs may appear to be ferocious creatures that are a bit intimidating. Of course, this may not be true for tiny puppers, but bigger dogs generally give the impression of fearfulness because of their sheer size. According to research though, there are some breeds of big dogs that are actually perfect as family pets who will prove to be loving members of your family and stand guard over their hoomans to protect them from any potential harm.
Before getting a big dog breed, it is important to know which breeds will fit best with your family. Some big doggos may be a bit on edge around small children and may prove to be a bit overprotective. The same is true for some smaller breeds so size won’t really be the ideal marker of which dog will fit best with your family. You need a dog that does not end up being aggressive around your kids and is gentle and loving towards them as they grow up.
When done right though, the bond between a doggo and your kids can be a very strong one, full of love and companionship. There are many benefits of raising your children with a pet, such as learning to be more responsible, loving, compassionate, and more active. Kids will love playing with their furry friends and this will not only keep them entertained but will get in good exercise for both your doggo and your kid.
