A Child’s Best Friend

As a dog lover, you’ll know that these furry companions are man’s (and woman’s) best friend. They have all the key features of a BFF, including loyalty, love and lots of energy! But when it comes to choosing the newest addition to your family, there are a lot of things that you should think about, such as how well they’ll get along with the younger members of the family. Today, we’ll take a look at some of the best breeds that’ll be your child’s best friend.


These big dogs may not initially seem like the best choice to have around a baby due to their imposing look, but they’re incredibly patient and caring creatures. A well-trained boxer should be gentle with your children, and will often become particularly protective over them, but they’ll also get stuck in at playtime as they are full of energy!


Dogue de Bordeaux

Also known as a French Mastiff, these intimidating-looking dogs hide a loyal and loving personality underneath their menacing exterior! They’re patient, calm and affectionate, and will treat your family like their own pack, paying particular attention to the ‘pups’! They’re an excellent guard dog as they are, above all, loyal creatures, dedicated to protecting their humans from danger.



This big friendly giant is the perfect addition to your family as they absolutely love kids. They’re known for their good temperament, gentle nature and quiet disposition. These dogs are sociable and will love to play with children in a calm and gentle way. As if all that wasn’t enough to persuade you, Nana, the dog from Peter Pan was a Newfoundland!
