Before choosing small canine companions for your kids, there are various factors that you should keep in mind such as age of your children and their activity levels. Furthermore, the extent to which your children are willing or able to assume responsibility for the care of dog is also an important factor for choosing a dog for your family. In addition to this, consistent, patient, and often time-consuming training also required, as no puppy is born knowing how to fit into a human family. Here are five options of small canine companions that you can choose for your kids:
The great thing about bulldogs is that they are sturdy; therefore, they can take anything that rambunctious kids throw at them. In addition to this, bulldogs are fine with both small apartments and large houses. However, bulldogs are not very energetic dogs but they are docile, friendly, and a loyal dogs that get along well with other pets and dogs, too.
Initially kept as a hunting dog, a beagle fits quite well in homes with lots of active kids. This dog breed is sturdily built and never too tired to play a game. Friendly, smart, and happy, these dogs usually get along with other pets. However, beagles do shed, therefore, require frequent bathing and brushing.
3.The Bull Terrier
Bull Terriers were actually bred to be companion dogs and they are friendly and loving towards grown-ups and kids alike. They also have a high threshold for pain, which make them perfect for the rambunctious children who are learning how to properly treat the dogs. These dogs can get quite rambunctious and require plenty of playtimes; therefore, they are perfect dogs for large families. This breed of dogs will return your affection by being very protective of your kids.
Pugs are ancient dogs that hail from China. They are outgoing, playful, trustworthy and loyal; therefore, it is tough to go wrong with pugs as family pet. These pups were bred to be with people, as well as other pets which make them an ideal choice for kids. The flat and wrinkly muzzle of pugs gives them distinctive appearance, but it also makes these dogs prone to various respiratory problems, especially in the extreme weather conditions. Make sure to keep your pug out of severe hot and cold temperatures.
Yorkshire terriers are the perfect option of those families who have tons of extra energy to spend playing with them. These tiny dogs are both highly intelligent and active (not to mention incredibly cute). Yorkshire terriers look like toys, but sometimes they can be fairly aggressive when they play, so make sure that you are up for the challenge. These pooches were bred to herd animals and this instinct makes these dogs very friendly and social. This instinct gives them a tendency to be a bit nippy; however, this behaviour can be controlled through training that includes techniques based on positive reinforcement.
