As many parents have found out the hard way, choosing that puppy in the window based on cuteness alone is never a good move when you have kids. With the hundreds of different breeds available, it's important to pick a family-friendly pup based on temperament, disposition, size and energy level. We've narrowed down the choices based on these criteria to find the 10 best dogs for kids.
Known for its red coat, the Irish setter is playful, energetic, loves being around people and plays well with children. This doggy needs lots of exercise and is a good match for energetic kids.
A smart and trainable companion, the Irish setter is perfect for people with lots of space but isn't what one would call a good apartment dweller. At 26 inches high and about 65 pounds, the breed may seem small enough for a large apartment, but I'd avoid it unless you're an avid daily jogger.
