What Makes a Good Family Dog?

Most dog owners consider their dog as a part of their own family. Adopting a dog into your home is a decision that should not be taken without careful consideration. 

Before choosing a dog that best suits your family, you should ensure that they will be well suited to your family both in their personality, and care requirements. 

An ideal family dog should act calmly towards any young children in your home. On top of this, you should consider choosing a dog breed that is trainable, loving, and intelligent. 

If you have a family member with mild to moderate pet allergies, it is essential that you choose a hypoallergenic breed. Most Cavoodles and Moodles are non-shedding. Hypoallergenic breeds also come with the added benefit of being lower maintenance due to their non shedding coat - which means less cleaning up after them!
