Top 8 Dog Breeds For Your Family

By JennaDrady. | Dog Info

Dogs are awesome, let's face it. Big dogs, small dogs, short dogs, long dogs. Dogs of any breed, any color or any age. That being said, there are still certain dog breeds that could best fit your lifestyle. While there are numerous breeds that could work for your family, today, I would like to go over my top 8.


So many factors come into play when choosing the right dog or dog breed for you. Things like temperament, energy level, size, and age. Take into consideration if your family is an outdoorsy, active bunch, or more of a movie night, homebody bunch. This list is just a guide to only 8 of the many breeds out there that could be perfect for your family.  

1. Border Collie

 Collies tend to be quite smart and easily trainable as they are very eager to learn. They have a great temperament and would be a good child-friendly dog.  

2. Beagle

 These dogs are very playful. And so are your kids... a potentially perfect fit. They are small to medium size but can be stubborn at times. Beagles make great companions

3. Boston Terrier

 Also known as "the American gentleman" for a reason. These are intelligent small dogs but can be a bit quirky. They have a great energy level and enjoy having little ones to play with. 

4. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

 This breed thrives on attention and loads of snuggles. They are known to form close bonds with their owners. So if you're looking for a dog who will never get tired of those constant belly rubs, this may be your match! 

5. Golden Retriever

 Being one of the most popular breeds in the U.S this dog has always and will always be known as one of the best family dogs. Great temper, easily trainable, loves to play and all the attention he can get. This breed loves activity so go outside, throw a ball, and let him be social with your whole family. 

6. Bull Dog

 These dogs have great patience and love the attention of children. They are not generally a high energy breed, so if you're looking for a cuddle buddy for movie night, Bulldog is the way to go. 

7. Newfoundland

 This pooch might be massive, but he is a gentle giant. Great temperament and known to be very docile. They are a patient dog and fun loving too! 

8. Boxer

 This guy has some energy to burn. If you like hikes or frequent trips to the dog park, a boxer may be right for you. These beauties have a clownish personality and are fun loving at all costs. With a sweet disposition and high energy playfulness, these dogs are extremely fun to have around.  

Which dog breed would be right for you, and why?

The best evaluations of our products come from the people who’ve bought them.

So So

The concept is a good one, however there is room for design improvement. The little tabs didn't work AT ALL in my 2008 Subaru Outback. However, even if they did work I then would not be able to roll the windows up and down as needed. For me that is not an option. I haven't yet tried using the Velcro attachments since my husband is not convinced it's a good idea to attach something like that to the door panel. With all that being said the product itself looks good, and the concept is a great one. When my puppy gets bigger I will try the Velcro when my husband isn't watching.:)

Great Protection

I think this seat cover is going to work out just fine. It fits well, was extremely easy to install. Just waiting for my new puppy to be old enough to bring home.

Seat cover just received

It would be nice to be able to actually get some use out of it before I can honestly review the product. I will say that so far my experience with 4Knines has been wonderful. Their customer service is great.

Great Cover

I been getting these covers for many years and have never been disappointed with them great quality and well made something you don't see very much anymore !

If you have dogs, and love your car, this is a must buy!

I recently purchased the Cargo Cover to protect my new Subaru Outback. My dogs love car rides, but they're also shedding dogs and make a mess. The Cargo Cover took a brief 30 seconds to install and provides protection against dirt, scratches, hair, dander. It's super easy to clean-up too!

Ryan Bracken

Great Product!

XL cargo liner fit my GMC Yukon Denali perfectly. While our 20 lb dog doesn't put much stress on the liner, it works great keeping the back clean from carrying our often muddy recumbent bicycles around. Top notch product, fast delivery. Thanks!

Leon Campbell

Great products. We are return customers.

Bought the bench cover and side panels for our Nissan Pathfinder. Looks great. We have the same set up in our Titan truck and couldn't be happier with the protection it gives to our leather interior. Highly recommend. Shipping was super fast!!!

Marchelle Jones

Super nice

I purchased seat covers for my Ford F-350 and my Ford Edge - really nice fit and I have piece of mind knowing my seats are protected!
