We are looking to help families find the best dogs for their liking and needs. We referenced PetMD, there are 10 Best Dogs for Kids and Families. To help determine which dogs is best suitable for your particular family, they asked Dr.Holly Putnam, a DVM and former board member for the Association of Shelter Veterinarians. She suggested that we must need to consider the size and our family's lifestyle and the energy level so that we know the best dog that fits us.

Here are the top 10 Family Dogs:
