7 Best Dog Breeds for Families

The Bichon Frise is a great little dog for a family

Bichon Frise

Gentle, sociable, and playful, the Bichon Frise is an ideal dog for families and children.

The Bichon Frise can live in an apartment, but should not be left unsupervised for more than six hours. In addition, this breed of dog can be noisy, which could potentially be a problem for you… or your neighbors!

Finally, this dog may require more maintenance to prevent tangles and to keep its coat white. That said, if you or your children suffer from allergies, the Bichon Frise is a hypoallergenic, non-shedding dog breed.
