Although dogs are known as “man’s best friends”, It’s such a drag to deal with some breeds.
So don’t hurry and take your time when you’re looking to add a family pet.
1- French Bulldog
French Bulldog may be playful dogs, but that doesn’t mean they’re the best choice for families with little kids. Without training, I’ll be more likely that they become aggressive. You need to be firm and authoritative to keep them well behaved.
The film 101 Dalmatians surely made lots of people want to buy this Dog Breed. But these dogs need a lot of time invested in them so as to meet their needs. If not, they would have some behavioral problems.
Chihuahuas do have a small size. But that doesn’t mean they’re manageable. It’s pretty tough to train them, since they’re known to be very stubborn. And whenever they’re jealous around children, they tend to be very aggressive.
4- Saint Bernard
Kids sure love Saint Bernard dogs, due to their playful and gentle nature. However, there’s a chance these dogs would hurt them by accident, just because of their playfulness.
Their name says it all. They’re half wolves half dogs. So it’s obvious that they have wild instincts that are hard to predict. Therefore, It’s not really a good idea to add them as family pets, especially if you have young kids.
6- Dogo Argentino
It’s very tough to train these dogs. Therefore, they’ve been banned from many countries, because of their aggressive tendencies. They have a defiant nature, and even if you manage to train them, that’s sometimes not enough.
7- Yorkshire Terrier
Yorkshire Terriers sure are small and fluffy dogs. And that’s what leads to parents thinking they’re perfect pets for kids. However, kids may accidentally harm them, due to their fragility.
8- Jack Russell Terrier
Jack Russell Terriers are not your typical cuddly dogs, despite the fact that they’re fun-sized. They’re known for their short temper, in addition to their excessive energy. So if you have children, it’s best not to buy this dog for them.
9- Standard Schnauzer
When he’s around other dogs, the Standard Schnauzer tends to be quite aggressive. To manage him easily, he should be trained from a young age. This breed has a dominant nature, which causes lots of problems.
Newfoundland dogs can be accidentally harmful around children, despite their gentleness. Why? That’s because of their large size, to the point where some adults themselves struggle to handle them.
11- English Foxhound
The English Foxhound dogs are naturally very active, which makes them ones of the most difficult breeds. Hunting is what they do best, and so they’d rather run around in open fields, looking for preys. They can be very aggressive if they don’t have the chance to be free in the fields.
12- Finnish Spitz
The Finnish Spitz are attractive fox-like breeds. They’re very shy around strangers, whether they’re humans or animals like them. Whenever they feel threatened, they attack on instinct quickly. Keep in mind that they also suffer from separation anxiety.
English Foxhounds are not the only hunting dogs out there, but the Kangal too! They’re strong enough to fight wolves and bears. How interesting, isn’t it? But that doesn’t mean they’re not gentle around children. Stay with them just in case your kids won’t get hurt.
Akita dogs are really powerful, in addition to their large size. They need lots of attention, since they were traditionally bred to be solitary working dogs.They sometimes are uncomfortable around other people, so make sure to note that down, so as not to be surprised when that happens.
15- American Bandogge Mastiff
American Bandogge Mastiff are very strong and tough. They’re a mix between American Pit Bull Terrier and Neapolitan Mastiff, which explains their strength. They can become fearsome and quite aggressive because of their muscular builds.
