Top 15 friendliest dog breeds

15 of the most friendly dog-breeds

When it comes to choosing a furry companion, you need to make sure that the dog breed is a good match for you.

As well as looking at activity preferences, other important considerations are a dog’s friendliness and sociability. And of course how that fits into your life and preferences.

Does that mean some dog breeds aren’t friendly?

Are some dog breeds not friendly?If your favourite dog breed doesn’t make the list, then don’t be discouraged. Not making the list doesn’t automatically mean a dog is unfriendly.

Since their domestication, it’s fair to consider dogs as friendly animals. However, some breeds can be considered a little more sociable than other breeds. 

For example, Chow Chows are often considered more aloof and independent, and although Basenji’s adore their humans they have very little time for people they don’t know.
