What Kind of Dog Is Right for Your Family?

Golden Retriever and Labrador Retriever

Why It's a Winner

So many people gravitate to these friendly dogs that the American Kennel Club ranks them as the two most popular breeds. They can be great for infants because they're soft-mouthed and gentle. Plus, they're usually not bothered by noise or crying.

Special Care

These breeds need plenty of space to play and lots of exercise, making them an excellent match for athletic families.

Word of Caution

Retrievers love to chew on objects, although early training usually prevents that problem. The high demand for these breeds can make it tough to find a healthy retriever with a good temperament.
