A Small Dog Is Easy to Care For
Small to mid-size breeds such as spaniels and terriers make good family pets and are easy to care for. They can be exercised when you take the baby out for a stroll in his pram, or play in a backyard to run off excess energy.
A Large Dog Can Be a Suitable Pet
A large dog such as a Labrador or setter can be a suitable pet for a family with a baby. The Labrador is known for its friendly temperament and tolerance toward children, and thrives in a family environment with love and attention and a big backyard in which to play.
Large dogs need plenty of exercise and long runs, while a small dog can be taken for a walk whenever you take the baby out for a stroll. Cavalier King Charles spaniels in particular have a mild temperament, enjoy company and are very good-natured with children.
