Large Sized Dogs and Toddlers
As babies move into the toddler stage they become more mobile, physical and curious which will affect their behaviour towards dogs.
Toddlers are often excitable and like to play and touch new things which can mean a tendency to pull tails and ears, ruffle coats and even poke eyes. Toddlers can try to play with the dogs toys and possessions. With some breeds this behaviour may be tolerated but some dogs can be possessive about their possessions and space.

Some Large Sized Dog Breeds suitable for families with toddlers.

Labrador Retriever -
A kind natured dog not aggressive, intelligent and easy to train learning commands very quickly.
Reliable, trustworthy, calm, friendly, gentle and confident. A very popular dog that is very eager to please you and is always ready to have fun.

Golden Retrievers
This is another breed that has a lot of energy and will want to play for hours on in. Golden retrievers are intelligent, loyal, and with a life span of 10-12 year will be a long time family member.

Standard Poodle
All around the standard poodle is a great dog. With its pleasing attitude, loving disposition, an amazing patience this dog makes a great kids dog.


Large Dog Breeds. (It must be realised that large dogs are capable of knocking over small children, but many large dogs prove to be very patient, long suffering and protective with small children)
