Top 5 Easy Going Dog Breeds


Depending on the lifestyle you lead, or want to lead, including a dog could be tricky.  There are many reasons why a laid back, easy going dog breed may be best for your family, household, living situation, among other factors.  Every dog will have its own temperament regardless of their breed, but some breeds are more well known to have certain traits, or lack thereof.

A particular environment, training used, upbringing, and owner behaviors will contribute to the easy going nature of the dog you’ve chosen to include in your life, but there are a few breeds that are better suited than others to an easy going lifestyle.
