Top 7 Best Dog Breeds for Beginners


I love dogs. I’ve loved them since I was a little kid. But the truth is that not all dogs are right for everyone. If you’re a first-time dog owner who’s looking to welcome your first pup into your home, then there are some breeds that are more suited to newbies than others. Here’s my list of seven dog breeds for beginners:

1. Labradoodle

  • Labradoodle

Why it’s a good fit for first-time owners: A hybrid between a Labrador Retriever and a poodle, labs are incredibly intelligent, easy to train and incredibly friendly. They’re great with kids and other pets — they just want to love everyone! Labradoodles are known for their low-maintenance coats that don’t need much grooming or clipping (although you should still brush them regularly).

Labrador Retrievers have been one of the most popular breeds since the 1930s, making them perfect for first-time owners looking for an affectionate, happy companion who is also good with other animals. The labrador retriever has been around since Newfoundland fishermen bred their dogs with those used by British gamekeepers to help retrieve waterfowl downed during hunts on large estates nearby. These dogs were initially known as St John’s water dogs because they performed such tasks so well but later became more commonly referred to as Labrador retrievers after Labrador City in Canada where many of these dogs were bred from then onwards until today

2. Greyhound

Another great choice for first-time owners is the Greyhound. This breed is known for its gentle nature and calm disposition, making it ideal for people who have never had a dog before. They are also easy to train, making them a good choice for first time dog owners.

Greyhounds are known to be great with children, which makes them perfect family pets. They do need space so apartment living might not work out too well but if you have some land where your greyhound can run free then this is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a new pet!

3. Chihuahua

The Chihuahua is another small dog that would be great for first-time owners. They’re very loyal, affectionate and protective of their family. They can be good with children and other pets as long as they get along with them. The only downside about owning a chihuahua is that they need to be brushed often due to their short coat.

4. English Bulldog

If you are new to dog ownership and have never had a dog before, an English Bulldog might be the best choice for you.

English Bulldogs are affectionate and loyal dogs that love to play with children. They are also very protective of their owners, which makes them excellent family pets. They will happily spend time with kids who want to wrestle or play fetch with them while they wait patiently for their turn on the couch or bed!

English Bulldogs do not bark much but will let you know when someone is at the door by howling or whining loudly in anticipation of going out for a walk together!

A well-trained English Bulldog can be potty trained easily using positive reinforcement methods such as treats and praise during training sessions. A housetrained adult male weighs about 40 pounds (18 kg) while females weigh about 35 pounds (16 kg).

5. French Bulldog

The French Bulldog is one of the best small dog breeds for first-time owners. This breed is known for being loyal, affectionate, and easy to train. They are also good with children and other pets and make great apartment dogs due to their small size (they don’t need much space). If you’re interested in adopting a cat or other small animal, look no further; the French Bulldog will get along well with them too!

6. Pomeranian

The Pomeranian is a small, fluffy dog that makes an ideal companion for kids and other dogs. They’re very intelligent, affectionate and loyal to their family. However, they also have a high energy level due to their need for attention and exercise.

Poms are easy to train but can be yappy at times when they get bored or excited—especially if you don’t have time to play with them every day (which is why this breed isn’t ideal for apartment living). So if you do plan on adopting one of these energetic little furballs, it’s best if both you and your family members are willing to commit yourselves fully to making sure that your new pup gets the exercise he needs each day!

7. Yorkie Poo

The Yorkie Poo is a cross between the Yorkshire Terrier and the Poodle. It has a long, wavy coat that can come in almost any color.

The Yorkie Poo is good for first-time owners because it is small and easy to manage. This breed also gets along well with children and other pets, making them ideal companions for families with kids or other animals.

When you’re ready for a dog but you’re not sure what breed to get, these are your best choices.

If you’re ready to add a dog to your family but aren’t so sure what breed would be best, these are your best bets. They’re loyal, friendly and good for first-time owners.

They’re also easy to train, affordable and tend to be healthy because they’re popular breeds that don’t require extensive genetic testing. Here are seven of the top dogs for beginners:

  • American Pit Bull Terrier: A medium-sized breed with short hair that comes in many colors plus brindle (striped). The pit bull terrier is known for being loyal and affectionate and typically gets along well with other animals as well as people—though some may be wary of strangers at first. This dog does best with a lot of exercise; yard space is ideal if you live in an apartment building or condo unit where pets are allowed but not recommended by management companies due to safety concerns over territory issues between neighbors’ pets since pit bulls can be territorial sometimes when not properly trained early on in life.”


Like we said before, there is no one perfect dog. Every owner and every dog are different, but these breeds are some of the best choices for first-time owners. They all have great temperaments that make them easy to train and treat their owners with love and affection. They also make great companions who will never leave your side or get bored with just hanging out with you!
