The Best Dog Breeds for Seniors

Tuesday, November 17, 2015
posted by Jim Murphy

seniordogStudies have shown that having a pet in your senior years, can ease loneliness and alleviate  anxiety and boredom. Pets provide seniors with lots of love and affection.  When you select a dog for a senior, you must consider size and temperament. Typically smaller dogs are better. If the pet becomes ill, they are easier to transport than a larger dog. Also remember that even small dogs can have an aggressive personality. Listed below are dog breeds that are best suited for seniors.

  1. Pug
  2. Schnauzer
  3. Scottish Terrier
  4. Shih Tzu
  5. Yorkshire Terrier
  6. Cocker Spaniel
  7. Welsh Corgi
  8. American Eskimo
  9. Boston Terrier
  10. Chihuahua

Dogs are rated on their size and temperament.
