These Are the Worst Dog Breeds for Families

Border Collie

Border Collies are very smart dogs and can be great family pets if they are raised properly with children. However, if they are not used to being around kids, trained well, and watched carefully

Siberian Husky

I really love Siberian Huskies. They're amazing dogs and great for families with older kids. However, you should be careful with them around babies and small children.


Akitas are great protectors and are known for being loyal and noble. They are excellent guard dogs and look impressive. However, they are large, have strong jaws, and a strong grip. They are also quite calm and don't always show their intentions clearly.

Australian Cattle Dog

The Australian Cattle Dog, also called the Blue Heeler, is very hardworking and energetic. It has a strong instinct to herd animals. This breed is confident and doesn't usually back down

Chow Chow

Chow Chows are large, striking dogs with very strong jaws. They were originally bred to hunt and catch prey. Often called the "puffy lion dog," they are a powerful and big breed from China.

Alaskan Malamute

The Alaskan Malamute is a big, strong, and beautiful dog. It can weigh up to 100 pounds. These dogs are known for being loyal, brave, and playful.


Dalmatians are famous as firehouse dogs and often seen with fire engines. They are loved for their beautiful spots and great qualities. Dalmatians can be very sweet and amazing pets.


Rottweilers are often seen as one of the worst dogs to have around children. Even though they can be great family pets and are very loyal, they can sometimes attack and bite without much warning.
