Top 25 Most Popular Family-Friendly Dogs

8. Irish setter


Known for its red coat, the Irish setter is playful, energetic, loves being around people and plays well with children. This doggy needs lots of exercise and is a good match for energetic kids.

A smart and trainable companion, the Irish setter is perfect for people with lots of space but isn't what one would call a good apartment dweller. At 26 inches high and about 65 pounds, the breed may seem small enough for a large apartment, but I'd avoid it unless you're an avid daily jogger.
