Robust, loyal and friendly, large-sized dogs can withstand a moderate amount of roughhousing, so they are suitable for families with children. However, many children can be fearful of their towering size, so make sure to choose a big dog with a gentle temperament.
Some of the most popular large-sized dog breeds include the Akita, Bernese Mountain Dog, Borzoi, Boxer, German Shepherd Dog, Golden Retriever, Labrador Retriever, and Rottweiler.
