Five breeds that are always ready for a snuggle!

dog sitting, pet sittingI’m sure that most dog owners will claim that their dog is always ready for a cuddle and  as Josh Billings said; it would certainly seem that a dog “is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself”.

Top of the list probably has to be the Labrador retriever – being one of the most popular breeds in the world it is no surprise that they are also one of the most affectionate.   They make exceptionally good family pets that are capable of building very strong bonds with their human family.

The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel must surely be high on the list of canine cuddlers.  Bred as lap dogs, they relish being in close contact with their owners and are at their happiest when curled up on the sofa with you.  Happy and outgoing little dogs, they are usually friendly with everyone and their tails never seem to stop wagging!

But, once tired out, they love nothing more than sofa surfing with their owners.
