20 Worst Dog Breeds To Get Along With Kids



16. Weimaraner

There are many great dogs to consider when looking for your next pet. In order to determine the best fit for your family, you must first be realistic about how a dog will affect your children.

It is important to know that many of the dogs considered worst for getting along with kids are often mistrained or not properly cared for.

Getting a dog should be a serious responsibility, one that is never taken lightly. Here is our list of 21 dogs that are not usually right for a family with children:

1. Weimaraner

Because of their size and energy level, Weimaraners are better companions for older children and teenagers than for children under the age of six.

The Weimaraner is an intelligent, thinking animal and while they will tolerate a lot of abuse from children, they are proud, sometimes arrogant creatures. If they are pushed beyond the limit, they will not take it kindly.

When bored, a Weimaraner may become destructive and find their own forms of entertainment. They may bring occasional gifts of dead frogs, birds, cats and other small animals. These gifts must be received by you as presents since punishment could hurt your relationship and cause them to feel unsure and uneasy.

With the Weimaraner’s high level of activity, their love for catching and bringing dead gifts to their family, and their stubbornness at a young age, this breed is not considered the best pet choice when you also have young children.
