The 10 Most Cat Friendly Dog Breeds

Do you already have a feline but want to add a canine companion to your household? These breeds are generally known for being good with cats. However, remember these are just generalizations and there are exceptions to every rule. Be sure you take care and properly (slowly) introduce your dog and cat. Contacting a dog trainer for help can make the introduction safer.

#1 – Golden Retriever

The Golden is just a nice, all-around dog that gets along with everything. He should be fine with any cats you have in the house.

#2 – Bichon Frisé

He is known throughout the dog world for his happy-go-lucky personality. Truly, this breeds seem to love everyone and everything, so a cat shouldn’t be a problem.

#3 –  Labrador Retriever

Like the Golden, the Lab makes a great all-around pet and is usually fine with cats. As long as he doesn’t think he needs to retrieve the cat for you (most cats wouldn’t appreciate a ride in a dog’s mouth, no matter how “soft” his bite is), they should get along great.
