6 Best dogs for seniors

Choosing a senior dog might be difficult, but it makes life better. As we age, we need to consider our mobility, living space, and lifestyle when choosing a dog, especially a puppy.


Looking for a housedog that prefers snuggling to hiking? Consider pugs. They avoid extreme temperatures and exercise little.

Bichon Frise

This breed is easy to housebreak and train and remains fit with a few short walks. To maintain their lovely coat, they need daily brushing, yet they don't bark.


Greyhounds may be the world's quickest dog, but they're also the calmest, quietest, and simplest to manage.

French Bulldog

'Frenchie' is happiest when giving and receiving affection. However, they overheat in hot settings.

Shih Tzu

Shih Tzus love people and other animals, so if you have grandchildren coming over you can be confident they will be very welcoming to them. They can be a bit stubborn, but they still respond to training without too much resistance.


Poodles crave attention and are funny. Their fur needs frequent brushing, depending on how much fun you want to have with their incredibly shapable hair!
