8 Affectionate Dog Breeds
Irish Setters are high energy sporting dogs that make excellent companion animals. Their outgoing, clown-like and stable personalities make them a favorite with families as well, according to the AKC. Their long, glossy coats, however, do require regular grooming to prevent mats.

Because Cavaliers are so small, they’re easily able to adapt to city and living and are also revered for their trainability. According to the AKC, they are trustworthy companions for children and thrive as a part of a family.
