2. Labrador Retriever
If you’re looking for a dog which you can wrap your arms around and which fills your couch, a retriever is a perfect match. However, as Labs are a part of the AKC’s Sporting Group, it means that you’ll have to invest time with the pup in order to keep it well exercised. They were bred to work with humans which make them an ideal companion, however, they have an additional burst of energy which calls for their need of exercise.
This is another toy breed which makes them excellent lap dogs. They are ideal for people who like keeping multiple pets, as they get along with not just other dogs but cats as well. Since they shed very little hair, these happy dogs can give blissful happiness to someone allergic to dogs.
Stated as one of the most lovable dog by PetMD’s list, this happy and playful pup only aims to please. Known for its affectionate nature, it gets along well with kids as well as anyother pets you might own. However, you need to spend a lot of time with them as they are bred to stay with humans.
5. Golden Retriever
Although this breed needs a lot of exercising as well as fur maintenance, this dog makes an excellent companion. It gets along with kids and its shiny fur will make you want to stroke it for hours.
6. English Toy Spaniel

Their small size ensures that they can stay in apartments with ease. They make good family companions, are children’s favorite and fill your life with color.
To those who are not into lap dogs, bloodhounds are an excellent choice. These large dogs are perfect to cuddle up with or to shower with hugs. However, their dominant nature calls for the owner to be alert and to make sure that the hound knows who is the alpha in the house.
Titled as one of the most affectionate pets by PetMD, Bulldog is a heart-warming pet to have. Though it has contentious facial features, they don’t seem to be coming in the way of its popularity. Warm, charming, docile and devoted, the bulldog is everything you could possibly ask for and more.

If dogs had their own giraffe, this beauty would take the prize. Known to have an appetite for exercise and hence the athletic build the Irish Wolfhound is large and heavy. It has a wide range of emotions ranging from “gentle when stroked to fierce when provoked,” as stated by the AKC. Although it takes up a lot of living-space, and needs room not just to dwell but also to play around, this canine makes up for it all by being the lovely companion it is. They are known to be excellent home dwellers and fill your life with joy. If you are looking for love in your life, Irish wolfhound is your bae!
