Everybody loves a little lap dog — but when it comes to canines, big ol’ dog breeds are where it’s at. There are just so many more things big dogs can do and places they can go. Plus, their size inherently makes them better cuddlers.
True, big dogs do usually require a ton of care when it comes to exercise, but they make up for it with their larger-than-life personalities — not to mention the affection they’re more than willing to dispense at the drop of a hat. And do you think a Yorkie is going to help you train for a marathon? Nope, but a big dog sure will.
