TikTok user @southenddogtraining1 uploaded a video and revealed that Golden Retrievers were his first choice.

He explained: “Probably the friendliest and most social dog on the planet, fantastic with children.

“Very soft, very gentle, but also active enough for you to go on vacation, to the beach, etc.”

He then revealed his other top canine picks for young children.

He also gave some tips for successfully introducing a dog into your family.

The dog lover said: ‘Make sure you teach your kids that dogs aren’t climbing frames and make sure you teach your kids to leave dogs alone when eating and sleeping .

“Teach your child to be respectful of the dog, teach your dog to be respectful of your child.”

Many people said they agreed with his list, with one saying, “I actually recommend Golden Retriever to anyone buying a dog because I have one.”

Another added: “100% staffys, the nanny breed.”
