There is no love as loyal and forgiving as the love of a dog. Whether you are feeling high or low, your dog is sure to be there for you through thick and thin. Although all dogs are certainly capable of loving their owners, there are some breeds that are known for their particularly cuddly nature. If you are looking for a dog that is exceptionally affectionate, the following breeds may be a good fit for you.


Greyhounds are the fastest dogs in the world and come in varying sizes. Despite their large stature, greyhounds are incredibly affectionate. Don’t be surprised if you find these infamous “couch potatoes” most often on the bed or the couch.


There’s a reason why this dog is the most popular breed in the world. Renowned for their good nature, Labradors are prone to snuggling up next to their owners.

Golden Retriever

This handsome dog breed is also among the most popular dog breeds in the world. The outward fluffy and tolerant personality makes this breed a perfect fit for families.

King Charles Cavalier

King Charles Cavaliers are known for being a loyal constant companion. Cuddling up with their owners is in their nature.

Brittany Spaniel

Though a less common breed, this dog is extremely friendly and warm. Brittany Spaniels enjoy nothing more than curling up on your lap for a rest!


This popular dog type loves to be cuddled and babied, which is easy to do because of their fluffy and adorable coat. Pomeranians are an incredibly loving little dog breed.

Old English Sheepdog

These energetic fluffy dogs are very playful and love to cuddle. Having a sheepdog is like having a living teddy bear in the house!

Irish Wolfhound

The Irish wolfhound is the biggest among the sighthounds weighing up to 180 pounds. However, don’t let their bulky size dismay you – these dogs will always find a way to snuggle.


The collie is also a popular dog in Hollywood because of their adorable outward appearance and fluffiness. Collies are extremely loyal and build lasting relationships with their owners.


The Papillon is small, sociable, and docile, which makes them excellent family pets. A papillon is definitely a great option for those looking for a constant furry (in this case, very furry) companion.
