Best Breed Roundup: Winter Cuddles Edition

The winter months are officially upon us! Is there any better way to spend the coldest days than cuddled up on the couch with your favorite blanket and a furry friend?

Let’s take a look at a few dog breeds that are known for being cuddly and affectionate:

Bichon Frise

Bichon Frises are small balls of fluff with playful but gentle personalities! They’re also sturdy and adaptable and get along great with children and other dogs.

These pups have a couple of things in common with the popular Poodle. They are very intelligent and easy to train, and also have fluffy, curly coats that require daily brushing.

In addition to being affectionate, Bichon Frises are also very energetic. An ideal cold weather day with this pet is to spend some time playing indoor games, and then spend time curled up on the couch for some petting and brushing!


The regal Pugs were bred to be lap dogs! These small dogs are known for being friendly and affectionate, but don’t have the same energy or grooming needs as the Bichon Frise.

These popular pups are friendly with families and happy to loaf about on dreary days. Just be sure to enjoy daily walks and regularly wipe your Pug’s wrinkles.

Great Dane

Believe it or not, this gentle giant is also known for being quite a couch potato! These loyal pups do need regular exercise and are happy to go on adventures with their humans, making them an ideal companion year-round for everything from summer camping to winter lazing.

Can’t decide on the best cuddly canine companion for cuddling on cold nights? Adopting a furry friend from your local shelter is always a good choice for an affectionate animal!
