I’m a dog expert – my go-to breeds if you want a super gentle pup no matter big or small | The Sun

A DOG expert has revealed his top breeds of pooches if you want a gentle and calm dog.

Will Atherton, from the UK, took to social media to share the best gentle breeds for pets, ranging from small to large furry friends.

In the clip he said: "So let's look at gentleness across the main different size categories.

"If we started with the small dog breeds, you might be sick of me recommending them, that's because they are the best small dog breeds.

"Get yourself a King Charles Spaniel."

For medium sized dogs, the canine expert recommended the Labradoodle.

"Labrador mixes tend to come out pretty gentle or Golden Retrievers," he added.

He said: "Look no further than the English Mastiff, the Newfoundland or the St Bernard."

It's important to note all dogs should be trained adequately.
