Best Big Dog Breeds for Emotional Support

According to the Human-Animal Bond Research Institute (HABRI), pets improve mental health in people experiencing stress, sadness, or loneliness. Because dogs evolved living so closely with humans, they are especially adept at reading human emotions and nonverbal cues. A dog’s presence serves as a constant in times of upheaval. 

It’s not surprising that big and cuddly dog breeds can give companionship, comfort, and emotional support. Here are a few large breed dogs that are known for showering their owners with affection:

  1. Labrador Retriever.
    • Labrador Retrievers are popular as pets and assistance animals because they’re reliable, laid-back, and responsive to their owner’s emotions. Their temperament is even-keeled and not easily ruffled. This breed also likes to be petted and doesn’t mind prolonged periods of physical closeness. Labrador Retrievers also make excellent family pets because they’re patient with children. When it comes to emotional support, you can’t go wrong with a Labrador Retriever.
