It’s no secret that dogs and cats don’t get along. In fact, most of the time, they’re at each other’s throats. But there are some breeds that seem to get along better than others. Vetster’s experts recommend, “You must learn the characteristics of a dog breed to make an informed decision.”

In this article, we’ll cover the best dogs for cats so you can find out which ones work best in your home!

Bernese Mountain Dog

The Bernese Mountain Dog is a large breed of dog known for its friendly and affectionate nature. This makes them great with children, but they can be too much for young kids. They are also known to be good with other pets, such as cats. If you have a Bernese Mountain Dog as a companion to your cat or another small animal, there are some things you should keep in mind:

  • The Bernese Mountain Dog is a big dog—not the best choice for small homes
  • They shed year-round, so regular brushing is recommended
  • They require plenty of exercise daily and lots of socialization
Basset Hound

Bassets are friendly, lazy dogs that enjoy lounging around and being petted. They do well with cats, but they also have a strong prey drive, so it’s important to keep cat toys away from them.

Basset Hounds are one of the few breeds that can be successfully trained to fetch, walk on a leash and perform tricks such as sitting or laying down on command.


A Vizsla is a medium-sized dog that is an active and energetic breed. They are known to have a lot of energy, but unlike some other breeds that have the same traits, these dogs do not have any signs of nervousness or hyperactivity. They are very affectionate and loyal dogs that love to spend time with their owners. They do well when training because they listen well and respond quickly when given commands.

Golden Retriever

Golden Retrievers are friendly and gentle with cats, making them excellent companions. They’re also known for being extremely patient with children, which makes them great family dogs.

They can be trained to work as a watchdog or hunting dog, but can also function as an indoor pet if you want to keep them away from the dangers of the outdoors. If you’re looking for a dog who knows when it’s time to relax, look no further than this breed! Their easy going nature makes them perfect for around-the-clock cuddling sessions.


A Labradoodle is a cross between a Labrador Retriever and a Poodle. They are smart, friendly, and energetic and make excellent family dogs. They are easy to train and get along well with cats as well as other dogs. These types of breeds are known for being great companions for children because they are playful but gentle at the same time.

They will be loyal companions who you can count on to protect your home from intruders while also being affectionate enough to cuddle up next to you when it’s time for bed or nap time!

There are other dog breeds that get along with cats, but these are some of the most popular. In the end, it’s important that you introduce the animals carefully to each other.
