Is there a dog breed that is more likely to get on well with cats? You can look at in two ways:
- The conventional view: some dog breeds are more suited to getting along with cats, or…
- The more realistic view: whether a dog gets along with cats depends on how the dog has been socialized which means whether the dog has been raised with cats in a friendly animal loving home. The breed of dog or whether the dog is purebred or not is irrelevant.
- In addition to number 2, individual cats and dogs have their personalities, likes and dislikes which includes liking and disliking other animals. Both 2 and 3 dictate if a dog gets along with a cat rather than the dog’s breed although some breeds may be more placid which probably helps the process.
If you believe number one then the lists below come from a variety of websites. You can see that some dog breeds are listed more than once. This may not be significant because people copy information but at least it provides some pointers – maybe.
