Cute kids and adorable dogs go together perfectly – they both love playing in the mud, eating things off the floor, and playing with you when you're tired. These cute photos will prove that every kid could use one more furry best friend to their family.

With responsible training (for both kids and family pets), nanny dogs can be safe and helpful companions that will play with your children, protect them, and teach them to be compassionate to animal friends. Your dog must be trained not to jump on children, not to nip them, and generally to obey your commands. Children must be taught how to pet correctly, how to approach dogs, and to respect their space when they are eating.

If you have a photo of kids and dogs hanging out, please add it to this list!
