Which 15 Dog Breeds Are Most Loyal to Their Owners

Unlike with other animals, dogs aren’t just “nice” to us because we give them shelter and food. We share a special connection with them and that is why they are so loyal. An experiment by ScienceDirect about a canine behavior discovered that the part of the brain, associated with enjoyment and positive emotions, lit up when the dogs could smell their owner’s scent. That’s the same part that is connected to love in humans!

We would like to show you our top 15 dog breeds that show unconditional loyalty!

1. Akita

Akitas, as described by the AKC, are profoundly loyal and fully devoted to their families. They are a Japanese breed, and you can expect affection, respect, and entertainment from them!

It comes to no one’s surprise that the most famous and faithful dog in the world — Hachiko — is an Akita.

2. Golden Retriever

Goldens are the most popular breed recognized by the American Kennel Club, and for good reason. They are friendly, intelligent, sweet, and also “fiercely loyal” to their owners.

  1. Puggles are fiercely loyal and the sweetest dogs. A little nutty at first but very loving!!! Our Puggle does not think he is a small dog but that is because he grew up with a yellow field lab.

  2. Immediately an Akita, and lived here to death but she was one of our least dedicated family dogs. She was a rescue and was a mad hunter! She was sure that nobody was going to fuss with our horses. But just not attached to a human as this has said.
    I’ve owned many dogs, but no dog is as much a family or dedicated people dog as my bulldogs. They are the most loving, silly and in tune to me than any other breed I’ve ever owned. My list of dogs I’ve had throughout my life are. Chocolate lab, husky, Jack Russell, Shorkie, bulldog, beagle, mixed breeds. But like I said the bulldogs are just amazing!
