5. Older Dogs Like to Chill Too

Want to relax on a lazy day? Feel free to invite an older dog over to relax and cuddle with you. An older dog is more likely to welcome and enjoy naps with you after you have had a long day or just want to chill on a lazy afternoon.

6. Older Dogs are Good with Kids

If you have kids, adopting a senior dog is a good option. Older dogs generally are patient with kids. They are less rowdy and not as rough as puppies and younger dogs can be during playtime. In addition, they will also be protective of the kids. A senior dog may also have had experience living with kids within its lifetime so it should not be difficult for them to adapt.

7. Senior Dogs Make Great Friends for Human Seniors

If you are living with an elderly member of the family or thinking about getting a senior dog for an elderly person, it is a wonderful choice. Senior dogs are wonderful companions for human seniors. Not only will they help look out for the human senior when needed, they will also serve as a good friend since they are going through the same stage of aging. Some senior dogs may have had experience living with the elderly in the past too.
