Smile Most Read: 7 Dogs Breeds With Sensitive Souls...

When we call a dog “sensitive,” we don’t mean it in a bad way. We’re just talking about dogs that are a little bit more emotionally delicate than others. Some dogs handle mild punishment very well, while others crumble apart at so much as a dirty look. This just means they’re very sensitive toward their owners, which is usually a good thing! If you’re looking for a dog that’s very receptive to your emotions, look no further than this list!

7 – Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Like the American Pit Bull Terrier, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier is a dog that was bred to be sensitive and gentle around people. They are often called the “Nanny Dog” because of their gentle nature toward children. Staffordshire Bull Terriers make excellent family companions.

6 – Rottweiler

Another powerful working breed, the Rottweiler can be very foreboding to strangers. However, they are very sensitive to their owners. These dogs are capable of police and military work but remain soft toward their handlers throughout their lifetime.*

5 – Dogue de Bordeaux*

Despite their intimidating appearance, the Dogue de Bordeaux is actually a very emotionally soft dog. They are very sensitive to their families, deeply loyal and gentle around those they know. Although aloof with strangers, they respond strongly to their owner's feelings and emotional well-being.*

4 – Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel was developed as a lapdog and serves that purpose today. They are gentle, affectionate companions that want nothing more than to see their families happy. The breed is very sensitive to the emotions of people and makes excellent therapy dogs for those in need.

3 – Border Collie

Like the Australian Shepherd, the Border Collie has been bred to work long hours in tough conditions. That said, they’re very soft dogs – emotionally sensitive to their handlers. Their sensitivity also makes them easy to train and work with because they respond very well to their owner’s desires. This aspect is one of the reasons you see Border Collies being so successful at working venues and dog sports of all kinds.*

2 – Australian Shepherd

Australian Shepherds are hard-headed toward livestock but very sensitive to their handlers. This breed is affectionate and social, enjoying quality time with their owners regardless of the activity. Their sensitivity makes them easy to train for various working venues and dog sports.

1 – American Pit Bull Terrier

The American Pit Bull Terrier might have a bad rap, but they’re actually very sensitive dogs. Even when you take their rough history into account, the breed was developed to be soft and gentle toward their owners – only to hunt and fight other animals. Today, they’re very loving and affectionate dogs that do respond strongly to their owner’s emotions.
