Default dog-friendly breeds

so, i know there is a list of breeds that are known to be more DA than others. are there any particular breeds that are know to be more docile and social than others? [yes, i realize that it's never a guarantee and that it changes from dog to dog, but i am wondering tendencies in breeds in general.]

That may be true, but some breeds in general are easier to socialize than others.

This is only partially true. You cannot buy a puppy out of a dog aggressive parent (mom or dad) and expect to never have a problem. Socializing is always important, but the temperaments of the parents matter too.

Agree completely.

My pit bulls great grand dad is a champion dog fighter. Reggin is part Gator. Neither his dad nor reggin is dog aggressive at all. I socialized reggin as a young pup. He was pretty easy to socialize. Just a little scared of dogs at first. He was the most timid pup of the litter, and I havent had any issues with him. His dad is 3 years old and hasnt had any problems with other dogs either.

On the other hand, I have met pit bulls and a couple other breeds at 8 weeks of age showing aggression towards other dogs. Obviously those pups would be harder to socialize.

I think its about how you socialize a dog and the individual dog. Some dogs are just more hard to socialize than others regardless of breed.

Breeds who's original purpose was to work in packs together tend to be more dogfriendly. For example, Siberian Huskies needed to work in teams to pull the sleds so it is essential they would get along with other dogs, and in general they do.
