I think, that there is a dog breed for everyone, its all about choosing the right one. On of the most important aspect is size of the dog. First of all, i would love to say that it is hard to generalize all dog breeds into one large category, like large dogs. But all 10 advantages are valid for most of the large dog breeds. Of course, you will always find some exceptions.
From my experience, large dogs have more confidence. They will not be scared of other animals like small dogs, which makes them less agressive towards other animals. It also makes the socialization easier. I am sure you noticed, that the most agressive dogs are the little chihuahuas, not the Great Danes.
Another big advantage is, that large dogs have bigger stamina and endurance. 7) Endurance If you want a partner for mountain hiking, running or cycling, you should get larger dog. They have bigger stamina. It is true for most large dogs, especially the hunting ones. But of course, there are exceptions and you can find very active small dog. Yes, i am talking about you, Jack Russell Terrier.
Large dogs are just more laid back and more patient. This makes them amazing companions for kids. They are more „cool-headed“ than their small cousins. Most of large breeds will tolerate kids around them without problems.
And not only they are laid back, they are also much more gentle. I am sure you heard about a term „Gentle Giant“. It is not true with all of them and i would say you will find the same number of gentle dogs in small dogs. But a lot of time, when people see giant dog, they see agressive dog. But most of the time it is not true. For example Great Danes or some Mastiffs are the most gentle dogs you can own.
