24 Lovable Dogs Who Are Amazing Babysitters

By Briana Hansen

Dogs and kids were pretty much made for each other. Little humans and our canine companions seem to be on a wavelength that the rest of the world often doesn't tune into. And that's why they can make such adorable babysitters.

To be fair, leaving your child home alone with only a dog to watch over them isn't exactly smart or safe. But if you're around and they're supervised (in case of an emergency), these two critters can get the biggest kick out of each other. And here is some delightful evidence to prove it.

1. It's hard to tell who's entertaining whom.
