|Oop, don't mind me then. Still very much depends on the individual dog and its upbringing though, so of course OP keep that in mind!
OP, you can consider or disregard what I say, but I'll just throw out a couple comments on my personal experience with the breeds-- (I'm acquainted with through family, neighbors, and friends) -- the pekingese I know ADORES children- the smaller and more rambunctious, the better LOL. She grew up since puppyhood with a 7 year old girl, and has grown into an extremely children-friendly pup.
Both male corgi and female sheltie I know are also both pretty solemn and laid-back; their owners take them on an hour stroll around the neighborhood at the end of the day together. Though the corgi is more outgoing than the sheltie (the sheltie is more cautious around strangers), both are very content and stable dogs!
Right, didn't mention before, but thanks for pulling it out-- both the pekingese and the cavalier tend to develop eye problems and other health issues later in life, apparently more at risk than most other breeds. Both pups I knew developed cataracts at ages 7 and 10. So that's the pitfall.
