Review of Breed Popularity

Do you ever wonder what kind of dogs are actually the most poplur in different countries?
I do. I was able to find statistics for the top 20 UK and the U.S. and the top ten in Australia. There are some similarities and some interesting differences.

According to the UK Kennel Club the 20 most popular breeds they currently have registered are as follow:

Retriever (Labrador)


Spaniel (Cocker)

    


Spaniel (English Springer)


German Shepherd Dog

   
  
 


Cavalir King Charles Spaniel


Staffordshire Bull Terrier

    
 

    


Border Terrier


Retriever (Golden)

 


Boxer

 


West Highland White Terrier

          


Miniature Schnauzer

          


Shih Tzu

   


Pug

          


Lhasa Apso

   


Bulldog


Yorkshire Terrier

          
   


Whippet


Dogue de Bordeaux

          
   


Bull Terrier

          


Beagle

Meanwhile, over at the American Kennel Club the top 20 are currently:

          
Labrador Retriever

German Shepherd Dogs
Beagles
Golden Retrievers
Yorkshire Terriers
Bulldogs
Boxers
 


Poodle


 
Dachshunds


Rottweilers

 

 
Shih Tzu
Miniature Schnauzers

Doberman Pinschers

Chihuahuas

 

 

German Shorthaired Pointers

Siberian Huskies

Pomeranians

French Bulldogs

Great Danes

Shetland Sheepdogs

 

 

 

It is intersting to me where the overlaps occur – for example, the Labrador Retriever is the most popular dog in also Canada, and New Zeland.

 

In Australia the top ten breeds have one or two surprises compared to the other lists we’ve reviewed so far, such as the breed at number one is not a Lab – they’re all the way down at #2 in Australia:

 

Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Labrador Retriever

German Shepherd

Cavaliar King Charles Spaniel

Golden Retriever

Border Collie

American Staffordshire Terrier 

Poodle

Pug

Rottweiler

There we have it — a review of some of the most popular breeds of dogs in a handful of places from around the world.  I know I’m living with a few of the popular breeds – a Labrador and a Bull Terrier – and one breed that hasn’t been in the top 20 for a long time – a Collie. Of course, perhaps the most popular dogs of all are the mixed breeds and I’ve certainly lived with many, many of these wonder dogs in my life.

How about you? What canine companions grace your home currently and is there any breed you’re still hoping to live with one day?

My one day list – almost endless :-)
