Popular Dog Breeds

A list of the most popular dog breeds can make a very long debate on which kind of dog breeds do and do not belong in the list. Let that list include the dog that bit you as a child and scared the hell out of you then made you outraged. This could even get worse and let that dog put down your current beloved dog and that does it, you do not want to have a dog at all. To be fair you must consider the source of the list and what started the list in the first place. For instance the AKC or the American Kennel Association shows it’s top 100 dog breeds based on the number of dog breeds that are created and brought to their attention. They will not say that one breed is so called “better” than others for the sake of lists like this, they simply state how many and the quantity of the breeds there are.

If you search for the words in Google “most popular dog breeds” you will find, the last I checked, over 85,000 listings for that key word listing. This will range from different categories of dogs to the most popular dog breeds for children. What I would like you to do is an experiment, narrow down that search to what exactly you are looking for, if you do that it should help dramatically. Maybe you are looking for what dog lovers call “toy dogs”, so type in “most popular toy dog breeds” this takes it down to about 60,000. This way you will be able to pull up exactly where your favorite dog breed places.

Everyone has their favorite and least favorite kinds of dog breeds. It does not matter how or why they got to that point, they just go there and that’s that. For them you can talk to them until you are blue in the face and you will not convince them that a husky is a perfectly good dog breed if it is trained properly or that a yorkie can sometimes be more of a hassle than it is worth. Some people will dismiss a type of dog based on one horrific experience that they had with one dog in that breed. This is not fair to the rest of the loving well mannered dogs in that breed. Two things heavily influence how popular dog breeds are they are for one the dogs they put into movies and the dogs that are winning at the dog shows. Regardless of all the hype there are a few winners or the favorites to all which make it to the top relentlessly. These breeds include the Labrador Retriever, the Golden Retriever, the Beagle, the Yorkshire Terrier and the Poodle.

Last but not least lets not forget the new wave of animals or the “hybrids” or designer dogs these dogs are quoted as giving you the best of both worlds. These popular breeds include the Puggle, this is a mix of the Pug and the Beagle, the Labradoodle, a mix of a Lab and a Poodle, and last but not least the Cockapoo, a mix of the Cocker Spaniel and a Poodle. These kinds of dog breeds are not registered by AKC but never the less are becoming very popular, as proven if you look them up on the internet.
