Most Popular Dog Breeds

Each January the American Kennel Club (AKC) compile a list of the popularity of each dog breed in relation to how many registrations there were of that breed in the previous year. To be in the top 10 most popular dog breeds is every dog's dream!

As you can see, it seems to mainly consist of the same dogs! They just shift positions amongst themselves throughout the years.

The Labrador Retriever has remained the most popular dog breed for the last 21 years!!!

The top 5 most popular breeds tend to be the same 5 dogs too. What is it about these dogs which make them so popular with dog lovers consistently throughout the years?!

If the dog's name is in a different colour then you can click on it to learn more about that particular breed.
