Top Dog Breeds and Top Dog Names 2018










The Top Dog Breed & Top Dog Names for 2018:

September 23 – 29 marks National Dog Week and well, as you may know, we’re a little crazy about dogs of every shape, size, and coat type. We know dog ownership is on the rise, and with such a vast variety of looks, temperaments, and abilities, it got us wondering: which pups are most popular? Well the list is in! And in honor of National Dog Week, we’re recapping the most popular dog breeds and top dog names in 2018.

Top Dog Breeds

According to the American Kennel Club the top 10 most popular breeds for 2018 are:

  1. Labrador Retrievers (For the 27th year in a row!)
  2. German Shepherds
  3. Golden Retrievers
  4. French Bulldogs
  5. Bulldogs
  6. Beagles
  7. Poodles
  8. Rottweilers
  9. Yorkshire Terriers
  10. German Shorthaired Pointers

Keep in mind, the AKC doesn’t recognize certain breeds that are gaining popularity like Golden Doodles or Cockapoos; while you may get them from a breeder, they aren’t considered pure breeds (but they’re still amazing!)
