3 Top Popular Dog Breeds

Dogs! You just can’t get enough of them. Can you?

Chances are, you have a dog at home or you are thinking about getting one.

Statistics show the U.S alone has a whopping 73 million of these droopy-eyed companions – and for a good reason. Dogs perform an array of services from being good-old guard dogs to family-friendly and energetic dogs to being highly trained service dogs.

The world of dogs keeps evolving. The World Canine Organization commonly known by its French name Fédération Cynologique Internationale officially recognizes 339 dog breeds. Some are registered and others are not.

With the introduction of cross-bred designer dogs such as the Golden Doodle, there’s always a competition for which dog ranks as the most popular and there is always a set of dogs that stake a claim for the top prize.

If you are on the quest to get a new dog, here are 3 popular dog breeds you can consider.

Teacups

The Teacup is the very definition of “cuteness overload.” And it might just fit into your pocket! The Teacup dogs are as cute as they are tiny and have become a popular breed among dog lovers. Primarily, Teacups serve as lap dogs. Teacups are delicate and should be handled with care.

Teacup dogs include Teacup Chihuahua, Maltese, Shih Tzu, Poodles, etc.

If you are looking to purchase Teacups, make sure you shop from trusted breeders who have a proven track record. This will ensure you get a good breed that can be your companion for up to 15 years.

Labrador Retriever

For over 27 years, the Labrador Retriever has remained rooted as the most popular dog in the United States. If you are looking for a dog that has made it in famous movies and books, the Labrador Retriever should be your pick. The Labrador Retriever is loyal, friendly and great for the family.

Labrador Retrievers are born to work. Unlike the Bulldog, you won’t find an ounce of laziness in them. They are also highly trainable.

The Labrador Retriever can perform a wide range of functions including serving as a guide dog, therapy dog, and even more importantly, they can serve as assistance dogs for people who are disabled.

Poodles

Who doesn’t love a poodle? Just one glance at their cute face will have you longing to have one by your side. Poodles are not just cute; they are also very intelligent. They are often referred to as the world’s second smartest breed.

Poodles come in different sizes: toy, standard, and miniature.

They are just the perfect dogs for your kids to play with. Because Poodles don’t like to be left alone for long periods of time, they are full of energy and they would be a bundle of joy and excitement for your family.

When trained, poodles are extremely obedient and well-behaved. Because of their distinct characteristics, poodles are a top choice for cross breeders. Case in point, the Goldendoodle, which is a cross between the Poodle and the Labrador.
