The Most Popular Dogs Breeds In America

Dogs breeds

       What makes a breed popular? Partly its looks and disposition, and partly fashion. The Labrador Retriever has ranked No. 1 in American Kennel Club registrations since 1991, probably due to its versatility as a family pet, hunting dog, and service dog. But back in the early 1930s, Boston Terriers were the most popular. Next came Cocker Spaniels, Beagles, then Poodles, from 1960 to 1982.

       Fashion is fickle, and just as quickly as a breed becomes popular, it can drop right out of favor. In 1990 there were 105,642 Cocker Spaniels registered with the AKC; in 2003, the number fell to 19,036. It’s important to note that the more popular a breed is, the higher the percentage of poor-quality puppies there will be for sale, bred by people who know more about marketing trends than they are doing about dogs.Below are the highest 25 AKC breed registrations for 2007.
