Top 10 most represented dog breeds in the world

The world's fourth largest market research and marketing audit institute, GfK, published in 2016 the results of a large study (27,000 respondents in 22 countries). It revealed to us, for example, that 56% of the world's inhabitants own at least one pet, with dogs being popular in Latin America, while Russians and French people prefer cats. We also learn that Argentina holds the record for the number of pets per capita. But what are the most represented dog breeds around the world? Answer in this top 10.

The Rottweiler

The Rottweiler is popular in Italy and, more broadly, around the world thanks to its talents as a guard dog: it would give its life to protect its master and his home. A playful dog, he is a good companion for children. However, some precautions should be taken because this is a dog full of strength, without being fully aware of it, so it can make clumsiness in the heat of the action.

The German Shepherd

The German Shepherd is a very popular dog in France, Canada and the United States, and is even more famous for its use in movies and television series. Its very obedient character and exceptional trainability make it a great movie actor. Very good working dog, it is one of the breeds most used for guarding in general, and herding in particular.

The Golden Retriever

The Golden Retriever is a very popular breed in the world since the 1990s. They are dogs that need space and lots of exercise. They are particularly fond of water, an element for which they are perfectly equipped: an undercoat that protects them from the cold and water, webbed paws and a long and powerful tail that they use to propel and steer themselves. Thanks to their calm and sociable character, they are used a lot with disabled people.

The Pug

The Pug is said to be the most popular breed in Russia. It is a very loving dog. Mischievous and prankster, so much so that he was chosen to play the role of a cheeky character in Men in Black 2, he loves spending time with his master. He demands a lot of attention and if he is not given all the attention he wants, he can quickly get into trouble.

The Labrador Retriever

The Labrador Retriever is said to be the most popular dog in Germany. It is one of the most suitable dogs for families with children and is a great playmate. Its cheerful and friendly character contributes to its success. Docile, intelligent and patient, he is a very good guide dog for the blind. It was in Germany that the first school for guide dogs was opened in 1915.

The French Bulldog

The French Bulldog is a small-sized dog, very popular in Great Britain. Since 1891, the Crufts, the largest dog show in the world, has been held in Birmingham every year, with more than 25,000 dogs participating in beauty contests and dog sports events.

The French Bulldog also has a playful temperament, very pleasant for both adults and children. It is even recommended for the elderly, because it does not need much exercise. A daily outing will suffice. Very empathic, he feels the joys and sorrows of his master.

The Beagle

The Beagle is one of the most popular dog breeds in Poland, a country with one dog for every five inhabitants, one of the highest ratios in Europe. It is a dog that needs a lot of exercise. It is particularly suitable for people who want to do sports with their four-legged friend (cani-cross or mountain biking for example), especially since it can get bored quickly. The unspeakable Snoopy is inspired by this breed, which is very close to its social group.

The Poodle

The Poodle is very popular in France. Louis XVI already owned a Poodle. And this breed saw its popularity explode during the Second Empire. But it is also a dog very much loved by Americans. Full of energy, he is intelligent and curious, which makes him very apt to learn, especially since attached to his master, he will try to please him. He is also very cuddly.

The Yorkshire Terrier

The Yorkshire Terrier is a popular small dog in Spain. It is a clever terrier dog originally bred for its ability to chase rats and rabbits. Its strong character requires a firm and constant education: we have seen many owners find themselves overwhelmed by their Yorkshire who had taken very bad habits of life.

The Cane Corso

The Cane Corso is particularly widespread in Romania. Of very imposing size, it is docile and will be a good companion for the children. In case of danger, it will defend its owner with efficiency. Contrary to other dogs, it does not drool excessively. It is a sporting dog which will need a good daily dose of exercise.
