If you are considering getting a new dog or if you are interested in dogs in general, you may want to know which breeds of dog are the most popular here in the UK. Now, this list isn’t made up of our top 10 favourite dog breeds, this list has been generated based on figures released by the Kennel Club.
These figures demonstrate how many puppies of each pedigree breed that they recognise are born within a given timeframe. These figures do not take into account all of the existing older dogs of that breed that are still around! Also, of course, non-pedigree and non registered dogs are also omitted from the calculations; you won’t ever see a Labradoodle, a French Pug or a Cockapoo on the list! So the dogs that make up the list might not be fully representative of their true popularity against all of the other dogs in UK, but establishing the top ten most popular pedigree dog breeds by birth numbers is certainly a good place to start!
The popularity of these breeds tend to remain consistent year after year so you will often see the same breeds of dog appearing on the list.
One final note before our Top 10 Dog Breeds In The UK picture slideshow…. Look who’s in the number 1 spot! Yes, that’s right, it’s a Labrador!!
