Want To Know The Most Popular Dog Breed? Check Out This Article!

Americans love our furry four legged friends. In fact, almost 50% of homes own at least one dog. However, some breeds are, without a doubt, more common than others. At Citizen Canine, we love dogs of all shapes and sizes, but the following are the most common dogs in America.

1 – Labrador Retriever
Anyone who has met a lab, which is just about everyone, shouldn’t be surprised that Labrador Retrievers are the most common breed in America. This is a breed that aims to please, which makes them great family pets but generally horrible guard dogs. However, Labradors are active dogs that need company and direction. This is where our dog daycare in Oakland comes in handy. No matter what hours your job has, your pooch won’t have time to get depressed.

2 – German Shepherd
A top choice among police agencies, German Shepherds are also a top choice with families. With proper training, the German Shepherd is a loyal breed that works well with children but also makes a great guard dog.

3 – Golden Retriever
Golden Retrievers have it all: beauty and brains. However, it’s important to remember that this gorgeous coat requires regular grooming. Don’t think that this is a breed that just likes to sit around looking pretty either; Golden Retrievers are part of the sporting group and need plenty of exercise.

4 – French Bulldog
Ok, the Frenchie, as commonly called, isn’t actually the 4th most popular dog in America; it’s the 11th. However, The French Bulldog is the most popular dog in the bay area. Originally bred as a companion animal, French Bulldogs can easily adjust to the requirements of apartment living. However, just like many dog breeds, Frenchies don’t fare well if left alone for extended periods of time. If your furry friend needs some socialization, contact us about our dog daycare in Oakland.
