Most Popular Dog Breeds
Are you wondering how popular your puppy really is? Now you can find out. The most popular dog breeds of 2021 based on the 2020 AKC registration statistics.
All countries have their favourite tastes for pets, and although a nation’s dogs are as diverse as its people, there are still some breeds that are more prevalent than others.
Not surprisingly, the Labrador Retriever may take the top spot for the 29th year in a row, but among the other big movers and shakers is the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, which entered the top 10 for the first time this year. Other notable changes include the Icelandic Sheepdog, which has moved up 24 spots since last year.
Why are registration statistics important? Registration is not only beneficial for your dog, but for dogs everywhere. The American Kennel Club and its member organizations have donated more than $38 million to dog health research and $7 million to pet disaster relief.
In addition, the AKC is the only purebred dog registry in the U.S. that maintains systematic and sustained screening and inspection efforts. The AKC conducts thousands of inspections each year to ensure compliance with standards that support the health, safety and welfare of dogs and the environments in which they live.
