THE 9 MOST POPULAR DOG BREEDS IN THE USA
We often get questions like “what’s a good dog breed for a beginner?” or “what’s a smart dog that can do tricks?” The truth is, there is no right or wrong breed that can do this or that. Dogs breeds are unique to each other just as much as the dogs within the same breed. Although there can always be generalizations, there is never certainty. Your best bet is to familiarize yourself with the dog first (whether you’re doing this before or after you’ve taken Fido home).
However, some dog breeds are definitely more popular than other breeds- no doubt about that. This is a good indicator of what breeds are generally more agreed upon to “be able to do this” or “are well-known to do that.” Another positive is getting a breed that everyone has means you can join support groups or talk with other owners who likely have the answers you’re looking for.
So, that’s why we made this list of the top 9 most popular dog breeds in the United states- to give prospective dog owners some ideas of what dogs are popularized and… “well-documented” (for lack of a better term). Note that this list fluctuates due to trends or new discoveries, so it’ll change constantly.
