The Most Popular Dog Breed in YOUR State


Every year the AKC releases a list of most popular dog breeds based on their registration records for that year. The Lab has reigned as the top dog since 1991. But this popular dog breed list is a dog of a different color.

TrustedHousesitters (self-proclaimed largest pet-loving community) analysed over 3.5 million pet-loving mentions over a year’s worth of conversation specifically talking about their pets on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to gather data and break it down by state across the USA.

PetLovesBest recently produced an infographic detailing the breakdown of the five most popular dog breeds in each state of the US based on that analysis:

Devoted pet owner and now, devoted pet editor, Judi worked in traditional offices, keeping the books and the day-to-day operations organized. Taking her dog to work every day for over a decade never seemed odd. Neither did having an office cat. She knows what it's like to train a new puppy and she's experienced the heartache of losing beloved companions. Retired, she currently lives with her spoiled dog and four chickens (who are, interestingly enough, also spoiled).
