How do you measure how popular a type of dog is if you intend to include mixed and unrecognized breeds? We decided to conduct a survey asking "what breeds do you currently own?" and these are the results. The breeds are listed in order from the most popular to the least popular. A dog is listed as a "mix" breed when it is a mix and neither the mother or father's breeds were known. The "mixed breeds" are broken down by size. When one parent was known it is listed as a mix of the known parent. If you do not see a breed or type of dog listed it is because no one reported owning that type of dog during the time period the survey ran. This survey was run independent from any of the other surveys taking by the Dog Breed Info Center®.
The survey ran from September 7th 2013 to January 12th 2016.
Total number of dogs = 12,003
