Europe’s Most Searched for Breeds And It’s Not the Labrador Retriever!


The Labrador Retriever may have just been named the most popular dog breed in the United States for the 27th year in a row, but overseas, this high-spirited companion doesn’t carry the same kind of clout. According to new research, Europe’s most popular dog breeds are the Cane Corso and the Rottweiler.

  • The most Googled dog breed in the UK is a French bulldog – this breed doesn’t appear at the top of any other google searches in Europe

  • The cane corso is the most popular dog breed in Europe – this breed is the most popular for over a fifth of European countries, including France, Latvia, Romania and Croatia

  • The Rottweiler is more popular in Europe than the pug – Rottweilers feature in top place for 10 countries in Europe, including Italy, Finland and the Netherlands, whereas the pug is first for 8 countries, including Greece, Portugal, Russia and Kazakhstan.

tip of the day

Dogs (and some cats) like cool treats just as kids do. Consider freezing Ultramix sweet potato or pumpkin puree dietary supplements in an ice tray and serve ice as a summer treat. Alternatively, turn the frozen treat into something special by freezing the mixture in small plastic cups and using a natural chewy treat as the stick. Insert the treat when the puree is partly frozen to get the stick to stand up properly. The treat should be easy to remove from the cup if you run the cup briefly under lukewarm water.
