A poll has revealed the most popular dog breed in each province and Canadians have a clear favorite


Fresh out of a federal election, it may feel like the country is more divided than ever, but luckily there are still things that can bring us (or at least some of us) – like the most popular dog breeds in Canada!

Dog food subscription service Kabo published a survey earlier this year in which they named the favorite dog breeds of 2,000 Canadian dog owners, and there’s a clear winner when it comes to who is the best dog of them all.

The Labrador retriever stood nose and shoulder above the crowd, with a plurality of respondents in six provinces with labs: Alberta (10%), Saskatchewan (15%), Manitoba (14%), Ontario ( 14%), New Brunswick (14%). %) and Nova Scotia (17%).

However, there is a margin of differentiation. For example, the survey indicates that the most owned breed in Quebec (at 14%) and Newfoundland and Labrador (10%) is the German Shepherd, while this honor is shared in Île-du- Prince Edward between the Shih Tzu and the Labrador Retriever (22%). British Columbia also opted for a different choice, with 11% of respondents in the province saying they own a golden retriever!

According to the company – which only included answers about purebred dogs for “data clarity” purposes – the list of the top 10 dog breeds includes the Labrador Retriever, German Shepherd, Golden Retriever, Siberian Husky, Chihuahua, Shih Tzu, Poodle, Pit Bull, Pug and Yorkshire Terrier.
