The Top 20 CKC Breeds for 2008

The Canadian Kennel Club is pleased to announce the top 20 registered breeds for 2008. No surprise here; the Labrador Retriever continues to reign supreme as the top breed for the ninth consecutive year, and remains Canada’s most popular dog! Familiar to the second spot is the ever-popular Golden Retriever and the German Shepherd Dog continues to hold steady in third place.

Overall, there is very little change to the top ten most popular 2008 CKC-registered breeds, over last year. As for the top 20, note the increase in popularity of the Bulldog, who after entering the top 20 in 2007 at number 16, now ranks at number 11 in 2008. New to the top 20 are the Spaniel (American Cocker) at number 19 and the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel sneaking in at number 20.

For registrations by group, the 2008 results show that the Sporting group continues to be the most popular group, followed by Working, Herding, and the increasingly popular Toys. In total, the CKC registered 66,048 dogs in 2008.

For a complete list of dog and litter registrations for 2008, please watch for the results in the February 2009 Bulletin and on the website, or you may refer to your March 2009 Official Section.
