The Top 10 Most Popular Dog Breeds in America in 2015

Yesterday, the American Kennel Club announced the results of their annual survey of the most popular dog breeds in America, and once again, the Labrador Retriever took the top spot. For 25 years in a row, the Lab has been #1 on the list, which is determined by the AKC based on the number of registrations received. In fact, 2015’s top 5 breeds are the same as last year’s list. The 6th place breed, the French Bulldog, is the biggest riser of the bunch, moving up from 9th place in 2014.

Rather than just tell you the rest of the breeds, we thought we’d show you. Here are 2015’s top 10 most popular dog breeds, starring 33 gorgeous DogWatch Dogs from across the country (and a few international ones, too)!
