Best Dog Breeds Information

Trying to put a finger on the best dog breeds is like looking for a few nuggets of gold in a pile of gold nuggets. If you're a dog lover, you would have a hard time choosing any breed over another one, but some people prefer specific sizes, temperaments, and character traits that other dogs don't have. Of course, one good way to choose the best dog breeds is by looking at the most popular breeds set out by the American Kennel Club. These are determined by which dogs have the highest number of registrations by a certain year. Some of the most popular ones include:

Labrador Retriever – This dog is consistently chosen as one of the best dog breeds in the world. Labrador Retrievers are smart, energetic, and loyal, which is an excellent combination to have in any breed, in any setting. They can be a medium to a Large Dog Breed and have been given one of the highest intelligence ratings of any canine. Because of this intellectual prowess, Labrador Retrievers are often put to use as working dogs, and they're one of the most popular seeing eye dogs for the blind the both the United States and the United Kingdom, as well as in Canada and Australia.

Yorkshire Terrier Information – The Yorkshire Terrier is the second Most Popular Dog Breed, and works very well as a companion dog. One of the interesting things about the Yorkshire Terrier Breed, or Yorkie, is that its coat doesn't shed very much, and some owners claim that it is a Non Shedding Dog Breed. Because of this, it's very Hypoallergenic Dog Breed, making it an excellent choice for anyone who is normally Allergic to Dog Breeds.

German Shepherd Facts – As a working dog, perhaps no other breed has seen as many uses as the German Shepherd Dog. These dogs are strong, agile, intelligent, and loyal, and because of this they're commonly seen alongside the police and the military. The K-9 unit of police dogs is comprised primarily of German Shepherd Police Dogs. They can be trained extremely easily, and were originally used for guarding herds of sheep in Germany. It's also because of these reasons that so many people own a German Shepherd; this one breed alone comprises 4.6% of all of the registered dogs at the American Kennel Club.

Golden Retrievers History - Golden Retrievers are some of the friendliest and most loyal dogs in the world. As the name retriever suggests, their original purpose was to be used as hunting dogs. When the hunter shot down a bird, they needed a dog to sprint off into the woods to find it and bring it back.

They are excellent swimmers and trackers, which makes them ideally suited to this purpose. Many hunters today still prefer Golden Retrievers to any other breed of dog when they are out hunting. One of their characteristics thanks to selective breeding is that they have very soft mouths, the purpose of which was to bring back a wild game fowl without harming it in any way. They are without a doubt one of the best dog breeds.
