Detroit’s New ‘Pupular’ Dog Breed

I try my best not to pick favorites, but we all have one. What is your favorite breed of dog? I love all dogs, but it’s a tie between a Golden Retriever and a Bernese Mountain Dog. I mean, come on, they’re both beautiful!

Well, it looks like Detroit has a new favorite!

It may have taken a few years, but Rottweilers have finally captured the top spot in the popular dog breed of the American Kennel Club in Detroit. They were number 2 for two years in a row, and AKC Executive Secretary Gina DiNardo says she is excited to see more love for the breed.

I’m happy that the Rottweiler holds the top spot in this city for a change. Rottweilers are naturally playful, gentle, and affectionate with their families. They make a good watch dog too.

As we know, there are some breeds that have a bad rap. Some communities have a ban on Rottweilers. According to the AHHA, Rottweilers are one of the top breeds responsible for dog bites. In 2019, pit bulls had the highest number. Because of the breed’s territorial instincts, the AKC recommends early training and socialization.

I’m really not surprised that the French Bulldog emerged as the second most popular dog breed in Detroit and across the country. You’re just too cute.

Regardless of the breed that has been in the veterinary field for several years, each breed has its advantages and disadvantages. What matters is the amount of work you put in as the owner. You need to be patient and properly train them in order for them to have a successful relationship with you and others around you.

Here is a list of the top 5 dog breeds in Detroit and around the country from the Detroit Freepress.
