How Posh is Your Dog? 10 ‘Poshest’ Dog Breeds Revealed

The top 10 “gentlest” dog breeds likely to be found in British mansions have been revealed, with Labradors taking first place.

A new report from The Telegraph has uncovered famous posh pups across the country, including Downton Abbey’s Labrador Isis, Monty Don’s beautiful late Nigel, Ben Fogle’s black Labrador, and most recently Rishi Sunak’s Nova – a fox red Labrador puppy he introduced to the last week Publicity.

Other dogs loved by posh people include corgis (made famous by the Queen), handbag-sized pugs, and rescue dogs, thanks to Boris and Carrie Johnson’s Jack Russell crossbreed Dilyn. Additionally, another popular dog in London is the Dachshund – perfect for classy folks to take to long lunches or weekend getaways in the country.

Family-loving Labs regularly top the list of the friendliest and happiest dogs, but now they’re among the most popular among the upper class too. “They have good manners. You can have them in the salon when people are having a drink or in the dining room over dinner,” explains Annika Purdey, a Tatler employee. “You are brilliant with children.”

According to London pet stores, cockapoos are also one of the most sought-after dogs due to their light temperament and lack of fur, while French bulldogs have become a firm favorite with city dwellers as well.
