They’re man’s best friends and the nation’s most popular pets, with one in four of us sharing our home with a dog.
With 217 recognised breeds, there’s a lot to choose from but it turns out Staffordshire Bull Terriers are Britain’s favourite dog.
ITV carried out a survey of 10,000 people to find out which dog breed is Britain’s favourite and Sara Cox and Ben Fogle revealed the results.
Here’s the full list of Britain’s top 100 dogs.
Britain’s top 100 dogs
1. Staffordshire Bull Terrier
The Staffordshire Bull Terrier was named as Britain’s favourite dog.
They were originally bred in the 19th century as fighting dogs, but most owners say they are softer than that.
Unfortunately being the nation’s favourite dog hasn’t stopped them being the most likely breed to be found in rescue centres.
The cocker spaniel and poodle cross is the most popular mixed breed in Britain and dates back to the 1960s.
It’s not hard to see why!
Usually at the top, the Labrador has been knocked down a few places but it’s still the world’s most popular assistance dog.
If trained they can help with anything from guiding the blind to doing the washing.
4. Springer Spaniel
With one of the best senses of smell of all breeds of dog, the military use Springer Spaniels to sniff out explosives.
5. Cocker Spaniel
Cockers love food which is pretty lucky if your name is Cooper, whose owner James Martin is a famous chef!
Boxers are renowned for being very bouncy.
They’re also possibly one of the cutest of all the dog breeds when they’re puppies (sorry not sorry).
7. Border Collie
A herding dog and the brightest of all dog breeds, it can understand up to 1,000 words.
They also get bored really quickly, so don’t get one of these if you can’t dedicate a lot of time and energy to it – or it’ll develop anxiety and destructive behaviors.
8. German Shepherd
These dogs are most often used as police dogs.
9. Golden Retriever
These beauties were originally bred as gun dogs to retrieve water fowl.
They’re also commonly bred with Labradors.
10. Mixed breed
They don’t really count as a breed but they incorporate around 400,000 different varieties of mixed breeds – also known as mongrels and mutts.
11. Flat Coated Retriever
Another breed that are often used as assistance dogs.
12. Miniature Schnauzer
Miniature Schnauzers are delightful small versions of their full-sized cousins and they’re a better fit for smaller houses.
They’re pretty stubborn and give the BEST side-eyes if they don’t want to do something – just a super cute dog.
I’ll stop now.
A Labrador and poodle mix.
Bred to be a low-shedding dog so they are ideal for people with allergies.
They can grow to be quite big though.
14. Dandie Dinmont Terrier
This is one of Britain’s oldest terrier breeds and also one of the rarest dogs in the world.
Another mixed breed, the Cavachon is a cross between a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a Bichon Frise.
Also known as, a cute ball of fluff.
16. Welsh Terrier
Typical terrier, they like chasing animals – particularly badgers, foxes and otters.
These noble-looking dogs are born with stripes for camouflage.
