Top 20 Dog Breeds – 2020
Pet insurance Australia is proud to announce the top 20 dog breeds for 2020.
“It’s always great to see these types of lists,” Nadia Crighton from Pet Insurance Australia says. “It’s a really wonderful gauge to see how pet owners are choosing their beloved breeds.”
The top 20 dog breeds are comprised of pure-bred and mixed bred dogs of all shapes and sizes. From the smallest of dogs like the lovely Miniature Dachshund to the well-known larger breeds like the German Shepheard and Labrador.
“The top two breeds are smaller well-known breeds, that are certainly crowd-pleasers and make wonderful family companions,” Crighton says.
Interestingly many of the top-pure breeds in the top 20, are also represented in a crossed breed form.
“This really illustrates the popularity of these particular breeds of dog.”
Many of the newer breeds also feature heavily, such as Cavoodles, Labradoodles, Spoodles and Groodles.
“These designer breeds have certainly taken off over the past 10years and are proving very popular with pet owners around the globe,” Crighton says. “That is no surprise considering their lovely natures and beautiful looks.”
With pet ownership and adoption on the rise, Pet Insurance Australia will be interested to see if this will make any difference in the breeds mentioned.
“Since COVID-19 pet ownership is certainly on the rise with many deciding it’s the perfect time to get a family pet,” Crighton says. “It will be interesting to see if this affects the breeds mentioned in our Top 20 Dog Breeds – 2021.”
