Detroit’s New “Pupular” Dog Breed

I try my best not to choose favorites, but we all have one. What is your favorite dog breed? I love all dogs, but this is a connection between a Golden Retriever and a Bernese Mountain Dog. I mean come on, they are both beautiful!

Well, it looks like Detroit has a new favorite!

It may have taken a few years, but Rottweilers have finally won the top spot for the popular dog breed from the American Kennel Club in Detroit. They’ve been No. 2 for two years in a row, and AKC Executive Secretary Gina DiNardo says she’s glad to see the breed getting more love.

I’m thrilled to see the Rottweiler hold the top spot in this town for once. Rottweilers are naturally playful, gentle, and affectionate towards their family. They also make a good watchdog.

As we know, some breeds have a bad reputation. Some communities ban Rottweilers. According to the AHHA, Rottweilers are one of the leading breeds responsible for dog bites. In 2019, the Pit Bulls had the most numbers. Due to the breeds territorial instincts, the AKC recommends early training and socialization.

I’m really not surprised that the French Bulldog has become the second most popular dog breed in Detroit and across the country. They are just too cute.

Regardless of the breed, having worked in the veterinary field for several years, each breed has its pros and cons. It comes down to how much work you as the owner put into it. You must be prepared to be patient and train them properly so that they have a successful relationship with you and others around you.
