1. Labrador Retriever
The famously friendly and loyal labrador has regained its spot at the top of the Kennel Club’s most popular dog breeds table after being knocked off in 2018 by the French Bulldog. Labradors make the perfect family dog; they’re highly sociable, enthusiastic, easy to train and love to play. Like many dogs, they require a lot of exercise, like swimming and plenty of games of fetch to keep them physically and mentally fit. Labradors are most loved for their affectionate and patient nature which makes them a great pet for families with young children and other kind natured dogs.
