Most Popular Dog Breeds in Australia

There are many dog breeds popular among dog owners in Australia, but certain dog breeds are more popular than others. The following are the 5 most popular dog breeds Australia along with essential information about their required maintenance needs.

Labrador Retriever

Labrador Retrievers are well known for their friendly temperaments, which make them ideal for families. Labrador retrievers make great companion dogs for families with children; they do have a tendency to become overweight, so it's important to monitor their diet. These are energetic dogs that require daily exercise, so they are not recommended for small apartments or families who aren't willing to take them out every day.

French Bulldog

French Bulldogs are well known for their distinctive appearance and their role as great companion animals. They are notably very patient with children, which makes them great for families. They do require a short walk but otherwise are not high-energy nor do they have high exercise requirements. Since they are not super active, they can become overweight if you don't carefully monitor their diet.

Border Collies

Border Collies are best known for their role as farm dogs, but they can make companion and family dogs as well. Border Collies are exceptionally high energy and require lots of training, mental stimulation and physical exercise. They are not ideal for apartments or owners who aren’t capable of meeting both their high mental and physical needs.

Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are best known for their elegant appearance and playful nature. They were bred as companion dogs, so they don't have high energy needs; however, they do need at least a daily walk and indoor play to keep their minds occupied, as otherwise they have a tendency to turn towards excessive whining and barking. They make for good family dogs with older children who know how to behave around dogs. It should be noted that standard "kibble" diets are not recommended for this breed as they are predisposed to health conditions.

Miniature Schnauzer

This highly unique looking dog is on the smaller side, but despite its small stature it has plenty of energy to go around. These dogs make for excellent watch dogs, though they have a tendency to be stubborn as well. They do fine with older children but may not have patience for younger children who aren't used to behaving around dogs. You will need to take them on a daily walk and engage in indoor playtime to keep them occupied. They are prone to allergies, to keep this in mind.

Final Thoughts

There are many dog breeds Australia for pet owners to choose from, whether they are looking for a family companion, a lap dog, or an energetic watch dog. The above dog breeds Australia are the most popular among dog owners in the country, so if you are looking for a breed that many people in Australia love to bring into their homes, then consider one of the popular breeds from the list above.
