No matter how you do these studies, Labrador retrievers always come out on top . . .
A new poll looked at the most popular dog breeds in America by doing a bunch of one-on-one matchups, and having people vote. And labs won 83% of their matchups.
193 different breeds were matched up against each other. Here are the dogs with the highest winning percentages . . .
And four different breeds won 70% of their matchups: Samoyeds, Australian shepherds, Icelandic sheepdogs, and Norwegian Buhunds.
At the bottom of the list are Chinese crested dogs, winning only 17% of matchups. They also tend to dominate the World’s Ugliest Dog Contest. They win it about half the time.
YouGov has the list. At the bottom, you can search for specific breeds.
