Have you just made the most amazing decision (ever) to own a dog?

Perhaps you’ve got a few canine companions at home already.

Either way, you might be wondering what the most popular dog breeds are in the UK.

Domestic dogs have come a long way from their traditional roots of wolves to our best friends.

Through years of breeding by humans, they’ve evolved to become some of the most diverse animals on this planet. On your typical day out in the UK, you’ll probably come across a few of them yourself.

And just as varied are breeds – so are their popularity.

But we love them all the same, and we’re so lucky to have them in our lives.
