LABRADOR RETRIEVER DEFENDS THE TITLE OF MOST POPULAR
DOG BREED IN AMERICA

--AKC Releases 2003 Registration Statistics--

New York, NY - For the 14th consecutive year, the Labrador Retriever is the
most popular purebred dog in America, according to registration figures
released today by the American Kennel Club*. Nearly three times as many Labs
were registered in 2003 as any other breed.

Golden Retrievers were a distant second, with Beagles, German Shepherds and
Dachshunds rounding out the top five spots. The top five breeds are the same
as in 2002, with the exception that Beagles moved ahead of German Shepherds
into the third position.

The! top 10 most popular dogs according to 2003 AKC registrations are:
1. Labrador Retriever (144,934)
2. Golden Retriever (52,530)
3. Beagle (45,033 moving up one place from 2002)
4. German Shepherd Dog (43,950)
5. Dachshund (39,473)
6. Yorkshire Terrier (38,256)
7. Boxer (34,136)
8. Poodle (32,176)
9. Shih Tzu (26,935 moving up one place from 2002)
10. Chihuahua (24,930)

"The Labrador Retriever has proven once again to be a family favorite," said
AKC spokesperson Gina Lash. "The Lab's versatile nature makes him ideal for
work or play, which is why you see the breed successfully used for a variety
of tasks including AKC companion events, service work, hunting as well as
family companion."

At the other end of the list, the least-registered purebred dog (19
registrations) is the English Foxhound. The other four most rare breeds
are: Otterhound (34 dogs), Harrier (45), American Foxhound (52) and Komondor
(69).
In 2003, the AKC registered 150 different breeds, including the newly
recognized Toy Fox Terrier, German Pinscher and Nova Scotia Duck Tolling
Retriever. In total, nearly one million dogs (915,671) and 423,761 litters
were registered with the AKC in 2003.

Registrations remained the same or increased for 70 breeds including the
Bernese Mountain Dog (+22 %), Cavalier King Charles Spaniel (+32%), and Skye
Terrier (+75%). Some lesser-known breeds also saw significant increases in
AKC registrations, such as the Finnish Spitz (+52%), the Havanese (+42%) and
the Ibizan Hound (+84%).

"It's great to see that some of these breeds such as the Ibizan Hound are
being discovered," added Lash. "All of the 150 AKC recognized breeds have
traits and tendencies that make each one unique, and our goal is to educate
the public about their differences and characteristics. Potential dog owners
can only make informed decisions after research! ing the breeds and speaking
with responsible breeders. It's important to select the dog that fits your
lifestyle and that can be a successful addition to the family."

A complete listing of 2003 registration statistics is available in the
February issue of the AKC Gazette as well as on the AKC website at
www.akc.org.

*A Look Into the Archives
Historically, once a breed has achieved the "top dog" status at the AKC, the
trend continues for a number of years. Cocker Spaniels ranked number one
from 1940-52, before Beagles took over, 1953-59. Poodles enjoyed a long
reign as the most popular dog for 23 years (from 1960-83). Cocker Spaniels
made a comeback and were number one again from 1984-90 when the Labrador
Retriever took over (and where it remains).

AKC registration statistics were compiled approximately every five years
from 1915-1940. However, the Boston Terrier Club of ! America's records show
that between 1905 and 1935 the Boston Terrier held the number one or two
position consistently. It was displaced by the German Shepherd Dog according
to AKC data compiled in 1926, which was shortly after Rin Tin Tin was
featured in the Warner Brothers film "Man From Hell's River."

Gracias Amalio pero como tu bien sabes esto tambien conlleva a la cria sin escrupulos, sin ir a mejorar la raza, etc.... esto es hablando en general, por supuesto los hay buenos criadores que si que buscan la mejora de la raza. Esto tambien esta pasando aqui, cada vez es mas popular el labrador y esto lo aprovechan los criadores multirraza y los llamados productores, que compran 10 hembra y las hacen criar dos veces al año durante ni se sabe (bestias) y esto esta pasando tambien con el perro de agua español, ultimamente lo encuentro en todos los anuncios algunos como criadores unicos pero otros añadiendo esta raza a las tantas que tienen ya criando. Pero bueno esto siempre va a seguir y lo unico que se puede hacer es informar y concienciar a la gente que lo barato a la postre sale caro, asi que vayamos a criadores reconocidos o criadores esporadicos pero que tengan a los padres a la vista con con un control sobre la displasia, taras geneticas etc... para asi tener al menos mayores posibilidades de no encontrar estas lesiones/enfermedades.
Es lo que yo pienso claro, ¿que pensais vosotros?
un saludo
javi

Yo me estoy enterando de lo populares que son desde que lo tengo por que me fijo más en todo lo que tenga que ver con ellos. Ahora que conozco uno de cerca no me extreña que sea así porque son un cielo de perros. Estoy deacuerdo con Javi pero me temo que será difícil, muy difícil evitarlo.

Bueno agregando una nota, en un canal americano que se llama A&EMundo, el año pasado hicieron el top ten de los 10 perros de familia en los EU, y tambien fue el Labrador retriver el Num 1, calificaban, en resumen, lo hogareño del perro y el comportamiento hacia los miembros de familia.
Saludos.
