Stacker is here to help hopeful dog owners with their important pre-pup research. Using data from the American Kennel Club dog profiles, we’ve compiled a list of the 30 most popular large dog breeds.
To be considered for this list, each dog’s max height must be at least 25 inches, and its max weight must be at least 70 pounds. The dogs are ranked by their 2019 AKC popularity rank, which was released in 2020. While this is in no way the authoritative source for picking a new canine companion, it’s intended to be a resource to help guide that search.
From American favorites like collies and Chesapeake Bay retrievers to foreign breeds gaining in popularity like borzois and Akitas, there’s sure to be a breed that catches your eye and pulls at your heartstrings.
