The American Kennel Club has released a list of the most popular dog breeds in each state, and Iowa's results are among the most common.

I've never met a dog I didn't like! As a huge dog lover, there are no breeds of pups that I don't care for. Although, I do have a personal favorite (pugs, obviously). I grew up with a chocolate lab, and he was one of the greatest dogs on the planet, so I'm not surprised that the Labrador retriever has come in first place for the most popular breed for the 26th year in a row. There were only six states that didn't have Labs in the top spot, and Iowa was NOT one of them. Actually, Iowa's top three breeds are aligned with the overall top three. Here are the most popular breeds in the state of Iowa:

  • Labrador Retriever


  • German Shepherd
  • Golden Retriever
