We conducted a comprehensive study to determine America’s most searched-for dog breeds using data from the American Kennel Club and Google searches between January 2022 and January 2023. OurFitPets analyzed the number of searches for more than 280 different breeds of dogs across all 50 states.
The results revealed that the Cane Corso is America’s most Googled dog breed and is searched for 1.32 million times on average each month. It was found to be the most searched-for dog breed in 46 out of 50 states, including North Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, Missouri, and South Carolina.
Coming in second is the Boxer, which boasts an average of 867,800 monthly searches across America and holds the top spot in the states of New Jersey and New York. The Boxer was found to be the second most Googled dog breed in three other states; Montana, Oregon, and Wyoming.
The French Bulldog is the third most Googled dog breed in America, with an average of 860,901 monthly searches across the states. Of all the states searching for this pint-sized pup, it was searched for the most in California, Florida, and Texas.
The Australian Shepherd comes in a close fourth with an average of 860,600 monthly Google searches dedicated to this dog breed. The states searching for the Australian Shepherd the most include Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Illinois.
The Shiba Inu ranks fifth overall with 767,981 monthly searches dedicated to this ancient breed. The Shiba Inu is the most Googled dog breed in Rhode Island and is the second most Googled dog breed in 11 states, including Washington, Virginia, Pennsylvania, North Dakota, and New Jersey. It’s worth noting that the Shiba Inu breed shares its name with the popular cryptocurrency, so it is unclear how many of these searches were for the Japanese hunting dog.
The larger-than-life Saint Bernard deserves an honorable mention among America’s most Googled breeds. It ranked as the most searched-for breed of dog in California, despite ranking 19th overall with 409,641 searches on average each month.
