An Analysis of the Most Prevalent Canine Breeds

Pembroke Welsh Corgi

People love Pembroke Welsh corgis because they have short legs and funny, active personalities. 

It's hard to believe how much energy these little guys have. The Kennel Club says they will need up to an hour of exercise every day.

Australian Shepherd

The Australian shepherd is another hunting dog on this list. They have a beautiful coat and are known to have a lot of energy.

This breed is smart, loyal, and tough, but what makes them unique is that they need to work and be trained to be happy. 

Yorkshire Terrier

Yorkshire terriers, which people sometimes just call "Yorkies," are small dogs with big personalities.

Even though Yorkies are small, they are still terriers, and terriers are known for being alert and feisty.

Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

As their name might suggest, Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are not as royal and aloof as they seem. 

The amount of movement a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel needs can be changed. They can be busy dogs or dogs that like to curl up on the couch.

Doberman Pinscher

One of the bigger dogs on this list, the Doberman pinscher, has a bad image for being mean.

The only time they might act mean is around people who train them to be guard dogs.
