Taking out the top spot for Australia’s most popular breed was the Cavoodle! 

Labrador Retrievers came in a close second, followed by Greyhounds, whilst Border Collies and Golden Retrievers took out fourth and fifth place.

Scratch surveyed almost 13,000 dog owners to find out which dog breeds were the most popular, but they also found a number of other surprising results. 

33% of dog owners under the age of 35 confirmed that they have an Instagram account for their dog – but they aren’t the only ones keen on sharing their cute pups with the world! 29% of 35-44-year-olds also fessed up to having dedicated doggy Instagram accounts. 

The survey also confirmed the massive role COVID played in household decisions to add a dog to the family, with 45% of respondents getting a dog in the past two years. 

Pre COVID only 22% of respondents spent all day with their dogs, but that number has doubled to 44% now that so many people are working from home.

Whilst an overwhelming number of respondents said that they would consider adopting their next dog, only 19% of the 13,000 dogs surveyed were rescued – almost 60% were brought home from a breeder. 

Think dogs and owners can look similar? The survey also learnt that 3 in 4 people chose breeds with similar personalities to their own!

Over half of the respondents also admitted to their dogs owning their own clothes.

Scratch also compiled a list of the funniest things dogs have destroyed, including a wall, $600 headphones, a Tiffany & Co necklace and…homework.

“My relationship with my neighbours” added another cheeky dog owner.

The survey also revealed the ten most popular dog names in Australia, with Luna taking out the top spot.
