  • “We have such a wide variety of pedigree breeds in this country, each with completely different characteristics, so it is encouraging to see so much diversity amongst those that are increasing in popularity, from the large English Setter to the small Skye Terrier, and of course the iconic Old English Sheepdog.”

    As well as the iconic Old English Sheepdog, other pups that are doing particularly well include the small Skye Terrier and English Setters — a breed which saw its popularity more than double in 2021.

    The shaggy white breed, famously known as the Dulux dog, moved to the Vulnerable Native Breeds list in 2020 after falling below 300 annual puppy registrations, but has now seen a significant surge in registrations far exceeding the national average.

    “We are delighted to see that so many of our vulnerable native breeds saw a boost in popularity over the past year, indicating that many puppy buyers were resisting the urge to go for the most obvious and fashionable choices and instead using lockdown to properly research the full range of breeds and select the best fit for their lifestyle,” Bill Lambert, spokesperson for The Kennel Club, says.

    According to Kennel Club data there are 29 Vulnerable Native Breeds in total and nine on the ‘At Watch’ list.

    A spokesman for the Kennel Club said “There has been a steady decline in the popularity of the breed over the years and in 2018 it recorded its lowest number of registrations ever with just 384 puppies registered.

    The Club ­— which has been logging pedigree dogs since 1873 — will class it as “vulnerable” if the decline continues.

    “By contrast, more exotic and fashionable breeds such as the Alaskan Malamute – a breed with a wolf-like appearance similar to ‘Ghost’, the dire wolf in the popular TV series Game of Thrones – have seen an increase this quarter.

    “We would expect the numbers to have declined over the years as a result of lifestyle changes – it is a breed with a good temperament that can make a lovely family pet but it also needs a lot of grooming and exercise and so is not suitable for the fast-paced urban lifestyles of many people.
