To start, not a single breed got more negative mentions than positive ones, proving that all dogs are good dogs (not that this needed proving). In fact, the net sentiment of the entire dog breed conversation was 40%, a very strong number.
Interestingly Labradors don’t rank too highly on net sentiment. Instead French and English Bulldogs are up top, with the latter type way out in front at 62%. Similarly to Poodles, ownership isn’t that high for English Bulldogs – they place 5th in the US. Could this signal a rising demand for the breed?
At the other end of the table we have Rottweilers and Pugs. This makes sense as Rottweilers have a bad reputation (although one that many say is undeserved), while Pugs can face a lot of health issues.
Of course, we can’t write about dogs and not include a picture. Based on the Brandwatch Reach metric, here’s the picture within the dog breed conversation that was seen by the most people. He went with the name Gert if you wanted to know.
