Top 10 Regal Dog Breeds Revealed

The top 10 regal dog breeds that will exude grace in every step have been revealed — and the results will surprise you.

With the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee right around the corner, Rover analyzed over 1,000 dog parents in the UK to find out which pups are most likely to behave in front of Her Majesty – and which wouldn’t.

While Cockapoos (75%) have taken the top spot, Labradoodles (71%) and French Bulldogs (70%) came in second and third place, respectively, thanks to their gentle demeanour. On the other hand, however, Beagles (32%) were most likely to bark or howl uncontrollably in Her Royal Highness ‘presence de ella, while Cocker Spaniels were found to jump up at the Queen.

Corgis might the Queen’s favorite dog breed, but they surprisingly came in 10th place. Friendly and outgoing, the study found these dogs are most likely to bow before Her Majesty.

      The team at Rover say: “The breeds able to meet Her Majesty’s royal standards include Huskies, who were most likely (48%) to only speak when spoken to (eg bark on command), and Labrador Retrievers (69%) who would shake hands with the Queen (place their paw in her outstretched hand). Proving why they are the Queen’s pooch of choice, Corgis would be most able to bow before her (41%).”

Ensure outfits are not constricting and that they don’t keep them on for too long. If you have a street party planned, remember to think of your furry friends and don’t be tempted to feed them anything they shouldn’t eat, just because it’s a special occasion.”
