Around 50% of French households have at least one pet animal, with dogs at the top of the list. In 2022, France had more than 7.5 million dogs, which testifies to the unwavering love that the French have for these animals.

French history and culture around dogs

Over the centuries, the importance of dogs in France has evolved, from working tools to life companions. French literature and art are full of references to the deep relationship between man and dog.

The most popular dog breeds in France

According to the Société Centrale Canine, the Labrador Retriever was the most popular dog breed in France for a long time, followed by the German Shepherd and the Staffordshire Bull Terrier. These breeds are valued for their friendly temperament, intelligence, and adaptability to various lifestyles.

However, the French are also known for their love of breeds like the Bichon Frise, Beauceron, Dogue de Bordeaux, Papillon and many others. More recently, the Australian Shepherd has found its place in the heart of homes.

The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic

The Covid-19 pandemic has led to a significant increase in dog ownership in France. Lockdown would have led to a 7% increase in the number of dogs in France in 2020 compared to 2019. This trend continued in 2021 and 2022, with an increase of 5% each year.

This increase has been attributed to the need for company during lockdown periods, as well as the opportunity for many people to spend more time at home and therefore be able to take care of a dog.
