Top Breed Blog Posts of 2023

We enjoy a good breed-focused blog post to outline the highlights of a specific breed including why so many of us love this breed and how to keep them happy and healthy. Here are the best pet blogs about dog breeds that we posted this year!

  1. Great Pyrenees: Big Dogs, Big Hearts, Big Risk

This is no surprise this dog made the list. As giant breed dogs, they are big-hearted and there are lots to love. One of our Parnell employees added the Pyrenees to their family, and we got up close to see how he's grown. So adorable!

2. Golden Retrievers: Loving, Beautiful, and at Risk for Arthritis

Goldens are one of the best dog breeds out there, and certainly one of the most popular, currently at #3 of the top breeds in the U.S. We gave lots of information about this fantastic breed, and Golden owners continue to find it!

3. Rhodesian Ridgebacks: Regal, Athletic, Affectionate & At Risk for Arthritis

A bit of a sleeper hit, this blog is a great resource for thses beautiful dogs. Many did not know they existed. The trademark Rhodesian Ridgeback ridge are the unique striped markings on their back. This stripe is the defining characteristic of this breed. The Rhodesian’s “Ridge on their back” or “Ridgeback” is hair growing backward from the rest of the dog’s coat.

4. Pitt Bull-Type Dogs: Strong, Loyal, Arthritis Risk

We celebrated October's National Pit Bull Awareness Month with a post all about these big, beautiful dogs. Surprisingly, they are quickly becoming the most popular breed in the U.S. Thanks to the increase of adoption of Pitt Bull-type dogs. There is so much more to this breed than many may think. Check it out!

5. Labrador Retrievers: Beautiful, Top Dogs with Big Arthritis

Since 1991, the Labrador Retriever has been Top Dog according to the AKC. That changed in March of this year when the AKC named the French Bulldog as the new #1 breed. But according to the many people who use Glyde Mobility Chews, Labradors are the top breed for them. Labrador people are our kind of people!

6. German Shepherds

Our GSD audience is very loyal to their dogs, just as their dogs are to them. They remain on our list as one of the top dog breeds. GSDs are smart, obedient and full of love. Those who are lucky enough to have one, know what a great dog they really are.
