    "There were some very cute rotties on the Shaun Micalief program Mr and Mrs Murder - a few weeks ago. Maybe that triggered an up surge in google searches?"

    Just to respond to this, this is Google searches averaged over SIX months up until February. There were no particularly huge surges in any one month, and this is search popularity, not ownership, but they often follow eachother. In fact search data often lead reporting on specific breed information by quite a bit, that is why I like to see what is happening as currently as possible.

    That said a rottie club or some marketing organisation may be very active on google creating an artificial spike.

    Thought I have to say that the spoodle high search trend last year did tend to coincide with purchases, which have since declined due to fickle public trends and media promotion declining.

    "NSW had good stats on council registrations, there - the most common breeds are the Labrador and the Staffordshire Bull Terrier."

    Across Australia, the Google six month average up to Feb had the top FIVE breeds as: german shepherd, golden retriever, lab, pomeranian & rottie.

    The staffie was top five a year previously but failed to make the top 15 searches in dog breeds across the country this time around. But of course this is the national average.
    Bruce is a "dog walker in inner west Melbourne" & sells "Healthy Dog treats." My dog Archie approves of these things.

    Thankyou LovelyDog for that post. i had wondered how these things are decided.
    I think you are right that popularity will follow purchasing to some extent
    I suspect the doodle has lost favor due to the myth sales of them being less hypoallergenic being false.

    While I no longer have a rottie, my first dog was a rottie.

    She was a wonderful dog, never agressive and was great with my kids.

    While some dogs may be born aggressive, I believe most are what they are made into. Unfortunately idiots who think they are tough teach their dogs aggression. These type of people should not own a dog.
