dog breeds in India - cover photo

There are more than 370 recognised dog breeds in the world and India is starting to home many of them. We already have an abundant number of Indian dog breeds, and many pet parents have extended their homes to dogs from other parts of the world. Hence we have a very diverse list of dog breeds in India.

In this article, we will look at the most popular breeds in India and their characteristics. We hope this helps you decide which dogs you want to bring home.

Types Of Dog Breeds In India

The American Kennel Club (AKC) has segregated breeds according to their physical health, agility and natural tendencies. There are 8 distinct breed types, namely:

  • Toy Dog – These dogs don’t grow beyond 9 inches. Many Indian families are looking into toy breeds, like Chihuahuas and Spaniels because of their manageable size. We suggest not to pick a toy breed just because they’re small. Most toy breeds have a lot of energy and frequently need human interaction.
  • Herding Group – Herding dogs have an inborn tendency to control the movement of other animals, mainly livestock. The most common herding breeds in India are the Belgian Malinois and the German Shepherd.
  • Working Group – Working dogs are intelligent, easy to train, usually medium to large and can quickly learn commands. The Dobermann and Rottweiler belong to this category.
  • Hound Group – Hounds are those dogs that exhibit hound like characteristics even after years of selective breeding. Some hounds have an impeccable ability to catch scent while others, in this group, are fast and agile. One of the most common hounds found in India is the Beagle. Other hounds include the Blood Hound, Basset Hound etc.
  • Terrier Group – Terriers are a group of dogs with different looks and sizes. They were classified into this group primarily because of their personality. Terriers are energetic dogs, independent and have a high prey drive. Terriers must be socialised as puppies if you want to avoid problems in the future. The most common Terrier breeds are Bull Terrier, American Pitbull Terrier, Scottish Terrier etc.or
  • Sporting Group – These dogs were trained for centuries for sporting activities like hunting, swimming, dock diving etc. There are four main sporting groups, namely, Retrievers, Setters, Spaniels and Pointers. Some of the most popular dog breeds in India belong to this category: Labrador Retriever and Golden Retriever.
  • Non-Sporting Group – Non-sporting dogs belong to various breeds and natures. They are added to this group if they don’t fit into any of the above categories. The Chow Chow and Bulldog etc. are a part of the non-sporting group.
  • Miscellaneous Class – As we said earlier, there are around 370 breeds recognised by the AKC. The board understands that there are dog breeds yet to be listed. Usually, newly discovered breeds or those registered by other kennel clubs (like the Indian Kennel Club, IKC) belong to this category until they are given a proper breed status. Many Indian dog breeds like the Rajapalayam, Kombai, etc., belong to this category.

The groups are made keeping the diverse personalities of breeds and their characteristics in mind. We will briefly go over each type of dog breeds available in India. You will notice many of these groups present in our country.

Guard Dog vs Family Dog

There are two kinds of tendencies in a dog. They are either friendly and trusting or protective of their family. 

A guard dog can stay harmoniously as a family dog and vice versa, but each dog has unique traits, and it is our job to provide them with an environment that allows them to grow to their full potential.

If you are planning to get a dog, we are sure their personality is essential for you. Here are some natural tendencies, the pros and cons of both guard dogs and family dogs. We hope this helps you pick the right kind of dog.

Guard Dog

guard dog breed in india

A guard dog may adjust well in a family, but their primary instinct is to guard their family or one person in the family. They are wary of strangers and may attack if provoked. Some of the best guard dog breeds in India are Dobermans, German Shepherds, Gaddi Dog and Rottweilers. Most native Indian breeds are also excellent guard dogs.

Here are some pros and cons of having a guard dog:

Pros

  • They don’t readily go to strangers, hence are less likely to be stolen/hurt
  • They protect you, your family and your house from intruders
  • If trained well, they can protect kids as well
  • They are intelligent and easy to train

Cons

  • Training and socialisation is a must. An untrained, unexposed guard dog can become aggressive and a threat to whoever crosses it
  • Since they are intelligent and have a lot of energy, they need to be exercised every day

Family Dog

family dog in india

Most Indian families prefer family dogs because they are good with guests and young children. They may be an ideal breed for you if you have young children, and you can’t supervise them every time your kids and dogs play with each other.

Here are some pros and cons for family dogs:

Pros

  • Minimal training required for (low energy) family dogs
  • Can mingle with other pets and human beings
  • Are wonderful companions for kids

Cons

  • Since they are friendly, they tend to go to strangers who might be a threat to them
  • May have separation anxiety

Lastly, neither personalities are superior to the other. It all depends on your taste and requirements. The best kind of dog is a balanced one who understands threat and is safe to have around friends and family.

10 Popular Dog Breeds in India

India is home to both Indian and Western breeds. In this list, we will look at a few Indian and foreign dog breeds in India. We arranged the list from the least popular to the most popular dogs in India. We have also mentioned why you should or shouldn’t consider getting any of these breeds.

Starting from the 10th most popular, here they are.

10. Rajapalayam

rajapalayam dog breed

Sadly, most Indian breeds are at the bottom of this list. The Rajapalayam is originally from the south, from a city named Rajapalayam in Tamil Nadu. They were declared a protected breed by the Tamil Nadu government a few years ago. 

The Tamil Nadu government has taken many efforts to revive the breed. However, with overbreeding and crossbreeding, their bloodline is generally diluted, and problems like congenital deafness has translated into the group. 

If you want to bring home a pure Rajapalayam, be sure to get in touch with a reputed ethical breeder who does not over breed females and keeps their dogs well.

Breed Highlights:

  • Generally healthy dog, ideal for hot and humid cities
  • Thrives best in farmhouses and lawns because they have a lot of energy
  • Temperament: One man dog – very protective of their owner

9. Indian Pariah

The word ‘Pariah’ translates to the outcast. They are the only dogs on our list that are not pure breeds. Pariahs are native to the Indian subcontinent and perhaps one of the best dogs to own in hot tropical regions in India.

They are easy to maintain, friendly and trainable. Pariah dogs are more loving than most other Indian pure breeds, and they tend to guard their family as well. So, you get the best of both worlds by adopting a Pariah.

8. Cocker Spaniel

The cocker spaniel is a favourite among nuclear families. They are small, easy to train and great with kids. In short – the complete package for an average Indian family.

Hunters bred the Cocker Spaniel to hunt, which is why they have a lot of energy and a high prey drive. They need to be exercised every day to burn off that energy. A walk, twice a day, along with mental stimulation exercises, are perfect for them.

Breed Highlights:

  • Moderately healthy; prone to eye problems, skin problems and allergies
  • Thrive in cooler temperatures; make sure to take proper precautions during the peak summer
  • Moderate shedders and droolers so, be prepared for some extra cleaning

Dalmatians are from South Croatia. They are an old breed but gained popularity after the movie 101 Dalmatians. Since then the breed has been on high demand in India and other parts of the world.

Dalmatians are generally friendly, high energy dogs. However, because of over breeding and unethical practices, many Dalmatians have become aggressive. This is why it is imperative to get dogs from an ethical breeder.

  • Thrive in both hot and cold temperatures but be sure to take precautions during peak summers and winters
  • Though they have a short coat, they shed heavily

The Great Dane is the ultimate gentle giant. You may be intimidated by their size, but they get along with friends, family, children and other dogs with ease. 

There are two kinds of Great Danes – the European and the American variety. The American Great Dane is more popular in India because of their docile nature.

Breed Highlights:

  • Aren’t the best guard dogs. But since they are so large, few people want to go against a Great Dane
  • Being so large, they are prone to big dog problems like hip dysplasia, bloat and bone cancer
  • Thrive in warm temperatures
  • Minimal shedders and heavy droolers
  • 45 minutes to an hour of workout is good for them but, because of their size, don’t take them out right after a meal. It increases their chances of bloat

  • Height: 28 – 38 Inches

     

     

  • Life Expectancy: 7 – 10 years

5. American Pitbull Terrier

Pitbulls are starting to gain a lot of popularity in north-central India. Sadly, their reputation in the west has transferred to India as well. Most worry that Pitbulls are aggressive killers, but studies show, they are less likely to bite when compared to Dobermans and Rottweilers.

Purebred Pitbulls generally have good health and are great with children and other dogs. However, socialisation is a must from a very young age. Being a part of the terrier family, they aren’t the easiest to train and might be difficult for first-time owners.

Breed Highlights:

  • Have a high prey drive. If you have more than one animal at home, it’s better to bring them early and socialise them as soon as possible
  • Thrives in both warm and cool climates

Indian Spitz

Indian Spitz were recognised as an official Indian breed by the Kennel Club of India (KCI) in 1975. They are similar to the Pomeranian, but after living in India for centuries, they are well accustomed to the Indian climate.

 

Since they are similar to German Spitz and Pomeranians, many breeders sell them at the same price as a Pomeranian. It is difficult to differentiate them as puppies. Please conduct background checks of the breeder in question before purchasing an Indian Spitz.

Breed Highlights:

  • Being native Indian dogs, they generally have good health. Older dogs are prone to cancer and eye problems
  • Thrive in both hot and cold temperatures
  • Excellent family dog; vary of strangers

  • Daily brushing is vital to maintain their coat

  • Life Expectancy: 12 – 15 years

3. Beagle

beagle

Beagles are excellent family dogs; they are vocal and can alert you about strangers. They are less likely to fall sick because genetic problems are bred out of their genes.

Beagles are old breeds and were initially bred to hunt. This is why they have a very high prey drive and are likely to chase butterflies, rodents, rabbits; literally, any small creature that moves. 

Being active dogs, you should exercise them every day but always keep them on a leash when on a walk. Their strong sense of smell and high prey drive distracts them, and they get carried away chasing small animals.

Breed Highlights:

  • Can thrive in warm temperatures
  • Vocal dogs; known to produce multiple sounds
  • Good at alerting owners in case of an intrusion
  • Prone to ear infections
  • Minimal grooming required

2. Golden Retriever

Number two on our list is the humble Golden Retriever. They are known for their calm and quiet demeanour. Their soft touch and gentle nature makes them perfect for kids. Golden Retrievers are often used as therapy dogs and sniffer dogs because they’re easy to train.

 

However, if you plan to keep a Golden Retriever, be ready for a lot of grooming and long walks. They are big dogs with a double layer coat which needs a lot of maintenance. 

If you buy an Indian born Golden Retriever, the weather wouldn’t be much of a problem as long as you keep them indoors during the summers.

Breed Highlights:

  • People pleasers; if you train them early, they will grow into ideal family dogs
  • Being a big dog, they have health problems like hip dysplasia, elbow dysplasia, bloat, eye problems and allergies
  • Daily grooming required

  • Weight: 24 – 34 Kg

     

  • Height: 21 – 24 Inches

     

  • Life Expectancy: 10 – 12 years

1. Labrador Retriever

The most popular dog breed in India and the world is, of course, the Labrador. And why not? They are gentle creatures, loving and great with kids. They have a lighter coat when compared to Goldies, hence require less grooming. This is why most Indians prefer Labs over Goldens.

 

Behaviour wise, there are minute differences between the two. Those who owned both breeds have said that Goldies learn faster and can understand human behaviour more easily. However, this does not mean that our Labs are behind. They are the 7th most intelligent dog breed in the world!

Breed Highlights:

  • Bred in India for longer hence they thrive in Indian temperatures. 
  • Please look into a well-known breeder if you want a Lab. Owing to their popularity, they are often overbred, leading to many genetic disorders

Rottweilers are strong, intelligent and confident. They were first bred in Germany to pull carts and herd farm animals. Now, they are known as some of the best guard dogs in India.

Though they have the physical strength and stamina, they are very calm and less likely to bite. Why then are Rottweilers considered one of the most dangerous breeds? It’s because with Rotties training is not an option; it is an absolute necessity. Rottweilers need consistent training and feeding. As with any other dog, an untrained Rottweiler is a threat to the entire society.
