Below is a list of the 10 most popular dog breeds provided by the American Kennel Club.
Each year the order varies a bit, but I'd say the list below is pretty accurate.
If you want more information on these specific breeds, I've created a full write up on each one.
Let's start with the most common breed:
- Labrador Retrievers
CBD can help Labs who suffer from a range of health issues.
3 common areas where CBD can help with this breed are obesity, cancer, and anxiety.

- Golden Retrievers
As I've mentioned many times before on this website, our Golden Retriever Rosie had great success with CBD. She suffered from hip dysplasia and cancer.
But probably the most common ailment associated with this breed is separation anxiety.
Many studies have shown that ingredients in these supplements can help reduce stress and anxiety.

- French Bulldogs
Frenchies are becoming a very popular breed.
One downfall is that they do have a few common ailments.
CBD can help with many of them, and a specific one worth highlighting is allergies.
CBD actually comes in forms such as balms and sprays, which you can use to target areas where your dog is itching too much, or where rashes are popping up.

If your dog suffers from seizures, you should strongly consider using CBD with them.
The Beagle seems to suffer from epilepsy more than some other breeds.
Unfortunately this is usually a lifelong condition, and medications can sometimes cause unwanted side effects.
But CBD has shown some amazing results in dogs suffering from seizures. Although it's not labelled as a cure, it has helped many dogs reduce the frequency and severity of their seizures.

Poodles suffer from some skin conditions, but they're probably best known for having Patellar Luxation.
This is more common in Miniature and Toy Poodles.
CBD can help Poodles because of its pain relief and anti-inflammatory properties. It can help reduce swelling around the knee, which may prevent the condition from getting worse.

With lots of exercise, Rottweilers are pretty healthy dogs, however every breed seems to suffer from a few common ailments.
For Rottweilers, I've found that cancer, specifically osteosarcoma, is a common ailment that pet owners treat with CBD.
This is a very aggressive bone cancer, and the survival rates are not great. Because CBD is such a powerful pain killer and anti-inflammatory, it can really help dogs be as comfortable as possible when dealing with this, and other cancers.

- Yorkshire Terriers
Yorkies can live to be teenagers, however they do still have some common ailments.
One area, among many, where CBD can help with this breed is with anxiety and aggression.
Many Yorkshire Terriers can develop behavioral issues and CBD may be able to help. It is believed that CBD may be able to help the symptoms of anxiety and aggression. Many pet owners have reported that their dogs are much more calm when taking CBD.

Colitis is a condition that unfortunately can affect quite a few Boxers.
This is a condition which is caused by chronic inflammation in the colon.
Again, the good news for dogs suffering from this condition, or other irritable bowel diseases is that CBD is a powerful anti-inflammatory. This is probably the best "feature" of CBD, because it can be beneficial for so many conditions, and Boxers all around the world are seeing good results with it.
