We have long been a nation of dog lovers, but which breed is the country’s favourite in 2019?
Britain’s Favourite Dogs is back for the New Year, but this time it’s live as we ask viewers to vote for their favourite breed.
Presented by Sara Cox and Ben Fogle, this one-off programme will feature dogs of all shapes and sizes and focus on the wonderful relationships between an owner and their dog. The programme will feature fascinating facts about the heritage, key characteristics and personality traits of every breed in the top 100 chart, as well as a host of famous faces sharing stories about their bond with their four-legged friends.
There are currently 217 registered breeds in the UK and we will scour the country to bring viewers the most astonishing, heart-warming and funny doggie tales.
Throughout the programme we will run down the chart from 100 to 10 but the final top ten breeds will be decided in the live countdown with the voting open to everyone watching at home.
The nation has already been voting and this initial poll has determined which breed of dog has made it into the top ten – but the final ranking will be decided by you, the viewers. In no particular order the top ten breeds you can vote for are:
Springer Spaniel
Cocker Spaniel
German Shepherd
Staffordshire Bull Terrier
Golden Retriever
Border Collie
Mixed Breed
Please vote for your favourite breed of dog at  (T&CS apply)
We will also see some famous faces with their beloved dogs as they share with us their canine stories, including King of the Jungle Harry Rednapp with his Bulldog’s Lulu and Barney, Corrie star Sue Cleaver with her Mix breed, George Paws, Rod Stewart’s wife and TV personality Penny Lancaster and her Cavapoo, Bubbles, Martin and Shirley Kemp with their Poodle, Popsey, actress Gemma Atkinson with her Sproodle, Norman and Olympic Gold Medalist Nicola Adams with her Pomeranian, Bailey.
It’s a show that celebrates the love we have as a country for dogs, but which breed will be revealed as top dog and be crowned the winner?
