Maine - Popular and Best Breeds

The five most popular dog breeds in Maine are Golden Retrievers, Labrador Retrievers, German Shepherds, Spaniels, and Beagles. But there are many other breeds that can do well in Maine’s cold snowy climate. In general, dog breeds that have a dense coat and furry paws to insulate them from the elements do well in cold states like Maine. If you are wondering which are the best dog breeds for Maine, here are some examples.

Akita Inus in Maine: These are dogs from royal bloodlines in Japan that were once owned by the Imperial family. Akitas are great cold weather companions for Maine because of their dense undercoat and thick outer coat. While protective and loyal towards their families, Akitas can have a stubborn and independent streak to their nature.

Alaskan Malamutes in Maine: This is another breed that is the perfect cold weather canine for Maine. Hailing from Alaska, these are some of the largest Arctic sled dogs that were bred for freighting. The Alaskan Malamute has a thick coat that will keep her warm in the Maine winter.

Anatolian Shepherd Dogs in Maine: These are mountain dogs that are rugged and tough. They are great for people in Maine who love to go on long hikes. This breed is very protective and loyal, but early training is vital to ensure the dog understands who is boss.

Bernese Mountain Dogs in Maine: This is another great breed that is perfect for active Maine families. You can expect your Bernese Mountain Dog to have strength, agility, and speed and be a loving and devoted companion to you in your Maine home.
