Ohio Popular Breeds and Best All-Weather Dogs

Like much of the country, the most popular breeds in Ohio are Golden Retrievers, Labrador Retrievers, and German Shepherds. Other dog breeds that are in high demand in Ohio include Shih Tzus, Pit Bull Terriers, Miniature Schnauzers, Beagles, Boxers, Short Coat Chihuahuas, and Siberian Huskies.

Not sure which breed is right for you? There are dozens of responsible and experienced breeders in Ohio who can help you make the right choice for your lifestyle (check out the listings on Puppy Hero!).

In the meantime, given that Ohio has warm summers and cold winters, here are some of the best dog breeds for hot and cold weather.

Labrador Retrievers in Ohio: Lab Retrievers have a thick coat that sheds profusely twice a year. The coat helps them adapt to both warm and cold weather. They also have webbed toes which makes them great swimmers and prevents snow from accumulating between the toes, which is great for wintertime in Ohio.

Border Collies in Ohio: This breed was originally bred as a herding dog but makes an excellent pet for Ohio families. Border Collies are versatile and adapt well to a range of climates. They have a furry double coat to keep them warm in the winter and a soft undercoat that helps their bodies get rid of heat in the summer.

Weimaraners in Ohio: These large dogs are athletic and have a virtually non-existent coat of hair. Nonetheless, they are hardy hunting dogs that adapt reasonably well to cold weather and hot weather because of their high energy and metabolism. Ohioans who think they can handle a dog this size should definitely consider this loving and loyal breed.
