If you are single and own a dog, your dog’s breed just may give you a boost in the dating department, according to a survey by the pet social network Klooff.
Klooff surveyed 1,000 people to find out the top 5 breeds that make single men and women more desirable to date. Read on to find out which breeds can help (and hurt) you on the dating scene.
If you have beagle, chat up a potential date next time you are walking your dog in the park. That’s because beagle owners attract men, according to the survey.
Beagles are happy-go-lucky and friendly, according to the American Kennel Club. They are also one of the most popular dogs in the United States.
Men are also attracted to Chihuahua owners.
Chihuahuas are graceful, alert and swift-moving, according to the American Kennel Club. They are also highly intelligent. However, there is bad news for female Chihuahua owners. According to the Klooff survey, men think women who own Chihuahua’s are “more likely to be dumb’’ than women who own any other breed.
The Golden Retriever attracted both men and women to possible mates. Men in the survey were overwhelmingly more likely to see a woman who owns a Golden Retriever as girlfriend material than a woman who owns a Chihuahua.
According to the survey, having a Golden Retriever implies that a man is a “great dad.’’
The Golden Retriever, with its intelligence and eager to please attitude, is one of the most popular breeds in the United States, according to the American Kennel Club.
People who own poodles are attractive to men. However, there is bad news for female poodle owners. Men surveyed thought women who own poodles are more likely to just be a “one night stand’’ than women who own any other breed.
According to the American Kennel Club, the poodle is exceptionally smart, active and excels in obedience training.
Labrador Retrievers, like Golden Retrievers, made both lists — attracting both men and women to their owners.
The gentle, intelligent and family-friendly Labrador Retriever continues to be the most popular breed in the United States, according to the American Kennel Club. In fact, it has been the most popular breed for 21 years.

Women want to date Siberian husky owners. According to the survey, people see male Siberian husky owners as “more manly’’ than male owners of bulldogs.
The Siberian husky is known for its endurance and willingness to work. Its agreeable and outgoing temperament makes it a great all-around dog, suitable for anything from sledding to therapy work, according to the American Kennel Club.
Women are attracted to German shepherd owners, says the survey.
The breed is approachable, direct, and fearless, with a strong, muscular body, according to the American Kennel Club. It is also one of the most common breeds in the United States.
If you own a French bulldog, an interested woman may want to chat you up. Yet, according to the survey, a man who owns a bulldog is seen as just a “hook up’’ over a man who owns a Labrador Retriever.
French bulldogs are prized for their lovable and affectionate dispositions, according to the
American Kennel Club.
Attention Rottweiler owners: You may want to leave your dog at home if you are seeking a date. This survey discovered that people are 10 times more likely to see a man who owns a Rottweiler as “slimy’’ or “sketchy’’ than a man who owns a Siberian husky.
A Rottweiler is robust, self-confident, powerful, and an inherent protector, according to the American Kennel Club.
