Canada is the world's second largest country by landmass, but is only ranked 38 by population. That means there's a lot of space between people, and the way the Canadians combated this before cars were mushing dogs. Although cars make it much easier to travel, the country still holds annual dog mushing competitions that travel the country. Other then for transportation, dogs have always been a favorite companion to Canadians, thanks to their loving and affectionate personalities. Not all dogs can live in Canada easily though, and plenty will need to have thick coats or just a general love for the cold. Check out these top breeds for life in this northern country!
Poodles are known for their thick, curly hair, that is often trimmed and groomed into interesting styles. This type of fur makes them the perfect companions in Canada since the coat's durableness and thickness resists the cold temperatures that are frequent here. Besides the nice coats, Poodles are intelligent, alert, and active pups, and make great guard dogs.
Canadians originally descended from French immigrants, so it's no surprise that the French Bulldog makes this list. Although these pups don't have much in the way of a fur coat, their easy going and lively personalities are enough to make these pups a favorite for Canadians. Plus, they love to play outside and will still drag you out into the snow!
