Mixed breed dogs and domestic felines top lists of most insured breeds
Boise, Idaho – Pets Best Insurance Services, LLC, a leading U.S. pet insurance agency, released its annual list of the top 10 most popular dog and cat breeds enrolled with the agency in the state of California in 2014.
In the company’s 10 years of insuring dogs and cats, the top 10 most popular breeds have remained relatively consistent. However, the agency has noticed definite trends, with certain breeds gaining popularity and others falling in the rankings.
Warm weather and outdoor recreational areas make the Golden State a desirable place for small and large breed dogs. San Diego has more insured pets than any other city in the U.S. The most commonly insured dog breed in San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Jose, is the mixed breed dog. The city of Irvine’s most insured dog breed is the Labrador retriever.
With many major metropolitan areas, California is also home to many cat owning households. However, for every four canines insured with Pets Best in the state of California, one cat is insured.
Among the top cat breeds, domestic feline breeds include the domestic shorthair, domestic medium hair, domestic longhair and mixed breed cats.
