2023 has been a big year for the canine industry. From new pet products and services to exciting developments in grooming techniques, there’s been no shortage of pet trends for dog owners to keep up with.

At Barkbus, we’ve also had our fair share of highlights this year! In addition to expanding to two new states — Arizona and Texas — we also teamed up with International Professional Groomers (IPG) to create a training program for our pet stylists. This collaboration has allowed us to provide even better grooming services for our furry clients while also upskilling and empowering our employees. In this article, we’ll dive into some of the major dog trends and developments in the canine world throughout 2023.

Dog Ownership Trends

The past year has seen some new and interesting dog trends related to dog ownership. One of the most heart-warming shifts is a growing interest in senior dogs. More people are choosing to adopt older dogs rather than just puppies. There could be a few reasons for this, including people perhaps realizing that senior dogs can make just as loving and loyal companions, or maybe a greater awareness of the challenges faced by senior dogs in shelters. Either way, it’s great to see older pups finding forever homes!

Popular Dog Breeds in 2023

When it comes to 2023 pet trends, the French Bulldog rose fast in the American Kennel Club’s rankings, claiming the top spot among the most popular dog breeds. This ended the Labrador Retriever’s 31-year reign! Known for their compact build and adaptable nature, they’re particularly good for apartment living​​.
