Signature Canadian Breeds and Pet Names

In our continuing celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday, we’re taking a road trip across the country to check out signature Canadian breeds and pet names. While we’ve looked at a few signature breeds in Canadian cities before, this time we’re diving deep into each province.

Signature Canadian breeds or pet names are not necessarily the most popular, but the most distinct. This means that based on Trupanion’s data these names and breeds are seen with a higher frequency in these provinces than the rest of Canada.
