A new report using TikTok data has been released by credit card comparison site Money.co.uk, revealing which breeds of dog are receiving the most video views on the social channel.
The video-sharing app TikTok has become hugely popular in the past couple of years, with millions of people using it to get their daily fix of the internet’s favourite commodity – cute dog videos. In fact, there have been well over 120 billion views of dog videos on TikTok to date…but it seems some dog breeds are much more popular than others.
The top 12 most popular dog breeds on TikTok have clocked up more than one BILLION video views each, but there’s one pup who is the clear leader of the pack.
The golden retriever takes the biscuit as the most-watched dog breed on TikTok with 9.2 billion views, that’s nearly five billion views more than the second most popular TikTok dog, the German shepherd. In third place, the Chihuahua takes bronze, beating pugs, poodles and pomeranians.
The most viewed dog videos on TikTok according to breed hashtags are:
1. Golden retriever
2. German shepherd
7. French Bulldog
10. Great Dane
11. Siberian husky
13. Border collie
16. Chow chow
17. Shih tzu
18. Australian shepherd
20. Bernese mountain dog.
Another report by Money.co.uk revealed that as well as being popular on TikTok, people also love to show their love for pugs in a much more permanent fashion, revealing them to be the most tattooed dog breed!
The Pomeranian, in sixth place, is also the breed of one of the most famous dogs on social media in the world – Jiff Pom, who started his social career on Instagram, is now on TikTok with no less than 20 million followers and more than 500 million likes for his videos.
Husky videos are also wildly popular on TikTok, and one (or rather two) in particular have captured the hearts of Tik Tok users. Kieran and Yasmin, both Alaskan Klee Kai have more than 2.5 million followers and could be earning up to £1,088 per post according to a TikTok earnings calculator.
In fact, with dog videos being so hugely popular on TikTok, there is potential to earn thousands from your pup’s account. The report reveals that dogs with around 200,000 followers can earn between around £70 and £108 a post – and if you achieve more than a million engaged followers, your pup could be bringing in upwards of £725 per post.
