The Top 20 Medium Sized Dog Breeds

Medium sized dog breeds include a wide variety of types. They are usually grouped together by their weight range, and for most canine authorities, this is about 25 to 50 pounds. Though their weights may fall within this range, give or take a few pounds depending on breed, their appearances and personalities are decidedly different. Here’s a guide to the top 20, and what makes each breed one of the best. 

Shetland Sheepdog

The American Kennel Club lists the Shetland Sheepdog as one its popular medium-sized dog breeds. Shelties, as they are often called, are part of the Herding Group. They’re known for their extreme intelligence, their easiness to train, and their excellent ability to learn tricks. These playful dogs have won many international competitions in agility herding and obedience trials. They are top rated competitors in the show dog world, but they are very good playing with children and affectionate with their families. They look very much like working Collies, only much smaller in size. They can try to herd people, and they do like to chase things that are moving. They need plenty of exercise but must live in a well-fenced area if they become city dogs. They do like to bark, but tend to do so when strangers threaten their territory, so they are good for sounding an alert to danger.
