A dog trainer has revealed his three least favorite dog breeds for work.
Adam, the director and self-confessed master trainer of the Southend Dog Training Company, explained that French Bulldogs, Cockapoos and German Shepherds are high on his list at the moment.
“The reason for that is because they’re all really, really cool dogs when they’re raised well,” he says in a clip shared on TikTok.
“But with the overbreeding of these dogs — they’re the top three most overbred dogs — I see a lot of messed up messes.”
He continues: “Dogs with a lot of anxiety, reaction disorders and allergies, in the German shepherd it’s rather bad joints, but definitely anxiety.
“In the Frenchie, reactivity to humans and allergies and cockapoos, it’s reactivity to humans.”
He goes on to say how his “heart sinks a little” because he almost always knows when pet owners say what’s wrong with their dog, it’s probably the result of poor breeding.
“Poor breeding is responsible for so many catastrophes in the canine world,” he explains.

“More needs to be done to take action against these people by just putting two dogs together to make a quick buck because almost every time it ends badly.”
The video has since gone viral, garnering over 51,000 views and multiple comments from pet owners across the country – many sharing their own experiences.
“I have to agree with you at GSD… and I work in pairs,” wrote one.
A second wrote: “I agree I have a lhaso/poo and she has a lot of issues but mostly hates men.”
A third commented: “GSD is my favorite but I totally agree. Hard work with problems, but the yields are incredible. Jack Russells is also the love of my life. You are great.”
Meanwhile, a fourth commented: “I have a German shepherd he is 6 now and is the greatest and is coming from good but I know what you mean would love another but be sceptical.”
And another added: “My parents had 3 Cockapoos from the same breeder – one died of cancer at the age of 1 and one was euthanized for being aggressive.”
