A recent survey, conducted on an array of dogs all over Britain, has shown what dogs are the naughtiest, and what name you should avoid giving your dog if you're wanting a nice one.
Apparently, dogs named 'Max' are the ones that cause the most mischief, and will find themselves in the dog-box more often than not for chewing shoes and causing general mayhem.
The breeds that are the naughtiest start with a humble Jack Russell.
Even though the cute little balls of energy look like they couldn't hurt a fly, four out of ten owners won't leave them alone in the house in fear of everything being chewed.
Labradors also feature on the list, for the same reason - their abundance of energy makes them a threat to everything in a house.
But before we name and shame every breed, here are some stats...
Last year, pet insurance companies paid out over $10 million NZD to owners in the UK alone for dogs that had swallowed foreign objects, and close to five million for pooches that had been poisoned after eating a forbidden item.
So without further ado, here are the ten naughtiest dog breeds:
- Jack Russell
- Cocker Spaniel
- Staffordshire Bull Terrier
- Border Collie
- Golden Retriever
- Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
- German Sheppard
- Yorkshire Terrier
