She’s back on top at 24 dogs, with Charlie falling to second at 21. Daisy, Poppy, Lucy, Luna, Scout, Max, Penny and Rosie round out the Top 10 names in the district.

Oak Bay tracks both breeds and names of its registered pups, required for those over four months old.

The force of the labrador remains strong in Oak Bay, taking the top two breeds of dog registered in the district. The most-owned dog is the lovable lab at 70 with the second-most the labradoodle at 59. Mixed breeds round out third.

Golden retriever, 48, golden doodle, 45, havens, 36, German shepherd, 22, chihuahua and French bulldog, 17 and the border collie at 16 round out the Top 10.

The animal control bylaw requires all dog owners to obtain a licence for pets and a “poop and scoop” law is in effect throughout the municipality.
