Project description

An analysis of dog breeds popularity in 2000-2017, based on statistics provided by the largest Kennel club in Russia.
It shows that in the early 2000s people preferred large dangerous looking dogs like Rottweiler or Central Asian Shepherd Dog. But then fashion has changed. Now Russian cities are full of smaller breeds: Spitz dogs, Yorkshire Terriers, Chihuahua. They are not only cute but also need less space which is essential for people living in small apartments.

It also turns out that movies drive popularity for some breeds like Husky shown in the Game of Thrones.
