A dog trainer has candidly revealed the six breeds that she would never want to own.

Kiley, from Virginia Beach, took to TikTok to share her least favorite types of pooch as well as the reasons why.

But her full list of those to be avoided, which includes chow chows and beagles, might surprise you.

The six dog breeds that Kiley would avoid 

  • Siberian husky 
  • Beagle 
  • Australian cattle dog
  • Pug
  • Chow chow 
  • Akita 

In the clip, which has been viewed more than 440,000 times, Kiley faces the camera before launching into her list using a voiceover.

She starts with the Siberian husky, saying: ‘Please stop making noise. Training you is impossible. 

‘No stop talking back please.’

Next is the beagle. Explaining the reasons why, the video reveals: ‘Mindless. Like trying to train a stuffed animal. 

‘Just smell the ground to find a new owner.’

The Australian cattle dog is next on Kiley’s no-go list because they ‘infamously have many problematic behaviors and you need to work a lot.’

But she does not stop there.

Kiley then reveals that pugs are also on the list, stating: ‘You can’t breathe. 

‘I can’t do anything with you – any small breed or dogs who have health issues from flat faces.’

Moving on to the Chow Chow, the trainer candidly reveals: ‘I’m just not a fan. Cat-like dogs are not my jam. You have a weird purple tongue lol.’

Last but not least Kiley turns her attention to the Akita.

Kiley reveals: ‘I just don’t like dogs who genetically have dog aggression. Too independent and cat-like.’

Kiley, who owns Ki's K-9 Dog Training, has been a trainer for more than three years after 'realizing that untrained dogs are the norm'

Anticipating backlash, she uploaded the clip alongside a caption that read: ‘Don’t get butthurt, my breed isn’t for everyone either. But Pugs are a hard no.’

In reality, the three least popular breeds of dog in the US in 2022 were actually the Sloughi, Norwegian Lundehund, and English Foxhound, according to the American Kennel Club.

Speaking about her career as a trainer, Kiley wrote on her website: ‘I have a rescue German shepherd who was rehomed three times before coming to live with me, and that was definitely a life changing experience that eventually led me to professionally training dogs, after fully educating myself on dog behavior.’

She added: ‘I started training dogs after working with them for years and realizing that untrained dogs are the norm, and trained dogs were few and far between.’
