— -- The American Kennel Club has revealed the top five dog breeds in the nation.

Gina DiNardo, vice president of the American Kennel Club, introduced the top breeds of 2015 on “Good Morning America” this morning beginning with No. 5: the happy-go-lucky Beagle.

"The best barker in the bunch,” DiNardo said. “It’s a true hound dog, will follow his nose wherever he goes…they’re friendly, they get along great with kids, other dogs and they’re easy to groom.”

The No. 4 spot went to the Bulldog and holding down the No. 3 spot was the devoted Golden Retriever.

Second place went to the extremely loyal German Shepherd and the "Most Popular Pup" trophy was awarded to the Labrador Retriever.

“[Labs are] athletic, they’re easy to train,” DiNardo said. “People just love them [and] they’re great with families.”

Labs are the No. 1 dog breed for the 25th consecutive year, according to the AKC.
