    It's "are," but not for the reason everyone else is saying.

    "Percent” is used with both singular and plural verbs. It usually takes a plural verb when followed by “of” plus a plural noun (like "of dogs"), and takes a singular verb when followed by “of” plus a singular noun ("of my hat").

    Dogs are plural (more than one), thus we use "ARE" not "IS"......
