Laravel: How to get last N entries from DB


I have table of dogs in my DB and I want to retrieve N latest added dogs.

Only way that I found is something like this:

Dogs:all()->where(time, <=, another_time);

Is there another way how to do it? For example something like this Dogs:latest(5);

Thank you very much for any help 🙂


You may try something like this:

$dogs = Dogs::orderBy('id', 'desc')->take(5)->get();

Use orderBy with Descending order and take the first n numbers of records.

Update (Since the latest method has been added):

$dogs = Dogs::latest()->take(5)->get();
