Dog groups

Which dog groups are there?

There are different possibilities of grouping dogs of a similar breed together. 
The question is always what is the main criteria.
For this reason no classification can really do any justice

The most well known and extensive classification was produced by
Federation Cynologique Internationale (FCI) (approx. 300 breeds).

We have also given the FCI-Number und FCI-Group with each breed of dog.
