Wikipedia:WikiProject Dog breeds/General

I've been looking at including a table similar in format to those on some of the other Wikiprojects. There is a nonsense version on User:Sannse/Sandbox. What do you think?

I think the table looks good and is a good idea. matt

Probably a good idea, but there are many breeds these days outside the historical AKC/CKC/FCI/KC breed lists, and many independent registries. We need an "Other" class to accomodate those breeds. Also, folks, "Classification" has two S's (misspelt in the Sannse/Sandbox tables and below). Ditkoofseppala 00:06 1 Jul 2003 (UTC)

Yes, we certainly do need an "other" group. I have a list of 356 dogs recognised by the FCI or other major listings, and another 160 breeds not recognised by them (and I will have missed a few of course). So far I haven't listed those 160 on the list of dog breeds, I thought it better to work on the 356 first and then go through looking more closely at the rest.

The "clasification" was my silly mistake :) I corrected it in most places a while back - I missed my sandbox and here. Thanks for catching that, I'll go fix it now. -- sannse 11:45 1 Jul 2003 (UTC)

Also, I think the Federation Cynologique Internationale (FIC) classifications will be most useful. They seem to cover more types of dog than any others and although the UK, US and Canadian Kennel Clubs aren't members 80 other countries are. Eventually we could split the List of dog breeds into the ten groups as well as having an overall alphabetical list.

For reference the FCI groups are:

  • Group 1: Sheepdogs and Cattle Dogs (except Swiss Cattle Dogs)
  • Group 2: Pinscher and Schanuzer - Molossoid breeds - Swiss Mountain and Cattle Dogs and other breeds
  • Group 3: Terriers
  • Group 4: Dachshunds
  • Group 5: Spitz and primitive types
  • Group 6: Scenthounds and related breeds
  • Group 7: Pointing Dogs
  • Group 8: Retrievers - Flushing Dogs - Water Dogs
  • Group 9: Companion and Toy Dogs
  • Group 10: Sighthounds

The US groups are:

  • Sporting Group
  • Hound Group
  • Working Group
  • Terrier Group
  • Toy Group
  • Non-Sporting Group
  • Herding Group
  • Miscellaneous

The UK groups are

  • Hound
  • Working
  • Terrier
  • Gundog
  • Pastoral
  • Utility
  • Toy
