Below is a list of dog breeds. As far as possible, the list is classified thematically according to the subdivision used by the international kennel club Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI). The FCI divides the breeds into ten breed groups. Breeds not recognized by the FCI are placed below in an additional group.
Any further division of a recognized variety into ‘variety groups’ is indented. When variety groups are defined, usually only dogs from the same group may be bred. In fact, the variety group then takes the place of the dog breed. In total there are 356 dog breeds recognized by the FCI. These dog breeds are divided into a number of types.
Breed group 1: Shepherd dogs and herders
