Dog Information

London Dog Walking Guide to Dog Breeds

london dog breedDog information is often based on either the breed or type of dog.

There are far more dog breeds than cat breeds, by a factor of 6, with around 500 dog breeds and only 80 or so cat breeds. They vary in size from the smallest breed, the Chihuahua. There is also the teacup Chihuahua, which is smaller, but it is not recognised by most kennel clubs (or in the list below!).

The tallest breed is the Irish Wolfhound, alhough the tallest individual dog in the Guinness Book of Records was a Great Dane called Gibson who was 42.2 inches high.

london dog informationDog breeds are normally grouped according to their function, type of work (generally historically) or the ancestral form from which they are descendants.

Groups include, Companion dogs, Guard dogs, Hunting dogs, Pariah dogs (primitive dogs), Pastoral dogs and Sledge dogs.

The International “Fédération Cynologique Internationale” group of 84 countries have grouped the breeds into 10 groups to help international competition. Increasingly, with the UK changes to dog immigration laws and the passport scheme, these competitions are being won by foreign dogs. The dog groups are:

Group 1 Sheepdogs and Cattle Dogs (except Swiss Cattle Dogs)
Section 1: Sheepdog
Section 2: Cattle Dogs (except Swiss Cattle Dogs)
