DOG BREEDS

dog breeds

(AUTOMATIC TRANSLATION)

It is not easy to know how many different dog breeds there are in the world.

The most official approach is that given by the canine world body of the FCI (Internacional Cinológic Federación), which estimates that there are 344 breeds (in year 2017) of different dogs on our planet.

However, scientists recognize that the number of dog breeds grows each year, and that it could be higher.

However, scientists recognize that the number of dog breeds grows each year, and that it could be higher.

The number of dog breeds grows every year, and although their current official number is 344, the researchers admit that there could be many more.

How many different dog breeds are there in the world? This question may not be as simple to answer as it seems. The first difficulty arises when one traces the different national canine federations in search of an answer and verifies that not all varieties of dogs are accepted as differentiated races in all associations.

However, when it comes to dog breeds, there is an international body recognized as a world reference institution in these gene issues: the FCI (Federación Cinológica Internacional). This entity states that there is a total of 344 (year 2017) breeds of dogs on our planet and classifies them into ten groups.

Group 1: Shepherd dogs and oxen.

Group 2: pinscher and schnauzer dogs. Molosoids (shepherds), mountain and Swiss oxen.

Group 3: Terriers.

Group 4: Teckels.

Group 5: Spitz type dogs and primitive type.

Group 6: Bloodhound and sniffer dogs.

Group 7: Sample dogs.

Group 8: Catchers, lifters and water.

Group 9: Company dogs

Group 10: Sighthounds

 
In search of the dog breeds of the planet

Then, the current number of dog breeds officially recognized is 344 (year 2017). However, just a year ago this figure was 339. "We can estimate the number of different breeds of dogs in the world, but we will always be accepting that their actual number is probably greater than we think", warns researcher Stanley Coren , from the University of Vancouver (Canada), one of the world's leading experts on dogs.
