Dog Breeds

There are currently 344 dog breeds registered with the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI), which is the largest canine registry in the world. In comparison, the American Kennel Club (AKC) currently recognizes 202 dog breeds. That’s not including all of the “provisional” breeds that have yet to be accepted into a registry. And let’s not forget all of the “designer” dogs, like Labradoodles and Puggles, that have become so popular over the years.

 

Dog breeds aside, what matters most about a canine companion is how compatible you are. This includes the dog’s personality, grooming needs, energy levels, size, and so much more. Whether you are looking for information about individual dog breeds, which are the best dog breeds, or what kind of dog is right for you, look no further.
