Non-Sporting Group General Information

The Non-Sporting Group is perhaps the most diverse of all of the American Kennel Club classifications of dog breed groups. The group exists because the AKC decided these breeds did not fit nicely into any of the other breed groups.

This group is also referred to as the Utility Group. The breeds in this group vary greatly in size, appearance and personality. All breeds are considered not only sturdy animals, but wonderful purebred dogs.

There are many well known dog breeds that belong to this group, including the Standard Poodle, the Dalmatian, and the Bulldog. Some of the lesser known breeds are the Schipperke, the Shiba Inu, and the Tibetan Terrier.
