The Non-Sporting Group of dogs is a kennel club dog breed Group designation. How Non-Sporting is defined varies among kennel clubs, and different kennel clubs may not include the same breeds in their Non-Sporting Group. Some kennel clubs do not use the Non-Sporting classification. Non-Sporting Group is not a term used by the international kennel club association, the Fédération Cynologique Internationale, which more finely divides its breed groupings by dog type and breed history.[1]

For the American Kennel Club and the Canadian Kennel Club, the Non-Sporting Group is a diverse classification. Here are sturdy animals with as different personalities and appearances as the Chow Chow, and Keeshond. The breeds in the Non-Sporting Group are a varied collection in terms of size, coat, personality and overall appearance.[2]
