The Sheepdogs and Cattle Dogs Group is a designation used only by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale for a group of dog breeds consisting of Sheepdogs and Cattle dogs, except for Swiss Cattle Dogs.[1]

The Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) additionally divides groups into subgroups, which the other main English-speaking kennel clubs do not. The FCI Sheepdogs and Cattle Dogs Group is made up of two different sections:[1]

The FCI sorts the breeds in the group by section and country of origin as follows:[1]

Section 1 : Sheepdogs[edit]

Section 2 : Cattle Dogs[edit]

Breeds Provisionally Accepted[edit]

These breeds are not eligible for the CACIB in international dog shows and the FCI lists them separately under the section "Breeds Provisionally Accepted".[2] After having been long enough in the list, they will be qualified for the CACIB and removed to the corresponding group list.
