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

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 sorting the breeds by type and country of origin, as shown below.[1]

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.
