The Spitz and Primitive Types Group is a designation used, only by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI), for a group of dog breeds consisting of Spitz Type Dogs and Primitive Type Dogs.

FCI additionally divides groups into subgroups, which the other main English-speaking kennel clubs do not. The FCI Spitz and Primitive Types Group is made up of eight different sections sorting the breeds by type and country of origin, as shown below.

Section 1 : Nordic Sled Dogs[edit]

Section 2 : Nordic Hunting Dogs[edit]

Section 3 : Nordic Watchdogs and Herding Dogs[edit]

Section 4 : European Spitz[edit]

Section 5 : Asian Spitz and Related Breeds[edit]

Section 6 : Primitive Types[edit]

Section 7 : Primitive Types - Hunting 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".[1] After having been long enough in the list, they will be qualified for the CACIB and removed to the corresponding group list.

Section 5: Asian Spitz and Related Breeds[edit]
