The Fédération cynologique internationale (FCI) (English: World Canine Organization) is an international federation of a number of national kennel clubs. It is based in Thuin, Belgium.


The FCI was founded in 1911 by Germany, Austria, Belgium, France and the Netherlands, it was disbanded in World War I and recreated in 1921 by Belgium and France.[1]


The FCI divides breeds it recognises into ten groups based on various discriminators such as appearance or role:[2]

  1. Sheepdogs and cattle dogs (except Swiss cattle dogs)
  2. Pinschers and schnauzers - molossoid breeds - Swiss mountain and cattle dogs and other breeds
  3. Terriers
  4. Dachshunds
  5. Spitz and primitive types
  6. Scenthounds and related breeds
  7. Pointers and setters
  8. Retrievers - flushing dogs - water dogs
  9. Companion and toy dogs
  10. Sighthounds

The FCI has members, associates and partners in 98 countries,[3] but none in the United States, United Kingdom, or Canada.[4] The official purebred registries in the aforementioned three countries that are not members of FCI include the American Kennel Club (AKC) and United Kennel Club (UKC) in the US, The Kennel Club (KC) in the UK, and the Canadian Kennel Club (CKC) in Canada.
