I think my golden is sporting...Gun Dog, AKA Sporting. Altho they could easily fit in to the working catagory. :lovestruck:

Goldens? NAH, they're lapdogs!!

Both mine are retrievers, Duck Toller and Golden, so I guess they're hunting dogs/ gun dogs? I have a sneaky feeling a sudden gun shot would freak themout though!

It was old, but I thought it would be good to put the info out there.

It's amazing how many people don't know and therefore don't realize how much this affects their dogs behavior and personality. Working and sport dogs need to be kept busy working....herding dogs herd...gaurd dogs guard..

Well, let's see - I have two Goldens - one is definitely in the sporting/working dog group (Amber) and Bobby, well, Bobby fits in more with the monks in Tibet than with any dog grouping out there :D

Karma is newly considered a "Working" group breed (Tibetan Mastiff)

Your dogs are hilariously cute. :cloud9:

Oh Bobby - why don't you come live here and I will send Dazy to live with Amber...

Karma...so cute, what are Tibetan Mastiff bred for traditionally??

Question, if they are called non-sporting, then what are they? They could have come up with a better catagory name then non-sporting??? Geez....

They were bred as Guardians, live stock and land guardians also used as guardians of Tibetan monasteries
They are known as "Do-Khyi" which translates to "tied dog"

Very old and "primitave" breed that oddly only comes into season once a year.

Actually I don't know if she is a working breed she is an American Alaunt Mastiff, and she is just becoming a recognized breed but I am guessing she is a working breed.

the border collie is a brilliant working dog and a great part of the aussie cattle dog (blue heeler)i believe. smart sheep/cattle dogs!

Mine is not recognized, being a mixed breed.

His Pug part is a "toy" breed under CKC & AKC groupings, and a "companion" breed under UKC groupings.

His Beagle part is a "hound" or "scenthound" in all the KC's.

what gruop does a german shepherd fit into?

Jewels&Casey
May 24th, 2008, 09:39 PM
Both Jewels and Casey are herding dogs.

Funny thing is the different ways they go about it. Whenever we go out for our walks, Casey will go into a stalking position when she meets new people. Jewels doesn't. Jewels normally backs off when people approach but will circle the group.

Jewels doesn't care much for chasing after a ball but will chase after the dogs who are chasing the ball and then bring them back in by nipping at their heels. ;)

Suki would be in Non-Sporting as she is a Shiba Inu, and since she is a mix, Matilda would be in the Terrier group (being part Rat Terrier, although CKC doesn't recognize the breed), Sporting because I think she has Lab in her, and who knows what else :)

I have just confirmed with a American Bulldog breeder that Clark is definitely an AB.

Jaida the GSD would be in the Herding Group and Gracie would probably be a mix of Herding (Collie) and Terrier Groups, if we are even close to right about what Gracie's mixes are.

Jaida could also be in the "big crybaby sucky pants" Group and Gracie could be in the "stubborn-and-too-smart-for-her-own-good royal pain in the patootie" group:D
