AKC Dog Breed Group Table  http://www.akc.org

Sporting Group  http://www.akc.org/breeds/sporting_group.cfm
Naturally active and alert, Sporting dogs make likeable, well-rounded companions. Members of the Group include pointers, retrievers, setters and spaniels. Remarkable for their instincts in water and woods, many of these breeds actively continue to participate in hunting and other field activities. Potential owners of Sporting dogs need to realize that most require regular, invigorating exercise.

Hound Group  http://www.akc.org/breeds/hound_group.cfm
Most hounds share the common ancestral trait of being used for hunting. Some use acute scenting powers to follow a trail. Others demonstrate a phenomenal gift of stamina as they relentlessly run down quarry. Beyond this, however, generalizations about hounds are hard to come by, since the Group encompasses quite a diverse lot. There are Pharaoh Hounds, Norwegian Elkhounds, Afghans and Beagles, among others. Some hounds share the distinct ability to produce a unique sound known as baying. You'd best sample this sound before you decide to get a hound of your own to be sure it's your cup of tea.

Working Group  http://www.akc.org/breeds/working_group.cfm
Dogs of the Working Group were bred to perform such jobs as guarding property, pulling sleds and performing water rescues. They have been invaluable assets to man throughout the ages. The Doberman Pinscher, Siberian Husky and Great Dane are included in this Group, to name just a few. Quick to learn, these intelligent, capable animals make solid companions. Their considerable dimensions and strength alone, however, make many working dogs unsuitable as pets for average families. And again, by virtue of their size alone, these dogs must be properly trained.

Terrier Group  http://www.akc.org/breeds/terrier_group.cfm
People familiar with this Group invariably comment on the distinctive terrier personality. These are feisty, energetic dogs whose sizes range from fairly small, as in the Norfolk, Cairn or West Highland White Terrier, to the grand Airedale Terrier. Terriers typically have little tolerance for other animals, including other dogs. Their ancestors were bred to hunt and kill vermin. Many continue to project the attitude that they're always eager for a spirited argument. Most terriers have wiry coats that require special grooming known as stripping in order to maintain a characteristic appearance. In general, they make engaging pets, but require owners with the determination to match their dogs' lively characters.

Toy Group  http://www.akc.org/breeds/toy_group.cfm
The diminutive size and winsome expressions of Toy dogs illustrate the main function of this Group: to embody sheer delight. Don't let their tiny stature fool you, though - - many Toys are tough as nails. If you haven't yet experienced the barking of an angry Chihuahua, for example, well, just wait. Toy dogs will always be popular with city dwellers and people without much living space. They make ideal apartment dogs and terrific lap warmers on nippy nights. (Incidentally, small breeds may be found in every Group, not just the Toy Group. We advise everyone to seriously consider getting a small breed, when appropriate, if for no other reason than to minimize some of the problems inherent in canines such as shedding, creating messes and cost of care. And training aside, it's still easier to control a ten-pound dog than it is one ten times that size.)

Non-Sporting Group  http://www.akc.org/breeds/non-sporting_group.cfm
Non-sporting dogs are a diverse group. Here are sturdy animals with as different personalities and appearances as the Chow Chow, Dalmatian, French Bulldog, and Keeshond. Talk about differences in size, coat, and visage! Some, like the Schipperke and Tibetan Spaniel are uncommon sights in the average neighborhood. Others, however, like the Poodle and Lhasa Apso, have quite a large following. The breeds in the Non-Sporting Group are a varied collection in terms of size, coat, personality and overall appearance.

Herding Group  http://www.akc.org/breeds/herding_group.cfm
The Herding Group, created in 1983, is the newest AKC classification; its members were formerly members of the Working Group. All breeds share the fabulous ability to control the movement of other animals. A remarkable example is the low-set Corgi, perhaps one foot tall at the shoulders, that can drive a herd of cows many times its size to pasture by leaping and nipping at their heels. The vast majority of Herding dogs, as household pets, never cross paths with a farm animal. Nevertheless, pure instinct prompts many of these dogs to gently herd their owners, especially the children of the family. In general, these intelligent dogs make excellent companions and respond beautifully to training exercises.

Miscellaneous Class  http://www.akc.org/breeds/miscellaneous_class.cfm
The breeds currently eligible to participate in the Miscellaneous Class are still enrolled in the AKC Foundation Stock Service®. FSS® enrollment is maintained until the AKC Board of Directors accepts the breed for regular status.

Authorities acknowledge that throughout the world there are several hundred distinct breeds of purebred dogs, not all of which are AKC recognized breeds. Those officially recognized for AKC registration appear in the Stud Book of the American Kennel Club. The AKC provides for a regular path of development for a new breed, which may result in that breed’s full recognition and appearance in the official Stud Book as an AKC recognized breed.
Briefly stated, the requirement for admission to the Stud Book is clear and categorical proof that a substantial, sustained nationwide interest and activity in the breed exists. This includes an active parent club, with serious and expanding breeding activity over a wide geographic area.
When in the judgment of the Board of Directors such interest and activity exists, a breed is admitted to the Miscellaneous Class. Breeds in the Miscellaneous Class may compete and earn titles in Companion Events and also select Performance Events. Miscellaneous breeds are also eligible to compete in Junior Showmanship. They may also compete at conformation shows, but here are limited to competition in the Miscellaneous Class and are not eligible for championship points.
When the Board of Directors is satisfied that a breed is continuing a healthy, dynamic growth in the Miscellaneous Class, it may be admitted to registration in the Stud Book and the opportunity to compete in regular classes.

FCI Dog Breed Group Table  http://www.fci.be/
The Fédération Cynologique Internationale is the World Canine Organisation. It includes 83 members and contract partners (one member per country) that each issue their own pedigrees and train their own judges. The FCI makes sure that the pedigrees and judges are mutually recognised by all the FCI members.
The FCI recognises 339 breeds, Each of them is the 'property' of a specific country. The 'owner' countries of the breeds write the standard of these breeds (description of the ideal type of the breed), in co-operation with the Standards and Scientific Commissions of the FCI, and the translation and updating are carried out by the FCI. These standards are in fact the reference on which the judges base themselves when judging in shows held in the FCI member countries; they are THE reference assisting the breeders in their attempt to produce top-quality dogs.
Every member country conducts international shows (conformation shows) as well as working/hunting trials and tests, as well as races/coursing. Results are sent to the FCI office where they are processed. When a dog has been awarded a certain number of awards, it is eligible to receive the title of International Beauty, Show or Working Champion. These titles are confirmed by the FCI.

Question -- how come the Shih-Tzu is part of the TOY GROUP in American Kennel Club and yet it is grouped under NON-SPORTING in PCCI? Which is the correct grouping?

 off topic  But will try to answer this so people don't get mixed up...

AKCUPI and PCCI are both dog registration bodies in the Philippines. But I don't think they are affiliated with each other. And you cannot have a dog that is registered with both organizations.
I have heard that if you have a dog that has acquired titles in PCCI sanctioned dog shows and you enter him in an AKCUPI show/event, that dog may end up being stripped of its titles by PCCI. I have also heard that there may be some complications with breeding programs using a PCCI registered stud with an AKCUPI registered dam (or vice versa) because you'll have a difficult time registering the puppies with the PCCI.

From the PCCI site:
As a federal member of the Federation Cynologique Internationale (FCI), an international organization of registering bodies based in Brussels, Belgium, PCCI is the only accredited registering body in the Philippines for purebred dogs. PCCI documents are recognized by the national registry organizations in all FCI-member countries and in the United States, by the American Kennel Club (AKC) and Canada by the Canadian Kennel Club. PCCI is also one of the original members of the Asian Kennel Union (AKU) based in Tokyo, Japan.

AKCUPI (Asian Kennel Club Union of the Philippines) is totally different from the AKC (American Kennel Club) and the AKU (Asian Kennel Union) - although because of the acronym AKCUPI, some people have gotten confused and assumed that they are either the AKC, the AKU, or are affiliated with the AKC & AKU (they are not).
The AKCUPI is affiliated with the Federación Canina Internacional (FCI) [which is totally different from the Federation Cynologique Internationale (FCI)] and the Kennel Club Union of Asia (KCUA) [which is totally different from the Asian Kennel Union (AKU)]. Again, because of the similarity of the acronyms of the AKCUPI affiliated organizations FCI & KCUA, this has led to some confusion. I think this has been made more confusing by the fact that the AKCUPI website does not explain the difference between the organizations with similar acronyms on their website and on the PCCI website - and in that sense, they have sort of contributed to the confusion (even I was a bit confused at first).

Having said that, having more than one kennel club isn't something exclusive to the Philippines - there are countries with multiple kennel clubs that are also affiliated with different international organizations. And in the end, it's up to the dog owner to decide which one they would want to be affiliated with - but do your research first before you decide.

 scratch  Maybe PCCI grouped the shih tzus in the non-sporting group because they didn't want the lhasa apsos to get lonely?  scratch
Sa totoo lang, hindi ko alam...  Grin 
But under the FCI classification, shih tzus and lhasa apsos are both classified under "Companion and Toy Dogs - Tibet" - so maybe that's the classification that  PCCI followed?
