Dog Breeds
Non-Sporting Group

dog breeds

The non-sporting group classification of dogs is a very loose and confusing term to many. Some of the breeds in this group have been also classified as Pariahs - which translated has the meaning of outcast. However in the dog world, there is no stigma attached to this label. The Pariah group is thought of more as primitive dogs, or being derived from wild or primitive dogs.

From the Lhasa Apso to the Dalmatian, the non-sporting group of dogs are about as varied in physical appearance as they are in their backgrounds. In human terms such a group would be described as a very mixed bag!

Some of the non-sporting group dogs, such as the Chow Chows and Keeshond were originally utilized for their guarding and watchdog skills, though the Keeshond also is a good swimmer and has in the past been a ratter.

Others in this group, for example the Bulldog, was orginally bred to bait bulls as the name implies. Whereas, the Tibetan Terrier - not a terrier at all - was a good luck talisman raised in Tibetan monasteries and often given to travelers for favorable tidings on their journies, and the Bichon Frise was just born to be pampered!

The Dalmatian, aside from his Disney fame, once traveled along side the horse-drawn carriages providing protection to the passengers. He was also a help to firemen in those days as he had an affinity for working with horses.

The Poodle, a much-beloved and highly intelligent dog is an excellent swimmer and was once used as a retriever both in water and over land.

All of the dogs in this classification are rather unique and some of them are breeds not commonly seen out and about. Mostly, they are an alert and lively group and make fine companions. I'm sure you'll recognize many of your favorite breeds among them.
