So, I don't think that it's a really big problem, but someone might. I noticed that one of my breeds is in a different group category than what the AKC has it placed in. How are the categories divided? Just out of curiousity. Like I said, it doesn't matter to me either way.

What breed?

It may have been added to SD before the AKC recognized it so they chose the closest group per other international KCs.

SD is based on a loose mixture of FCI, UKC, and AKC.

So somethings maybe slightly altered based on which canine organization you are used to.

Spanish Water Dogs are in the herding group in the AKC, which I was surprised to find out, I thought they would be in the Sporting group, which they are in SD. But they were only recognized by the AKC starting in 2015.

Did you know?
Judges are generally certified to judge one or several breeds, usually in the same group, but a few "all-breed" judges have the training and experience to judge large numbers of breeds.
