How many different kinds of dogs are there?

It is estimated that there are over 400 recognised breeds of dog in the world combined from the Kennel Club (KC) of Great Britain and the American Kennel Club (AKC), but this does not take into account the various mixed breed dogs that are rapidly being bread and given a breed name.

Mixed breed dogs make up a huge percentage of the dogs in the world, so it is really impossible to give an accurate number, due to the amount of new breeds being introduced all the time.

For more information, we recommend you visit either the Kennel Club (KC) of Great Britain or the American Kennel Club (AKC).
