FCI( Fédération Cynologique Internationale)--世界犬业联盟，成立于1911年，已有近百年的历史，总部位于比利时，是目前世界上最大的犬业组织。最初由比、法、德、奥、荷五国联合创立，现已具有84个成员机构，这些机构都保留有自己的特性，但都归属于FCI统一管理，并且使用共同的积分制度。FCI目前承认世界上337品种的犬类并将其所有认可的纯种犬分为10个组别，其中每个组别又按产地和用途划分出不同的类别。
The Fédération Cynologique Internationale is the World Canine Organisation. It includes 87 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 343 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.
In addition, via the national canine organisation and the FCI, every breeder can ask for international registration of his/her kennel name.
Eventually, the FCI keeps a list of all the judges appointed by its different members.
