Breeds of Dog: Utility Group

The Utility group is a collection of dogs each bred for a specific function, but which don't fit into any of the other breed groups. They are generally speaking non-sporting (ie not bred for hunting) and might not have been bred for the same or similar purposes as each other.

Some examples of Utility dogs are listed below, or you can visit the Kennel Club's website for more information. 

Please also remember that every dog is an individual and both genetic and environmental factors affect their temperament.
