Dear Readers,

2014 is drawing to an end. It was a successful year, with great achievements for the FCI and for dogs worldwide.

2015 will be a challenging year for our Federation. We are indeed faced with anti-canine legislations and different issues that might badly affect our beloved 4-paw friends. However, I am convinced that, working together, the FCI team, all over the world, will succeed in overcoming those difficulties, for the benefit of dogs worldwide.

We would like to draw our fans’ attention on the fact that our Facebook page is under no circumstances any official organ of the FCI and may not supersede the official communication means with the FCI, i.e. e-mails, post or phone calls. Facebook is a social network on which the FCI created a page for exchanges and freedom of expression. However, this page is not the official FCI webpage, as the FCI official website is

The only messages which can be considered as official are those published by the FCI Facebook administrator. The FCI is not responsible for messages published by people using the FCI Facebook page; the users themselves are the only ones responsible for the content and the authenticity of their words. We appeal to the users’ critical sense towards those messages.

On the other hand, the FCI regularly visits its Facebook page, feeling concerned about the opinion of its regular users, whom the FCI works for every day. The FCI, whenever it is necessary, publishes official communications on this page and/or its official website. Under no circumstances, the FCI replies or reacts to each message published on its Facebook page, once again because it is a forum for informal exchanges.

We remind that anybody wishing to bring any fact to the attention of the FCI can do it by post, by e-mail, by phone through our official communication means. We suggest you to visit our website, which will provide you the answer to a great majority of your possible questions. Would you not find the answer even in our regulations and official publications available on our website, we suggest you to turn to the national canine organisation member of the FCI which is responsible for the concerned matter (e.g. breeders, pedigrees, etc.). The contact details of our members are available on our website

As a last resort, the whole team of the FCI office of course stays at your disposal to guide you.
