Parameters[change source]

  • name: Name of the breed (or landrace, crossbreed, hybrid, etc.). Should agree with article title (aside from any parenthetical disambiguation). Names of standardized breeds are capitalized (except after a hyphen). Those of landraces, mongrelized populations, etc., are not (except capitalize the first letter of the parameter value, and any proper names like geographical ones).
  • image: The name of the image (leave off Image:)
  • Check Commons for appropriate photos.
  • If you upload a new photo, make sure that both source and copyright are OK (e.g., name of photographer and GFDL) and add to the album.
  • Use the best breed photo available for the infobox image.
  • image_alt: Alternate text to describe an image to those that cannot see it.
  • If an image is included, alt text should be provided using image_alt. Alt text should not repeat the caption; instead, it should describe the image to someone who can't see it (see WP:ALT).
  • image_caption a.k.a. caption: A caption that describes the image.
  • Include a caption that mentions the coat-color, tail, ear, etc. variation and whether the dog is, for example, a puppy or nonstandard in other ways; Wikipedia standard now seems to be for full sentences, but if it's only a coat color variation we haven't been doing full sentences, just Blue merle Aussie or the like.
  • altname: Other names by which the breed is known by English speakers.
  • The list of names for the breed in the FCI standards is a good starting point; also can include common breed names from other English-speaking countries and kennel clubs. User:Sannse initially created a useful spreadsheet listing these known about for new articles (can also use Google search for English web sites for the possible breed names).
  • To specify more than one name, you must specify them all on one line separated by ,<br />
  • nickname: Common nicknames
  • These are shortened names that aren't an official breed name but that are in common use by owners or breeders of these dogs (e.g., "Doxie" for Dachshund; "GSD" for German Shepherd Dog).
  • As above, to specify more than one name, you must specify them all on one line separated by ,<br />
  • These are the breeds, landraces, or other populations from which the breed was developed, if any are known. May include a wild species or subspecies in the case of a canine hybrid that has been developed into a breed.
  • country: Country of origin, preferably at time of origin to avoid squabbling over current political boundaries.
  • Also available on the spreadsheet (or see breed's FCI listing – but be aware that the country listed may be the country responsible for the standard and not the true country of origin).
  • patronage: Country of patronage, according to the Article 2 Objectives, Section II, Paragraph g) of the Statutes of the Fédération Cynologique Internationale, used when no country of origin is responsible for the breed and in some other cases.
  • Traits
  • weight: The general weight range
  • maleweight: The weight range of males
  • femaleweight: The weight range of females
  • height: The general height range
  • maleheight: The height range of males
  • femaleheight: The height range of females
  • coat: The coat type
  • color or colour: Use one only not both. The color/colour as per Wikipedia:Manual of Style#National varieties of English.
  • litter_size: The range in size of a litter
  • life_span: The range in life span in years
  • Classification and breed standards
  • FCI standards; only the standard is required to enable this segment of the template.
  • fcigroup: The name of the group to which the dog belongs. (Hound, Working, etc..)
  • fcisection: The section number of the above group.
  • fcinum: The number of the dog breed.
  • fcistd: The URL to the FCI breed standard. There are several different ways to link to this; start looking here: http://www.fci.be/en/Nomenclature/
  • AKC standards; only the standard is required to enable this segment of the template.
An example for the Alaskan Malamute is: http://www.akc.org/breeds/alaskan_malamute/index.cfm
If the group is FSS, see preceding akcfss instructions.
  • ANKC standards; only the standard is required to enable this segment of the template.
  • ankcgroup: The number and name of the group to which the dog belongs. (Referring to the hound, etc. group)
Please put this in the format: Group NUMBER – (NAME)
  • CKC standards; only the standard is required to enable this segment of the template.
  • ckcgroup: The name of the group to which the dog belongs. (Hound, Working, etc..)
Please put this in the format: Group NUMBER – (NAME)
Note: This list may not be up-to-date.
But we can't list them as CKC-recognized without an actual source (this template documentation doesn't count).
  • ckcmisc: Add this if the breed is a part of the CKC's Miscellaneous List
  • KC (UK) standards; only the standard is required to enable this segment of the template.
  • NZKC standards; only the standard is required to enable this segment of the template.
  • UKC standards; only the standard is required to enable this segment of the template.
  • otherstd: Free-form field for adding names or acronyms of other registries, with links to their breed standards
  • notes: Free-form concise comments, usually about the breed recognition or standards. Some example uses:
    • Recognition by organizations (private or governmental) that do not issue breed standards, e.g.: "Recognized by the ARBA.
    • Major registries that refuse to recognize a breed recognized by most others, e.g.: "Not recognized by [linked acronym of conservative registry here]."
      • Briefly mentioning classification issues, e.g.: "Classified as just a variant of the [other breed named and linked here] by [linked acronym of conservative registry here]."
      • Showing unusual status limitations, e.g.: "Not eligible for championship status in linked acronym of conservative registry here] shows."
      • For landraces and other non-breed populations, can indicate what they are, e.g.: "Landrace.", or "Feral dog population.", or "Crossbreed, with provisional recognition as a breed in one major registry."
This parameter is not for breed-specific or local/regional clubs.
Special parameters

There are two special parameters that can be used in place of those relating to breed standards, above:

  • extinct=yes: Shows an "Extinct" message. This parameter should be removed if not used.
  • notrecognized=yes or notrecognised=yes: Shows a "Not recognized by any major kennel club." message. The |notrecognised=y version outputs the British Commonwealth English -ised spelling. This parameter (under either spelling) should be removed if a breed-standard parameter, above, is used. Also, if both spellings are accidentally included, the Commonwealth spelling will be used.
If a "notrecogni[s|z]ed" or "extinct" parameter is used, all URL fields should be removed. (A link to a former breed recognition document should be added as a regular source citation). This parameter should be used for: any breed, crossbreed, alleged breed, landrace, etc., for which no major international or national all-breeds organization publishes a breed standard. Breed specific clubs, local/regional clubs, and ARBA
