The Toy Group is a designation used by most all-breed dog registries (or Kennel clubs) for a group of dog breeds consisting of the smallest of breeds. The list of dogs in this group is largely the same across the major English-speaking Kennel clubs—AKC, ANKC, CKC, KC(UK), NKC, UKC, and NZKC.

The FCI designates the Companion and Toy Group as group 9, ANKC designates as group 1, and the CKC as group n; the UKC calls it the Companion Group instead of the Toy Group.
