History

Originally from Poland, country to which it owes its current name, the Polish Hound it is a very old breed of dog, since it is believed that it appeared in the 13th century, although the first written records that mention it explicitly date from the 17th century. They are part of the group “Medium-sized Hounds” and it is believed that they are the result of the crossing between the St. Hubert Hound, German and Russian hounds and local Polish breeds. Polish nobles, fans of hunting parties, they were bred and used especially for hunting larger game.

Since the middle of the 19th century, the Polish Hound, which was very popular at that time, began to appear in dog shows in his native country. At that time, Poland was under Russian occupation, and the breed was bred mainly in the territory of present-day Belarus, which was then also annexed by Russia. After 1918, Poland regained its independence, but the breeding of the Polish Hound continued almost exclusively in the east of the country.

During World War II, due to successive invasions of Poland by Nazi Germany and then by the USSR, the breed saw its population decrease dramatically. After the war, Polish borders were redrawn; Poland, by losing the territories he owned in the east, lost the cradle of Polish Hound as well as all the remaining farms. No breeder seized the territory of the “new” Poland, and the race found itself on the brink of extinction.

She was eventually saved by a Polish colonel named Piotr Kartawik.. In 1959, created a kennel dedicated to him and reconstituted livestock from 4 dogs imported from Belarus. The first standard of the Polish Hound was written on the basis of individuals from this kennel and published in 1964.

The breed was officially recognized by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) two years later, in 1966. However, the Polish Hound is not recognized by any other major canine organization and, although once again it is very widespread in Poland, still relatively rare in the rest of the world.

    Character and skills

    The Polish Hound he is an affectionate dog, protective and very intelligent. And unlike most Poles and other hunting dogs, who are notoriously undisciplined and not very obedient, do not pose major training problems. This character trait makes them equally appreciated by hunters and families, as is the case with your neighbor, the Austrian Black and Tan Hound, a rare but obedient and easy to train breed that is also an exception. However, the Polish Hound tends to mature a little more slowly than other dogs, so it can be expected that he will maintain his youthful demeanor at 2 or 3 years of age.

    Naturally calm and friendly, they are excellent companions, loyal as much as possible, showing affection not only to adults, but also to younger dogs. Not only is he loving, kind and protective with them, but he is also very patient. In this way, a great complicity can be created between the dog and the child, since the latter learns from a young age to respect the animal and its needs. The Polish Hound It, therefore, a breed of dog adapted to children, even the very young.

    Reputed for being naturally vigilant and distrustful of strangers, without being aggressive, the Polish Hound develops protective instincts with age, leading him to actively defend those around him, whether they are the weakest, the youngest or the oldest. Facing intruders and armed with your unerring sense of smell, Polish hounds make excellent watchdogs, protecting without fail their masters and their properties, even though they weren't bred for it.

    They are sociable animals and generally enjoy the company of other dogs. Can sometimes become a barker in your presence, without being prone to arguing with peers. His voice is powerful, melodious cases, and allows you to communicate with your master while hunting. The voice is deep in the male and quite high in the female.

    To the Polish Hound loves large expanses and wooded areas where he can fully express his hunting instincts. Not at all suited to apartment living, and is much more comfortable in the country than in the city.

    Developed for hunting and used to living in large spaces, must be walked for a long time and very regularly (on average two or three hours a day), even if you have access to a large garden. The ideal thing for him is to be able to accompany an active teacher during his exercises: footing, running and other sports outings will make you happy. On the other hand, if not asked enough, expect a long and frequent bark, meant to get attention.

    Education

    An obedient and intelligent breed, the Polish Hound it is relatively easy to train, since he is intelligent and quite obedient. They have a good memory and, as such, easily retain what they learn, without the need for a large number of repetitions. However, their education must be early and sufficiently balanced, mixing softness and firmness. He is particularly receptive to the method of positive education, what is the best way to educate him and make him obey.

    On the other hand, How can it take time to reach mental maturity (sometimes two or three years), it is important to be patient during your education, especially if we notice that you tend to lose concentration easily.

    Last but not least, if the dog is to be used as a hunting dog, teaching the dog to remember should be one of the priorities in his training.

    Health and care

    The Polish Hound it is a strong and resistant breed of dog, that does not present any significant risk in terms of possible predisposition to certain diseases. Like most older dog breeds, has robust health and is much less susceptible to genetic diseases that can affect newer breeds.

    In spite of this, due to its large chest and high level of activity, is quite susceptible to the development of dilation-torsion syndrome of the stomach.

    In addition, how much of their time is spent outdoors, especially if they are used as hunting dogs, are more susceptible to parasites (like ticks and fleas) and infections, as well as injuries and hunting accidents.

    Last but not least, as with any dog ​​with lop ears, be careful with the risk of ear infections and inflammation.

    Care and maintenance

    The Polish Hound it is easy to care for because its coat is short and straight. Brushing your dog's coat once a week keeps it clean and removes dead hairs, especially during shedding periods. How shedding periods are not very consistent, brushing every two to three days is usually sufficient.

    Because its beautiful waterproof coat does not get dirty easily, bathing is rarely necessary. In fact, in most cases, the coat can be cleaned with a simple damp cloth. In addition, washing your dog tends to remove sebum, which has many positive properties, so it should only be done when the coat is really very dirty.

    In addition, you need to check and maintain your dog's ears regularly, as it is quite prone to canine ear infections. One can take the opportunity to examine their eyes at the same time.

    Looking at its claws, they are supposed to wear out naturally during your outings. However, If it is not so, you should cut your dog's claws from time to time.

    Last but not least, when he comes back from hunting or walking, it is important to ensure that there are no ticks (the application of a preventive antiparasitic treatment is strongly recommended) and any injuries you may have sustained while running.

French White and Black Hound

Of the three French Scent hounds, the French White and Black Hound, is the best known.

Content

The French White and Black Hound is a competent olfactory hound of French origin. It was developed specifically for hunting in large herds and today this breed is acquired exclusively for hunting. Despite her fabulous work skills, it can be found very rarely not only in European countries but also in its native France.

History

Before the french revolution, hunting with large packs was one of the favorite entertainments of the French nobility. In addition, it also offered the opportunity to establish business relationships and resolve global political and economic issues. Unfortunately, the demise of the French upper class during times of political upheaval also meant the disappearance of numerous varieties of sniffer hounds. After Napoleon's defeat, monarchical power was rebuilt and hound hunting regained its popularity. Thanks to technological advances in maritime traffic, Dog breeding became a much less difficult task and many British hounds were sent to France during the period from 1815 and 1900.

The true ancestry of the French Hound will likely never be discovered as most early breeders did not bother to keep any breeding records. However, it can be stated with quite certainty that the breed was created by mixing live and now extinct breeds of French and English hounds. The Saintongeois, Gascon Saintongeois and Poitevin hound were the main ancestors of the French White and Black Hound. It is commonly believed that other breeds were used to a fairly limited extent in their breeding program.

The French Scent hounds was kept solely for hunting in large herds. Its largest quarry were large wild animals such as deer, the wolf and the boar. A group of several hounds detected the scent trail of one of these mammals and chased it, barking loudly so the hunter could go after them. Depending on the type of animal pursued, the dogs were to corner him or kill him immediately.

The number of specimens of this breed of hound drastically decreased after two world wars. French hunting enthusiasts managed to save her, although many unique French breeds were lost to the world during these terrible times. In 1957, the French Hound was fully recognized by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI). However, FCI recognition hardly increased the international awareness of this dog, so it did not win the appreciation of hunters from other countries. In addition, currently their breeding and therefore their population are supported solely by the French hunting community.
