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. Fue desarrollado específicamente para la caza en grandes manadas y hoy en día esta raza se adquiere exclusivamente para la caza. Despite her fabulous work skills, puede ser encontrado muy raramente no sólo en los países europeos sino también en su Francia natal.

History

Before the french revolution, la caza con grandes jaurías era uno de los entretenimientos favoritos de la nobleza francesa. It also, también ofrecía la oportunidad de establecer relaciones comerciales y resolver asuntos políticos y económicos globales. Unfortunately, la desaparición de la clase alta francesa durante los tiempos de agitación política también significó la desaparición de numerosas variedades de sabuesos rastreadores. After Napoleon's defeat, monarchical power was rebuilt and hound hunting regained its popularity. Gracias a los avances tecnológicos en el tráfico marítimo, la cría de perros se convirtió en una tarea mucho menos difícil y muchos sabuesos británicos fueron enviados a Francia durante el período comprendido entre 1815 and 1900.

La verdadera ascendencia del sabueso francés probablemente nunca será descubierta ya que la mayoría de los primeros criadores no se molestaron en mantener ningún registro de crianza. 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. Se cree comúnmente que otras razas se utilizaron de forma bastante limitada en su programa de cría.

The French Scent hounds se mantuvo únicamente para la caza en grandes manadas. Its largest quarry were large wild animals such as deer, el lobo y el jabalí. Un grupo de varios sabuesos detectaba el rastro de olor de uno de estos mamíferos y lo perseguía, barking loudly so the hunter could go after them. Depending on the type of animal pursued, los perros debían acorralarlo o matarlo inmediatamente.

The number of specimens of this breed of hound drastically decreased after two world wars. French hunting enthusiasts managed to save her, aunque muchas razas francesas únicas se perdieron en el mundo durante estos terribles tiempos. 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, por lo que no ganó el aprecio de los cazadores de otros países. It also, en la actualidad su cría y por lo tanto su población son apoyadas únicamente por la comunidad de cazadores franceses. In general, the future of French White and Black Hound you will be fairly insured as long as there are fans of dog hunting in your homeland.

    History

    The Field Spaniel (Field) is an example of what can go wrong when trying to breed sporting dogs for their looks without considering their use in the field. In the early days of the breed, in the XVIII century, the Spaniels se definían por su tamaño, and it was considered Field Spaniel to any dog ​​that weighed more than 11 kg (25 pounds). The Spaniels más pequeños se conocían como “Cockers”, y ambos tamaños podían nacer en la misma camada. Su pelaje solía ser hígado, liver and white, red, Red and white, yellow or black and white.

    The advent of dog shows in the mid-19th century motivated dog breeders to start considering both appearance and function.. The different was good. Así nació el “Black Spaniel”. That was good, but unfortunately the dogs that were long and short – as the “Sussex Spaniel“- they were popular at dog shows at the time. The breeders began to cross Field Spaniel with “Sussex Spaniels“. How the size of the dogs was so different, the results were disastrous, converting to Field en un perro pesado y poco atractivo que apenas podía moverse. Even so, exaggerated-looking dogs won at shows.

    Finally, people came to their senses and the fashion of Field Spaniel finished. Los perros podrían haberse extinguido, but they were revitalized after World War I through crosses with the “English Springer Spaniel”, that were more suitable for the size of the Field Spaniel. Mediante una cuidadosa cría, their usefulness as hunting dogs was restored, con la capacidad de atravesar la maleza que era demasiado difícil para el “Springer”, y la velocidad de la que carecían elSussex” and the “Clumber“.

    La raza aún no estaba salvada. La Segunda Guerra Mundial puso fin a la cría, and then only a few good dogs were left. In United States, there was no Field Spaniel until the age of 60. The Field Spaniel Society of America was formed in 1978. Los perros siguen siendo poco conocidos hoy en día, but they are no longer in danger of extinction. The Field Spaniel ranks 132 between breeds registered by the AKC.

    Physical characteristics

    The Field Spaniel is closely related to the Cocker Spaniel and the “English Springer Spaniel”. In the beginning, the three races were separated mainly by size. With a weight range of 15 to 22 Kg, the Field Spaniel is bigger than him “Cocker” but smaller than the “Springer“. Además de cazar, competes in field tests and uses his excellent nose in tracking tests. Se trata de una raza poco común, but if you are looking for a solid hunter in addition to a family companion, the Field Spaniel is one of those you should consider.

    Weight and size:

    Females have an approximate size of 43 cm., While the males measure approximately 45 cm.. Its approximate weight varies from 18 – 25 kg.

    Character and skills

    The Field Spaniel tiene los rasgos típicos del Spaniel: sensitivity, affection for his family and willingness to learn. With strangers, is reserved, incluso tímido si no está bien socializado, but their owners will experience a playful and mischievous side. Puede ser ladrador cuando muestra alegría o inquietud.

    Its medium size and docile character can make it a good choice for families with children.. He also gets along well with pets, as cats, if he grew up with them. However, es posible que los pájaros de compañía deban vigilar su cola. Even though i don't hunt, the Field Spaniel he will take every opportunity to hunt birds and will do his best to go after them. Unless you are in an area with no traffic, keep it on a leash or you'll lose it in the chase.

    The Field Spaniel is a dog that needs a job. No es el tipo de perro que se pasa el día comiendo galletas. Take a daily leash walk of at least an hour, llévelo a zonas seguras y sin tráfico donde pueda correr sin correa y apúntelo a deportes caninos como agilidad, obedience, rally and crawl.

    Education

    The Field Spaniel is intelligent and accepts training well. Como la mayoría de los Spaniels, has a mild temperament and responds best to positive reinforcement techniques, like the compliments, the game and the food rewards. Tends to mature slowly, so you must be patient and constant. In the field he has a natural tendency to explore, that can be stopped by teaching commands like “Venz”, “Wait” and “stay”.

    Empiece a adiestrar a su cachorro el día que lo traiga a casa. Incluso con ocho semanas de edad, is able to absorb everything that can be taught. Don't wait for you to have 6 months to start training or you will have to deal with a stubborn dog. If possible, take him to a kennel school for puppies when he is between 10 and 12 weeks, and socializes.

    Health

    All dogs have the potential to develop genetic health problems, like all people have the potential to inherit diseases. Huya de cualquier criador que no ofrezca una garantía de salud para los cachorros, to tell you that the breed has no known problems or to keep puppies isolated from the main part of the house for health reasons. Un criador reputado será honesto y abierto sobre los problemas de salud de la raza y la incidencia con la que se producen.

    The Field Spaniel They have some health conditions that may be of concern, especially if you are not cautious with breeder selection. Among them are the Hypothyroidism and eye problems such as cataract, progressive retinal atrophy and retinal dysplasia.

    Do not buy a puppy from a breeder who cannot provide you with written documentation that the parents have been exempted from health issues affecting the breed. Make the dogs are “reviewed by the veterinarian” not a substitute for genetic health testing.

    Careful breeders screen their breeding dogs for genetic diseases and breed only the healthiest and best-looking dogs, but sometimes mother nature has other ideas. A puppy can develop one of these diseases despite good husbandry practices. Advances in veterinary medicine mean that, In most cases, dogs can still have a good life. If you are getting a puppy, pregunte al criador sobre las edades de los perros de sus líneas y cuáles son las causas más comunes de muerte.

    Remember that after welcoming a new puppy into your home, you have the power to protect you from one of the most common health problems: the obesity. Keeping the dog at an adequate weight is one of the easiest ways to extend its life. Take advantage of your prevention skills to ensure a healthier dog for life.

    Grooming

    The Field Spaniel has only one coat, that is to say, does not have undercoat. Silky hair is moderately long and can be straight or slightly wavy. The front of the chest, the belly, the back of the legs and the rear are fringed like those seen in breeds “Setter”.

    The coat is not heavy and it is easy to maintain. You have to brush it weekly and comb its fringes a couple of times a week, or whenever the dog has been outside or has twigs or other debris stuck to the hair. Trim the hair between the paw pads and inside the ears. Bathe the dog only when necessary; un cepillado regular debería mantenerlo bastante limpio. The Field Spaniel they molt moderately.

    If you plan to expose your Field Spaniel, ask the breeder for advice on how to present the dog at a dog show. You must have a natural look, but may need a little more razor cleaning, tijeras y cuchillas de peluquería de lo que recibiría un perro de compañía.

    The rest is basic care. Trim nails as needed, usually every few weeks. Yes to your Field Spaniel he likes to swim - and even if he doesn't like- keep hanging ears clean and dry to avoid bacterial or fungal infections. Brush your teeth frequently for general good health and fresh breath.

    History

    The first fox terrier, which were first presented at an English dog show in the mid-19th century, they were almost white dogs, especially suitable for fox hunting. Due to his courage, their endurance and ability to track and reach the foxes hidden in their burrow, little terriers soon found a large following among England's hunting and dog lovers. Gracias a su físico, the intrepid dogs were able to get into the tubes Fuchsbau narrower. El propósito de la cría para la caza del zorro fue también siempre el foco principal al seleccionar los perros de cría adecuados y finalmente le dio a los perros su nombre de raza Fox Terrier (Fox = Zorro, terre = Earth).

    History

    Terriers form a large group of dogs. Its name is derived from the Latin “Terra” for the earth. So they were dogs for work on the land. The first evidence is given by the ancient Romans. Already in the Middle Ages terriers are described in detail. His homeland is in the British Isles. Terriers existed throughout the country. In the stables they kept the little vermin. Even the big rats were not a problem for them. The hens, pigeons and rabbits protected them from martens and foxes. To keep chasing foxes, the terriers were sent to the trench. They were supposed to get the fox out of the hole. All these tasks required an enthusiastic commitment, special courage, independent thinking and so-called predatory acuity. The Terriers were the world champions back then “sport” from the rat bite. They were fearless and with every fiber of their being they strove to do their job to the best of their ability..

    We can still experience all of these qualities in our terriers today.. They make the special charm of these dogs. Terriers come in all sizes, but they are mostly quite small dogs up to the Yorkshire Terrier of today. But they were all once very busy working dogs. Most small terriers like Yorkie, the Westie or the Scottish they made their home in the cramped working-class settlements of emerging industry in England or Scotland. Despite her sometimes quite dainty appearance today, they are still whole dogs, yet. They are concise reps with their own heads and bold temperament. Great terriers like him Airedale Terrier they belong to the first service dogs, who worked for the police, customs or army worldwide. Small and medium terriers are still in high demand as hunting dogs, as the Parson Russel Terrier, el Fox Terrier o el German Hunting Terrier.

    In times past all terriers formed a large group of dogs, that were especially suited to the tasks mentioned here. Depending on the special field of application or the surface of the earth, formed different regional lines, that nevertheless remained connected to each other. Only modern pedigree dog breeding created dog breeds genetically separate from this, as we know them today. Like this, no less than 34 races, mostly native to England, Ireland, Scotland or Wales. Just the German Hunting Terrier comes from Germany.

    Content

    History

    With the settlement of the Azores archipelago and the beginning of the exploration of the optimal conditions of the islands for raising cattle, the need for dogs on the islands to help drive and defend livestock soon became apparent, dating from the sixteenth century the first reference to its presence, in particular on the island of São Miguel. These animals are recognized as the precursors of Saint Miguel Cattle Dog.

    Although the existence of Saint Miguel Cattle Dog, as an individual race, has been recorded since the early 19th century, only in 1982 began to be registered by António José Amaral with the collaboration of Maria de Fátima Machado Mendes Cabral, veterinarian, in order to create a census of your herds. The first officially registered dog of the breed was the “Corisca”, a perfect representative of your breed.

    It is also on the initiative of these same two people that, in 1984, two years after the beginning of the registration of persons the first official standard is published. In 1995 was proposed to the FCI (International Cynological Federation) and the breed was finally recognized in 2008.

    Origin:

    The breed known today as Saint Miguel Cattle Dog descended from mastiffs and alano initially brought to the islands of the Azores by the first settlers on the continent. Later, and through contact with other people who came and settled in the Azores, the genetic heritage of the breed was enriched by crosses made with English mastiffs, bulldogs and Dogue de Bordeaux, until the culmination of the appearance of the new race, with fully defined morphological and temperamental characteristics.

    In addition to those mentioned, other races may form part of the Fila de San Miguel ancestry, as the St. Humberto's Dog, also known as Bloodhound, and the Dogo Canario, a Spanish breed from the Canary Islands, but the real link – yes there is – between these races and the Sao Miguel queue not yet proven.

The head has a solid appearance, wide and with the ears well placed on top, implanted in a strong neck that starts from a solid trunk, with a wide and deep chest. The legs are proportional to the body, being the front, as a rule, slightly separated.

    Character and skills

    Race of a lively and sharp intelligence, with great ease of learning, the strength of character of the Saint Miguel Cattle Dog, coupled with a distrust of the strange instincts of all guardians by vocation, can easily be mistaken for aggressiveness, but it hides a gentle nature towards those with whom it deals closely, while remaining a tenacious and courageous guardian of those who treat him. His loyalty to his human family is extreme.

    With even greater emphasis, given the dominant nature of the breed, the education and sociability of puppies must be done from birth, gradually exposing the animals to new situations and stimuli, in order to improve the development of balanced individuals capable of living with humans and other animals.

    Not a suitable breed for beginners, given its dominant nature, further enhanced by his physical strength and his strongly independent and autonomous character.

    Even as a pet, a Saint Miguel Cattle Dog must have the opportunity to have a task to perform. Thorough training is always a simple and effective means of strengthening the relationship between the human family and the animal, while providing the physical and mental exercise necessary for the training and development of a well-balanced animal.

    However, given the intrinsic characteristics of the breed, training a copy of the Saint Miguel Cattle Dog it is a task that can be quite difficult for someone who has little experience with dogs. Being a very intelligent and dominant breed, will not respond well to the use of force. Full socialization recommended.

    The sheepdog for tradition and excellence, their natural fitness for livestock can, with the right training, can be channeled into the care of horses and other small ruminants such as sheep and goats.
