History

The history of Estonian Hound (or Eesti Hagijas in the language of your country of origin) begins at the beginning of the 20th century in Estonia, when the crossing of english hounds, Poles and Finns used by local hunters gave rise to a large dog unofficially considered regional and ancestor of the current Eesti Hagijas.

Given the sharp decline in the population of large game and in order to reestablish it, in 1937 a law was passed that prohibited hunting with dogs over 45 cm to the cross, which in fact caused a change of orientation towards smaller animals, like foxes and hares. As a result, Estonian hunters and breeders had to breed smaller dogs than they had then, therefore, the breeding program was introduced Beagles, the Dachshunds and Swiss Hounds.

This law was amended three years later, in 1940: the maximum size was increased to 55 cm., and breeders stopped their efforts to miniaturize local hunting dogs.

In 1947, when Estonia was part of the USSR, the Soviet Ministry of Agriculture decided that all “republics” who made up Estonia had to have a local breed of dog. The Estonian hunting dog population was then estimated at around 900, and the intense selection helped to stabilize the characteristics of the breed that would become the Estonian Hound.

In 1954, the Ministry of Agriculture sent a specialized commission to Estonia to study the 648 specimens submitted by local breeders, and were clearly convinced: the first breed standard was approved by the Ministry a few months later. This year marked the official introduction of the Estonian Hound like a race, whose stamina and formidable nose were immediately emphasized.

After the collapse of the Soviet regime, Estonia gained independence and in 1998 la Estonian Kennel Club, the main canine association in the country, recognized race. Being the only native of the country, it was not surprising that it was granted national dog status.

The organization set out to make the breed known and recognized internationally. His efforts were crowned with success in 2019, cuando the International Cynological Federation (FCI) provisionally accepted the breed and published a standard. Having said that, there is still a long way to go, since it is not recognized, for example, by the prestigious British Kennel Club, nor by American reference organizations such as the United Kennel Club (UKC) o el American Kennel Club (AKC).

The Estonian Hound is popular in an area encompassing Estonia and nearby Russian regions, and its population is estimated at about 1200 individuals. It is still used there as a hunting dog and has also made a place in many homes as a pet.. However, has not yet conquered the rest of the world. Rare in europe, even in the neighboring countries of Estonia, is practically absent from the North American continent.

Physical characteristics

Estonian-hound
Estonian Hound

The Estonian Hound They are medium-sized hunting dogs that can easily be mistaken for the Beagle, one of the races that helped create them. However, they are bigger than the Beagle and they have a more pointed snout.

His powerful and muscular body is very long. Its solid bone legs are straight and almost half the size at the withers.. Saber-shaped tail flicks when in motion and remains fairly low, no higher than back level.

The head is quite wide at the level of the skull and the long muzzle ends in a very black nose. His slightly oblique eyes are more or less dark brown, while her long, thin ears fall along her cheeks.

The coat of the Estonian Hound is short, rough and shiny, with a moderately dense undercoat. Their fur is usually tricolor, with black spots with more or less wide red edges on a white background. However, the standard accepts bicolor individuals with completely red spots, without any trace of black. In all cases, the tips of the legs and tail should be white, as well as the throat and chest.

Sexual dimorphism is marked, the female being slightly longer than the male, which is taller in the legs and wider.

Physical characteristics

The Estonian Hound he is particularly devoted to his family, who likes to spend time with. They are a breed of dog especially recommended for children: they love to interact with them and are very patient with them, they even accept having their tails or ears pulled. However, you should remember that interactions between a young child and a dog of any breed must be under the supervision of an adult.

This strong attachment to his family makes him not like loneliness, which can lead to separation anxiety. If you are often left home alone for long periods of time, not surprisingly you may experience destructive behavior.

A solution for a caregiver who is absent regularly during the day may be to provide a playmate. Made to hunt in a pack, the Estonian Hound they enjoy the company of other dogs. If they are used to its presence from an early age, They can also make friends with any feline in the house. On the other hand, as they have a strong hunting instinct, should not live with rabbits or other rodents.

Rather shy and not fond of novelty, the Estonian Hound they tend to bark at strangers and then observe their master's behavior from a distance. If he invites the newcomer to the house, comes to greet you politely, but stay reserved.

Extremely hardy hunting dogs used to long days in the woods, they need a lot of exercise to expend their great energy: a daily walk of one hour is a minimum for them. It is recommended to always keep it tied during these outings, as your excellent sense of smell often allows you to find an interesting track that you are likely to want to follow for hours, ignoring withdrawal orders. A dog owner who still wants to let him walk freely at this time should equip him with a GPS dog collar, so you can easily get your hands back on it if it disappears.

The Estonian Hound you can live in an apartment as long as you are outdoors often enough to satisfy your need for exercise, but he is much happier when he has a garden where he can patrol and play. However, this outdoor space must be well fenced to eliminate the risk of escape if you see potential prey to pursue.

A peculiarity of this dog is its need for routine and its aversion to novelty, which makes their behavior sometimes compared to that of domestic cats. This is not at all an appropriate choice for a master who wants to take their dog on vacation.: he is a poor traveler, you get stressed out when you get in the car and you don't like spending time in a place you don't know at all.

Last but not least, it is a breed of dog that barks often and forcefully. For the peace of the neighborhood, it is necessary to teach him from a young age not to bark for any reason and to shut up when ordered to do so.

Education

Estonian Hound
Estonian Hound

Like all its fellow men, the Estonian Hound must be socialized from an early age. This requires spending as much time with him as possible so that he meets all kinds of people (neighbors, family, friends, strangers…) And animals, but also so that you get used to the situations that you may face later.

This need to become very quickly acquainted with the outside world is all the more pronounced as it is fearful by nature. In particular, to prevent future vet visits from becoming a nightmare to handle, it is recommended to get used to traveling by car as soon as possible.

Addressing the barking issue at an early age is also imperative, so that you understand that it is not necessary to bark for hours at every unfamiliar noise.

It is also important to teach your dog to remember to bark, as you will not hear any more commands once you have sniffed the trail of a game animal and go in pursuit. Hunting instinct is well established in this breed, so it does not require any specific training to be able to follow a trail for hours and be an excellent hunter.

Relatively independent and headstrong, the Estonian Hound require patience to be trained, but they like to please their master and usually end up listening to him. If necessary, be firm to assert your dominant position and show your dog who is the master, traditional training methods should be avoided, at the risk of damaging the relationship of trust. It is preferable to opt for a learning technique based on positive reinforcement.

Health

As the Estonian Hound it is a relatively new breed and not very widespread, there is still no real and in-depth study of their possible health problems. However, looks quite robust, undoubtedly thanks to a reasoned breeding program that has prioritized the personality and abilities of individuals over their appearance.

However, you have probably inherited from Beagle and the Foxhound a certain predisposition to the following diseases:

  • Progressive retinal atrophy, a breakdown of the eye tissue that can eventually lead to blindness;
  • entropion and ectropion, problems with the eyelids that cause itching and / or irritation of the eye, but that can be surgically corrected;
  • dislocation of the patella, which affects the kneecap and causes walking difficulties. It can also be responsible for premature arthritis;
  • Elbow or hip dysplasia, that can cause lameness.
  • In addition, the Estonian Hound is sensitive to allergies and sinusitis. These ailments are not serious in themselves, but they can cause a certain amount of stress to the dog, as this breed relies heavily on its sense of smell. Therefore, a temporary loss of your sense of smell is likely disorienting you.

    At last, like most hunting dogs, the Estonian Hound have a ferocious appetite that can lead to overweight or even obesity if they don't get enough exercise.

    Grooming

    Despite her short hair and sparse undercoat, the Estonian Hound require some maintenance. Brushing twice a week is recommended to remove dead hairs and avoid finding them all over the house. This also helps to distribute sebum on the skin to better protect it against infectious agents..

    During shedding periods, in autumn and spring, it is even necessary to opt for a daily frequency, to cope with the large amount of hair she loses during this period.

    On the other hand, it is only necessary to bathe your dog when it is particularly dirty, for example, if he has rolled in the mud.

    Besides keeping your coat, it is recommended to check your teeth once a week to make sure there are no cavities, and wipe your eyes with a damp cloth to remove any dirt that may cause an infection.

    Weekly ear care is especially important: like any dog ​​with floppy ears, the Estonian Hound are at increased risk of ear infections and infections.

    History

    The race Bulldog or English Bulldog, It was initially used for betting in dog fights, during the 17TH century (in 1835 This practice was banned in England). In the news, This dog is one of the symbols of England.

    Its origin is in the «ancient Greek dog», Kelb Thal Bulldog, or bulls Maltese dog: an imported breed to England, with ancient mastiffs crossed gave rise to the Old English Bulldog.

    The Bulldog of yesteryear was lighter and similar to the Boxer than the chubby current Bulldog; was a purely sporting animal. It was used in the creation of other races as: Bullmastiff, Boxer, Bull Terrier, and some hounds like him Beagle old type. As a fighting dog was an animal that only accepted the challenge of greater such as bears animals, bulls and even Lions.

    The origin of the name is due to the fact of being a dog butchers, namely, its function was to run the bulls, to believe so their meat was smoother. Although it is probably a deformation of the name Band Dog or «seasoned dog».
    It must be borne in mind that the old Bulldog have nothing to do with the current, they were only modified with crosses with other races like the Pug or Carlin; race of which the Bulldog inherited its flattened snout as well as his plump muscles.

    Former Bulldogs were dogs of varied appearance, sometimes dogs elongated snout and all colors. It has to be taken into account that the former Bulldog was a working animal by which attached great importance to the character.

    Physical characteristics

    The Bulldog is a breed that is characterized by thick shoulders and a head large in proportion to their body. Generally thick folds of skin on his forehead, followed by a few black, large, round eyes. It has a short snout with folds above the nose, with a pendant Chin under neck, along with drooping lips and sharp teeth. The big legs give an idea, how strong is the dog that you have to deal with. Even a well-trained bulldog with an ideal weight seems to the uninitiated observer that it is a dog with excess pounds. He's really muscle loaded and he shouldn't have fat on his ribs. All this translates into a very powerful and imposing appearance.

    Its pelage is short, smooth and elegant red color, Beige, white, striped (color mixing, sometimes in irregular stripes) and various colors of these.

    The standard of weight and height varies according to country, but in general terms and averages, These dogs are usually measured in 30 a 40 cm. and weigh in 18 a 25 Kg. Some dog breeds need them they cut off the tail or her call after birth, the bulldogs are the few races that have naturally short and curly tail. A long, upright tail it is flaw in a Bulldog.

    Character and skills

    The Bulldog is friendly and courteous. There is hardly a quadruped that is so unconditionally dedicated to humans. Greet his family and all the people he has brought to his heart at some point in his life with exuberant warmth. It´s, in its most, a cool guy who can't be bothered by anything so quickly, not by a barking dog or by the vacuum cleaner running through its muzzle. But it can literally explode in an instant when it seems necessary. Then shoot like a rocket towards the front door and pile up with a dark bass in front of the alleged troublemaker.. In this situation, literally goes through the wall. The direct path is then his creed.

    But do not worry, the Bulldog can be controlled and bite accidents are practically impossible. When you realize you've scared a friend, almost ashamed. Once the “danger”, he lies down comfortably on his couch again seconds later and growls like nothing happened. At these extremes his mental heritage comes out once again. The Bulldog has a sovereign character, making it the ideal companion even in hectic big cities and a balm for our often stressed psyche.

    Bulldog care

    The Bulldog has no special demands on its posture. It is a frugal and low maintenance companion, as long as you are healthy. The most important thing is that you feel the love of your humans. Can be easily kept in a small apartment as long as it has its place on the sofa with a cushion. This is sacred to him. But there shouldn't be many stairs to climb. He loves his daily walks, you also need to stay fit, and is a smooth companion when traveling or in the restaurant. The Bulldog behaves perfectly and can also be left in the room for a few hours.

    However, when is hot, you have to let her rest. Be careful that you are not physically or mentally stressed. You should avoid long car trips even with air conditioning. In all other respects, it is perfectly suitable for traveling. Most Bulldogs love to travel by car. Since he doesn't have a strong hunting instinct, you can walk with him relaxedly through the landscape, what the Bulldog also likes. You have to control yourself with food. Most Bulldogs are voracious eaters, they empty their bowl in no time and then look at us with an innocent expression: “Than, Thats not all, I'm supposed to starve here?” Being overweight is bad for your health, even in the Bulldogs.

    No special coat care necessary; occasional brushing is good for fur and psyche.
    Regular cleaning is necessary in case of exaggerated wrinkles.

    Nutrition / Food

    The Bulldog is a greedy dog. He hurriedly empties the bowl and then asks with a disapproving look if that was all. In the interest of your health and your tendency to be overweight, must keep short and always watch the total ration of sweets included. It is advisable to feed the English Bulldog with high quality food with a high meat content.

    Life expectancy

    Due to over-exploitation and exaggeration in its appearance, the Bulldog has a life expectancy of only 6,3 years according to the statics of the Kennel Club leading the standard. A typical serious breeding Bulldog without exaggeration can easily reach the 10-12 years.

    Bulldog Health

    There's probably no dog, yes no animal, that was so deeply shaped and unfortunately deformed by us humans. This caused considerable health problems. In 2009 the Kennel Club of London, who is responsible for him, revised Bulldog standard for healthier breeding. Among other things, nose wrinkles are expressly prohibited. Unfortunately, these regulations are largely ignored in breeding. Natural births are a rarity and mating is increasingly being replaced by artificial insemination by the vet. The healthy Bulldog is very easy to care for.

    Many Bulldogs suffer from a deformation of the respiratory tract, it doesn't allow them to breathe freely. As a result, the heart is occasionally overloaded. In addition, inflamed wrinkles, entropion (eyelid turned inward) and the narrow ear canals are frequent clinical pictures of the Bulldog. It also tends to cause allergies..

    Education

    The basis of your education is a relationship of love and trust with your master and caregiver. Humans must take their stubbornness and occasional stubbornness with humor.. Otherwise, we have a problem. Not a receiver of orders. However, you need clear limits and rules that must be strictly followed. Because when you want something, can be very stubborn. The Bulldog wants to please his people, but check the meaning of each order. If you don't want something, there is no way to enter. The only way to enter is by asking. But then he will do what he is asked. A relationship of trust, a good understanding of your individual personality and respect for him can be the basis of an extremely harmonious team, where the Bulldog follows his keeper only with facial expressions and eye movements.

    Ideal family dogs

    Bulldogs are ideal family dogs. Social integration in the human family and participation in his life is the greatest for him. Also for us, the humans, her warm affection is always a source of joy, smile and good mood. Does not have an innate behavior, like the herding or protective instinct, it could become problems. It is an ideal playmate for children. Although at first glance it seems a bit awkward, he is surprisingly kind even to young children. Also gets along well with other pets.

    Buy a Bulldog

    Finding a healthy Bulldog is not easy
    Buying a Bulldog puppy is not an easy thing. Although there is a wide range of offers on the relevant Internet portals, these are mostly dubious. Many of the Bulldogs on offer there come from multipliers in Eastern Europe or even Germany. Breed dogs have a miserable life and puppies often show their illnesses already days after purchase. This can become a very expensive matter, not to mention suffering. The seriously bred Bulldog is an expensive dog to buy, precisely because their upbringing requires a lot of effort. Please, Buy your Bulldog only from longtime local breeder, preferably breeders with all certifications. Take a close look at the breeder: Serious breeders like to show you their breeding dogs and document the health and age of their ancestors.. But it is also recommended to take a look at the refuge – maybe there's a chance to offer a Bulldog a new home. The puppies of a serious breeder cost from 2500 EUR. No special maintenance costs are necessary, but the Bulldog has a high risk of disease and therefore a high risk of cost.

    English Foxhound History

    The English Foxhound can be considered a classic among British hunting dogs. This traditional breed is probably a cross between the Bracken medieval and the greyhounds, which were supposed to provide lighter weight for previously heavier tracking dogs. Its field of application was and is hunting, more precisely: pack fox hunt, also called “hunting by force”. In this hunt the herd chases game animals such as roe deer or foxes until they are exhausted. Persistent dogs can stay on their prey's heels for up to five hours. Although they are not faster than the pursued, tire the hunt so that the human hunter can hunt it. The “hunting by force” flourished in the 18th and 19th centuries, when it was practiced by the German nobility, British and French. Only the aristocracy could afford this elaborate form of hunting, and often destroyed numerous fields under the hooves of horse carts on the miles of unpredictable routes.

    In the meantime, this form of hunting is prohibited in Great Britain, as well as in most European countries. In Germany, by the way, this prohibition was not originally justified by the practice of hunting, which is questionable from an animal welfare point of view. Rather, prohibition, when came into force in the years 30, aimed to limit the privileges of the nobility – and therefore also hunting. But a few decades later, hunting laws confirmed the ban. But this was not the end for him English Foxhound: Today, trawling is a friendly alternative – not the killing of the hunt, but the joy of riding fast together with the herd is the main focus. In 1964 the breed was recognized by the FCI. Besides of English Foxhound, there is also the American Foxhound, slightly lighter construction.

    English Foxhound physical characteristics

    It has a great physical resemblance with the Beagle, Although it is slightly larger. The average size of English Foxhound varies slightly depending on the gender of the animal. The males measure between 55 and 62,5 cm. up the cross, and females in 50,5 a 60 cm. up the cross. Generally weigh between 25 and 34 kg. Their fur is short and hard, tricolor-negro color, White and toasted or bicolor with a white background. It has a light head, and with pronounced eyebrows. The ears are medium-sized and falls, Hound style. His muscular back, It has straight legs and well located porte alegre queue, Whip style. The long legs allow the English Foxhound at a fast pace.

    Character and skills English Foxhound

    This friendly dog ​​appreciates life in the pack, where he gets along with his peers. In keeping with your original purpose and the life of your ancestors, who almost without exception lived in large herds, the English Foxhound show good obedience, but does not usually establish close relationships with humans individually. Even today dogs grow up in the pack and stay there. If a stronger impression on humans is desired, the English Foxhound would have to be taken out of the pack already at puppy age, but this is not practiced, because these dogs are primarily professional hunting companions and not companion dogs. In addition, the Foxhound always retains a relatively high degree of stubbornness and does not show a pronounced “will to please”. Despite your stubbornness, the breed also has an affectionate side: to much Foxhounds they love to be petted and are also quite playful.

    English Foxhound Education

    The majority of the English Foxhounds are hunters and receive proper hunting dog training, which is absolutely necessary. When you keep a English Foxhound as a companion dog, there may be some obstacles to overcome, because this breed is a passionate hunter who does not have a close relationship with people individually. Especially if you have lived in a pack for a long time, it is difficult to establish a close relationship with the sociable four-legged friend.

    Promote the bond with common rituals and lots of positive motivation. This doesn't always have to consist of treats – petting or small games can also reward this breed of dog. The breed is considered to be very social and gets along very well with its peers. It should be clear to everyone that this four-legged friend has a great hunting instinct, adjust your walks accordingly and make sure the neighbor's cat or puppies by the roadside remain safe.

    The diet of the English Foxhound

    The English Foxhound needs a species-appropriate food, what it means: It must contain a lot of meat! Offer your English Foxhound wet or dry food without cereals, where meat is the main ingredient. Particularly for Foxhounds who are hunters, the energy requirement is highly dependent on the calories actually consumed – on days with long races up to 15 km, the four-legged friend needs correspondingly more energy. A food with a higher fat content is recommended for the most demanding sports needs. Give your dog the last serving about three hours before a sports session, so you have enough time to digest it before you start. Snacks are rarely necessary even during the longest sports drives. It is important that you Foxhound get a nice meal and a long rest after the job is done. The Foxhound it is a very good food processor – to avoid being overweight, watch your waistline and cut your portions accordingly when you start to gain weight. Dry chews are a welcome change to the four-legged friend's diet. However, avoid feeding the rumen with food, as it is suspected of promoting bloodhound ataxia in Foxhounds.

    Remember to Drink Lots of Fluids: allow your Foxhound drink water at least once an hour, even during a hunt. There should always be enough fresh water available for all the four-legged friends in the kennel.

    English Foxhound Health

    A Foxhound healthy is basically a very robust quadruped. But if you want to keep these dogs running, you must inform yourself in advance about the call Hound Ataxia. This is a neurological disorder that mainly affects the Foxhounds and to the Beagle. It usually occurs between the second and seventh year of life and manifests as movement disorders and spasticity. The cause is a breakdown of the white matter in the thoracic cord and of the gray matter in the dog's brain stem.. It is not conclusive if feeding in the rumen favors the outbreak of the disease; However, it is recommended to avoid it as a precautionary measure. Usually, the disease continues to progress without effective treatment options. The English Foxhounds they should also be screened for hip dysplasia before breeding with them. In addition, it is important to avoid being overweight, since the English Foxhounds that don't have enough demand get fat quickly. Dogs can reach an age of up to 13 years.

    Activity with the English Foxhound

    Many kilometers at full gallop – this is the amount of work that English Foxhounds not only drive but also appreciate. Trawling is a good alternative to the old hunts and is now organized throughout Europe, for example, in trawling clubs. The animals follow a foxtail or a brine trail from the rumen that drips from the containers that the riders carry later. If, even if it is not the ideal case, you have a English Foxhound that is not used for hunting, you can take him for a bike ride or learn about sports like canicross. In addition, their Foxhound should have room to frolic, ideally within a large fenced property and with other dogs of the same species. If your specimen is no longer able to hunt due to physical impairments, give him a mental workload instead and see if slower nasal work, like guided mantrailing, it's a good idea for your dog.

    Caring for the English Foxhound

    The short, soft coat of the English Foxhound does not present a challenge in terms of grooming. Regular brushing or massaging with a grooming glove removes excess hair and is a pleasure for many quadrupeds. Especially if you don't have a English Foxhound in a pack but as a companion dog, you should practice such bonding rituals with him from an early age. With older dogs, the claws should be examined regularly to avoid painful hooking when they get too long.. You should also regularly check your dog's coat for parasites and discuss prophylaxis with your vet..

    Where can I find an English Foxhound?

    This breed is usually bred by hunters for hunters, and that's a good thing. If you are interested in having these dogs and you have the time, money and space to raise a herd, you can find out in the trawling clubs. You're probably already familiar with them anyway, because without this form of organized hunting, forming your own herd makes little sense. In any case, stay away from Foxhounds individuals who were raised without papers and whose parents are not hunters. Most are dubious sellers who want to make money off the classic hunting dog. Puppies are not usually Foxhounds pure-bred, but mixed races. It is wiser to resort to the animal welfare when looking for mixed-breed dogs with a part of Foxhound, rather than supporting dubious breeding practices.

    If you are looking for a English Foxhound adult, you can find one at professional trawler clubs, for example. These always give away older dogs that are not suitable for very demanding use in trawling.. However, you should ask yourself critically and clarify in discussions with the pack leader if you have the possibility of offering this sporting dog with the characteristics already described a species-appropriate home.
