History

The strong similarity to the Mittelspitz (Standard or Medium Spitz) German allows us to suppose that the Japanese spitz descends from this same race. Other cynologists assume that the Spitz descends from the Nordic Spitz. One thing is for sure: the origin of Japanese spitz not in japan, but in Europe. From there he arrived in Japan at the beginning of the 20th century together with the travelers.

The attractive white dog with the charming character quickly gained popularity among the Japanese population. With more caps from China, Canada and the US, he established his own breeding in Japan in the years 20. While in Europe an attempt was made to increase the size of the lace, thus creating the German Spitz, the Japanese tended to opt for the more original compact form. In 1948 the Japanese Kennel Club established a first breed standard for the first time. Japan was designated as the country of origin in the standard. The FCI, that has officially recognized the Japanese spitz from 1964, includes it today in the Group 5 (Spitz and dogs of the original type), as well as in the Subsection 5 (Asian Spitz and related breeds), under Standard No. 262.

In his native Japan, the Japanese spitz it was very popular for a long time, especially in the years 50 the last century. Although it is still more common there in terms of numbers than in Europe, the demand of the little companion is gradually changing. While in Japan the number of recently registered cubs is decreasing, is increasing in North America and Europe.

Only in the coat change phase (twice a year) grooming effort increases until daily styling.

Japanese Spitz health

An indication of good and serious parenting is the presentation of genetic test results.. The farm animals used must have an impeccable genetic makeup to exclude genetic diseases from the outset. Dogs in which hereditary diseases typical of the breed have occurred should be excluded from breeding for the sake of the breed's health. This also includes the tendency to dislocate the patella (kneecap slipping out of its guide), which can also be inherited in many dogs, especially in small dog breeds. Also eye problems, such as distichiasis or narrowing of the tear ducts, as well as dental problems can occur with the Japanese spitz. No other typical diseases of the breed are known.

A puppy, on the other hand, should only be purchased from a serious and certified breeder.

How do I recognize a serious breeder?

It's not just “formalities” the ones that must be correct, namely, the papers, the pedigree and the sales contract, but also personal reasons that ultimately decide the purchase. The breeder must, first, be understanding with you, and this cannot be found out with a short email or a short phone call. One or better several meetings are necessary to get a complete picture of the breeder and his dogs.. Does the breeder invite you to his house? Will you willingly show your “dog pound” and the animals live in close contact with the breeder's family?

History

In the middle of the Edo era, about 1700, a small dog appeared in Japan that looked a lot like the terrier type. It was the result of a cross between small Japanese dogs with English Fox Terrier Smooth, which was brought to the port of Nagasaki by Dutch sailors. At that time the port of Nagasaki was the only port open to western countries, especially the dutch. After several generations, some descendants of these dogs were bred as a type of Italian Greyhound.

Around 1900, al final de la era Meiji, some of the best of the aforementioned dogs were seen in the Kobe district and called “Terriers de Kobe”. His type was something between modern Fox Terrier Smooth and the modern Japanese Terrier. They were the first terriers to be bred in Japan. This “Kobe Terrier” and some of their ancestors were also called “Oyuki Terrier” and “Mikado Terrier” and it is said that they were lovingly cared for by locals and also by foreigners.

Around 1916 An ancestor of the Japanese Terrier appeared in the Nada district, near Kobe, a so-called dog “KURO” (born in 1913 in Kobe), that means “black” in Japanese. This dog was a cross between a English toy terrier and Bull Terrier miniature, both imported from western countries. These pups were raised with dogs of the aforementioned Kobe Terrier. The result was a very short haired dog, slim and small of the Terrier type and was called JAPANESE TERRIER (NIHON) since then. In those days, Osaka County's top breeders engaged in inbreeding and line breeding to consolidate appearance. Thanks to your efforts, the breed was firmly established in 1930.

In 1932 NIHON TERIA CLUB was founded under the presidency of Tamara KIKUJIRO. The JAPANESE TERRIER was ideal for city dog ​​breeders and became fashionable.

In 1940, where cities were built everywhere and with these cities grew the demand for a smaller and more active dog than the large guard dogs, the JAPANESE TERRIER became very popular. However, in all its history, this breed was twice threatened with extinction. The first time, during WWII and again, about 1948, due to loss of popularity among the Japanese, since other western races were more fashionable.

Although the JAPANESE TERRIER was recognized by the F.C.I. (Federation Cynologique Internationale) in 1964, this breed was practically unknown outside of Japan.

According to the documents, three basic lines of JAPANESE TERRIER were mentioned: “LANDMARK” (by Mr.. Nobuaki Shigematsu, Yamaguchi Prefecture), “APPLY” (by Mr.. Sumiko Amano, Hamamatsu City) and “TAMA TAKAHARA” (by Mr.. Jun Takahara, Such).

Around 1985, there was less than 50 bitches available for breeding throughout Japan. After the great efforts of some volunteers, who were aware of the need for immediate protection of the race, the number of dogs had reached about 400 breeding dogs after seven years.

Therefore, special mention must be made of the efforts of Mr.. Jun TAKAHARA, whose commitment made the JAPANESE TERRIER known beyond the borders of Japan.

The breed was not seen in European countries until 1991, when a couple of Japanese Terriers arrived in France at the request of Mrs.. Luisa González de Castejón. Their dog names were “Kuroyuri Maru de Tama Takahara” (male) and “Keshinome Brains de Tama Takahara” (female).

Another European breeder had also joined this adventure in the years 90: The Sr. Roberto Verde from Naples (Italy) he also owned three beautiful Japanese Terriers.

Time and time again there have been and still are some breeders who care for this breed, but unfortunately it was not possible to establish a stable population in Europe.

After 2 years of establishing contact with the Japanese breeder Mr.. Thoshihide OZAKI was able to import the FIRST JAPANESE TERRIER on 4.11.2014 to AUSTRIA. “YODOGIMI de OZAKI FARM JP” Born 28.06.2014. This dog was registered with the Austrian Kennel Club (ÖHZB) con JAPT 1.

In order to create a breeding base, more dogs have been imported from Japan in recent years. In total 4 females were brought to Austria and two males (Ozaki Farm JP’s HIBIKI Swiss / 2017 & Ozaki Farm JP’s SHIN / 2018) were transferred to Switzerland. In 2017 the first Japanese Terrier was registered in Switzerland.

Physical characteristics

It is a small dog, elegant in appearance, and a defined and compact configuration.

Shoulder height: 30 cm. – 33 cm.; Weight: a few 5 kg

Fur: Short (2mm) smooth, dense and glossy; the coat does not need any additional care;

Color: Head: Tricolor (fire and white); Body: Basic color white with small black or tan spots.

The breeders of the JAPANESE TERRIER are very demanding in terms of appearance and color markings, that are sometimes considered more important than your sports skills. The ideal colors and markings in a Japanese Terrier are black, chocolate brown and beige: The head, ears and nose bone should be dark in color, black or chocolate brown. The muzzle to the nose and on each cheek and above each eye should be light brown. The lower jaw will be white. A clear “V” is visible on the neck. Occasionally there are also dark gray heads with light brown markings. However, this is considered to be the worst of the color variations. This is different with the deep black heads. This black color is allowed, because it reminds one of the old kobe dogs.

Character and skills

The JAPANESE TERRIER is not only a very intelligent puppy, but also mischievous and full of terrier temperament. Knowing him means loving him for his great sensitivity. Has a cheerful character and will participate in games with pleasure and joy. It is a one-man dog whose devotion flatters its owner. As an attentive house dog will warn of the approach of a stranger but without being aggressive. It is very easy to train and can learn all kinds of tricks. His greatest effort is to please his owner. As a sports partner he has great skills and innate instincts. Has an excellent sense of smell and good eyesight, but still has no hunting ambitions. It's never quarrelsome, She gets along well with other dogs, especially with his own race.

It is an independent puppy, whose characteristics make it a pleasant “partner”. It is suitable for young people, for both athletes and the young at heart. And one thing is especially important for the little terrier: snuggling with its owner.

Attitude: The Japanese terrier is a small dog, but still needs enough activity. It is the ideal companion for active people. Likes to learn and is therefore also suitable for mind games or dog sports that are suitable for small breeds.

It is a “perro faldero” in the positive sense. But that's only if you're tired of the many races!

With the kids:

The JAPANESE TERRIER is very attached to its owners and enjoys a good snuggle. However, he is not a babysitter dog. As in all small dog breeds, small body size has advantages when traveling, but it becomes a disadvantage with – and I say it with affection – the clumsy hands of children. This means that when they have children, make sure children handle the dog with care. Offer the dog an area where he can retreat if he becomes too heavy for him. If this is observed, nothing stands in the way of positive cooperation.

The correct nutrition of the Japanese Terrier

Proper nutrition is extremely important to avoid diet-related diseases. It is important to have a balanced diet that suits your beloved. Due to its active nature, the Japanese Terrier has its own nutritional requirements. It is very agile, so you need to pay attention to a sufficient power supply.

High-quality whole foods are precisely tailored to your dog's nutritional needs. This ensures a supply of all the nutrients your dog needs.. High-quality prepared foods have the advantage that no feed additives are needed.

Terriers are often susceptible to allergies based on gluten-containing grains. In this case, you must ensure that the food contains other sources of carbohydrates. Rice or potatoes are a good alternative here. Food intolerance can lead to skin rashes, inflammation and digestive problems.

It is recommended to feed your terrier several times a day in small portions. After each feeding, a pause in digestion must be ensured. You should refrain from eating before planned sports activities.

Japanese Terrier Care

Your Japanese Terrier's coat is extremely easy to care for, since it only measures about 2 cm long. Don't lose much, but you will enjoy removing loose hairs with a silicone glove. Even dandruff can be removed and the blood circulation of the skin is stimulated.

Your terrier's hair doesn't grow too thick. Therefore, it is recommended to put on a coat during the cold months. If you stay outdoors for a longer period of time, protect your stomach and nose with sun milk.

When caring for your terrier's teeth, you should make sure not to feed him any food that contains sugar. These damage teeth, which in turn can lead to serious digestive problems.

The Japanese Terrier has a highly developed musculature, but its bone structure is quite fine. Therefore, the use of a dog harness is recommended instead of a collar. If you stay home alone for a while, chewing bones of an appropriate size can be used as a toy.

    History

    The true origin of the Japanese Chin It is still controversial, Although a general consensus, concludes that originated in Spaniela.

    These dogs were brought to Japan around year 732. Some maintain the ancestors of these dogs first arrived to Japan around the year 732, as a gift from royalty Korea, while others argue that Japanese Chin copies were offered as a gift to the Empress of Japan in the middle of the sixth century, other theories say that they arrived in Japan in the year 1000.

    But beyond all the controversy regarding the origin, all agree on one thing, the Japanese Chin, is an authentic “Japanese”, because it reflects the Japanese sensitivity to detail.

    The Japanese established various breeds of dogs, with a defined purpose that was work, that Japan considered something different, different from a “dog“, He was considered a work on farm animal, for hunting, to care for cattle, etc., but the Japanese Spaniel, It was something very special because it was strictly considered a companion dog.

    His appearance and distinctive personality was quickly captured the hearts of the Japanese and that led to ownership of these dogs to be limited to persons of Royal and noble blood.

    As a result, every noble House was raising its own standard, why there are many variations of the Japanese Spaniel, in terms of size, the density of the layer, the eyes, the personalidad…

    Once the race was introduced in the West, a strong desire of the people by the smaller copies (those who weighed a maximum 4,5 Kg.), He carried that size was the most popular and became the official standard of various canine clubs around the world.

    Professor Ludvic Von Schulmuth studied canine origins from a find of skeletal remains of dogs found in human settlements dating back to the eighth Millennium BC, in the Gobi desert. On the basis of the information collected, he created a genealogical tree of Tibetan dogs which gathered very interesting information concerning the origin of certain breeds that are today very popular.

    The Gobi Desert is a large desert region between Spaniela northern and southern Mongolia. Can be one of the deserts, or desert areas largest and most important worldwide. Around it the Altai Mountains and the steppes of Mongolia in the North, Tibet Plateau and the northern plains of the southwest Spaniela. The word gobi means ' desert’ in Mongolian. The Gobi is composed of different geographic and ecological regions, based on variations in climate and topography.

    Occupying the 30% of the national territory, great Gobi Mongolia covers capricious montes, sandy dunes, vast plateaus, steppes with its aromatic herbs and, Since then, a varied animal world, within the canine ancestors found Professor Ludvic Von Schulmuth.

    Ludvic von Schulmuth defined as origin of certain dog breeds a former denizen dog of the Gobi desert, whose remains were found in places where stored manure or litter, and called them “Gobi Desert Kitchen Midden Dog”, This animal came several lines which were giving rise to several breeds. For example, a small dog of soft hair and drooping ears that was the ancestor of Tibetan Spaniel, the Japanese Chin and Pekingese. Another branch which descends from the “Gobi Desert Kitchen Midden Dog ” gave rise to the Papillon and to the Chihuahua long-haired. Y, another branch of the same dog of the Gobi desert, gave rise to the emergence of the Pug and Shih Tzu.

    There is also some documentation that indicates Portuguese sailors introduced the breed to Europe in the century 17 through the gift of some to Catherine of Braganza, Queen Consort of King Charles II of England, but there is more evidence that the first Japanese Spaniel which opened steps behind borders, It was a gift of the Emperor of Japan offered a U.S. Navy officer, Matthew C. Perry, When he visited East in 1853 to open bilateral trade. The naval officer, a litter seven Japanese took Spaniel, and to reach their land only survived two, and who gave them is something that is still not known with certainty.
