History

Originally from North Africa and probably a descendant of the ancient “Egyptian hound”, it is said that the Sloughi took its name from the town of Sloughia en Túnez. Sus orígenes exactos no están claros, but it is known that it was used for centuries by the Berber people and the Bedouin tribes to hunt gazelles, jackals, foxes and hares. In fact, thanks to its speed and resistance, podía perseguir a la caza en grandes extensiones de desierto, which explains why it was the favorite dog of nomads. His sense of observation and his highly developed instinct also made him - and make him- an excellent herding dog. Last, it was also a domestic animal for them, ya que se le permitía dormir con ellos en la tienda por la noche. Incluso lo cubrieron con una manta para protegerlo del frío.

The first Sloughis arrived in Europe in the mid-nineteenth century, after the conquest of Algeria by France. The breed was recognized by the Federation Cynologique Internationale (FCI) in 1934. World War II halted its development, ya que muchos criadores tuvieron que aplicar la eutanasia a sus animales por falta de alimentos o exportarlos a países que se salvaron del conflicto. The Sloughi it then became extremely rare until the end of the Algerian war (1954-1962), cuando los soldados franceses trajeron a su país algunos ejemplares de la raza, which relaunched its expansion into European territory.

Tagiurie el Sian it was the first Sloughi that arrived in the United States in 1973. Originario de Túnez, crossed the Atlantic with his owners Kaethe y Carl Rodarty. Unfortunately, due to his age and lack of females, could not have offspring. In fact, la raza no se estableció realmente en el país hasta 1979, When Carole Cioce imported two Sloughis from Germany to California.

La mayoría de los representantes de la raza en América del Norte descienden hoy en día de individuos importados de países europeos (France, Netherlands, Germany, etc.), aunque algunos proceden directamente del norte de África, especially from Algeria, Libia y Túnez.

The breed was recognized by the United Kennel Club (UKC) in 1995, y el otro organismo de referencia del país, the American Kennel Club (AKC), did the same in 2016. El Canadian Kennel Club (CKC), on the other hand, has not yet taken the step.
La popularidad del CKC en el país vecino no es ciertamente una razón para que lo haga. The Sloughi It is one of the rarest dog breeds in the United States, quedando en último lugar en 2018 en el ranking establecido por el AKC en función del número de nacimientos anuales registrados en la organización.

In fact, the Sloughi It is now one of the rarest breeds of sighthounds in the world. In France, occur between 30 and 50 registrations per year in the Livre des Origines Français (LOF). The figure has been relatively stable since the middle of the years 80, while at the beginning of that decade it was rather twice. Compared, every year they are born around 1.400 hounds Whippet. In Great Britain, race is even confidential, ya que algunos años no se registra ningún nacimiento en el prestigioso Kennel Club, el organismo canino de referencia del país.

The Sloughi también está en peligro de extinción en los países del Magreb. Su número no deja de disminuir, mainly due to the scarcity and protection of certain species it hunts and the sedentarization of the Bedouin tribes, who need your help less and less to protect their herds.

In the news, Marruecos cuenta con el mayor número de Sloughis of the world. Es difícil saber el número exacto, but specialists estimate that the population is about 600 individuals.

Physical characteristics

The Sloughi it is one of the largest dog breeds. Like the other races of Sighthounds, looks slim and athletic. This is due to their thin and tight skin, to his short coat, fine and closed, to his lean musculature and his very pronounced bone structure. Its general appearance is that of a noble dog, very elegant and stylish, but specially built for speed.

His chest is wide, encased by flat ribs, long and slightly curved on the back third of the chest. The belly is tight and the back is short, almost horizontal between the withers and the hips. Straight legs, Bony and muscular are an important part of the dog's formidable speed.

Profile, the head is long and thin. Seen from above, the skull is wide. Tapers to the end formed by the nose, reminiscent of the shape of a valley. The nose is black and slightly descending, and the nostrils are wide open.

The eyes are large and dark, with a soft and melancholy look. The edge of the eyelids is pigmented. Las orejas son caídas, triangular in shape and slightly rounded at the tips. La mandíbula es fuerte y regular.

Los colores del pelaje varían de arena clara a rojiza, with or without black mask or cape. The most common are the black sand mask and the brindle sand.

Last, sexual dimorphism is not very pronounced, since the males are usually not more than 10 cm taller than females, which is modest compared to the size of the animal.

Size and weight

▷ Male size: 66 a 72 cm.
▷ female size: 64 a 69 cm.
▷ Male weight: 20-25 kg
▷ female weight: 19-22 kg

Character and skills

Although it is not very demonstrative, the Sloughi he is devoted and loyal, and tends to be a single owner dog. When they join their owner, is for all the life, por lo que es muy difícil que se unan a otra familia si su dueño es abandonado o muere.

They get along well with children, but it is better if they are of a certain age and have learned to interact with an animal. In fact, given its size, podría empujar involuntariamente a uno más pequeño, or forcefully push away an older one who disrespects you. In any case, whatever the race and the degree of proximity, a small child should never be left alone with a dog.

Their sociability with humans is often limited to family members. With strangers, they are much more reserved, and will bravely defend their own if they feel threatened in any way.

In more general terms, can easily become anxious when faced with new situations. Thus, it is essential to socialize him as soon as possible to prevent him from becoming a fearful and / or unnecessarily aggressive dog.

You can also live with animals of other species (cats, rodents, etc.), as long as they grew up together and you consider them part of your family. On the other hand, as his hunting instinct is highly developed, the subsequent introduction of another animal into the home where you live can be problematic.

As for living under the same roof as a partner, this coexistence does not usually pose problems if you have grown up with him. Otherwise, it all depends on the size of the newcomer. Yes it's small, is likely to be regarded as prey. From his past as a hunter and rancher, preserves the need for space and exercise. Therefore, necesita al menos una hora de ejercicio físico al día para deshacerse de su exceso de energía y estar equilibrado. Therefore, they are ideal candidates for dog sports, starting, of course, for the tests intended for sighthounds (racing in cinodromes, decoy chase…). It is also an ideal breed of dog for an athlete, who likes to accompany on their outings; canicross and cani-VTT are activities perfectly adapted to it, and certainly more recommendable than sighthound races. On the other hand, having a strong hunting instinct, he can chase any small animals he meets at any time, especially cats. Therefore, it is essential that you obey the call, and in any case it is better to carry him on a leash during walks, to avoid any risk of leakage. In fact, once a Sloughi olido has a hold, no longer really responsive to his master's instructions, so it is extremely difficult to make him return.

This is all the more true since, even with a lot of training, is often far from being the most obedient dog in the world. What's more, cannot be trusted to keep a low profile if reprimanded: given his strong character, sería todo lo contrario. Therefore, it is up to the owner to be firm from an early age, so as not to be dominated by his imposing companion.

The great need for exercise of the Arabian Greyhound and its size make, although I rarely bark (even in the presence of strangers), not really adapted to living in a flat. However, can live in an apartment, siempre que se le saque varias veces al día y pueda satisfacer su necesidad de ejercicio. A house is still preferable. However, es importante asegurarse de que el jardín esté bien vallado, since the Sloughi is naturally elusive. El uso de una valla eléctrica subterránea no sería una solución viable con un perro así, ya que la molestia de los impulsos eléctricos sería menos fuerte que su determinación de huir y seguir quién sabe qué rastro. On the other hand, although I tolerate loneliness relatively well, it is not convenient that I live outside. In fact, su corto y fino pelaje le hace muy sensible al frío, and he needs to bond with his humans anyway, to whom he is more attached than sometimes is thought.

Education

The Sloughi es un perro tímido y se asusta fácilmente con lo que no conoce. Therefore, their socialization should take place from a very young age, when it is most malleable, para que se enfrente al máximo número de personas y situaciones y aprenda a adoptar los comportamientos adecuados en todas las circunstancias, to become a perfectly balanced adult.

You should also put him in contact with other animals, especially with cats, rodents and other small animals, to try to prevent him from seeing them as prey when he later crosses paths with them.

With his great intelligence and keen sense of observation, learns quickly… if you want. In fact, obedience is not his strong point: It is not a dog that strives to satisfy or even anticipate the requests of its master. Therefore, you need to be firm in your education, but also show patience, to respect his character. Intentar entrar a la fuerza sólo podría ser perjudicial para el futuro, since it is a proud and sensitive animal, who does not appreciate reprimands. His temperament makes him an ideal client for the positive reinforcement dog training method, and sweets are usually the key to success.

Last, teaching your dog to remember is especially important to be able to enjoy walks outdoors with peace of mind, since the Sloughi retains a strong predatory instinct and, therefore, can launch itself at any time in pursuit of an animal that it considers prey. Esto es aún más cierto porque, given its maximum speed, es muy difícil alcanzarlo.

Health

The Sloughi it is a healthy breed of dog. Has a low risk of inherited diseases and a longer life expectancy than other dogs of the same size.

However, are prone to injury while running and are more prone to certain ailments.

This is the case, in particular, of the progressive retinal atrophy of APR-RCD type (rod and cone dysplasia), an inherited disease that causes a malformation of the retina: the puppy's eyesight deteriorates from 6 months old and, usually, goes completely blind before the year. There is a blood test that can determine whether or not an individual is a carrier of the gene responsible for this disease. Therefore, before adopting a representative of this breed, it is recommended to do the test, to avoid any risk at this level. Of course, knowing that it is a hereditary disease, un buen criador no cría a un individuo portador del gen.

Like all large dog breeds, it is also more prone to síndrome de dilatación-torsión del estómago. This condition is an absolute emergency, as it is likely to die if not treated by a vet very quickly.

What's more, como la mayoría de las razas de “Sighthounds”, the Sloughi is especially sensitive to anesthesia and medications. Thus, it is advisable to turn to a veterinarian who knows the specificities of these dogs in this regard.

Otra particularidad de este perro es su altísima tolerancia al dolor, por lo que a veces es difícil detectar que está sufriendo. Therefore, be especially attentive to any change in behavior that may betray a health problem.

Last, debido a sus orígenes y a su pelaje, the Sloughi no es una raza de clima frío. Thus, when temperatures are low, it is important to avoid spending too much time outside and to cover it with a suitable coat for dogs.

Life expectancy

12 years

Grooming

The Sloughi is the archetype of easy-care dog.

Brushing his short coat once or twice a week with a soft brush or brushing glove is perfectly sufficient to remove dead hairs and keep his coat clean.. Su muda es aún más limitada ya que, unlike many other breeds, does not suffer seasonal molts.

What's more, the coat is self-cleaning, so it does not give off bad odors and it is not necessary to wash it regularly. Under normal circumstances, two or three times a year is more than enough, but, of course, you should not hesitate to bathe your dog if he has become very dirty and / or if harmful substances have spread through his coat.

As in any race, oral hygiene is very important and should not be neglected. The toothbrush is the most effective accessory to prevent the accumulation of tartar, fortalecer las encías y evitar el mal aliento.

What's more, aunque su perro no corre especial riesgo de sufrir infecciones de oído, despite the dangling shape of his ears, es necesario inspeccionar y limpiar sus oídos al menos una vez a la semana. This weekly session is also an opportunity to review - and if necessary clean- the eyes.

Last, natural wear and tear is usually enough to trim your claws. However, when you get older and / or less active, they can be too long, and then they can annoy or even hurt you. In this case, it is advisable to trim them with a special file or with a claw trimmer.

As in the case of any dog, the sooner you get used to the different manipulations that your care entails, the less likely you are to have problems later.

Food

The diet of the Sloughi should consist primarily of lean meat, rice and vegetables. It is preferable to choose a quality food, either in the form of industrial croquettes, pate or homemade food. La cantidad que se debe dar varía según el tamaño, la edad y la actividad física del animal. By the way, don't be fooled by its slim look and slightly visible ribs: esto forma parte de sus características físicas y no es en absoluto un signo de que esté mal alimentado. No need to worry about it, sino que lo anormal sería lo contrario.

In general, the more effort and activity your dog makes, más alimento necesitará para compensar la pérdida de energía. It is advisable to divide it into at least two meals, one in the morning and one at night, to reduce the likelihood of digestive problems such as stomach bloating or distention.

Para evitar esto último, las comidas deben realizarse en un lugar tranquilo y a una hora de distancia de los paseos o de cualquier actividad física intensa.

Last, as in the case of all dogs, es esencial garantizar la disponibilidad de agua fresca durante todo el día.

Use

Known as the “lord of the dogs” en la cultura marroquí, the Sloughi has long been appreciated for its hunting skills, agility, endurance and speed. It can reach a speed of up to 55 km / h along 300 m, to the point that there is an Arabic saying that says “when a Sloughi see a gazelle pluck a blade of grass, it will be at your height before you finish chewing it”.

En el norte de África, where is he from, It was mainly used as a guard dog to protect herds, así como para cazar liebres, foxes, jackals or gazelles.

However, in 1844, a French law prohibited hunting with Sighthounds and it was applied in the Maghreb territories that became part of France in the 19th century.

Since 2004, la caza con galgos vuelve a estar permitida en algunos países del Magreb, but under certain conditions. However, is still banned in Europe, except for Spain.

In United States, has sometimes been used to hunt coyotes.

In their homelands, the Sloughi It is still used by nomads as a guard dog for their herds, although this practice tends to disappear as tribes settle.

Su lealtad y su inquebrantable devoción a su amo también los convierten en muy buenos perros de compañía, as long as their families are able to meet their great need for exercise.

Last, his lean and athletic nature makes him a good competitor in racing and sight pursuit events, although it is not as fast as a “Greyhound”.

Price “Sloughi (Arabian Greyhound)”

The price of a puppy Sloughi ranges between 900 and 1300 EUR. The price of a copy depends on its conformity with the standard, of the reputation of his lineage, of the prestige of the kennel and also of its sex: females are considerably more expensive than males.

It is also possible to import a Arabian Greyhound directamente del norte de África. The purchase price is more affordable (between 500 and 750 EUR), but you must respect the regulations regarding the importation of a dog from abroad, and transport costs and administrative fees are added to the purchase price.

Adopting a Sloughi It can also be done through specialized retired greyhound associations. Many owners decide to part with their Sloughi when they can no longer compete. Sometimes they are also abandoned by owners who are not sufficiently informed of their needs. (sobre todo en cuanto a la actividad física) and they are not able to take proper care of them. Thus, these associations try to offer a second life to the greyhounds they host, allowing them to find a new family.

History

As the name suggests, the Italian Spinone -or “Italian Griffon” – is originally from Italy, more specifically from the Piedmont region, en el norte del país. It is a very old breed of dog, y quien busque sus orígenes exactos encontrará más preguntas que respuestas. However, it is generally accepted that it is the result of various crosses over the centuries between Italian Setters, Griffons from France, White Mastiffs and Dogs of Greece.

There is evidence that their ancestors already hunted in the Alps and Apennines more than 2000 years. However, the first clear reference to the breed dates back to the Middle Ages, more specifically to the fifteenth century, in the form of a fresco by Andrea Montegna (1431-1506) inside the Ducal Palace of Mantua (Italy), which represents an Italian Spinone. Two centuries later, Jacques Espée of Sélincourt, evoca en su manual The Perfect Hunter (1683) an Italian Griffon from Piedmont.

Popular for centuries in Italy, the Spinone suffered greatly during WWII. The end of hostilities did not mean a notable improvement in their situation, as Italian hunters began to prefer breeds imported from abroad.

In 1949, The doctor. Paolo Branzi and Dr.. Ezio Caraffini founded La Famiglia dello Spinone -which has since become the Italian Spinoni Club- and they had 59 representatives of the breed throughout Italy. They chose 10 de ellos para iniciar un programa de cría destinado a reconstruir la población y estabilizar sus características. They drew up a first standard and contacted the Ente Nazionale della Cinofilia Italiana (ENCI), organismo de referencia del país, to initiate the necessary procedures for the recognition of the breed.

His work paid off, so that in 1955 the Spinone Italiano was recognized by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI). Then it began to spread internationally, although it took a while, especially in North America. Thus, until 1995 el United Kennel Club (UKC) American did not grant him his recognition. The other reference organization in the United States, the American Kennel Club (AKC), did the same in 2000. The Canadian Kennel Club did the same in 2006.

In fact, aunque es bastante común en su país de origen y es el segundo perro de caza más popular en ese país, its international distribution remains limited. However, is quite successful in Britain, where the Kennel Club registers between 400 and 500 births every year. This is far from the case in France.: con menos de diez inscripciones anuales en el Libro de Orígenes Francés (LOF), it is clear that he is far from having conquered the hearts of French hunters.

In United States, las estadísticas del AKC la sitúan en torno al puesto 110 (of 195) en el ranking de las razas más populares del país.

Physical characteristics

The Italian Spinone it's well built, con músculos bien desarrollados y huesos fuertes.

Her body, as high as long, is square in shape and ends in a thick bushy tail. The tail hangs at rest and is horizontal when in action. The legs are solid and end in compact round legs.

The head is egg-shaped, with a curved skull and a muzzle the same length as the skull. El color de la nariz varía entre el rosa de los perros blancos y el marrón de los perros ruanos. The eyes are round, big and far apart. They are of a more or less dark ocher color. Triangular shape, the ears are rather long and fall along the cheeks.

The body of the Spinone está enteramente cubierto de un pelaje rígido y denso, about 4 a 6 cm long, that protects it when it slides through the undergrowth, pero también cuando se lanza al agua fría. It is shorter at the top of the head and at the front of the legs. In the face, a dense coat of thick eyebrows and a full beard, típica de la raza, which also protects it from brambles and bushes. Beneath this top layer is the dog's fur, which has the peculiarity of not having undercoat.

The coat can be plain white, white with orange spots, chestnut or brown, or roan with orange spots, chestnut or brown. Tricolor or black-haired dogs are not accepted by the breed standard.

Last, sexual dimorphism is marked: the male is larger and above all significantly more massive than the female.

Size and weight

    Male size: Of 60 a 70 cm.
    female size: Of 58 a 65 cm.
    Male weight: Of 32 a 37 kg
    female weight: Of 28 a 30 kg

Character and skills

Generally easier to live with than other pointers, the Spinone Italianos they are affectionate and close to their family, they love to play and spend most of the time with them. Although they are hunters, They are not the kind that jump into the open sea and disappear as soon as potential prey catches their eye: they never stray too far from their master, preferring to always have it in sight.

Your affection, patience and playful character make them an ideal breed for a child. He loves children and is an excellent playmate for those old enough to have learned to behave in the presence of a dog. Less recommended for younger children, as it is large enough to inadvertently push them down. In any case, regardless of race, interactions between a dog and a young child should always take place in the presence of an adult.

The Italian griffon also it is sociable with other dogs Griffon, those who are often willingly adopted as playmates. Small animals, as cats, rabbits and other rodents, have more to worry about and are more likely to be hunted as potential prey. However, they may live with a cat if they have been raised with them, pero es probable que este último siga siendo perseguido en el jardín de vez en cuando.

As for humans who are unknown to him, the Spinone is generally cozy with them, especially if he's been well socialized from his early months. In fact, used to living with humans for centuries, es más del tipo que busca activamente su compañía. Also easily suffers from loneliness: although you can spend a few hours alone at home without difficulty, it is not advisable to leave it all for a weekend. Adoptar un perro más puede ser una buena forma de ofrecerle compañía para ayudarle a evitar la soledad cuando su familia está fuera.

He is as active in the early years as he is calm and collected afterward.. This can be seen in his hunting style, that is calm and methodical.

Having said that, if you like to rest on the living room rug, this does not mean that you do not need to exercise. So that you feel comfortable and calm when you get home, your daily walks should total at least one hour. Although they are slower than other signaling breeds, they are very resistant and can adapt to many types of terrain. For this reason, if the opportunity arises to take a long walk of several hours, he is delighted. Durante este último, does not tend to stray far from his master, so it can be walked without a leash. Puede vivir en un apartamento siempre que salga dos o tres veces al día, but its size makes it unsuitable for a small studio.

Prefiere una casa con un jardín en el que pueda retozar y del que se deshaga con gusto de cualquier bicho indeseado. However, it is not convenient for you to live abroad: you need to be in contact with your family and should be able to spend as much time as possible with them.

On the other hand, It is an intelligent breed of dog that likes to be mentally stimulated. Más bien terco y mostrando poco interés en actividades que le parecen inútiles, necesita un líder que le ofrezca ejercicios motivadores. Obedience exercises, agility or hunting are a great way to get his attention and stimulate him. The rapport is also something instinctive in him, and you will not be asked to carry the ball or bat thrown by your master. He does not hesitate to do the same with the toys scattered around the house when he wants to show him that he wants to have fun.

It is also important to know that your beautiful beard gets wet every time you drink. He tends to pour water all over the house whenever he quenches his thirst, so it may be a good idea to put your bowl outside and not inside the house.

Last, although don't hesitate to bark when you see fit, the Italian Spinone it's not overly vocal.

Education

The Italian Spinone, like all dogs, must be socialized from an early age. It is important that you can meet all the people who are part of your close or distant environment (friends, neighbors, family…). You must also face all kinds of situations (walk through different places, meet other dogs or other animals, travel in different means of transport) not to be scared once an adult.

No debería pasar mucho tiempo antes de que empiecen a aprender a domar, lo que puede ser más largo y complicado que para la mayoría de las otras razas.

Given its size once adult, también es útil acostumbrarlo a ser manipulado sin inmutarse desde una edad temprana, so that the grooming sessions are a moment of shared pleasure and not torture for both protagonists.

The Italian griffon he's smart and has a strong personality. You need a firm master who knows how to earn your respect, but even if I do, does not like to do tasks that seem trivial. It's a working dog, al que le gusta ser útil y prefiere aprender, for example, to recover the game before turning around. In fact, if your master knows how to do it and has all the necessary patience, this dog can do wonders, even in obedience and agility competitions. The trick is to motivate you, above all making him understand the interest of the command.

Not surprisingly, it responds much better to positive reinforcement-based dog training methods than traditional dog training.. Know that the fulfillment of what is asked allows you to receive caresses, ánimos y golosinas es a sus ojos una razón legítima para superarse y dar lo mejor de sí mismo.

Health

The Italian Spinone is generally quite robust. Apart from the health problems common to all large dogs and a serious genetic disease, but fortunately in the process of disappearance thanks to the work of the breeders, the risks are low.

Like this, the conditions to which you are especially exposed are :

  • La ataxia cerebelosa, una enfermedad genética que ataca al cerebelo y es el problema de salud más crítico en esta raza. Puppies that have received a carrier gene from both parents die before their first birthday. However, hoy en día es extremadamente rara, ya que los individuos portadores son eliminados de los programas de cría. A breeder of Spinone worthy of the name must be able to show that parents are not carriers, based on test results;
  • Hip and elbow dysplasia, joint problems that make movement difficult;
    gastric dilation-torsion, often related to too fast a food intake, which can be fatal without prompt veterinary intervention;
  • Entropion and ectropion, malformaciones del párpado que pueden corregirse quirúrgicamente si resultan problemáticas;
    Hypothyroidism, a hormonal deficiency that causes a slowdown in bodily functions;
  • Cancer (bone, liver, base…), que según un estudio conjunto del Kennel Club británico y la Asociación Veterinaria Británica de Pequeños Animales es, with difference, the main cause of mortality in this breed, with a 45% of deaths.

What's more, las orejas caídas y peludas del Spinone they get dirty easily. They can become infected quickly if they are not cleaned every week and after each bath.

A pesar de su falta de subpelo y de sus orígenes italianos, se adapta bastante bien a los distintos climas y es resistente tanto al calor como al frío, pero las temperaturas extremas son difíciles de soportar. Es necesario un refugio para que pueda estar a la sombra cuando el termómetro supera los 30°, y no aprecia especialmente pasar la noche en el exterior cuando hay -10°.

Last, the Italian griffon not very prone to obesity, especially if you have enough opportunity to exercise. However, a responsible handler should regularly make sure that everything is in order by taking the time to weigh your dog.

Life expectancy

Of 12 a 13 years

Grooming

The maintenance of Italian Spinone is simple, but it requires some discipline, ya que puede resultar difícil y llevar mucho tiempo si no se hace con regularidad.

The absence of undercoat means that you only lose a small amount of hair. A weekly brushing is enough to remove dirt, remove dead hairs and untangle knots from their fur. The most frequent molt is not necessarily necessary during the fall and spring, since the lack of undercoat makes the shedding not very pronounced. On the other hand, if “forget” one or two grooming sessions, the situation is complicated: debris accumulates and knots form that can no longer be untangled with the brush. Then there is no choice but to undo them manually or even cut them with a chisel. Depending on the state of the coat, this can sometimes take more than an hour.

In any case, rarely need a bath, unless it is especially dirty or smelly after a trip. Except for exceptions, two or three bathrooms a year are more than enough, y cada vez debe utilizarse un champú suave para perros.

Las sesiones semanales de peluquería son también una oportunidad para limpiar los ojos de su perro y cepillar sus dientes. Neither should you neglect the care of the ears: hanging and furry ears tend to catch dirt, so the risk of infection is high. Se pueden limpiar con un paño húmedo.

What's more, beard tends to trap moisture and becomes smelly. Thus, should be towel dried often and cleaned from time to time.

Last, if you spend a lot of time outdoors, wear and tear is usually enough to file the claws of the Italian Spinone, que crecen más rápido que las de la mayoría de los demás perros. If they become too long and may bother or hurt you, deben recortarse con un cortaúñas especial.

Use

The Italian Spinone it is above all a hunting dog, a mission that has been fulfilling for centuries and in which it stands out. Your ability to point methodically, making game disappear and recover makes them very versatile hunting dogs. This is all the more true since, how your name illustrates, derived from the Italian word for bramble, are able to sneak into the thorniest thickets in search of small game. It is also very resistant.

When not used for hunting, can be used to show off their qualities in various dog sports, like agility or obedience. They are also good watchdogs, but their lack of aggressiveness and the fact that they bark very little disqualifies them as guardians. Having said that, es lo suficientemente impresionante como para que la mayoría de los malintencionados pasen de él.

Last, the Italian griffon también es un maravilloso perro de compañía, loving and totally devoted to his family. It can be the ideal companion for an active owner who wants to always have his dog by his side when going for a walk or hiking.

Price

The price of a puppy Italian Spinone is of some 800 a 1000 euros in Europe. In Canada and the United States, is usually between 1500 and 1800 $.

In all cases, there is no noticeable price difference between males and females.

    History

    It is said that the Swiss Hound is among the oldest members of the Group of Hounds. According to a 15th century letter to Ernst, Elector of Saxony (1441-86), Swiss working dogs were among the best. Imágenes del siglo XVII muestran jaurías de sabuesos “with the same color and the same size, large heads and very long ears”.

    Three centuries later, the german dog writer Richard Strebel wrote in “Die Deutschen Hunde” (German dog breeds, 1903-05) que los sabuesos que vivían por separado en una zona restringida de Suiza se desarrollaron por lo tanto por separado.

    In the decade of 1890, parecía que los sabuesos de pura raza estaban marcados para la muerte en Suiza, a pesar de la cría del Schwyz Hound, Bernese Hound and Lucerne Hound. Some hounds were exported to Scandinavia and, thanks to the crossing with native hounds, the Stövares (scandinavian hounds) they were blooming. But at the same time, the Thurgauer Laufhund quietly disappeared in Switzerland, and the Aargauer Laufhund gave way to Jura Hound (Bruno Jura Hound).

    In 1903, J. Dust del Swiss Kennel Club founded the Schweizerische Laufhunde-Club (Swiss Hound Club) and in 1907 an appeal was made to save the Swiss hound of extinction. Then something remarkable happened: the breed club bought good quality Swiss hounds and gave them to prudent breeders and hunters. Test rules and regulations were developed and a series of obligations were established: a) only one dog at a time when hunting; b) el perro tenía que estar bajo control cuando buscara caza; c) un perro que desapareciera durante la caza debía regresar a su amo en el plazo de media hora; y d) el perro debía regresar tan pronto como sonara la bocina, regardless of whether the dog was looking. Using these rules, the breed club tried to exclude disobedient dogs and forced owners to properly breed and train their dogs.

    Four varieties

    The development of Swiss Hound started in the decade of 1930, but it took time and effort. In 1937, only five hounds were entered in the Swiss herd book. The Dr. O. Vollenweider managed to gather 11 hound collectors in the city of Soleura, in northwestern Switzerland. Se seleccionaron perros adecuados para la cría y, in 1933, a breed standard was published. In the standard, the varieties were distinguished by coat color and pattern.

    In 1944, 150 Swiss hounds were entered in a hound exhibition. (Como país neutral, Switzerland did not participate in WWII) It was no longer forbidden to work with dogs that gave tongue, and bloodhounds of more than 20 inches (50 centimeters) to the cross.

    Attempts to save or restore the Laufhund de Argovia they were unsuccessful; in 1933, the breed standard was canceled. Four varieties remained: the Bernese Hound, the Jura Hound (Bruno Jura Hound), the Lucerne Hound and the Schwyz Hound. Their names connect them with cities and areas of Switzerland (Berne, Lucerne, Jura), or with Switzerland.

    It is said that between 1902 and 1922, a few 1.200 swiss hounds, mainly Schwyz Hound white-yellow, they were raised in Norway. Some years, había más sabuesos suizos fuera de Suiza que en su país de origen. In 1993, about 1.000 copies of Lucerne Hound vivían en Suecia.

    France is another importer. Seventy-five Jura Hound (Bruno Jura Hound) enrolled in an exhibition in Lyon in 1976. It is not surprising that the Jura is predominantly found in France and Switzerland, and that it extends to Germany. Since the 15th century, Swiss hounds were also exported to Italy. Según Räber, they frequently crossed paths with his Italian cousin, the Italian short-haired Segugio.

    History

    In the 19th century, in the North Shetland Islands of Scotland, the ancestors of Shetland Sheepdog, often called Sheltie, ayudaban a los rebaños de ovejas y hacían sonar la alarma cuando se acercaban extraños a su granja.

    However, los orígenes exactos de este perro son tan oscuros como la niebla que cubre su tierra natal. Its resemblance to him Rough Collie apoya la teoría de que desciende de estos perros, believed to have been imported from Scotland. However, Colleys breeders and various specialists refute this claim.

    For them, the Sheltie se habrían desarrollado de forma aislada en estas islas, y serían el resultado de diferentes cruces. The races most frequently cited as contributors to its creation are the Icelandic Sheepdog, the Yakki de Groenlandia (an extinct race), the Cavalier King Charles spaniel, the Pomeranian and the Border Collie.

    In any case, at the beginning of the 20th century it was often crossed Rough Collie, which reinforced the resemblance between the two races.

    What is certain is that its small size was the result of the most rational selection work. Similar to the “Pony of Shetland”, known for its miniature size, locals gave preference to animals that needed little food, un bien escaso en esta difícil región.

    Although the Shetland Sheepdog it was especially appreciated in its native islands for its qualities of a sheepdog and alert, fue principalmente su apariencia la que le permitió salir de allí. Visitors to England in the late 19th century were delighted with the small size and texture of the dog's coat. Shetland Sheepdog, and soon they wanted to take something home, which they did. Soon, some locals decided to start breeding for export, selecting breeders for height and coat. More and more individuals set out to conquer Britain and then the rest of the world. However, no existían ni estándares de raza ni consultas entre los diferentes criadores, por lo que la raza se desarrollaba en direcciones a veces muy distantes entre sí.

    Things changed after the official recognition in 1909 by the Kennel Club, the leading organization in Great Britain. El nombre elegido fue simplemente el nombre por el que el perro había sido conocido hasta entonces, the Shetland Sheepdog. This recognition helped to stabilize the breed by establishing a well-defined framework in which the different breeders had to work..

    However, the chosen name was not to the liking of the colleys breeders, who pressured them and won their case in 1914: then it was officially renamed as Shetland Sheepdog.

    In the meantime, los primeros ejemplares habían llegado a los Estados Unidos y, already in 1911, the American Kennel Club (AKC) also accepted it. Was not up 1948 that the United Kennel Club (UKC), the other reference organization in the United States, he did the same. It was followed by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) in 1954, así como por todas las demás instituciones importantes, including the Canadian Kennel Club (CCC).

    Although the Shetland Sheepdog es ahora común en todo el mundo, paradoxically it has become rare on its home island, where it has been replaced by the Border Collie for grazing.

    This decline can also be seen in the rest of Britain. For example, Annual Kennel Club enrollments have dropped from more than 1300 less than 800 in less than a decade.

    The phenomenon is also occurring in the United States, where he now occupies the position 25 (of a little less than 200) on the AKC popularity rankings, basada en el número anual de personas registradas en la organización. In other words, has lost a lot of ground compared to the decades of 1980 and 1990, in which he was almost constantly among the 10 first, reaching a maximum of 40.000 records in 1993. La caída es lenta pero constante, since at the beginning of 2010, todavía estaba en las 20 first positions.

    The race “Father” of the Shetland Sheepdog o “Sheltie” as they are often nicknamed, they are the Border Collie.

Otro color aceptable pero menos común es el Sable Mirlo, that it can sometimes be difficult to distinguish between the regular sable after puppyhood. The Sable merle has patches of dark brown on a light brown background compared to the black and grey blue Merle.

    There are other two colors that are a bit rare, which are unacceptable in the ring. The White Color-headed (mostly white with the head “normally” marked), It is the product of two dogs crossed white facotrados.

    History

    The Schiller Hound It is a working breed that has existed in Sweden since the Middle Ages. However, the breed was not really established and recognized until 1952. This recognition is due in large part to a breeder, Per Schiller, who gave the breed its name.

    In 1886, at the first Swedish dog show, they were shown 189 hounds. Among them were Tamburini and Ralla I, a brother and sister belonging to Per Schiller. Descendían de los famosos sabuesos de la Kaflas estate. These dogs probably came from southern Germany: rather small, fawn in color with black fur and slight white markings.

    Aún muy raro fuera de su país natal, the Schiller Hound was recognized by the Swedish Kennel Club in 1907.

    The Schiller Hound has been traditionally used as a sniffing dog, although some describe it as a hunting dog. The breed is known for both its speed and superior olfactory ability; able to quickly track its prey and then howl loudly when its master approaches, alerting of its position. Es un perro resistente que puede tolerar bien los fríos inviernos suecos. Often, trabajan individualmente en lugar de en una jauría y típicamente cazan conejos y zorros. Even today, many dogs still work as hunters, although they are equally good household pets.
