History

The Dogo Canario It is a classic moloso. Es la descendencia de un antiguo y en esta forma antigua sólo se encuentra raramente en Europa Central hoy en día. It has many names: Presa Canario, Perro de Presa, Perro de Toro, Alano o Presa Canario. Dogs of the current type Dogo Canario existían todavía hace 200 years everywhere. They were the old saupackers, bear teethers, guard dogs, butcher dogs, the ancestors of the current great danes, bulldogs, boxers and mastiffs. They are extremely strong and bulky dogs, que aún hoy se resumen como molosos. Ya fueron criados en la antigüedad y siempre han sido muy apreciados. They were used on large farms, with livestock herds or for example on merchant ships such as guard and protection dogs, sirvieron como perros de pastoreo y como perros de caza para jabalíes u osos. They served rulers like Hammurabi as war dogs, they had them carved in stone in full recognition does 3700 years.

Due to its strength, courage and determination, have been used as fighting dogs in the arenas of animal fighting since Roman times. Molossians have a commanding head with a rather short snout and long lips.. The ears are usually worn hanging. Según las tradiciones de la antigüedad en palabras e imágenes, the main characteristics of the molossian have remained essentially the same for thousands of years, pero en los últimos siglos y especialmente debido a la moderna cría de perros, the classic type of molosser has been lost to some extent. In extreme cases strange shapes have been bred with many extremely short folds or snouts such as bulldogs or giants like him Great Dane or the Mastiff. The Dog is still raised in his homeland only for his performance at work.

Therefore, chances are that the Dogo Canario todavía personifique el tipo Molosoide como era común en los viejos tiempos. It is clearly recognized as trotting, pero no sufre de exageraciones cultivadas de ninguna característica o rasgo corporal. Sólo se puede esperar que siga siendo así. Unfortunately, breeders are very much at odds with Dogo Canario. They haven't even managed to agree on a name and a registry office. Since 1991 has been officially considered as “The Canary Presa Dog” entre los símbolos naturales de las Islas Canarias. Meanwhile in 2001 the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture recognized these dogs as a national breed also under the name of Dogo Canario, the same dogs were then provisionally recognized as Dogo Canario by the world federation FCI in 2001 and finally in 2011. Other names are Perro de Presa y Alano. Alano It is an old word that means Great Dane.

Physical characteristics

The Dogo Canario, Perro de Presa, Perro de Toro, Alano o Presa Canario – all designations for the same four-legged friend – he is an elegant dog that radiates athletic power. He is an athletic, muscular, alargado pero sin embargo típico moloso.

The skull-muzzle ratio is approximately 6:4. The upper lip rests a little flaccidly on the lower one. The eyes, medium-sized, they are oval and hazelnut, the ears, high, they are separated from each other and are shaped like a button; únicamente se las amputa para recordar su función original de perro de combate. The neck, long and muscular, shows a slight dewlap. The tail is implanted high: thick at the base, is tuned to the extreme. El vientre está retraído, pero las últimas costillas destacan sólo ligeramente, giving a harmonious harp shape. Limbs are sturdy, muscular and perfectly plumb; angulation of the hind limbs is not very marked.

The difference between male and female bulldogs desired by the FCI standard is therefore unnaturally large. In any case, desires of this standard for outward appearance should not be taken so seriously.

Because fortunately this originally preserved dog breed, robust and healthy has set its standard “por sí misma”, more exactly for their performance at work, and has kept it in the practice of life until today. People, que ahora quiere ponerlo en un estándar de la cría moderna de perros con pedigrí, don't even agree to the principle, as we can see in its history of the breed. La cría moderna de perros con pedigrí no le ha hecho bien a ninguna raza de perro, both in terms of health and character. In old times, the Bulldog fitted with pleasure to the ears, de modo que éstas sobresalían hacia arriba. This is now prohibited. Hoy en día muestran grandes orejas colgantes hacia abajo.

  • Fur: short, without Undercoat, pretty hard.
  • Color: leonado or atigrado. The tabby specimens have a wide range of colors, desde los muy oscuros hasta un gris claro de tono bastante frío.

Character

The Dogo Canario is a quiet dog, equilibrado y seguro de sí mismo. He is a powerful and defensive athlete who can show his performance at any time. Like all molossi, he is extremely kind, tiene nervios fuertes y un alto umbral de estímulo. However, está más ansioso por moverse y no tan letárgico como la mayoría de los molosos criados hoy en día sólo como compañeros. One Dogo Canario well socialized is friendly to people who know and like children. It is very sociable. Towards strangers is at first a little distant without fear. He is an incorruptible guardian, intrépido y protector de su familia sin ser agresivo por sí mismo. The FCI standard describes the character desired by the breed:

Calm appearance; alert look. It is especially suitable as a watchdog… Su temperamento es equilibrado y tiene mucha confianza en sí mismo. Deep barking. He is docile and kind to his family members and with strong ties to his master, but you may suspect strangers. Un comportamiento seguro de sí mismo, elegant and somewhat distant. When you are alert, his attitude is confident and alert.

It must be added that the Dogo Canario rarely barks. But if it barks once, it's pretty awesome.

Entonces este perro dejará gustosamente el papel principal a sus bípedos sin reservas. But it must be filled.

History

Something small and elegant that the Neapolitan mastiff, the Cane Corso (or Italian mastiff) It was used in the past not only as Cattle dog but also in wild boar hunting, and as dog escort on long journeys of traders and, even, as a grip of Bull Dog. It was widespread throughout the southern Italian region and even more so in Calabria, Lucannia, Pugglia, and Sannia, until end interrelating so with history, the tradition, and local legends that, in the Royal Lottery game, the Corsican was assigned the number 22.

Both fierce and determined appearance, as its imposing structure of all the molossians, They seem to be on the agenda of its name, therefore means powerful Corso, robust, strong, and these are, without a doubt, its main characteristics.

Others attribute the etymological origin of the word to Latin “Cohors” or greater guard of the body or to the Greek “kortos”, referring to the fact that he kept and watch people and animals during periods of transhumance. Finally, others see the name associated with the island of Corsica. The truth is that outside of Italy very little is known about the Cane Corso and that even in its country of origin, for years, the race has remained forgotten and ignored. He took that in 1973 Professor Giovanni Bonatti refer to the presence in the province of Puglia in a “molosser dog for short hair, different from the Neapolitan mastiff, similar to the Bullmastiff and similar to the dog's Mallorquin Dam” for a group of enthusiasts to get down to work and try to recover it and make it known inside and outside the country.

In fact its official recognition from the ENCI (Ente Nazionale di Cinophilia Italian) has only taken place in January of 1994, Once the table of work of the società  Amatoria Cane Corso (SACC) provide sufficient documentation, photos, data and a large group of typical specimens to defend its existence and ancient origin.

It is almost always difficult to make History of the history of a dog breed, but in the case of the Cane Corso there was enough documentation that revealed its presence since ancient times in the southern part of what is now Italy. Certainly had to be traced back to many centuries ago, Learn about the legends of the inhabitants of the Mezzogiorno, investigate its folklore and more ingrained traditions, Learn about its history, the superstitions of an entire people, but, finally, After many years of intense and arduous research, Professor Fernando Casolino, of the SACC, He managed to gather enough data to this impressive animal because they have been many, many written and pictorial references that have been found about this dog. It should be noted some dating as far back as the 15th and 16th centuries, such is the case of the burlesque poems written in Italian mixed with Latin by the Benedictine friar Folengo or the quotes in the “Of Quadrupelibus“, the renowned physician and naturalist Gessner, known as the “German Pliny”, without forgetting the very detailed description of the illustrious Valvassone, that showed his power and the strength of their jaws in the “Poem of the head”.

In the 18th century, the count of Leclerc, Georges Buffon, mentioned you in your “Natural history” as well as did Oronzio Costa in his Treaty on “The fauna of the Kingdom of Naples”, published in 1839. Thirty years later Palumbo wrote also about our protagonist in his “Catalog of mammals of Sicily”.

Quotations continued to be frequent and already in 1900 Spalikowski mentioned him in his work “Evolution of the dog in the human society“, of essential reading for all lovers of dogs; much closer in time are the articles and works published by Fiorenzo Fiorone, Danilo Mainardi, Bonatti Mizzoli and how does not, my good friend Mario Perricone, who in the “Great encyclopedia of the dog” published by Agostino in 1987, He wrote widely on race, in which the most important monographic article on the Cane Corso is considered. Recently also of Priscus and Johson cite you in the “Canine Lexicon” referring to him as “a recreation of the old Marcellaio Cane”, under the heading of “Sicilian Branchiero”, explaining that it existed exclusively in Sicily and that it was known for its particular way of moving in front of the herd, so according to the authors it could even be related to the German bullenbeiser and that “on the island he functioned as a butcher dog and herd driver of unique abilities” What, at a time “He could participate in bulls fighting just as did it other dogs of butchers in the continent”.

Priscus and Johson they also claim that in the eighties they arrived to the United States.UU. the first puppies imported by a Sicilian farmer who died soon after and which constitute the scant breeding base in that country.

They have been missing many years of work and staff of a few efforts to again talk of Italian Corso Dog, race so ancient and so deeply linked to the traditions and the history of the South of Italy and properly recover virtually from scratch. There was, in fact, There were many contradictions about which dog truly resembled and contained the very essence of the Cane Corso and it took many debates and many discussions to finally agree on which specimen the foundations of the new breeding lines should be based on..

Gone are all agreed on a male name “Dauno” that summed up the very essence of the race and that traced the path to be followed by those who, with a passion beyond doubt wore years looking for precisely this path. It was decided to locate up to three closely related subjects in order to establish the characteristics of the breed., just as the Ballota professors had described it, Bonatti and Casolina.

After exhaustive research studies and, at the end, not without major sacrifices, the recovery programme was gradually bearing fruit. In 1988, the ENCI Board of Directors decided that the time had come to gather as many copies as possible, produced by people not linked to that society both the scope of the SACC, and carry out a pilot trial in order to check homogeneity of type, of construction and character and its similarity with the characteristics described in the draft standard that the SACC had presented to them. In three exhibitions-Bari, Florence and Milan- the judges Morsiani, Perricone and Vandoni examined fifty copies; then, in the autumn of that same year the SACC presented the ENCI the outcome of the first census carried out by the Lords Bruno and Indiveri which is didn't data out of a total of 57 perfectly typical and rustic specimens already registered.

Did you know??

The Cane Corso is also known as Dogo di Puglia, that means “Dog Puglia”.

As result of this effort the ENCI promulgated the opening of a “Open book” in which all adult specimens that had been duly tattooed could be registered, and therefore recognized as conforming with the standard project and in just four years became part of the same over 500 dogs, so it was clear that the recovery program had been successful.

Such results finally gave rise to the official recognition of the race in January of 1994.

Modernity and the decline of the work for which it was intended, have not prevented this race from maintaining its characteristic gifts. He continues to be a dog with a tenacious temperament but does not bite for anything. It is one of the best races of property protection. If you are very fond with the owner can be very sensitive to your mood.

Character and skills

His character affable and faithful with their own. His psychological balance and extreme functional versatility that allows you to adapt to everything, He is doing to gain more followers and indeed again used you in grazing and foster as old tasks, and also in the hunt, although little by little it is gaining a preferential position as a companion animal and in what has been called therapy with domestic animals (“pet therapy”).

However, for its size and extraordinary force Cane Corso owner should be able to educate from the first moment to always have it under control, in such a way that never conflicts surprises or, It must learn from puppy what is right and what not, What is prohibited and what is allowed, so that later there will be no setbacks, recommending further vocational training of certain circumstances, provided that the dog has acquired a certain degree of maturity, Therefore we must not forget that, in the case of molossians, their psychological development is always slower than the physical.

Aware of its size and appearance, corso usually does not express nervousness and willingly accepts to any person that his own master will accept either. When he is assigned the custody of a property his balanced temperament allows her always from a background, with great discretion, and only in the case of real necessity, act and attack. Thus we can conclude that the Cane Corso is an impressive animal, balanced and effective in any task requiring him. There is a legend made reality.

Cane Corso's Education

With patience and sensitivity
The Cane Corso is not a beginner dog and only belongs to responsible hands. Learn quickly and with pleasure if you treat it with patience and sensitivity during training. If it is to be kept as a family dog, Cane Corso's protective instincts should not be encouraged during training. Early and comprehensive socialization is especially important, so that the dog gets used to other people and animals and reacts calmly in all situations.

Care of Cane Corso

Cane Corso's coat is shiny, smooth and short, and does not require extensive cleaning. Cane Corso has a thin undercoat that can protect it from the cold at times. A massage sponge or soft brush should be used regularly to stimulate blood circulation. – this ensures a healthy and shiny coat.

Nutrición Cane Corso

Only with high meat content
With prepared food, pay attention to a high meat content, low grain content and high quality. An adult dog needs enough fresh meat and vegetables for a healthy diet.. Young dogs, on the other hand, should not be fed too much protein. Foods that are too high in protein can promote growth too quickly and encourage skeletal diseases. Food should be divided into two meals a day. One of them must be given directly after the daily walk. In this way the dog gets its reward after the “work done”.

The life expectancy of the Cane Corso

Cane Corso can reach a relatively high age, what is really unusual for such large dogs. A healthy and active dog will easily reach the age of 10 to 14 years, as long as you exercise a lot and have a balanced diet. This robustness and long life expectancy compared to other larger dog breeds are due to the strong bone structure and robust construction.

Buy Cane Corso

Serious breeders offer not only a pedigree with a complete record of the dog's ancestors, but also a complete advice that goes beyond the purchase. Before buying or reserving a puppy, exhaustive information must be obtained from the local authority to know what conservation regulations exist.

History

Dogs like breed Shar Pei have existed in southern China for centuries, quizás desde la dinastía Han alrededor del 200 A.C. Los arqueólogos han encontrado estatuas de ese período que muestran un perro similar al Shar-Pei. Later evidence includes a 13th century document referring to a wrinkled dog.

The first Shar-Pei they were farm and working dogs. They watched over property and livestock, they hunted and herded flocks. The Shar-Pei was a guardian of the house otherwise, as well. His purple tongue, shared with another race, the Chow Chow, y su piel arrugada se creía que ahuyentaba a los espíritus malignos. In addition to being working dogs, the Shar Pei fighting dogs were also popular. Their loose fur and rough fur made it difficult for the other dog to hold on to them..

Life has always been hard in China, but for the Shar Pei became very dangerous after the communist takeover in the early 20th century. En la República Popular China, los perros eran un símbolo de un pasado decadente y fueron prácticamente eliminados en la década de 1950. Only a few remained in rural areas, así como en Hong Kong (todavía bajo dominio británico en esa época) and in Taiwan, además de unos pocos que habían sido exportados a los Estados Unidos en 1966.

In 1973, a Hong Kong breeder named Matgo Law appealed to Western dog aficionados to help save the breed, it was on the verge of extinction. The unusual wrinkled dogs sparked an enthusiastic interest in Americans and quickly became “the” perro que había que tener. The Shar Pei were fully recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1992.

Character and skills

The Shar Pei he's a little snobby. He's naturally reserved with people he doesn't know and stays aloof once they're introduced. Extensive socialization at a young age is necessary to prevent it from becoming too territorial or aggressive. Only family members receive the overwhelming devotion of this independent dog., alert and intelligent that watches the world go by in a calm and dignified way.

One Shar Pei it's quiet in the house. It is a remarkable watchdog and rarely barks unless it is playing. If they hear it, les convendría ir a ver qué es lo que le ha llamado la atención. A short, quick walk meets your exercise needs.

It is a strong and confident dog that learns fast, así que no posponga el entrenamiento. The Shar Pei is independent and strong-willed. Sea firme pero nunca duro o físico con él. Teach him from the beginning to accept grooming procedures like trimming nails, limpiar los oídos y cepillar los dientes.

Whatever you want from a Shar Pei, look for one whose parents have nice personalities and who has been well socialized since the puppy's young age.

Health of the “Shar Pei”

All dogs have the potential to develop genetic health problems, just as all people have the potential to inherit a particular disease. Run, do not walk, from any breeder that does not offer a health guarantee on puppies, to tell you that the breed is 100 percent healthy and has no known problems, or tell you that your puppies are isolated from the main part of the home for health reasons. A reputable breeder will be honest and open about the breed's health problems and the incidence with which they occur in their lines..

The Shar Pei have many health problems, and their owners can develop a close relationship with their vet. Concerns include hip and elbow dysplasia; patella dislocation; Hypothyroidism; eye problems such as entropy, retinal dysplasia and glaucoma, allergies and infections of the skin folds.

A unique problem is a disease called c fever, a condition in which the dog experiences periodic fevers and its hock joints swell. Accompanying signs may include lethargy, vomiting, diarrhea and shallow breathing.

Not all of these conditions are detectable on a growing puppy, and it is impossible to predict if an animal will be free of these diseases, so you must find a reputable breeder who is committed to raising the healthiest animals possible.. Must be able to produce independent certification that the dog's parents (and grandparents, etc.) have been examined for common defects and considered healthy for breeding. That's where health records come in..

Careful breeders screen their breeding dogs for genetic diseases and breed only the healthiest, best-looking specimens., but sometimes mother nature has other ideas and a puppy develops one of these diseases despite good husbandry practices. Advances in veterinary medicine mean that in most cases dogs can still live a good life. If you are going to have a puppy, ask the breeder about the ages of the dogs in their lines and what they died of.

Remember that after you have welcomed a new puppy into your home, has the power to protect you from one of the most common health problems: the obesity. Keep a Shar Pei with proper weight is one of the easiest ways to extend your life. Make the most of your preventive skills to help ensure a healthier dog for life.

Grooming requirements depend on each Shar Pei. Weekly brushing can meet the needs of both the variety of “shorthair” like the type “brushed” (slightly longer), but some Shar Pei of either type can be prone to skin problems. Dogs with skin problems may need a weekly bath and daily brushing.

All the Shar Pei need regular wrinkle care. Las arrugas deben ser limpiadas con un paño húmedo y luego secadas completamente para prevenir infecciones. Do not oil the skin.

The Shar Pei they have small ears, apretadas y triangulares que los predisponen a problemas crónicos de oído porque no hay suficiente aire circulando en el estrecho canal auditivo.

History

The Great Dane is the oldest breed in modern dog breeding in Germany. Since then it is considered by many as the Apollo among dogs – after the greek deity. And in fact, the Great Dane it is a dog with a special charm and a unique and impressive charisma and elegance. The origin of this breed is only partially found in Germany. Already in the 16th century the Great Danes are said to have originated in England, as described in historical sources “crossing the mastiff with the irish greyhounds”. The name “Dogge”, the old english word for dog, from which the current “Dog”, also speaks of a British line of descent. However, this type of dog was already bred in ancient times and was depicted on stone tablets.

Also on the European continent, old bull teethers regularly mated with greyhounds and hunting dogs, since these results of the crosses were perfectly adapted to the great hunts of the boar nobility, bears and wolves. Little by little, a breed of its own with molossi developed., Greyhound and some hunting dog blood. In 1867 the viennese cynologist Leopold Fitzinger distinguished three variants of Great Dane: the common mastiff, english and danish. Even today the great danes They are called “Great Dane” in some languages. Modern analyzes by geneticists confirm the views of ancient cynologists about ancestors, and even assign them to greyhounds instead of molossians.

In 1888 the Club of the Great Dane In Berlin. It is the first and oldest pedigree dog breeding club in Germany.. The Great Dane modern should now become a representative companion and protector. It also, should be even more elegant. So the standard was adapted to these ideas. It was possible to achieve an extremely elegant and harmonious mix of these very different origins.. The Great Dane combines the elegance and speed of hounds with the power and carefreeness of the molossians.

Physical characteristics

The Great Dane it is an extremely large and powerful dog but at the same time very elegant and sensitive. A male dog reaches a height at the cross of 80 cm., often even more. Bitches are slightly smaller. The Great Dane has a unique charisma. The animal painter and dog connoisseur Richard Strebel already betrayed 1914 to the breeders of the Great Dane, the: “… they have created a dog that can be considered without exaggeration as the most successful in size, proportion, strength and graceful movement never created in dogs.” Unfortunately, this respect is not always shown in breeding Great Dane. Regardless of your health, are used for extreme breeding, the so-called gigantism, as well as for games with defective genes for rare coat colors; genes that can also cause serious illness.

While around 1900 the height at the withers for males was 76 – 80 cm., the FCI standard valid today says “at least 80 cm.” no clear upper limit. This allows the Great Dane reach the dubious honor of the world's largest dog. According to the Guinness Book of Records, this was the male Great Dane “Gibson” with 108 height cm. That was in August 2004. Gibson still reached an age of almost 7 years, but the last years only in 3 legs. His record was expanded more and more.

“Zeus” de Michigan / EE.UU. reached a height of 112 cm and died with just 5 years, supposedly already in old age – Dubious records at the expense of dog welfare. The Great Dane it's impressive enough even without those dubious extremes. Its sovereign and elegant appearance is also highlighted by its silky coat. It is a very short coat, which is close to the muscular body with a slight shine. Colors are yellow or black, blue, tabby or stained.

  • Fur: Satin.
  • Color:
  • – Tawny: yellow golden colour with black mask. The eyebrows and edges of the eyes must be black, While the ears and the tail may be clearer.
    – Striped: Fawn and black in a striped pattern.
    – Blue: Dark steel grey, allowing white markings on chest and legs.
    – Negro: Jet Black pure, allowing white markings on chest and legs.
    – Harlequin: White with black patches. The Great Dane is the only breed to display this color pattern on its coat..

  • Size: the minimum height for males is 80 cm and for the females of 72 cm.

Character

The Great Dane is often described as a gentle giant, but it is naturally protective when the situation requires it. He is loving and loves people, and those qualities should never be perverted by encouraging aggressive behavior.

In terms of character and size the Great Dane a dog is not for beginners. Belongs exclusively to the hands of experienced dog owners, who can and want to be fully involved with the animal. So there is no more inspiring companion than this dog. El Canciller del Reich Otto von Bismarck, who was accompanied by great Danes all his life, he openly admired the intelligence and abilities of his great danes and is said to have said: “I have great respect for my dog's knowledge of human nature – it is faster and more complete than me.”

Great Danes love children, but they must learn to be nice to them. And a blow from that wagging tail will knock a little boy down, so it's important to monitor their interactions. These large dogs can also learn to get along with other pets., especially when raised with them.

A fenced yard is necessary to prevent the Great Dane go for a walk alone. Not usually a jumper, so a six foot fence should be enough to keep it contained. Note that while adult Great Danes are quite calm, puppies are very active and enjoy digging in gardens..

You might think that the Great Dane it is more suitable for outdoor life due to its huge size, but it's just the opposite. Should be an indoor dog that is part of the family. When that's the case, the Great Dane is loving, learns well and is easily trained. Left to his own fate, the amount of destruction it can do to your home and garden is beyond imagination.

any dog, no matter how pleasant it, detestable levels can develop barking, excavation, counter-browsing and other undesirable behaviors if you are bored, untrained or unsupervised. And any dog ​​can be a test that live during adolescence. In the case of the Great Dane, years “adolescence” they can start at six months and continue until the dog is about two years old.

Start training your puppy the day you bring him home. Even at eight weeks old, He is able to absorb everything you can teach you. Don't wait until you are six months old to start training or you will have to deal with a stubborn dog. If possible, Take it to a trainer when you have between 10 and 12 weeks, and socializes, socialice, socialice. However, Note that many kinds of training puppies require certain vaccinations (such as kennel cough) stay up to date, and many veterinarians recommend limited exposure to other dogs and public places until puppy vaccinations (including rabies, distemper and parvovirus) They are completed. Instead of formal training, You can start training your puppy to socialize at home and among family and friends until immunizations are completed in the puppy.

Talk to the breeder, Describe exactly what you want in a dog and ask for help choosing a puppy. Breeders see puppies daily and can make incredibly accurate recommendations once they know something about their lifestyle and personality.

The Great Dane perfect doesn't come fully formed out of the puppy box. It is a product of his background and upbringing. Look for one whose parents have good personalities and who have been well socialized since the puppy's young age.

Great Dane fitness

The maintenance of Great Dane it is very complex and expensive. Food in the required quality and quantity, possible veterinary and drug costs, direct and indirect transportation costs and more require a financially wealthy owner. Yes a Great Dane wants to sit on the couch, you need all the two-seater, at least. Furniture made of solid faux leather has proven its worth here. The Great Dane should not be kept in a small apartment, Better is a house with a garden. The ideal would be to live in a rural area. Hectic urban centers are not the place where these big dogs feel comfortable. Also dog and owner are often met with rejection and even open hostility here. This must be considered.

Scooby Doo

Fiction has made it one of the best-known dogs to the general public.. Scooby Doo character is a Great Dane.

The Great Dane it is a big dog that wants to have a lot of movement. However, he is hardly ever seen on the street, although with 1.200 puppies a year ranks ninth on the VDH bestseller hit list (German Canine Federation), even before dog breeds like the Bernese Mountain Dog or the Chihuahua, they are seen much more often on the streets. Often these giants are only locked up once they are past their puppy age and - poorly socialized and educated.- can no longer be managed by the owner who is not familiar with dogs. The Great Dane not a kennel dog. He is basically a family dog ​​and wants and needs the loving connection with his human family. Is smart and responsive. One should not think about what to do if this big dog, at times of 90 kg, is sick and has to be loaded. Therefore, buying a Great Dane must be carefully considered.

Great Dane Education

The Great Dane a dog is not for beginners. Its strength and potential danger require expert and loving socialization, education and guidance already in the puppies. It is sensitive and intelligent and does not forgive any mistakes of the owner so quickly. She likes to be guided and educated, but not by any means of coercion. Many normal dog training aids do not work with the Great Dane, simply because it is too strong. In case of doubt, even the strongest man will not wear the leash. Due to overexploitation and unilaterally oriented breeding selection towards outward appearances, today there are, although extremely rare, specimens with idiopathic aggressiveness, which then represent practically insoluble problems for an education.

Great Dane Health

Great Danes also suffer from a high incidence of cardiomyopathy, a disease of the heart muscle that causes the heart to enlarge. This is very common in many giant dogs, and when it occurs late in life, can often be controlled with medication. Have your dog's heart checked at least once a year, and that any unusual murmurs or symptoms be investigated by a board-certified veterinary cardiologist. This condition can also be genetic., but currently available tests can only rule out the dog at the moment; a dog could shed one day and develop heart disease the next.

Great Danes can also suffer from hip dysplasia, a crippling malformation of the hip socket that may require expensive surgery to repair and can result in painful arthritis later in life. Another genetic problem with an imperfect screening test, The best prevention for hip dysplasia at this time is to buy only a puppy whose parents have been tested with normal hips and who have very few close relatives with the disease.. Keep your dog slim, especially when young, can also help.

Another painful bone disease is hypertrophic osteodystrophy., that occurs during the puppy's rapid growth phase. Ask Your Vet About Large Breed Puppy Foods. These diets are formulated to help puppies grow slowly., which can help prevent developmental orthopedic problems.

Cancer is another major cause of death in the Great Dane, especially bone cancer. They are also prone to other skeletal problems, visual and neurological, both older and younger.
Not all of these conditions are detectable on a growing puppy, and it is impossible to predict if an animal will be free of these diseases, so you need to find a reputable breeder who is committed to raising the healthiest animals possible. Must be able to produce independent certification that the dog's parents (and grandparents, etc.) have been examined for common defects and considered healthy for breeding. That's where health records come in..

Careful breeders screen their breeding dogs for genetic diseases and breed only the healthiest, best-looking specimens., but sometimes mother nature has other ideas and a puppy develops one of these diseases despite good husbandry practices. Advances in veterinary medicine mean that in most cases dogs can still live a good life. If you are going to have a puppy, ask the breeder about the ages of the dogs in their lines and what they died of.

Remember that after you have welcomed a new puppy into your home, has the power to protect you from one of the most common health problems: the obesity. Keep a Great Dane with a proper weight is one of the easiest ways to prolong your life. Make the most of your preventive skills to help ensure a healthier dog for life.

Great Dane care

The Great Dane has a short coat, thick and smooth. Falls moderately, in other words, more than you might think, but it requires little cleaning. Brush into Danish weekly with a rubber glove or soft bristle brush to keep hair and skin healthy. In spring and autumn, will have a heavy shed, known as “blow” coat and will need to be brushed more frequently during that time to get rid of all loose hair.

Bathe Danish as you like or only when it gets dirty. With the gentle dog shampoos available now, you can bathe a dane weekly if you want without damaging his coat.

Nutrition / Food

The Great Dane consume large amounts of food. At the same time, this food must be of a very high quality and must be selectively composed during the growth phase, which lasts up to two years. When it comes to eating, sometimes it is very rustic. Certainly not all, but some great danes don't have the best “Table Manners”. So it may occasionally happen that the dog, as well as the feeding place should be cleaned after eating. How to minimize the risk of stomach torsion in this predisposed breed through proper feeding management is very important.

Life expectancy

Life expectancy Great Dane has increased slightly from the extremely low level of 2004 with 6 years and 6 months to 7 years, according to British Kennel Club statistics. As a general rule: the bigger and more unusual the coat color, less will be the life expectancy. Already at the age of 8 years a Great Dane he's officially considered an old man nowadays. Without gigantism and healthy breeding it could have a life expectancy of 10 to 12 years.

Buy a Great Dane

Broholmer
Dinamarca FCI 315 - Molossoid - Dogo

Broholmer

The Broholmer It was used as a watchdog for large farms and feudal lands.

History

The Broholmer it's interesting, partly because it is a very old breed of dog whose ancestry in the Danish royal house dates back to the time of Frederick II and Christian IV. King James I of Scotland reportedly, in relation to his marriage to the daughter of Frederick II in 1589, honró a la corte danesa con unos magníficos perros de tipo mastín. Estos perros ingleses se aparearon con los perros que Federico II ya tenía. The type of dog was named “The Great Danish Dog” since the Viking Age, that is to say, a few 400 years before Frederick II.

We begin our historical review around 1850 at the Renaissance castle of Broen Broenne in Gudme. Aquí es donde el chambelán Niels Frederik Bernhard Sehested (1813-1882) decided to reinstate and re-breed the old Danish dog, since the breed was about to become extinct at this time.

Para promover la cría del perro, ordenó criar cachorros a diez personas en el país. However, existía la condición de que uno debería prometer seguir la cría. In this way, el perro se hizo ampliamente utilizado y se convirtió en un perro muy común y preciado.

Un viejo diario decía: The Broholmer it has become an ordinary dog ​​in Denmark and especially on the streets of Copenhagen.

The Broholmer also had its importance among royalty. King Frederick VII and Countess Danner had several broholmers. Both the king and the countess appreciated the breeder and were represented with their dogs on numerous occasions..

Unfortunately, early twentieth century, this breed lost a lot of ground. Dog disease, epidemics and inbreeding problems killed many dogs. Después de esto, the tracks of these adorable dogs almost disappeared, until in 1974 The alarm rang.

El Danish Kennel Club comenzó una búsqueda nacional de broholmers, and he found some dogs similar to broholmers, para que se pueda comenzar un trabajo de cría real.

Although only a few dogs were found, lograron comenzar un trabajo de cría. The result of this work are the dogs that exist today in Denmark, whose owners are recommended to be members of the Broholmerselskabet.

Since 1974, un comité de cría bajo el Danish Kennel Club ha sido responsable de la planificación de la cría del criador. In 1996, el Broholmerselskabet, in collaboration with the Danish Kennel Club, obtained a valid cooperation agreement from the 1 in January of 1997, which meant that the members and dogs of the Broholmerselskabet were on their way to becoming a formal part of the Danish dog job. El acuerdo de cooperación con DKK cumplió los deseos de sus miembros expresados ​​en las reuniones de miembros en todo el país en 1995. The race was on the way to recognition.

The Broholmer has been recognized as a Danish national breed and has been granted international approval, el pedigrí de la FCI, so breed approved dogs can now be showcased at DKK shows. This means that it can display broholmers on par with other breeds of dogs. Esto ahora ha resultado en el hecho de que varios broholmers ya han recibido el título de Campeón Danés y Campeón Internacional.

The Broholmer it has also been internationally approved, meaning puppies can be sold to foreign stakeholders.

Many breeds of dogs changed their appearance in the years around the last century and had to bow to various models., which in some cases caused problems that they then had to deal with. The Broholmer no ha sido objeto de ninguna ilusión de moda de ningún tipo. The standard is, with some changes, the same one that Sehested wrote.

History

The Bullmastiff It is a British breed of dog, as believed, comes from the crossing between races English mastiff and Bulldog.
The race originated official in Britain at the end of the 19th century and the first standard (description of the set of racial characteristics) data of 1924, date on which was adopted by the British Kennel Club. Subsequently, the American Kennel Club, the Canadian Kennel Club, the Kennel Club Sheiko, the Australian Kennel Club and the Federation Cynologique Europèene itself drafted other standards, similar in concept, although, some of them show some differences.

In the past, the Bullmastiff It was used in England as guardian of the large private landowners hunting grounds, in order to pursue and apprehend poachers; the dog Peiki developed its activity of harassment and demolition pushing the thieves with the weight of his body and throwing them on top, to immobilize them, without using his powerful mouth. The reason why the attack of this dog materialized in the use of bodily force but not in the bite was given by the Forest Laws that have prevailed since the 12th century in England..

It should be said that even when the breed is officially defined as originating in the United Kingdom, the truth is that long before its adoption as such race by part of the Kennel Club and the making of his racial standard (that has changed very little since its adoption in the year 1924), the truth is that in the Iberian Peninsula there were specimens of similar morphology, as evidenced by engravings by Goya (c.1800) and, even more so the oil of great proportions, entitled “Courtyard of horses in the ancient square of Madrid, before the Bullfight”, Manuel Castellanos, dating of 1853 and that it portrays two dogs that well could pass through Bullmastiff modern.

In fact, much earlier, they already existed “Bull dogs” in the Iberian Peninsula who were highly appreciated for their bravery and might; so much so that Catherine of Aragon herself, When he travelled to England to marry Henry VIII took, as part of his regalia, several of these animals to be used beyond, hobby that became very fashionable then and that continued to be highly appreciated in the times of Elizabeth I and Mary Stuart.

Short hair, his cloak can be Griffon, covering all shades from sand to liver red, or striped.

the typical male, when it reaches its full physical development, for the three and a half years of age, comes to measure between 63,5 and 68,5 cm to the cross with a weight between 49,5 and 59,5 kg.

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, it was an animal that only accepted the challenge of larger animals such as bears., bulls and even Lions.

The origin of the name is due to the fact of being a dog butchers, that is to say, its function was to run the bulls, for believing that his meat was softer that way. Although it is probably a deformation of the name Band Dog or "Hardened 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 Dutch bulldog; race of which Bulldog inherited its flattened snout as well as its plump muscles.

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 loaded with muscle and shouldn't have any fat on his ribs. All this translates into a very powerful and imposing appearance.

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 wholeheartedly devoted to humans. He greets his family and all the people he has held close to his heart at some point in his life with exuberant warmth.. It´s, mostly, 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 embarrassed. 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.

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 its caregiver with only facial expressions and eye movements.

History of the BOXER

The Boxer It is a breed of working and companion dogs., medium-sized, of German origin. Obtained through the crossing of an Bullenbeisser and Bulldog.

Most canine historians agree that the Boxer has ancestors in dogs. Bullenbeisser. The Bullenbeisser (or out of bulls) they were hunting dogs, used for the hunting of the pig, wild boar and deer. Such expeditions for the hunting of wild animals used to cost the lives of several dogs., the game was horrible and painful both people and dogs (not to mention for wild boars). Some sources say that these huge medieval dogs had erect ears and large teeth., that would be used to hold the animal by the muzzle. It is likely that hunters cut off their ears in the way they do in some countries today., since this custom would seem to be in accordance with the primitive customs of those times.

Within a more civilized and utilitarian way, the ancestors of the Boxer were frequently used as butchers dogs, due to its ability to hold to a bull and lead him toward his barn, if he became rebellious. It is believed that the famous reputation of a so-called dog “Boxl”, used by a Berlin butcher is what gave the breed its name. The derivation of the word Boxer as the name for a purebred dog is ironic, Since the word “boxl” or “boxel” as translation, in essence, mestizo.

With animal protection laws has allowed the dog to submit without cutting of ears and the tail of these animals, but in the standard of beauty, It looks more the Boxer cut ears and tail. Flat, drooping ears on both sides of the head, give it a character “the eternal puppy”.

The Boxer has a short coat, bright and smooth, Griffon or striped color (standard, black or red, though these colors are scarce). Sometimes it has white spots (collar, chest and gloves), Although the all-white Boxer has been considered as a genetic defect, While the initial progenitor (Meta Von Der Passage) was white.

White Boxer comments

The Boxer are susceptible to tumors. Among its possible problems is also dysplasia. They suffer from epilepsy. Many of them are usually sensitive skin and suffer from some type of skin disease; allergic dermatitis is the most common.

The white Boxer tend to be most susceptible to hereditary diseases, Since it is considered a failure of the crossing, These Boxer can not participate in any competition. The occurrence of these diseases is not high, and if this is added that the puppy will be purchased from a breeder, It provides all the certificates of health for their copies, much increases the chances of having a healthy animal.

The Boxer white They are not as appreciated as brown or another color. Said that they are not entirely of pure-bred, but this is not true. These dogs are equal to each other, but in another color. Given that may suffer from various health problems, not appreciate them much, but if the dog does not have any problem it is like any other. If you have a health problem we must not think that it is a dog mestizo or that it is not completely pure. In addition the Boxer White It is not accepted by the F.C.I.

In the Boxer breed, white markings are produced by the semi-recesivo gene sw. The Golden or atigrados Boxer with white markings carry a single copy of sw. The white Boxer lead 2 copies of sw. (Note: the white Boxer are not albinos. Albinism is determined by a different gene and exemplary albinos, Unlike in the Boxer white, they completely lacking pigmentation).

Unfortunately, the white color produced by the 2 copies of sw is associated with problems of deafness in a not inconsiderable percentage of cases. This type of deafness is set in the puppy in their first weeks of life, starting when the ear canal is still closed. The process is complex, but it can be summarized by saying that it occurs because of the absence of pigment-producing cells (melanocytes) in the inner tissues of the ear. The Boxer of gold or brindle color does not present any problem of deafness.

This type of deafness is not exclusive to the Boxer White, that is also produced in other breeds that are white for the same reason genetic (This is, the lead 2 copies of sw), for example the Dalmatian, White Bull Terrier and other.
