English Foxhound History

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

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

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

English Foxhound Education

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

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

The diet of the English Foxhound

The English Foxhound needs a species-appropriate food, what it means: It must contain a lot of meat! Offer your English Foxhound grain-free wet or dry food, where meat is the main ingredient. Particularly for Foxhounds who are hunters, the energy requirement depends largely on the calories actually consumed – on days with long runs up to 15 km, the four-legged friend needs correspondingly more energy. A food with a higher fat content is recommended for the most demanding sports needs. Give your dog the last portion about three hours before a sports session, so you have enough time to digest it before you start. Snacks are rarely necessary even during the longest sports drives. It is important that you Foxhound get a nice meal and a long rest after the job is done. The Foxhound it is a very good food processor – to avoid being overweight, watch your waistline and cut your portions accordingly when you start to gain weight. Dry chews are a welcome change to the four-legged friend's diet. But, avoid feeding the rumen with food, as it is suspected of promoting bloodhound ataxia in Foxhounds.

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

English Foxhound Health

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

Activity with the English Foxhound

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

Caring for the English Foxhound

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

Where can I find an English Foxhound?

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

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

Brazilian Tracker
Brasil FCI 275 . Large-sized Hounds

Rastreador Brasileño

The Brazilian Tracker was a quiet and balanced dog, attached to his master.

History

The Brazilian Tracker It was a breed of dog originating in Brazil, that was recognized by the FCI the 1 in September of 1967 in the Group 6 / Section 1.1 – Large size hounds with number 275. In fact, It was the first Brazilian to be recognized by the FCI breed of dog.

The Brazilian Tracker it's a Scent hound. The breed is also known under the names Urrador (his voice) or Urrador American.

It was developed in the Decade of 1950 by Oswaldo Aranha Filho (In janeiro river), to hunt peccaries (they are pigs of medium-sized and wild that found in all Central and South America), Jaguars, and other types of dams typical of the country.

Aranha Filho combined a number of breeds of hunting from America and Europe along with some native dogs of Brazil to create your dog. The Brazilian Tracker became Brazil's first race and it was what earned it the recognition of international dog associations.

The glory of being a breed officially recognized at the international level lasted barely six years, time in which by neglect and a series of relief, the race was decimated.

At that time there was only one breeder of Brazilian Tracker, Mr Oswaldo Aranha Filho, the creator of the race... And, their copies suffered because of two events, first of all an outbreak of babesiosis.

Babesiosis (or babesiosis) It is a parasitic disease similar to malaria caused by protozoa of the genus Babesia and usually affect pets, especially to dogs. Its name was established in honor of the Romanian biologist Victor Babeş, He was the first to isolate the pathogen. It is the typical disease that is transmitted through a vector organism, usually the tick (Ixodes dammini); in fact, This mite is the same that transmit Lyme disease and, often, both are associated with.

Y, in the second place, many of the dogs suffered poisoning from excess pesticide used by an employee of the farm.

It was exactly in the year 1973, when the Fédération Cynologique Internationale declared the dog breed Brazilian Tracker, officially extinct. Which led to him losing his classification number since, prompted the cancellation of the registration.

Since the FCI and the Brazilian Confederation of Cynophilia They declared this extinct breed, have carried out various efforts and programs of to retrieve it.

Physical characteristics

The standard of the breed of 1970 declaring a size between 62 and 67 cm and very similar in appearance to the Black and tan coonhound.

There have been attempts underway to recreate the race from a mixture of American Foxhound, Black and tan coonhound, and the Small Blue Gascony, English Foxhound, and Bluetick Coonhound.

The Rescue Support Group Brazilian Tracker of Brazil, a club dedicated to the restoration of the breed, Brazil, He devoted himself to organize - aim- a list of forty breeding animals of the correct type as, puediesen be certified as members of the race, in order to restore the race and return to be recognised by the Kennel Club of Brazil.

The re-establishment of the breed, It has not been an easy task, due to the existence of very few pure specimens, and above all by the lack of social interest, There are very few people interested in the recovery of the true Brazilian cultural heritage and the genetics of the breed.

Character and skills

At the moment, the character is not easy to illustrate or define. Efforts to restore the breed continue today., and are being used in breeding programs, breeds used in his development with the descendants of mixed races found in all Brazil.

But, the race again in the various canine clubs list (small) and dog organizations in North America, for the promotion of a rare species for those seeking an unusual pet.

As it's a race in the process of being rebuilt, no data on specific diseases or extraordinary health demands.

The Brazilian Tracker is a hunting dog, not a type of dog that has traditionally been used as a pet.

The copies that exist today, fruit of the reconstruction, they tend to be very independent animals and, sometimes, somewhat stubborn, with a strong instinct of prey that, leads him to chase the small animals that live in the house... But with proper socialization, any dog is a good dog.
