Swiss Hound
Suiza FCI 59 . Medium-sized Hounds

Schwyz Hound
Schwyz Hound

In the breed standard, the temperament of Swiss hound is described as “Vivacious and passionate By hunting, sensitive, docile and very attached to his master”.

Content

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. Images from the 17th century show packs of hounds “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) that the hounds that lived separately in a restricted area of ​​Switzerland therefore developed separately.

In the decade of 1890, it seemed that purebred bloodhounds were marked for death in Switzerland, despite the breeding 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: to) only one dog at a time when hunting; b) the dog had to be under control when searching for game; c) a dog that disappeared during the hunt had to return to its master within half an hour; y d) the dog was to return as soon as the horn sounded, 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. Dogs suitable for breeding were selected and, 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. (as a neutral country, 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, there were more Swiss Hounds outside of Switzerland than in their country of origin. In 1993, about 1.000 copies of Lucerne Hound they lived in sweden.

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. According to raven, they frequently crossed paths with his Italian cousin, the Italian short-haired Segugio.

History

The Blue Gascony Basset is a basset hound native to southwestern France, whose roots are uncertain. According to hunting historians, He is a contemporary of Mr. Gastón Fébus from the 14th century, like the great blue hounds.

History “Spanish Hound”

Already in the fourteenth century, a dog of this breed was described by King Alfonso XI. But also other documents from this time referred to its existence.

Due to the increasing isolation in the Iberian Peninsula, the breed was kept completely pure and there were no crosses with other dog breeds.

Almost in all probability we are faced with a race descended from the “Canis segusius“, tracking dog used by Celtic peoples settled in central France.
