History

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Physical characteristics

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

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

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

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

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

Character and skills

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

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

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

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

With the kids:

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

The correct nutrition of the Japanese Terrier

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

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

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

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

Japanese Terrier Care

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

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

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

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

    Comments

    It is a very robust breed of dog, that often has a high percentage of Diabetes Mellitus.

    What is Diabetes Mellitus??

    Diabetes is defined as a disorder in the metabolism of the hydrates of carbon, fats and proteins caused by a deficiency of insulin, It can be absolute or relative.

    Insulin is a hormone secreted in the beta cells of the pancreas, whose production allows to control blood sugar (blood glucose levels). Insulin deficiency causes a deterioration in the capacity of tissues to use nutrients, that translates into an increase of glucose in blood (Hyperglycemia).

    Diabetes is classified according to the disease in humans, namely, as type I and type II.

    The type I It is characterized by the destruction of beta cells, What determines the loss progressive and complete end of insulin secretion. Dogs suffering from type I Diabetes Mellitus may have a sudden onset of symptoms due to the rapid loss of the ability to produce insulin. These cases require insulinización from the time of diagnosis and are called diabetics 1,811 (DMID).

    Other dogs may have a gradual loss of insulin secretion, that their beta cells will be destroyed with slow. These animals may have an initial period in which Hyperglycemia is mild or easy control, in which case it's diabetic insulinoindependientes (DMIID), Although in the long term these dogs also need her.

    Diabetes Mellitus type II It is a little more difficult to understand and is characterized by what we call "insulin resistance" and "dysfunctional" beta cells. The secretion of insulin by these cells will be high, low or normal, but not enough to overcome the resistance to it in the peripheral tissues.

    It´s, to explain it in a graphic way, It is as if peripheral tissues do not obey the orders of the insulin or were not able to do what send it.

    In terms of metabolism or synthesis of glucose, These dogs may have DMID or DMIID, namely, need or not insulin according to the magnitude of the insulinorresistencia and functional status of the beta in their ability to produce cells and secrete the hormone in low quantities, normal or high.

    Dogs also recognizes a secondary diabetes, produced by a carbohydrate intolerance (glucose) due to the presence of a disease or a drug treatment that it antagonizes or counteracts the effects of insulin and can lead to the exhaustion of the beta cells of the pancreas with the appearance of diabetes insulinodependiente.

    The owners of diabetic dogs should be aware that the routine in the treatment with insulin and food has to be respected. Two fixed-dose of insulin a day associated with a food palatable to always provide the same source and the same amount of starch, always run at the same time it can reduce the risk of hypoglycemia in diabetic dogs.

    In North America, area where the Australian Terrier is very popular, a research on the incidence of this disease is carried out.

    Two hundred years later, Sir Joshua Reynolds painted a portrait of a young woman stroking a dog similar in appearance to the Scottish Terrier of nowadays. King James VI of Scotland was an important historical figure accompanying the history of the Scottish Terrier. In the century 17, When King James VI became James I of England, sent six Terrier – believes that the precursors of the Scottish Terrier- a French monarch as a gift.

    In the century 19, in the Highlands of Scotland, including the Isle of Skye, the Terrier were abundant, originally known by the generic term “short hair” or ” Skye Terrier“. Towards the end of the century 19, It was decided to separate these Scottish Terrier and develop lines of pure blood and specific breeds.

    Originally, the races were separated into two categories – Dandie Dinmont Terriers and Skye Terrier (Noel Skye Terrier that is known today, but a generic name for a large group of the Terrier with different all features, It came from the Isle of Skye).

    The written history and initial development of the race began at the end of 1870 with the development of dog shows. The exhibition of dogs required compared to a standard of the race and therefore the appearance and temperament of the Scottie was written for the first time.

    At last, The Skye Terrier were divided into what is known today as the Scottish Terrier, Skye Terrier, West Highland White Terrier and the Cairn Terrier.

    Captain Gordon Murray and Shirley were responsible for establishing the type in 1879. Shortly after, in 1879, the Scottie were first exposed at Alexander Palace in England, While the following year they began to be classified in much the same way as is done today. The first written breed standard was written by JB Morrison and DJ Thomson gray and appeared in Vero Shows illustrated book of The Dog, published in 1880. The standard describes the color of the breed as “grey, greyish or Brindle “.

    In 1881, the “Scottish Terrier England club” It was founded, being the first club dedicated to the race.

    The Scottie is the only breed of dog that has lived in the White House more than three times.

    Sealyham Terrier

    Its white color was selected so that the Hounds easily distinguished it from the prey.

    Content

    History

    Its origins and history are better known than those of most other terrier breeds..
    Captain Tucker-Edwards, who lived on his Sealy Ham estate in Pembrokeshire / Wales, He began in the mid-19th century to create a breed that fit his ideas of a dog suitable for hunting badgers., otters and martens. However, It has never been clear which races were actually involved in creating the Sealyham. The Dandie Dinmont Terrier, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, the Bullterrier and the Fox Terrier were probably used to obtain the desired sharp hunting dog, bold, callous and brave.
    After the Captain's death in 1891, her daughter and her friends continued the upbringing. In 1910 the breed was admitted to the championship exhibitions and was therefore recognized as a breed. Soon these vital and intrepid Welsh terriers made a great impression and demand increased..

    Whatever the exact breed mix, the captain had admirable success, creating a fearless and hard-working hunter who was also a charming companion by the fire. The years between the world wars were the heyday of the breed in America. The Sealys they won the Westminster Best Dog Show award three times this time, among them was the most famous show dog of the Prohibition era, a Sealy called bootlegger. His high profile was reinforced by top notch Hollywood owners like Humphrey Bogart, Gary Cooper y Cary Grant.

    The popularity of Sealyham terrier among pet owners has decreased since those heady days, considering the many qualities of the breed. “They could be one of the best kept secrets of dogs”, says a lover of Sealyham terrier. The breed today is slightly larger and more affable than the first-bred terrier terriers bred by Captain Edwardes. Your kindness is very useful as therapists in nursing homes and children's hospitals.

    Physical characteristics

    With less than 31 cm. (12 inches) on the shoulder and an approximate weight of 9 kg (24 pounds) , the Sealyham terrier they are not big enough to be considered medium sized dogs, but they are among the strongest and most substantial small dogs.

    A Sealyham terrier typical is well muscled, shapely, with long and determined steps. Waterproof coat is predominantly white, and her long and wide head is provided with luxurious facial hair. Despite its reputation for being the grossest among short-legged terriers, these terriers are cute, funny, affectionate, outgoing and trainable, although a little stubborn. His attention and his big dog bark make the Sealys excellent guard dogs. Blessed with an adaptable nature, the Sealys are willing to live in the city or in the country.

    Character and skills

    The Sealies are the typical terriers, since they are sure of themselves and curious. However, they are softer and less noisy than other terrier breeds, which makes it easier to live with them.

    The Sealies they are outgoing and friendly, but alert. They tend to be reserved with strangers and are excellent guard dogs with an impressive bark. They respond well to positive training techniques and learn quickly, but their sense of humor often results in adding a smart twist to any command they are asked to perform., especially if they have an audience.

    These are proud dogs that will consider themselves as full and equal members of the family and expect to be treated that way..

    Like every dog, the Sealies need early socialization – exposure to many people, views, different sounds and experiences – when they are young. Socializing helps ensure that your Sealyham Terrier puppy grows up to be a complete dog..

    Sealyham Terrier Health

    The Sealyham Terriers have no significant health problems. However, as with any dog, there are some conditions and diseases that Sealyhams they could be prone, such as lens dislocation and retinal dysplasia.

    Lens dislocation. The lens of the eye can move when the supporting ligament is damaged. Sometimes it can be treated with medication or surgery, but in severe cases it may be necessary to remove the eye.
    Retinal dysplasia. It is a malformation of the development of the retina with which the dog is born. Most cases are mild and there is no noticeable loss of vision. Veterinary ophthalmologists can do tests to determine if puppies are affected when they have 7 a 12 weeks of age. Retinal dysplasia should not affect a dog's ability to function as a companion, but the Sealyhams affected should not be raised.
    Although these ailments are rarely reported in Sealyham Terriers, you should research breeders and find those who do the proper testing at your kennel to make sure you get the healthiest dog possible.

    Sealyham Terrier Care

    The small size and robust construction of the Sealyham terrier make it a good choice for city or country dwellers. It is relatively idle indoors and can adapt to life without a patio, as long as you have walked daily. If you have a patio, must be fenced to avoid chasing other animals or going hunting.

    The Sealyhams they are quite discreet, They're not here “busy” like most terriers. Due to its size, their loyalty to their families and their preference for cool temperatures, they perform better as domestic dogs.

    Like most terriers, to the Sealies they like to dig and bark. This dog is an independent thinker and requires firm and consistent handling., but responds well to training with positive reinforcement techniques like food rewards, praise and play.

    Sometimes the Sealies can be difficult to train at home, but patience and a regular schedule generally brings success.

    Sealyham Terrier grooming

    The Terriers de Sealyham have medium length and weather resistant double coats. The undercoat is dense and soft, while the top layer is hard and lean. The hair around the face and muzzle is very long, compared to the rest of the coat. The Sealyham they are all white, although some have lemon marks, brown or badger on the head and ears.

    To look good, the Sealyham Terriers they should be brushed three times a week to prevent tangles from forming on the long hair of the head, legs and chest. Brushing by hand – plucking off dead hair to stimulate new hair growth – maintains correct hard coat texture, but this can be a laborious process.

    Many pet owners choose to cut their dog's hair. The downside is that the coat becomes much softer and can shed more than just bare fur, that comes off only slightly. You can learn how to trim your Sealy yourself or you can take it to a professional hairdresser.

    Other grooming needs are dental hygiene and nail care.. Brush your teeth Sealyham at least two to three times a week to eliminate tartar buildup and accompanying bacteria. Daily is better.

    Cut her nails once or twice a month, as necessary. If you can hear the click of the nails on the floor, they are too long. Short nails keep your feet in good shape and won't scratch your legs when the Sealyham jump to greet you.

    Start getting used to your Sealyham terrier to have it brushed and examined when it's a puppy. Handle your feet frequently – dogs are sensitive to their feet – and look into your mouth and ears.

    Make grooming a positive experience full of praise and rewards, and will lay the groundwork to facilitate veterinary examinations and other manipulations as an adult.
