    Francia FCI 33 . Small-sized Hounds

    Grand basset griffon vendéen

    Content

    History

    The Grand basset griffon vendéen have been through more than 400 years of evolution to produce today's French hounds.

    In general, French hounds developed into the breeds they are today forming to fit the particular needs of their geographic areas. The dense region, thorny and rocky area of ​​the Vendéée required a hardy breed of dog with mental and physical toughness and a coat that resisted brambles. It also, lower-class hunters who did not own horses needed a slower hound to keep up. His solution was to shorten the dog's legs and, through evolution and breeding, a short dog was created. At the end of the 19th century, the Grand basset griffon vendéen, combining rusticity and a shortened leg, had evolved as part of the basset breeds of France.

    Working more on producing the exact size and proportions needed to hunt different game animals, the Vendeen Griffon Club, founded in 1907, recognized two varieties of Basset Griffon Vendéen, the Grand basset griffon vendéen and the Petit Basset Griffon Vendéen.

    In the decade of 1950, the Grand basset griffon vendéen was separated on its own standard and considered a separate breed, although the miscegenation between basset vendeano “Grand” and the “Petit” not banned until 1977.

    The first selections were made in the late 19th century by the Earl of Elva, who was looking for straight-legged dogs, but it was Paul Dezamy who established the type. He had understood that to catch a hare on the move, dogs of a certain size were needed, that he fixed on some 43 centimeters.

    Today it is used for rifle hunting and can hunt all furry animals, from the hare to the wild boar. A herd of Grand basset griffon vendéen won the 5th European Hare Championship.

    Westphalian Dachsbracke
    Germany FCI 100 . Small-sized Hounds

    Westphalian Dachsbracke

    The Westphalian Dachsbracke It is mainly a hunting dog that maintains an active temperament and a great need for exercise.

    Content

    History

    The Westphalian Badger Dog was developed in the 17th century in Germany, in the region between the Rhine and the Weser. The result of the cross between the German Hound and various types of Dachsbrack, was created to satisfy the need for a fast dog, small and short, able to cut through bushes and chase prey into burrows. They were the favorite companions of the Germanic nobles, who were so appreciated for their ability to hunt hares, rabbits and foxes as per their friendly disposition.

    It is mentioned in the official description of the German Hound in the decade of 1880, and a first standard was established in 1910. However, the breed was not recognized by the German Kennel Club until 1935, and then by the FCI in 1954.

    The Westphalian Dachsbracke It, However, rare outside Germany. It also, among the main canine organizations in the Anglo-Saxon world, only the UKC recognizes this breed, and only from 2006.

    Photo: Westphalian Dachsbracke by Volbu1, CC BY-SA 3.0, via Wikimedia Commons

    Physical characteristics

    The Westphalian Dachsbracke It is a small hound that measures between 30 and 38 cm at the withers and weighing about 15 kg. It seems to the German Hound, which is even considered a miniature version.

    His coat is tricolor, combining black, red and white. White markings are found on the neck, the chest, the snout, paws and tail tip. Bi-color is not accepted. The coat is rough and very tight, medium length in the back, neck and back of the tail, but short in the rest of the body.

    With a slightly elongated skull and a slightly accentuated stop, his head clearly evokes his kinship with the other double basses. His eyes are dark, while his ears, big and long, are flat against the head.

    The tail, strong and tall at the base, is in perfect extension of the line of the back. It is carried out with a saber blade or hanging.

    Character and skills

    The Westphalian Dachsbracke he's a smart working dog, stubborn and tenacious who can follow the trail of prey over great distances without hesitation.

    They are primarily hunting dogs that maintain an active temperament and a great need for exercise. This need must be met each day to prevent the dog's destructive behavior.. Live in an apartment, although it is not recommended, it is possible as long as the dog can take long walks at least twice a day. During these walks, it is strongly recommended to keep it on a leash, in case you smell prey that takes you off the beaten track. However, ideally it would have access to a garden.

    In the home, although he is not the most docile of dogs, the Westphalian Dachsbracke shows a lot of attachment and affection for his master, family loyalty, and gets along very well with children. All these are qualities that make it a very pleasant companion dog.. However, requires a lot of interaction and availability, as he needs constant company and cannot be left alone for a whole day. Playtime and obedience or agility training can keep you busy, but nothing will make you happier than a hunting trip.

    Finally, the Westphalian Dachsbracke tolerate other pets as long as they are exposed to your presence from a young age. Otherwise, his hunting instincts take over, and is capable of chasing and hurting them.

    Education

    Due to its firm character, the Westphalian Dachsbracke can be tough and stubborn in his upbringing. Some commands will take longer to assimilate than with other dog breeds. Therefore, the master must act as the leader of the pack to be heard and obeyed, and under no circumstances allow him to take over the family hierarchy. Therefore, it is clearly important not to be fooled by the small size of this dog and to turn it into a “Princess”, at the risk of experiencing real cohabitation problems in the near future.

    At the end, the Westphalian Dachsbracke must be trained early and firmly, while promoting the principles of positive dog training.

    Health

    The Westphalian Dachsbracke he is a robust dog, healthy and with a good life expectancy. However, their kinship to the Basset family explains why they are prone to back problems, ranging from muscle tension to degenerative disc disease.

    It also, you have to be careful with his long and floppy ears, as they are sensitive to ear infections. In case of infection, the dog tends to shake its head and scratch its ear. Other signs are a bad smell and the development of redness around the ear canal.. An ear infection requires a visit to the vet and is treated with prescription medications..

    Last, like any working dog, a Westphalian Dachsbracke that participates in hunting is more likely to be injured than a companion dog that is kept at home. However, in the heat of the moment, the dog tends to ignore pain, so it is often only after the owner notices lacerations or bites, for example.

    Grooming

    One to two weekly brushings are recommended to maintain the very tight and rough-textured coat of the Westphalian Dachsbracke. These dogs should rarely be bathed, since they deprive the coat of its natural oils.

    The ears should also be visually inspected at least once a week and they should be dried after soaking in water to limit the risk of infection..

    Last, the dog's teeth should be brushed regularly to reduce the risk of periodontal diseases and infections, that one day may require dental extractions.

    The first written traces of the German Hound date from the 18th century. Los criadores alemanes querían crear un perro de caza versátil, pero es muy difícil definir con precisión la ascendencia de la raza. However, the German Hound was originally a descendant of Beagle, English Pointer and English Foxhound. Other breeds like greyhounds, the hounds, the “Westphalian Dachsbracke“, the “Holzbracke de Sauerland tricolor” (pequeño sabueso para la cacería en el bosque) and “Steinbracken” locals may have contributed to the breed.

    Multipurpose hunting and hounds were booming in Germany at the time, after the dismantling of large hunting grounds and the abandonment of traditional hound hunting methods in favor of stalking and stalking.

    Over the years, the German Hound ha llegado a ser conocido por un gran número de variantes regionales con diferentes nombres. The Deutscher Bracken Club was founded in Olpe (North Rhine-Westphalia) in 1896 y abarcaba todas las variedades del noroeste del país. In 1900, were finally grouped into a single race called “Deutsche Bracke” (German Hound).

    However, was not up 1964 that was recognized by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI). The standard currently in force dates from 1987.

    Character and skills

    The German Hound es un perro de tamaño medio que emana una gran alegría de vivir. Attached and endowed with a stable character, is happy when put to work and has plenty of outdoor space. Poder vivir en completa libertad en un gran jardín vallado es esencial si su amo está regularmente fuera, since he likes to live outdoors and exercise. In fact, necesita desahogarse al menos dos horas al día para estar equilibrado. Si no permite que su compañero use su energía, the master has every chance of ending up with a stressed dog, overexcited, aggressive or even destructive.

    German Hound

    It also, even if you have enough opportunities to exercise, the risk of the dog escaping is high with the German Hound, who especially appreciates sneaking out of his house as soon as he gets the chance, whether to explore new environments or follow tempting smells.

    The German Hound not at all a suitable breed of dog for apartment living. Y a menos que tengas un jardín muy grande – and even then… – it is also not a suitable breed of dog for an elderly or sedentary person.

The German Hound it is above all a tough tracking dog that needs to work hard and work hard. They excel in the pursuit of uninjured game and in the pursuit of wounded prey.

However, should not be left alone with young children, ya que su abrumadora energía podría empujarlos sin querer, knock them down or knock them unconscious.

    Although the German Hound is generally friendly and balanced, meeting other dogs can be a problem in some cases. Although the German Hound se ha acostumbrado durante mucho tiempo a vivir con otros perros debido a su largo uso en la caza en jauría, algunos perros todavía tienden a ser dominantes, especially when it comes to unfamiliar animals. For this reason, any outing synonymous with a possible dog encounter involves keeping your partner on a leash.

    Regarding cohabitation with other pets, especially a cat, también puede ser difícil. In fact, unless you got used to it too soon, that is to say, created together, tends to regard other animals as potential prey. In other words, not really a recommended dog breed with a cat…

    Finally, the German Hound is a noisy dog ​​whose voice extends far. Esta es una característica común a todos los perros de caza, since they must communicate with their master at a distance.

    History

    The origins of the Beagle they are confused and remote. In the year 350 to. C. Xenophon ya describía a unos sabuesos que coinciden en la mayoría de detalles con el beagle.

    Según se cree fueron los romanos quienes los llevaron a Inglaterra como cazadores de conejos y una vez allí fueron cruzados con sabuesos del lugar.

    Talbot Houndson are considered the ancestors of the North Country Beagle, Southern Hound, the Beagle, and the Foxhound.

    Entre el 1300 and the 1400 the Beagle reached a high level of popularity among British monarchs. Eduardo II y Enrique VII ya tenían jaurías de Glove Beagles, llamados así por su reducido tamaño, cabían en un guante e Isabel I tenía Beagles que solamente medían 22 centimeters. Las jaurías de sabuesos eran populares en casi todas las grandes propiedades campestres. Towards the 1400, los Beagles ya se habían extendido por Gran Bretaña, Italy, Grecia y Francia aumentando así su popularidad (Snoopy is a Beagle).

    El nombre que recibe la raza tiene dos posibles orígenes. On the one hand is considered a derivation from the Celtic word “Beag” that means small, While on the other hand holds that it comes from the French word “begueule” meaning open mouth, Perhaps in reference to the noisy outcry produced in the cacario tract.

    Physical characteristics


    They are dogs with muscular legs aspect, and smooth, short coat. Despite having a muscular and slender appearance they tend to clog up is, his appetite is almost insatiable. Why there is that much attention to their diet and not be allowed to abuse this.

    They have long ears. Its colors are usually black, Brown and white of any variety. There are many copies of white legs, Brown ears and Brown and black body. Otra característica de la raza en su coloración es el negro intenso alrededor de sus ojos. Posee una altura mínima deseable a la cruz de 33 cm., and a desirable maximum height to the cross of 40 cm.. Weighs between 9 and 16 kg.

    Character and skills

    The Beagle is always alert. Very hardworking, con gran energía y determinación, they are lively dogs, intelligent and uniform temperament: they do not show aggressiveness or shyness.

    Closeness to their owners

    The Beagle posee casi todas las cualidades del perro de compañía ideal, being meek, loving and friendly, forming strong ties with its people. They are very receptive to their emotions, whatever your age: comparten su alegría en los momentos felices y se solidarizan y apoyan en los momentos difíciles. He is considered an excellent therapist for psychologically debilitated people, especially since the fact that he is generally active does not prevent him from also enjoying calm when it is necessary.

    He is also very cheerful and playful, and he loves to have fun. Thus, he especially likes people who are willing to play with him, especially the children.

    However, It is important to note that he can be very agitated when playing and, for example, will bite the person you are interacting with. This is never a sign of bad behavior., but simply his way of playing. However, these behaviors can be limited by working on them as part of your education.

    Videos "Beagle"

    Ability to handle loneliness

    Being a gregarious dog, the Beagle prefiere la compañía a la soledad y necesita mucha interacción social durante el día. They tend to suffer from separation anxiety when their owner is away and are left alone for any length of time, even in a familiar space.

    Therefore, no es adecuado para alguien que pase la mayor parte de sus días fuera de casa y no pueda llevarlo consigo.

    Relationship with children

    The Beagle he is a dog that adores children, in which he finds great playmates, and vice versa.

    Their tendency to bite people they play with can be problematic with younger children, so keep a close eye on their interactions, although this is valid for any race.

    It should also be noted that sometimes they seek peace and quiet, and they can react badly if they are annoyed with a little insistence. Therefore, it is important for everyone's well-being to teach children to respect their pet and understand their body language, as soon as your age allows.

    Get along with strangers

    The beagles they are very sociable and are usually delighted to meet new people, whether they are invited to the house by their owners or if they meet them on a walk, for example. He is not the type to be aggressive towards strangers, rather they take an interest in them and potentially expect them to play with them or even offer them food.

    Protection instinct

    Due to its jovial and open character, the Beagle not one of those who discourages strangers from approaching: you are more likely to approach them to meet them. They may raise their voices in such circumstances, but it is more to express his curiosity than to defend his master or his home.

    In other words, although I am always alert, has no real protective instinct, and cannot be used as a guard.

    Obedience

    Like many breeds of hunting dogs, the Beagle is used to a certain independence of mind, ya que debe ser capaz de tomar ciertas decisiones por sí mismo. In daily life, this means that it is far from being a model of obedience, and can even be quite stubborn.

    This means you can give a teacher a hard time who doesn't know how to deal with this., especially due to lack of experience. Therefore, a first-time adopter is better off with another breed.

    Need for exercise

    The Beagle needs to spend a lot of time outdoors, and you can only be comfortable if you do at least 1,5 horas de ejercicio al día.

    In other words, not a breed at all suitable for a master who is often absent, sedentario y/o físicamente débil.

    Working capacity

    The Beagle was born for hunting and, in general, for all activities that require a very fine sense of smell. They are very persistent in fulfilling their mission: they are not only lively and intelligent, but also bold, con tanta determinación como energía.

    Risk of leakage

    The Beagle it is a hunting dog par excellence. Esto significa que su nariz le guía durante toda su vida, and nothing makes you happier than smelling and following a new or interesting scent. Esto significa que el riesgo de fuga es alto y que el jardín debe estar vallado.

    Of course, this is also a problem when walking and doing other outdoor activities. Therefore, learning to remember is absolutely crucial in order to consider letting him roam free, although this does not necessarily exempt you from being equipped with a collar with connected GPS to know where you are at all times if, Nonetheless, goes out to the street. Having said that, many owners simply choose to wear the strap consistently.

    Noise level

    The Beagle it is a very vocal breed of dog: he likes to express himself through his voice and howl loudly. His barks are a true language, y varían en función de lo que intentan comunicar y de su nivel emocional.

    There are many reasons why it can bark: curiosity or desire to warn when you hear an external noise, afraid, boredom, búsqueda de atención, greeting, separation anxiety…

    In any case, it is certainly not the best option for a person who values ​​silence – or whose neighbors value it.

    Adaptation to change

    The Beagle adapts very well to changes, including lifestyle and / or environmental changes, for example after a move. As long as you stay with your teacher, su principal punto de referencia está ahí.

    Get along with other dogs

    The Beagle is usually very friendly with other dogs, either sharing a house with another dog or meeting potential new playmates on walks and other activities. Of course, its use as a bulldog is no stranger to this.

    Living under the same roof as one of your roommates can also be a great way to keep you from feeling abandoned when your owners are away..

    Get along with cats

    The beagles they are very attached to all members of their family. For him, a cat living in the same house is a full member of your family, especially if you are used to being with him from his earliest age. Otherwise, you have to be careful at the beginning of the coexistence and go little by little, but then it has every chance of being harmonious. This is all the more true since the presence of the little feline helps him feel less alone when his masters are absent..

    As for the cats that you may encounter in the course of your wanderings, you better stay vigilant. In fact, your hunting instinct can take over and lead you to chase them.

    Coexistence with other species

    Even a Beagle who is simply a domestic companion is still basically a hunter. If a small animal is found or smells (rodent, bird, etc.) On an excursion, it is very likely that I will go after him and do something to him.

    Things are normally very different in the case of an animal that shares your home and that is used to seeing from its first months. She considers him a member of her family and has no reason to attack him. However, there is no zero risk…

    Observations

    They generally have a way to sit very peculiar, without support in the legs, but rather on the thighs and buttocks, leaving the hind limbs extended completely in the ground.

    education

    Ease of training

    The Beagle it is certainly not one of the easiest breeds to train. They are usually quite stubborn or forgetful, so your training will probably require a good dose of patience and / or creativity.

    Therefore, not recommended for a newbie, que pronto se vería abrumado por su propensión a ser indiferente a las órdenes o a interesarse por otras cosas.

    On the other hand, once you know how to get their attention, it is possible to teach him everything and control his actions. In particular, be able to hear and execute commands even when there is a lot of noise and distractions around. In other words, for an experienced person who knows how to do it (although sometimes you have to call in the help of a professional dog trainer), patience and perseverance pay off. Given its qualities, Worth the effort.

    Training method

    Being a very intelligent dog, the Beagle makes the connection between orders and actions fairly quickly.

    However, this does not mean that he does what he is told. It may happen that you do not see the meaning of what is being asked of you, but it is not the most frequent: la mayoría de las veces está deseoso de complacer a su amo… as long as your mind is not occupied by something else. Aquí es donde radica el problema: in particular, your sense of smell can quickly become a distraction, especially since he is curious and has a highly developed hunting instinct. This can make training - and subsequent obedience - a bit difficult..

    The correct method of training a Beagle, the one who is the key to success, it is therefore to work the concentration, and more specifically the concentration on the orders of his master. Therefore, don't skimp on positive reinforcement, that is to say, in rewards (candies, petting, stimuli, etc.) when you react to being called by name, looks at his master while waiting for instructions and, of course, follow them.

    Socialization

    Like all dogs, the Beagle needs early socialization. From the first months of life, the puppy needs to be used to meeting all kinds of people, other dogs and other species, and be exposed to all kinds of experiences, smells and sounds. This stage of your life is very important for your cognitive and mental development, so that you are well balanced for the rest of your life.

    If you adopt a dog from a breeder, usually they will have already done a lot of work in this area, especially if they only release it to 3 months of age, ya que el período entre los 2 and 3 months is the most crucial. However, it is still necessary to continue in the weeks and months following the adoption.

    Learn the rules

    Every dog ​​needs clear rules to find its place in the home. Estas reglas son aún más esenciales para el éxito de la convivencia en el caso del Beagle, who usually does what he wants.

    They are easily assimilated, since they remain the same in time and space, así como de una persona a otra. Therefore, even before you arrive home, all family members must agree on what will and will not be allowed, and then stick to it. For example, no se puede permitir que una persona haga lo que otra prohíbe, or tolerate certain puppy behaviors that will later be reprimanded as an adult.

    This definition work may also require a small educational effort with children., so they understand that the rules they are asked to abide by are not made to annoy the animal, sino para permitirle vivir en armonía entre su familia.

    The first thing to learn

    Unless you want to keep your dog on a leash for the rest of his life, enseñarle a recordar debería ser una prioridad para cualquier propietario de un Beagle, given their propensity to follow smells and, Therefore, to take flight. If security conditions allow it, the ideal is to leave your Beagle roam unhindered from a young age, so that he gets used to not being hooked while he is around his owner. In any case, as long as the memory is not perfectly integrated, it is important to reward him every time he returns after being called.

    It is also important to control their tendency to chew from a very young age, to do so in objects intended for this purpose, and not in the hands of his master or in the furniture of the house, for example. If the dog is not stopped immediately when he begins to bite the person he is playing with, for example, diciéndole un¡No!” firm, stopping the game session and ignoring it, existe un gran riesgo de que vuelva a ocurrir un día de adulto. The bite of a Beagle adult is, Obviously, much less fun and much more dangerous than a small puppy bite. However, chewing is still inevitable, ya que así alivia el dolor de las encías. Lo único que hay que hacer es proporcionarle juguetes para morder, and make sure you limit this behavior to these objects.

    Health

    Life expectancy

    Of 12 to 15 years

    The Beagle it is usually quite robust and has a life expectancy higher than the average of other dog breeds.

    Resistance to cold and heat

    The short coat of the Beagle makes me not fear the heat. On the other hand, mientras el frío no sea extremo, the density of its fur allows it to support it perfectly.

    Like this, is capable of living in almost any climate.

    Diseases

    The general good health of the Beagle does not prevent you from being especially prone to certain diseases, like any other race. They are as follows:

    • The Hip Dysplasia, a malformation of the neck of the femur whose appearance may be favored by a hereditary factor. The fact that the bone does not fit perfectly in the hip joint causes pain and lameness, así como la aparición de artrosis a medida que el animal envejece;
    • Enanism, que hace que el perro sea más pequeño de lo normal y puede ir acompañado o no de otras anomalías físicas, like extremely short legs;
    • Síndrome chino, también conocido como síndrome de Musladin-Lueke: los individuos con este síndrome crecen con normalidad, but they have a big skull and slanted eyes. It also, suelen tener problemas cardíacos y anomalías en los dedos de los pies;
    • The Hypothyroidism, a thyroid disorder that causes an alteration of the animal's metabolism, with potentially numerous consequences: loss of hair, Obesity, skin disorders, shortness of breath, great fatigue, etc. The disease cannot be cured in the strict sense, pero existen tratamientos que permiten reducir en gran medida los síntomas;
    • Selective immunoglobulin A deficiency (Ig A), que afecta a las proteínas que defienden al organismo contra los agentes infecciosos. It can have various consequences: skin infections, respiratory and digestive, e incluso infecciones de oído y del tracto urinario. Aunque todavía no se ha establecido con certeza, this deficiency appears to be inherited, therefore, reproduction of affected subjects is not recommended;
    • The epilepsy, a neurological condition that is mostly hereditary, but that can also occur without affecting family members (near or far). It causes seizures that can be very impressive, pero el tratamiento de por vida puede reducir su número o intensidad. As a result, la mayoría de los individuos afectados son capaces de llevar una vida casi normal;
    • The atopic dermatitis, una enfermedad crónica y hereditaria en la que la piel del perro no actúa como barrera protectora. This predisposes you to developing various allergies;
    • Demodecia, enfermedad causada por un parásito que se caracteriza por la caída local o extensa del cabello, redness and itching, etc. It occurs most often in puppies between 3 and 12 months of age, due to their weak immune system;
    • Ear infections (otitis, etc.), as its large, flexible ears quickly trap air and provide an environment for moisture and dirt to collect.

    The “Beagle” también es propenso a varias afecciones oculares:

    • Nictitating gland prolapse, u “Eye Cherry”, which makes the gland under the third eyelid look like a cherry in the corner of the eye. An operation is often required to remove it. Dado que la técnica quirúrgica utilizada es mínimamente invasiva, the prognosis is good and relapses are very rare;
    • The glaucoma, which is abnormally high pressure in the eye, with very fast irreversible damage and even blindness, unless treated very quickly. This disease usually has a hereditary origin;
    • Progressive retinal atrophy of the APR-CSNB type, a degenerative eye disorder that causes impaired night vision. This disease is hereditary and incurable.

    Risk of obesity

    Although they are usually quite active, Beagles are prone to obesity due to their greed, especially if you have been neutered. This can lead to many health problems or aggravate existing diseases.. It also, representa un verdadero círculo virtuoso: as in humans, the more weight an individual gains, less active is, and therefore… more fat.

    Therefore, evitar que su perro sea obeso debería ser una prioridad para cualquier propietario que desee mantenerlo en buen estado de salud. As such, in addition to monitoring your diet, it is necessary to weigh it once a month (or even more), to quickly notice any deviation.

    If confirmed in the next measurement, no waiting to take him to the vet, as the problem is unlikely to resolve spontaneously, quite the contrary. In fact, only a healthcare professional can identify the cause of this weight gain (improper diet, excessive amounts distributed, disease, reaction to a treatment, etc.) and, Therefore, indicate how to remedy it.

    Causes of mortality

    The fact that the Beagle is generally in good health is illustrated by a study conducted in 2004 by the Kennel Club and the British Small Animal Veterinary Association: a third of observed deaths are related to cancer, and old age is the second leading cause of death, with a 16% of the cases. Los problemas cardíacos completan el podio, with a 12%.

    Healthy adoption

    Although the Beagle usually leads a healthy life, many of the diseases the breed is prone to are or may be inherited. Therefore, it is important to adopt from a serious breeder: esto ofrece la mejor garantía de obtener un cachorro que no sólo ha sido bien socializado desde sus primeras semanas de vida, sino que también está sano y se mantiene así.

    In effect, a professional worthy of the name is not content with taking the best possible care of puppies during their first weeks of life, before handing them over: systematically puts dogs you plan to breed through various tests, in order to avoid any possible transmission of a hereditary defect. Therefore, if the breeder is unable to present the results of these tests carried out to the parents or the puppy, it is better to pass.

    The breeder must also be able to provide a certificate of good health from a veterinarian, así como detalles de las vacunas recibidas por el cachorro (registered in your health or vaccination book).

    Brittleness during growth

    The Beagle finishes growing among the 12 and 15 months of age, and is especially fragile during this period, sobre todo cuando aún no tiene 6 months.

    Como sus huesos y músculos aún se están desarrollando, do not exercise it for too long or with too much intensity or, for example, make you walk up and down steps: no sólo correría el riesgo de sufrir lesiones a corto plazo, but also long-term problems (deformities, aftermath, etc.) que podrían incapacitarlo de por vida.

    Maintain good health

    Adoptar un perro que presente las mejores garantías en cuanto a salud y cuidarlo durante los primeros meses si es un cachorro no exime, of course, of worrying about your health after.

    Prevention is also essential: take you periodically (At least once a year, and more when he gets older) to a complete health check at the vet, although in appearance everything is fine, it is essential to detect any possible problems early and, in your case, treat it in the best conditions. También es una oportunidad para asegurarse de que está al día con sus vacunas, getting the necessary booster shots.

    It also, its owner must ensure that it renews its antiparasitic treatments throughout the year, whenever necessary, so you never stop being protected. Obviously, esto es aún más crítico si pasa muchas horas al aire libre, for example, when hunting.

    Grooming

    The Beagle is, in general, a low maintenance breed.

    coat care

    Ideally, brush when Beagle once a week to detangle the fur, eliminate dead hair and promote regrowth. As it is a breed of short-haired dog, this is not complicated or time consuming.

    However, it is important to remember that your skin is quite fragile, así que aprovecha la sesión de cepillado para comprobar si hay llagas o sarpullidos, or even signs of infection: redness, tenderness or inflammation of the skin, nose, the eyes, the legs, etc.

    On the other hand, their fur tends to thicken in winter, and molts a lot in spring. Es necesario optar por una mayor frecuencia de cepillado durante los períodos de muda, that is to say, several times a week.

    Bathrooms

    The coat of the Beagle usually stay clean, so you don't need a frequent bath, unless, of course, got especially dirty. In any case, should not be done more than once a month, as it will damage the skin, which is more fragile than the average.

    También es importante utilizar siempre un champú especialmente diseñado para perros.

    Cuidado de los oídos

    Como todos los perros con orejas caídas, the Beagle needs special care in this area. In effect, as the air does not circulate very well in them due to this morphological peculiarity, the risk of infections increases.

    Thus, it is important to inspect and clean them at least once a week to avoid accumulation of dirt or moisture. También hay que tomarse el tiempo de secarlas después de que hayan estado en el agua o en un ambiente húmedo durante mucho tiempo. They should also be checked immediately if they shake their heads more than usual or scratch their ears.. In case of doubt or if they are especially dirty, do not hesitate to consult a veterinarian.

    Eye care

    As with any dog, the Beagle's eyes should be checked weekly and cleaned if necessary. This reduces the risk of infections and helps detect any illness as early as possible., especially since this breed has a higher than average risk of glaucoma.

    Teeth care

    During the weekly maintenance session of the Beagle, teeth should be brushed with a dog brush or finger bowl to prevent tartar build-up caused by plaque. Plaque can cause not only bad breath, but also and above all diseases with sometimes serious consequences.

    If possible, se debe realizar una limpieza aún más frecuente, since the ideal is a daily cleaning. In any case, it is necessary to use a toothpaste specially designed for dogs.

    Nail care

    Once he Beagle is sufficiently exercised, natural wear and tear makes it unnecessary to cut your nails manually. However, si no es así y las uñas se vuelven demasiado largas, deben recortarse con un cortaúñas canino especial, Since, otherwise, can interfere with normal walking, breaking and / or injuring the dog.

    Checking once a month is a good habit to acquire, así como escuchar de vez en cuando: if you hear a kind of clicking noise when walking on hard ground, means its claws are grazing on it. This is the sign that it's time to cut them out.

    Maintenance when you get home

    Whether it is a Beagle as of another race, when a dog has just spent long hours outdoors, It is a good idea to get into the habit of inspecting its fur and paws when you get home., looking for parasites, púas, scratches, cuts or other injuries.

    Esto es especialmente útil para un perro que se utiliza para la caza, since this activity supposes a greater exposure to these dangers.

    Introduction to hairdressing

    Grooming the coat, the eyes, the ears, the teeth and claws of the Beagle should not be done randomly: every owner should know how to do it, as otherwise it may injure or even harm the dog. Therefore, la primera vez puede ser útil pedir a un veterinario o a un peluquero que le enseñe cómo hacerlo.

    It is also very important to accustom the dog to all these manipulations from a very young age., when it is most malleable, so that they seem normal and do not rebel. Maintenance sessions will be calmer and more enjoyable for everyone.

    Food

    Recommended foods

    When feeding a Beagle, it is better to give preference to croquettes that contain a large amount of meat, ya que son más ricas en proteínas. Due to its high level of exercise, necesita más proteínas que muchos otros perros.

    Unless you have a great experience on the subject, se debe evitar la comidacasera”, ya que es difícil encontrar el equilibrio perfecto, especially since it is easy for you to become overweight if your diet is poorly calibrated, and the necessary proportions of each nutrient in your diet can change over time.

    This is the case, above all, if the dog is used to hunting and, therefore, spend more than usual during certain periods. In this case, you have to increase the amount of food from time to time to meet their greatest needs, but you also have to check the contents of its bowl to match the recommended diet for a hunting dog. For example, es importante que reciba altas cantidades de grasas y proteínas de buena calidad y fácil digestión. Once the hunting season is over, It is important, of course, go back to regular servings to avoid weight gain.

    Puppies feeding

    Be it a Beagle or a representative of another race, a puppy's diet influences not only the present, but also in the future. It is the “combustibleque permite a su cuerpo crecer y formarse adecuadamente. An individual who does not eat properly (both quantitatively and qualitatively) during this crucial period you are at risk of stunting, that can affect the rest of your life. On the other hand, if the food given to the baby is too good, it is likely to grow too fast: this can cause injury, joint problems, deformities, etc., with possible consequences for life.

    Therefore, do not hesitate to seek the experience of a veterinarian to act in the best possible way, sobre todo porque sus necesidades nutricionales cambian constantemente a lo largo de su período de crecimiento.

    Meal frequency

    Dividing the daily ration into at least two meals and feeding them at a fixed time is one of the best habits to adopt when feeding your Beagle.

    This is because the Beagle sabe que puede contar con una segunda comida más tarde en el día y, therefore, less likely to ask for it. It also builds trust in the owner, as the dog can see that he can be trusted to meet his food needs.

    Avoid obesity

    The beagles they are very gluttonous and, therefore, presentan un riesgo real de obesidad si comen más de lo que deberían en su nivel de actividad.

    Aided by its developed sense of smell, does not hesitate to look for food throughout the house, starting with the garbage. And when he finds food, rara vez se detiene antes de la última miga. For this reason, asegúrate de que no pueda rebuscar en la basura y pon su comida y sus golosinas en un lugar seguro e inaccesible y/o en un recipiente difícil de abrir, like a box. Better to avoid bags and covers, that can easily break.

    As for the treats, it is better not to abuse them, although they are a great ally to achieve their goals in their education. In any case, It is recommended to opt for low-fat products and get into the habit of deducting the caloric intake they represent from your daily ration..

    Her propensity to be overweight also means you don't have to give in to her imploring gaze when ordering food at the table., nor give him the leftovers: apart from the fact that certain dishes highly appreciated by humans are toxic to their companions, there is little chance that they will meet your nutritional needs.

    Hydration

    Like any dog, the Beagle must have fresh water available at all times.

    This is especially important when the dog is under great stress., for example, during the hunt. It is wise to carry enough water for him and offer him a drink regularly, otherwise it may resort to puddles, ponds and other potentially unhealthy water sources.

    For sale "Beagle"

    In any case, the amount of money needed to adopt a Beagle depends essentially on the prestige of the kennel, de la calidad de la línea de la que procede el animal, pero también y sobre todo de sus propias características, in particular its physical characteristics, that is to say, of its proximity to the breed standard and of its possible predispositions to hunting.

    In Europe

    The price of a puppy Beagle it can vary a lot, from something less than 500 euros up to almost 1.500 EUR.

    However, la mayoría de las veces ronda los 1.000 EUR, without significant differences between males and females. You can expect to pay around 1200 euros por un individuo cuyas cualidades lo predestinen para las exposiciones o la cría.

The four varieties were white (du role), Fawn of the (Bretagne), grey (St Louis du) and the black. All of today's varieties of French hunting dogs seem to have their origin in repeated crossbreeding and mutations of these four types..

The only representative of the Great “Grand Fauve de Bretagne”, is the Fawn Brittany Griffon (48 – 56 cm.), very popular in France.

    There is considerable doubt about how the reduction of the overall size of the race was reduced to half. One theory suggests that it was initiated by selection of smaller litter size specimens., another for the breeding of the smallest specimens for countless generations. In the 19th century there were numerous litters made up entirely of Basset Fauve de Bretagne.

    In the Decade of 1970, as the Basset Fauve de Bretagne It became popular, French hunters decided to introduce new lines. It is generally believed that the Petit Basset Griffon Vendéen was used to improve their ability to, possibly, hunting and the Sausage dog to preserve the color of your hair.
