History

The history of Estonian Hound (or Eesti Hagijas in the language of your country of origin) begins at the beginning of the 20th century in Estonia, when the crossing of english hounds, Poles and Finns used by local hunters gave rise to a large dog unofficially considered regional and ancestor of the current Eesti Hagijas.

Given the sharp decline in the population of large game and in order to reestablish it, in 1937 A law was passed prohibiting hunting with dogs over 45 cm to the cross, which in fact caused a change of orientation towards smaller animals, like foxes and hares. Therefore, Estonian hunters and breeders had to breed smaller dogs than they had then, so they were introduced in the breeding program the Beagles, the Dachshund and Swiss Hounds.

This law was amended three years later, in 1940: the maximum size was increased to 55 cm., and breeders stopped their efforts to miniaturize local hunting dogs.

In 1947, when Estonia was part of the USSR, the Soviet Ministry of Agriculture decided that all “republics” that made up Estonia had to have a local breed of dog. The Estonian hunting dog population was then estimated at around 900, and intense selection helped stabilize the characteristics of the breed that would become the Estonian Hound.

In 1954, the Ministry of Agriculture sent a specialized commission to Estonia to study the 648 specimens submitted by local breeders, and were clearly convinced: the first breed standard was approved by the Ministry a few months later. This year marked the official introduction of the Estonian Hound like a race, whose stamina and formidable nose were immediately emphasized.

After the collapse of the Soviet regime, Estonia gained independence and in 1998 la Estonian Kennel Club, the main canine association in the country, recognized race. Being the only native of the country, it was not surprising that it was granted national dog status.

The organization set out to make the breed known and recognized internationally. His efforts were crowned with success in 2019, cuando the International Cynological Federation (FCI) provisionally accepted the breed and published a standard. Having said that, there is still a long way to go, since it is not recognized, for example, by the prestigious British Kennel Club, nor by American reference organizations such as the United Kennel Club (UKC) o el American Kennel Club (AKC).

The Estonian Hound is popular in an area encompassing Estonia and nearby Russian regions, and its population is estimated at about 1200 individuals. It is still used there as a hunting dog and has also made a place for itself in many homes as a pet.. However, hasn't conquered the rest of the world yet. Rare in europe, even in Estonia's neighboring countries, is practically absent from the North American continent.

Physical characteristics

Estonian-hound
Estonian Hound

The Estonian Hound They are medium-sized hunting dogs that can easily be mistaken for the Beagle, one of the races that helped create them. However, they are bigger than the Beagle and they have a more pointed snout.

His powerful and muscular body is very long. Its solid bone legs are straight and almost half the size at the withers.. Saber-shaped tail flicks when in motion and remains fairly low, no higher than back level.

The head is quite wide at the level of the skull and the long muzzle ends in a very black nose. His slightly oblique eyes are more or less dark brown, while her long, thin ears fall along her cheeks.

The coat of the Estonian Hound is short, rough and shiny, with a moderately dense undercoat. Their fur is usually tricolor, with black spots with more or less wide red edges on a white background. However, the standard accepts bicolor individuals with completely red spots, without any trace of black. In all cases, the tips of the legs and tail should be white, as well as the throat and chest.

Sexual dimorphism is marked, the female being slightly longer than the male, which is taller in the legs and wider.

Physical characteristics

The Estonian Hound he is particularly devoted to his family, who likes to spend time with. They are a breed of dog especially recommended for children: they love to interact with them and are very patient with them, they even accept having their tails or ears pulled. However, you should remember that interactions between a young child and a dog of any breed must be under the supervision of an adult.

This strong attachment to his family makes him not like loneliness, which can lead to separation anxiety. If you are often left home alone for long periods of time, not surprisingly you may experience destructive behavior.

One solution for a caregiver who is regularly absent during the day may be to provide a playmate. Made to hunt in a pack, the Estonian Hound they enjoy the company of other dogs. If they are used to its presence from an early age, They can also make friends with any feline in the house. On the other hand, as they have a strong hunting instinct, should not live with rabbits or other rodents.

Rather shy and not fond of novelty, the Estonian Hound they tend to bark at strangers and then observe their master's behavior from a distance. If he invites the newcomer to the house, comes to greet you politely, but stay reserved.

Extremely hardy hunting dogs used to long days in the woods, they need a lot of exercise to expend their great energy: a daily walk of one hour is a minimum for them. It is recommended to always keep it tied during these outings, as your excellent sense of smell often allows you to find an interesting track that you are likely to want to follow for hours, ignoring withdrawal orders. A dog owner who still wants to let him walk freely right now should equip him with a GPS dog collar, so you can easily get your hands back on it if it disappears.

The Estonian Hound you can live in an apartment as long as you are outdoors often enough to satisfy your need for exercise, but he is much happier when he has a garden where he can patrol and play. However, this outdoor space must be well fenced to eliminate the risk of escape if you see potential prey to pursue.

A peculiarity of this dog is its need for routine and its aversion to novelty, which makes their behavior sometimes compared to that of domestic cats. This is not at all an appropriate choice for a master who wants to take their dog on vacation.: he is a poor traveler, you get stressed out when you get in the car and you don't like spending time in a place you don't know at all.

Last, it is a breed of dog that barks often and forcefully. For the peace of the neighborhood, it is necessary to teach him from a young age not to bark for any reason and to shut up when ordered to do so.

Education

Estonian Hound
Estonian Hound

Like all its fellow men, the Estonian Hound must be socialized from an early age. This requires spending as much time with him as possible so that he meets all kinds of people (neighbors, family, friends, strangers…) And animals, but also so that you get used to the situations that you may face later.

This need to become very quickly acquainted with the outside world is all the more pronounced as it is fearful by nature. In particular, to prevent future vet visits from becoming a nightmare to handle, it is recommended to get used to traveling by car as soon as possible.

Addressing the barking issue at an early age is also imperative, so that you understand that it is not necessary to bark for hours at every unfamiliar noise.

It is also important to teach your dog to remember to bark, as you will not hear any more commands once you have sniffed the trail of a game animal and go in pursuit. Hunting instinct is well established in this breed, so it does not require any specific training to be able to follow a trail for hours and be an excellent hunter.

Relatively independent and headstrong, the Estonian Hound require patience to be trained, but they like to please their master and usually end up listening to him. If necessary, be firm to assert your dominant position and show your dog who is the master, traditional training methods should be avoided, at the risk of damaging the relationship of trust. It is preferable to opt for a learning technique based on positive reinforcement.

Health

As the Estonian Hound it is a relatively new breed and not very widespread, there is still no real and in-depth study of their possible health problems. However, looks quite robust, no doubt thanks to a reasoned breeding program that has given priority to the personality and abilities of individuals rather than their appearance.

However, you have probably inherited from Beagle and the Foxhound a certain predisposition to the following diseases:

  • Progressive retinal atrophy, a breakdown of the eye tissue that can eventually lead to blindness;
  • entropion and ectropion, problems with the eyelids that cause itching and / or irritation of the eye, but can be surgically corrected;
  • dislocation of the patella, which affects the kneecap and causes walking difficulties. It can also be responsible for premature arthritis;
  • Elbow or hip dysplasia, that can cause lameness.
  • It also, the Estonian Hound is sensitive to allergies and sinusitis. These ailments are not serious in themselves, but they can cause a certain amount of stress to the dog, as this breed relies heavily on its sense of smell. Therefore, a temporary loss of your sense of smell is likely disorienting you.

    Finally, like most hunting dogs, the Estonian Hound have a ferocious appetite that can lead to overweight or even obesity if they don't get enough exercise.

    Grooming

    Despite her short hair and sparse undercoat, the Estonian Hound require some maintenance. Brushing twice a week is recommended to remove dead hairs and avoid finding them all over the house. This also helps to distribute sebum on the skin to better protect it against infectious agents..

    During moulting periods, in autumn and spring, it is even necessary to opt for a daily frequency, to deal with the large amount of hair you lose during this period.

    On the other hand, it is only necessary to bathe your dog when it is particularly dirty, for example, if he has rolled in the mud.

    Besides keeping your coat, it is recommended to check your teeth once a week to make sure there are no cavities, and cleaning your eyes with a damp cloth to remove any dirt that could cause an infection.

    Weekly ear care is especially important: like any dog ​​with floppy ears, the Estonian Hound have a higher risk of infections and ear infections.

    For sale “Estonian Hound”

    The price of a puppy Estonian Hound is of some 700-800 euros in your country of origin, and there is no price difference between male and female puppies.

    However, hard to find outside of Estonia, but the situation may change rapidly after the breed is recognized by the FCI in 2019.

    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. Imágenes del siglo XVII muestran jaurías de sabuesos “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) que los sabuesos que vivían por separado en una zona restringida de Suiza se desarrollaron por lo tanto por separado.

    In the decade of 1890, parecía que los sabuesos de pura raza estaban marcados para la muerte en Suiza, a pesar de la cría del 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) el perro tenía que estar bajo control cuando buscara caza; c) un perro que desapareciera durante la caza debía regresar a su amo en el plazo de media hora; y d) el perro debía regresar tan pronto como sonara la bocina, 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. Se seleccionaron perros adecuados para la cría y, 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. (Como país neutral, 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, había más sabuesos suizos fuera de Suiza que en su país de origen. In 1993, about 1.000 copies of Lucerne Hound vivían en Suecia.

    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 Räber, they frequently crossed paths with his Italian cousin, the Italian short-haired Segugio.

    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, poco común fuera de Alemania. It also, among the main canine organizations in the Anglo-Saxon world, only the UKC recognizes this breed, and only from 2006.

    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, está en perfecta extensión de la línea de la espalda. 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. Esta necesidad debe ser satisfecha cada día para prevenir el comportamiento destructivo del perro. Live in an apartment, although it is not recommended, es posible siempre y cuando el perro pueda dar largos paseos al menos dos veces al día. 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, lo ideal sería que tuviera acceso a un jardín.

    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. Todas estas son cualidades que lo hacen un perro de compañía muy agradable. However, requires a lot of interaction and availability, ya que necesita compañía constante y no se le puede dejar solo durante todo un día. 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, el maestro debe actuar como líder de la manada para ser escuchado y obedecido, y bajo ninguna circunstancia permitir que se haga cargo de la jerarquía familiar. 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, ya que son sensibles a las infecciones de oído. 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.. Una infección de oído requiere una visita al veterinario y se trata con medicamentos de prescripción.

    Last, like any working dog, a Westphalian Dachsbracke que participa en la caza tiene más probabilidades de resultar herido que un perro de compañía que se mantiene en casa. 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, que un día pueden requerir extracciones dentales.

    German Hound

    The German Hound it is a fairly common dog in its country but very rare outside its borders.

    History

    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.

    Sometimes known as the “Braque d’Olpe” (the city where one of the variants of the breed was found and where the Deutscher Bracken Club), the German Hound still a very popular hunting dog in his native region, and even in the rest of Germany. However, its distribution outside of Germany remains highly confidential.

    That does not prevent it from being recognized by the American Kennel Club (A.K.C.) and the United Kennel Club (U.K.C.) in the United States, así como por el Kennel Club (K.C.) From great britain.

    Physical characteristics

    The German Hound it is a light hunting dog, tall and elegant that, However, it is of solid construction. The head is noble and rather light, con orejas colgantes de tamaño medio y una cola bien llevada pero relativamente gruesa en relación con la línea del cuerpo. The abdomen is slightly folded.

    The teething of the German Hound is particularly strong and regular, with powerful pointed incisors. The eyes, that are moderately large, they are clear and bright. The head, dry and moderately long, and relatively strong neck (compared to the head) follow each other to achieve a slightly arched top.

    The coat is long, very dense and hard, and even covers the belly. It is tricolor: red or fawn, black and white. The saddle and / or coat must be black and well defined. Las marcas blancas características de la raza son una lista continua en el hocico, the neck (a totally white collar is particularly appreciated), chest and limbs. The tip of the tail is also white.

    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. You need an active owner, even sporty, to provide you with the exercise and outings you need.

    Nice to live, puede ser tanto un perro de compañía como de caza, since it is able to adapt to many situations.

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.

    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. Pero esto podría no ser del gusto de los vecinos, que podrían quejarse de los ladridos intempestivos del perro.

The size, tail color and length varied at that time: some dogs were black and tan, others red or yellow. However, white markings were common. Some cubs were born with short tails.

    During the early years of the 20th century, great efforts were made to rebuild the type of the old Smalandsstövare, especially the short-tailed variety. The first standard, written in 1921, permitía a los perros tener tanto la cola corta como la larga. Primero se decidió que el color sería negro y fuego, but red and yellow were allowed, así como las manchas blancas.

    The Smaland Hound recibía continuas infusiones de sangre nueva, a veces utilizando líneas fuertes de otras razas de perros. La sangre nueva se utilizó por última vez en el decenio de 1950, When, durante un breve período, dogs of unknown origin were registered, but accepted type, as Smaland Hound.

    History

    The Schiller Hound It is a working breed that has existed in Sweden since the Middle Ages. However, the breed was not really established and recognized until 1952. This recognition is due in large part to a breeder, Per Schiller, who gave the breed its name.

    In 1886, at the first Swedish dog show, they were shown 189 hounds. Among them were Tamburini and Ralla I, a brother and sister belonging to Per Schiller. Descendían de los famosos sabuesos de la Kaflas estate. These dogs probably came from southern Germany: rather small, fawn in color with black fur and slight white markings.

    The Schiller Hound they were then based on the crossing of Swiss dogs, alemanes y austríacos, así como en los perros de caza británicos, especially the Harriers, to produce a fast and light breed that quickly acquired its type. curiously, Per Schiller worked alongside a Swedish doctor named Adolf Hamilton, and also led to the development of a similar dog named Hamilton Hound, that can be differentiated from Schiller Hound for its tricolor coat.

    Aún muy raro fuera de su país natal, the Schiller Hound was recognized by the Swedish Kennel Club in 1907.

    The Schiller Hound has been traditionally used as a sniffing dog, although some describe it as a hunting dog. The breed is known for both its speed and superior olfactory ability; able to quickly track its prey and then howl loudly when its master approaches, alerting of its position. Es un perro resistente que puede tolerar bien los fríos inviernos suecos. Often, trabajan individualmente en lugar de en una jauría y típicamente cazan conejos y zorros. Even today, many dogs still work as hunters, although they are equally good household pets.
