History

A versatile hunting dog that has been used not only for aiming, but also to throw and recover, the Saint Germain Pointer can work with a variety of hunting, including rabbits and pheasants. Unlike most hunting dogs, traditionally, this breed has been popular at shows and has been bred to have a very uniform and specific appearance.

Originally bred in France mixing English Pointer with the French Pointing Dog - Gascogne type, This breed is believed to have developed in the early 1830 and claims to have a very elegant heritage. King Charles X of France was given two dogs English Pointer who were very talented hunters. The female, call miss, she was raised with a dog Braque Francais local, and the legacy of Saint Germain Pointer started. Initially, the breed was called Compiegne Pointers due to the location of the kennels in which they were raised, but this name was later altered when the kennels were moved to the region of Saint Germain. Many of the dogs produced were shown at dog shows throughout France and, at that time, they were the race of Pointer most shown in its native country.

The race Saint Germain Pointer was initially very popular and in 1913 a club was formed that aimed to increase its prevalence in France, as well as improve the breed. Unfortunately, the size of the breed's population Saint Germain Pointer was greatly reduced in every world war. They have never fully recovered from the drastic decline in population size that occurred in the first half of the 20th century., but they are still a breed that has a loyal follower and are not in danger of extinction today.

In recent years, the English Pointer enter the genetic pool of Saint Germain Pointer to increase their numbers and add some genetic diversity. Even though few, if there is any, of the breed members have been exported internationally, the UKC granted full recognition to the breed in 2006 within your group of hunting dogs.

The appearance of Saint Germain Pointer is particularly important for breeders, although it is mainly a hunting dog. Historically, have participated in a large number of French dog shows. Breed members must be of medium build, with good muscles and heavy bones. The dog's skull should be round and the same length as its muzzle.

Your pink nose should have wide open nostrils, while your big golden eyes should show a placid and relaxed expression. Their ears are curved at the tip and should not reach beyond eye level. The shoulders of the Saint Germain Pointer they are impressively long and their limbs must be robust and heavy. They have a broad chest and a straight back, although your rump will bow slightly.

The males measure between 56 and 62 height cm, while the smaller females reach heights between 53 and 60 cm.. Most members of the breed will weigh between 18 and 27 kg.

Character and skills

While it is true that Saint Germain Pointer has traditionally excelled on the show floor, is primarily a hunting dog and, as such, has the character expected of a working animal. This breed is easy to train and loves to be kept active and given a task to do. They must have a “soft mouth”, meaning they do not hurt or harm the prey they retrieve. They also tend to work in packs, which means that they normally get along with other dogs. Although it is undeniable that they have a natural instinct to chase small animals, anecdotally they get along well with the small pets in their house that they have been introduced to since childhood.

The Saint Germain Pointer he is truly a family dog ​​and does best when kept indoors with human company. He is particularly affectionate with those he trusts and will bond closely with each member of his family.. They are not typically a breed that displays any aggression, which means they are adapted to children, although they would not be good guard dogs.

Exercise

Not far behind when it comes to exercise, the Saint Germain Pointer is a dog that loves to be out of the house. He has great stamina when working and is able to run great distances for long periods of time without appearing to tire.. If kept solely as a pet, owners should be able to provide an hour or two of solid exercise each day and should also keep the dog stimulated with a variety of games and training sessions.

Any attempt to keep this breed in a small apartment or house or to exercise it for less time than recommended, will likely lead to a frustrated dog becoming a difficult pet. Anxiety is likely to develop in these situations, hyperactivity and destructive behaviors.

Health

Unfortunately, there is no specific information on the health of the Saint Germain Pointer, and to date there have been no studies on the breed. A working dog, it is generally accepted as a hardy breed. The prudent owner would be on the lookout for these possible health conditions.:

Hip Dysplasia

    Hip scoring should be performed by responsible breeders to ensure that the small population of the Saint Germain Pointer stay healthy. A simple x-ray of the hips will allow a veterinarian to assess the quality of the hip joints and inform the breeder if they are good enough to allow breeding..

Ear infections

    When the ear canal becomes clogged with a buildup of smelly debris, an infection is likely present. Ears may also be red, hot and sensitive. Affected dogs tend to shake their heads and rub their faces against the ground. Infections occur mainly due to the proliferation of bacteria and yeast, although they can also be due to a foreign body, such as a grass seed inside the ear canal or ear mites.

Grooming

The short coat of the Saint Germain Pointer does not need to be brushed more than once or twice a week. Toenails may need to be trimmed every few months, particularly if you don't walk on hard surfaces. The breed's clear claws make claw clipping easy, since the cut is visible, making it more avoidable than in dogs with dark pigmented claws.

The Most Important Grooming Duty An Owner Should Not Neglect, is maintaining good ear hygiene. Ears should be cleaned every one to two weeks with a dog ear cleaner. Owners should also ensure that the ears are dry inside and out after being exposed to water..

Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla)
Hungría FCI 57 . Braque Type

Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla)

The Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla) They are very affectionate dogs and very attached to their family.

History

The long history of Hungarian Braco (often called Vizsla, as in your home country) is inseparable from that of the Magyar tribes. In effect, the latter were already accompanied by their ancestors when their migrations through the Russian steppes and the Carpathians ended in the ninth century and settled in the Carpathian basin., region corresponding to modern Hungary.

Writings dating from the period of King Adelbert III (1235-1270) they already refer to a “yellowish dog named Vizsla“, used by the Hungarian people for hunting. Illustrations that appear in a 14th century Carmelite book, as well as a Gothic engraving of the fifteenth century, are considered the first representations of this dog. In the 16th century, it had become commonplace among the Hungarian aristocracy and nobility, that they used it both for hunting and for the companion dog.

Numerous crosses between hunting dogs took place since the 16th century and gave the Vizsla your current appearance. There is no clear information on the different breeds used, but several sources, including the reference book The Hungarian Vizsla, written by Gay Gottlieb and published in 1985, they mention Setter, German Shorthaired Pointer, Serbian hound, English Foxhound, English Greyhound, Sloughi and Romanian dog breeds. In any case, the goal was always to keep an aspect close to their ancestors, as evidenced by his yellow color and brown nose. The latter distinguishes it from most other pointer breeds., who have a black nose.

In 1924 a breeding club was formed in Hungary and the first individuals were recorded at that time. In the Decade of 1930 the development of Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla) raised fears that the characteristics of the breed would be lost, but a rigorous breeding program under the aegis of the breed club made it possible to separate the breeds and prevent their characteristics from being diluted through inappropriate crossbreeding..

Like many other races, the Vizsla suffered severely during World War II, but he quickly regained his health. Already in 1954 was recognized by the International Cynological Federation (FCI), which supervises the national organizations of a hundred countries, including France, Belgium and Switzerland.

It was also in the decade of 1950 when a first specimen was imported into the United States, despite the context of the cold war. This led to the recognition of the breed by the American Kennel Club (AKC) already in 1960.

The world's leading dog associations followed suit, like the British Kennel Club (KC) in 1971 and the American United Kennel Club (UKC) in 1984. El Canadian Kennel Club (CKC), as well as a large majority of national organizations around the world also recognize it.

Popularity

Known all over the world, the Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla) enjoys some popularity in general. But, There are, of course, significant differences between countries.

in hungary, your country of origin, It's very common. With a total of more than 8.000 individuals registered in the “Magyar Ebtenyészt?k Országos Egyesületeinek Szövetsége“, the reference body of the country, it is even by far the most widespread indigenous breed. Its representatives are three times more numerous than those of the “Hungarian Wire-haired Pointer“.

In France, made significant progress in the last decades of the 20th century. The number of births registered each year in the French Stud Book (LOF) in the early decade of 1970 increased from about 40 to more than double at the end of the decade. Exceeded 150 at the end of the Decade of 1980, and then entered the new millennium with more than 200 births per year. The number has remained practically stable since then, fluctuando between 200 and 300 annual records, with sometimes significant variations from one year to another. These figures are still relatively modest: to the Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla) struggles to make a name for himself among the most popular hunting dog breeds, although it is much more popular than its wire-haired counterpart. The “Hungarian Wire-haired Pointer” does not usually have more than 50 births per year.

They are also quite discreet in Switzerland, since statistics from the Amicus database show that they are not among the 50 most numerous dog breeds in the country.

The situation is very different in Britain, where is an important and growing success. Has grown from around 1.000 annual registrations at the Kennel Club in the mid-1990s 2000 to 1.500 early in the decade 2010. This digit, already estimated, then doubled over the decade, to the point of approaching 3000 births per year.

It is also a great success in the United States, occupying the position 30 (almost 200) in the most popular breeds based on annual AKC registration statistics. His wire-haired counterpart is far behind, finishing near the bottom of the rankings at around 160th place.

It is also successful in some countries far from its homeland, like Argentina, where there is more than 4.000 specimens.

In any case, el ong>Braco Húngaro de pelo corto is generally much better established than its descendant the “Hungarian Wire-haired Pointer“. Perhaps the only exception is the Czech Republic, where there are some 5.000 of each race.

Physical characteristics

The Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla) it is a medium sized hunting dog. He looks a lot like his descendant the Hungarian Wire-haired Pointer, but with a shorter coat and a slightly less voluminous silhouette.

His body is almost square, slightly longer than tall, with lean, well-defined muscles that leave no room for superfluous curves. The legs are made of solid bones, well muscled and ending in slightly oval legs with brown nails.

The tail, set a little low and descending to the hock, is wide at the base and then gradually tapers towards the tip. Using this dog for hunting means that it has long been shortened by a quarter of its length to reduce the risk of injury. This practice of cutting off a dog's tail (tail docking) still practiced in some countries, but is currently banned in an increasing number of territories, including France, Belgium, Switzerland and Quebec.

The head has a broad skull, moderately domed with a moderate stop. The ears, located on the back, they are quite long (about three-quarters of the length of the head) and hang along the cheeks. The eyes are oval and brown in color, as dark as possible. The snout, pretty short, is truncated (not pointed in any way) and ends in a big brown nose, darker than fur.

The top layer is, of course, short, as the breed name suggests, but also very close and rough to the touch. But, is finer and silkier on the face and ears, a little lighter on the belly and a little longer under the tail. It's important pointing that, unlike in the Hungarian Wire-haired Pointer, the Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla) does not have undercoat.

Whether it is short haired or wire haired, the Vizsla should have a uniform golden wheat color throughout the body except the ears, which are darker in color. Red tones are not desired, brown or discolored. A white mark on the chest or throat is acceptable, but should not exceed 5 cm..

Finally, sexual dimorphism is well marked in the Vizsla, the male being significantly larger and larger than the female.

Varieties:

The Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla) appeared in the decade of 1930 as a result of a cross between two females of Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla) and a male of German Shorthaired Pointer. Although they are very close, They are considered two separate breeds by international and national canine organizations that recognize them, and not two varieties of the same breed.

Apart from his longer hair and his characteristic goatee, the Hungarian Wire-haired Pointer are very similar, if they are not identical, to their ancestors.

But, specialists have found that on average they are slightly larger and heavier than their short-haired counterparts. This difference is also reflected in the rules of the American Kennel Club, that describes the Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla) as an average of 1 cm smaller than its descendant. On the other hand, the norm of the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) -which is used by the national canine organizations of reference in France, Belgium and Switzerland- does not mention that difference.

So, if there are some more or less subtle differences in terms of appearance, the same cannot be said in terms of character: in this field, the Hungarian Wire-haired Pointer hardly differs from his alter ego the Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla).

Character and skills

The temperament of Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla) does not differ by coat length. The Hungarian Wire-haired Pointer has the same character traits.

They are very affectionate dogs and very attached to their family. But, they always feel closer to a particular member of the household, who then becomes his favorite human, and they don't try to hide their prejudice.

In any case, is much less sociable with people who are not part of the home: he is not aggressive with them, but prefers to ignore them and act as if they are not there… at least as long as they don't represent a danger to him. In fact, his closeness to his family makes him protective of both his family and his territory. Reprimands in a deterrent way when a threat approaches, and does not hesitate to intervene if necessary.

With the kids, his attitude is similar: he is close and tender with those who live with him, for whom it is an excellent playmate, but ignore his friends who come to the house, or those you meet in the park. Even worse, if you mistakenly perceive certain games with the little one of the family as an aggression on their part, your protective instincts can lead you to react violently, mostly because he's always on the prowl. In any case, know it or not, you should never be left alone with a small child, without adult supervision. This is true for any dog, regardless of race.

The Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla) he is very sociable with his companions, whether they live under the same roof or with strangers you meet on a walk. Having him share your home with another dog is a good way to avoid boredom if his handlers are regularly absent..

The same cannot be said for a cohabitation with a small animal, that would quickly turn sour. If you have been used to being around the domestic cat from an early age, he has every chance of being considered a full member of your family, and therefore to be left alone. On the other hand, A bird, rodent or reptile is likely to awaken the hunting instinct that has accompanied it for generations. A small animal unknown to him and that he would have the bad idea to pass by during his pilgrimages would also have every chance of suffering a sad fate.. For the same reason, it is advisable to keep it on a leash in places where the probability of such encounters is quite high.

Bred for centuries to hunt in the wild, the Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla) they are active dogs that must be able to spend at least an hour a day to feel comfortable on their paws. But their resistance allows them to go much further, if given the opportunity. Daily walks are the best part of the day for him, and long weekend outings that allow you to spend several hours in the desert are probably the highlight of your week. If there is a lake or a river in the way, feel free to stop there: without being particularly fond of either, loves water and is a good swimmer. Hunting is, without a doubt, the activity that most allows him to mobilize his independent spirit and his remarkable sense of smell.. It´s, with much, his favorite, but you can also excel in dog sports that also allow these qualities to be expressed, like crawl or cavity. He is also perfectly capable of learning other disciplines, so much so that it is not uncommon to see representatives of the breed on the podiums of obedience or agility competitions.

Even more, his physical qualities and his resistance also make him a great companion for those who want to run with their dog, ride a bike with him and take him for a ride. On the other hand, given your significant need for exercise, not recommended at all for elderly or overly sedentary people.

In any case, best kept on a leash in urban or residential areas to avoid drama if small animals pass by, on the other hand, remove it in the wild, so you can run free and vent. This assumes that the withdrawal orders are perfectly acquired, but even when this is the case, it is difficult to fully trust his propensity to return without delay as soon as he is asked to do so. So, it is advisable to equip your dog with a GPS dog collar, so you can easily find it if you venture a little too far, especially since he might not be able to find his way back.

As long as you are able to exercise enough each day, the Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla) it is perfectly suitable for apartment living, If and when, of course, is the right size for your build. Having said that, the ideal for him is still a house with a garden. It goes without saying that the garden must be perfectly closed, to prevent any attempt to chase an animal. It also, although he greatly appreciates being able to go outside at any time to stretch his legs, this dog is not cut out for spending most of his time outdoors: although he can sleep outside, appreciates the comfort of home and the proximity of his family.

But, They are not the type of dog that will follow your wishes with finger and eye. Centuries of hunting with a high degree of autonomy have made it quite independent, which can be problematic if you are faced with an inexperienced owner or one who is not able to be firm enough to command respect for your dog.

Having said that, this independence of mind does not mean that he appreciates being left home alone for long periods of time. You can tolerate your family being normally away during the day as long as they pay attention to you at night, but risks destructive behavior if left alone for a whole weekend.

Last, the Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla) has a powerful voice, but rarely heard. Usually, barks only when threatened, or feel that something really important should be reported.

Education

The training of a Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla) can be problematic for a caregiver who does not know how to command respect and authority. With his independent character and his intelligence above the average, this dog can quickly turn things around and take control if given the opportunity.

Clear rules that are established at the beginning and that are consistent over time and among family members help establish discipline that is easy to understand and respect.. Establishing and enforcing these rules is crucial to having a dog that knows what is expected of him and follows it.. But, should not be done in one way; in particular, traditional training techniques should not be used, as they can traumatize the dog and cause blockages. On the other hand, educational methods based on positive reinforcement give much better results.

At the end, the training of Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla) generally does not present any difficulties, not even for a beginning caregiver, as long as the hierarchy is well established. This is all the more true since he is not one of those who question it systematically afterwards.

So, learning how to call back should be a priority, so that it can be allowed to run freely when the environment is suitable (forest, etc.), instead of having to keep it on a leash at all times. Having said that, it is difficult to expect complete reliability in this matter, given the strength of his hunting instinct.

Like any other race, the Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla) you should start socializing as soon as you get to your new home. This is generally done without problems, his curious and open nature helps him to quickly get acquainted with different people, animals and situations you may encounter, either occasionally or more regularly. This period should be used to get to know people (friends, neighbors, veterinary, etc.) and the human beings you will meet more or less frequently in your life. It is also the right time to get him used to meeting all kinds of unfamiliar humans and dogs., so you know how to behave in all circumstances.

Health

The Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla) they are generally robust, with a life expectancy of around 12-14 years, which is in line with the average of dogs of their size.

Their short coat protects them from both heat and cold, allowing them to live in a wide variety of climates. But, not adapted to extremes, and can't sleep outside when freezing, for example, or run in the sun in the middle of a summer heat wave.

No dog is immune to disease, and the Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla) is no exception. In this case, to which it is most exposed are ..:

  • The Hip Dysplasia, a joint problem often favored by a hereditary predisposition, causing pain and difficulty in movement, as well as osteoarthritis with age;
  • Elbow dysplasia, a malformation of the joint, which is also possibly related to a predisposition inherited from parents, and that also causes pain and lameness;
  • Epilepsy, a nervous system disease of often hereditary origin, responsible for more or less frequent and intense seizures. The disease cannot be cured on its own, but your symptoms can be relieved with the help of medication;
  • Addison's disease, a hormonal deficiency that is usually inherited from the parents and manifests itself in various ways: weakness, vomiting, diarrhea, weightloss… The most severe form of the disease is usually fatal, while the chronic form can be kept under control with lifelong treatment;
  • Hemophilia type A, an inherited disorder that prevents blood from clotting properly, and that affects men more than women. May manifest in heavy bleeding, bruising or blood in the urine;
  • Hyperuricosia, a disease also inherited from the parents. Corresponds to an excess of uric acid, leading to the formation of crystals in the urine, which in turn can cause bleeding and kidney failure;
  • Allergies, that can be caused by factors as different as food, the environment or parasites. Allergies can be caused by factors as different as food, the environment or parasites, and most often manifest as itching and redness of the skin;
  • Ear infections, as in most breeds of dogs with drooping ears.

The Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla) it is also particularly susceptible to various diseases of the eyes:

  • Progressive retinal atrophy, a degeneration of eye tissue that causes irreparable loss of sight, first at night and then also during the day;
  • Entropion, a defect in the position of the eyelid that can be inherited and causes irritation of the eyeball. The problem can be treated with surgery;
  • Ectropión, an eyelid curl problem also inherited from parents, which also causes eye irritation. Also in this case, an operation remedies the problem;
  • Glaucoma, often hereditary, which is a painful increase in the pressure inside the eye. This leads to blindness if it is not operated as soon as possible.

It also, people who are used to hunt are particularly exposed to the risk of injuries that this activity implies.

Since many of the diseases to which the breed is predisposed are or may be hereditary, the adoption of a strict breeder of Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla) maximizes the probability of getting a healthy animal, and one that stays that way. In fact, a professional breeder not only ensures that puppies are well socialized from their first weeks of life, but also that they do not inherit a hereditary defect from their parents. To achieve this goal, causes various genetic tests to be systematically performed on the breeding stock in question, and excludes all those who could present any risk. You can also have the resulting puppies examined to confirm the absence of a hereditary condition.. In any case, must be able to present the results of the tests performed, plus a certificate of good health from a veterinarian and the puppy's health or vaccination record, that includes all vaccines that have been administered.

It also, from the moment he arrives home until the end of his life, it is essential to allow your dog to be regularly examined by a veterinarian for a complete health check. This is necessary at least once a year, and more often as you get older, as it allows early detection of a potential problem and action accordingly. These visits are also an opportunity to have immunizations increased when needed.. At the same time, It is also necessary to ensure that antiparasitic treatments of the “child” are renewed throughout the year, so you are never unprotected at this level.

Grooming

The Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla) it is an easy dog ​​to keep, especially when it comes to fur. A quick weekly brushing is enough to keep the coat clean and healthy. But, frequency should be increased during the two seasonal moulting periods, in spring and autumn. To help remove dead hairs, daily brushing is recommended.

It is also necessary to bathe from time to time, although the frequency required depends largely on the lifestyle of the animal. If your dog often lives in the woods for long hours and gets very dirty, it may help to give him a bath every month. On the other hand, if you spend most of your time in parks and have little exposure to the elements, bathe him 2 or 3 times a year is potentially sufficient. In all cases, it is imperative to always use a shampoo designed specifically for dogs, since the pH of your skin differs from that of humans.

Your ears are the part of your body that requires the most vigilance, since its drooping shape facilitates the accumulation of dirt and moisture, and therefore the development of infections (ear infections, etc.). So, must be checked and cleaned every week, as well as drying out every time you have bathed in a lake or river or come back from a long period of time in a humid environment.

The weekly maintenance session of the Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla) should also include an exam and, if necessary, cleaning the eyes, to prevent dirt from building up and causing infection.

It also, like all the other dogs, the Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla) is not immune to tartar and its accompanying problems: bad breath, oral diseases… Brushing the teeth with a toothpaste for canine use is necessary at least once a week, but even more frequent brushing is recommended, even daily.

The claws of the Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla) they are particularly hard and therefore do not wear out much, even though he is very active. So, they need to be trimmed every month or so to prevent them from getting in your way or even hurting you. In any case, as soon as you hear them rubbing on the ground when you walk, it's time to take care of them.

Finally, another good habit to adopt is to check their fur, ears and pads after every long walk in nature, to detect any cuts or scratches, parasites, thorns…

Take care of a Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla) not particularly complex, but knowing how to do it well allows you to be more efficient and at the same time minimize the risks of hurting your pet, or even hurt her. So, it may be a good idea to learn them the first time from a professional groomer or vet. In any case, it is advisable not to wait to accustom your pet to these different manipulations, so that you accept them without hesitation throughout your life.

Food

The Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla) fits very well with commercially available industrial dog food. Both the choice of products and the definition of the given daily ration must be determined by age, the health status and activity level of the animal.

The latter can vary from one period to another., particularly in the case of individuals used for hunting. Servings must be adjusted accordingly, to ensure that the animal always provides all the energy it needs. But, this applies both up and down: for example, for a hunting dog, it is essential to return to normal portions once the hunting season is over, otherwise, overweight individuals may become overweight.

Obesity is not common in the Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla), but no dog is immune, especially if you've been spayed or neutered. A good habit is to weigh it every month. If the weight gain is confirmed or even accentuated by the following measures, it is necessary to visit the vet. In effect, only the vet can reliably determine the cause (it may not be related to your diet or activity level, but it may be caused, for example, due to illness or reaction to drug treatment), and propose a solution based on it.

It also, it is better to divide your daily ration into at least two meals: this makes digestion easier and reduces your propensity to claim, since then he knows he will be fed again later in the day.

It is also important to avoid giving your pet food intended for humans randomly, although it is very imploring when its owners are at the table, for example. In effect, unless you are sure that this is so, it is likely not meeting your nutritional needs and, therefore, cause more harm than good, especially, of course, if it contains dangerous foods for the canine population.

Last, like any of their races, the Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla) must be able to quench their thirst at will and have permanent access to fresh water.

Use

Historically, the main function of Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla) it was hunting. Can be used as pointers, runners or recuperators and are capable of working on all types of terrain, without hesitation to get into the water if necessary. It also, can attack both animals and game birds, acting alone or in tandem. But, it's unusual to find her performing in a pack. In any case, its hunting qualities continue to seduce and be used throughout the world today.

A caretaker adept at hiking, on horseback riding or mountain biking you will find in him a tireless companion always ready for new adventures. On the other hand, its need for activity makes it much less suitable for the most sedentary or elderly.

Last, the Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla) it is also an effective watchdog, whose very protective instinct compensates for a less impressive size than that of some of its races also capable of fulfilling this role.

    History

    Appeared somewhere between the steppes of Russia and the Carpathians, the Hungarian Braco (commonly known as Vizsla, What does it mean “pointer” in Hungarian) has an ancient history, probably thousands of years. He already accompanied the Magyar tribes before they settled in the Carpathian basin, where the current Hungary is located, in the 9th century.

    The first references to this dog date back to the 13th century, and more precisely to the story of one of the scribes of King Adelbert III (1235-1270) which recounts the migrations of the Hungarian people, in which the use of a yellowish dog named Vizsla for hunting. It was also depicted in the 14th century in the illustrations of the chronicles written by the Carmelites. Numerous sixteenth-century Hungarian documents also evoke his role as a faithful companion of kings and aristocracy..

    While there is no doubt that the Vizsla current is the result of numerous crossbreeds between hunting dogs over the centuries, these were always carried out in order to preserve the original features, as evidenced by the brown nose which is different from most others pointers.

    Historically, the Vizsla has always had a short coat. But, early twentieth century, in the decade of 1930, two breeders came up with the idea of ​​a Hungarian Wire-haired Pointer to the country breeders' club. His goal was to create a dog with all the qualities of the Vizsla, but with a coat that would protect it more effectively from snow and icy water, as well as scratches and scratches when hunting in the forest.

    Although it was debated, the proposal was accepted under certain conditions, including maintaining the same coat color. Jozsef Vasa, breeder of the Hungarian Braco, y Laszlo Gresznarik, breeder of the German Shorthaired Pointer, crossed two female Vizsla named Csibi and Zsuzsi with a male of German Shorthaired Pointer called Astor von Potat. Two generations later, Selle Day was the first Hungarian Wire-haired Pointer that was shown at a dog show.

    It seems that during World War II, when the population was in decline, crosses were also made with other breeds such as the Setter Irish or the Griffon. But, there is no record of this miscegenation in the records kept by Hungarian organizations.

    The breed was recognized in 1963 by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI), nine years after the Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla). The first specimens were exported to North America in the decade of 1970. More quickly adopted in Canada, to the point of gaining official recognition from the Canadian Kennel Club (CKC) in 1977.

    In the United States, was not up 2006 and 2014 respectively than the United Kennel Club (UKC) and the American Kennel Club (AKC) they did the same, while they had already recognized the Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla) in 1960 (AKC) and 1984 (UKC). Its growing presence in Europe also allowed it to be recognized by the British Kennel Club. (KC) in 1991.

    Physical characteristics

    The Hungarian Wire-haired Pointer it is a medium-sized dog that differs from its short-haired cousin by its slightly squarer appearance on average, but also and above all because of the length and texture of its coat.

    Its slightly rectangular body is dry and well developed, no superfluous roundness. He leans on legs of solid bones, well structured and with prominent muscles. The legs are oval in shape and end in brown claws.

    The tail is wide at the base and tapers to the tip. For years, as a precaution for hunting parties, the queue was shortened by about a quarter. This practice of cutting the tail of dogs (tail docking) is currently prohibited in many territories, including France, Switzerland, Belgium and Quebec.

    The head of the Hungarian Wire-haired Pointer it is quite wide, with a slightly domed skull at a moderate stop. Ears are back, going down along the cheeks and are slightly shorter than those of the Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla). The eyes are oval, medium-sized, and brown according to the coat. The muzzle is quite short and ends in a broad brown nose as well, but darker in color than fur.

    It is the latter that clearly distinguishes it from its cousin.. Both have a dense, waterproof underlayer, but the top layer of the Hungarian Wire-haired Pointer is longer (2 to 3 cm.) and it has a completely different texture. They are made of wire hair, hard, dense and very dense. These features give it excellent protection against harsh outdoor conditions. At face level, hair is slightly shorter, except on the eyebrows and especially the beard. This is not very long (2-3cm.), but it is very pronounced and noticeable.

    Like his short haired counterpart, the fur of the Hungarian Wire-haired Pointer it's golden wheat, and the spikes may be darker in the shade. Shades of red, brown or light yellow are accepted, but they are not wanted. A small white spot on the chest is possible, as long as it does not exceed 5 cm..

    Finally, sexual dimorphism is well marked in this breed, the male being significantly larger and more massive than the female.

    Character and skills

    The character of Hungarian Wire-haired Pointer is comparable to the Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla), but with the addition of a wet beard when caressed.

    They are very close to their family and are affectionate and playful with their own. But, generally feels closer to a particular person among them, whom he considers as his human reference, and it doesn't stop making you feel clearly.

    In any case, he is much less open with humans who are not part of his home. This does not mean that he is aggressive or distrustful towards them., but rather indifferent.

    But, if you perceive a threat to your family or territory, whether it comes from an unknown human or another animal, he is very protective, not hesitating to scold or even interfere.

    He behaves in exactly the same way with children. Like this, is close to the little ones of the family, but he prefers to avoid others. You have to be careful when the first one plays with friends, as you may misinterpret some of the second's actions as aggression, and then react inappropriately. Like any other dog of any breed, should not be left alone with a young child without adult supervision.

    The Hungarian Wire-haired Pointer gets along well with his peers, whether they are those you meet on your walks or those who share your home when necessary. Their relationships with other animals are much more complicated, as they soon fall victim to their strong hunting instinct. The domestic cat is usually protected, especially if you have grown up with him since he was young, but a rodent or a bird cannot say the same if he lives next to him in the house or is on a walk. An unknown cat is also likely to be relentlessly chased.

    Used for centuries to succeed on long hunting trips, the Hungarian Wire-haired Pointer still an active dog today. You need to be able to exercise for at least an hour each day to feel comfortable, and you feel even happier if you can spend whole days walking through the forest. So, its level of activity implies that it is not suitable for an elderly or very sedentary person.

    Hunting is still his favorite activity, and the one that best allows you to express all your qualities. Otherwise, canine research sports (tracking, Cavemen…) they are a perfect outlet, to solicit your extraordinary sense of smell.

    Obedience and agility are also disciplines that will do you good. More simply, it is also a great companion for cyclists, runners, hikers, nature lovers, mushroom pickers… This is all the more true since it is robust and capable of evolving on all types of terrain., from dense forests to rocky mountains, passing through snowy plains or swamps.

    In the city, it is strongly recommended to keep him on a leash to avoid accidents if he runs after a passing cat or small animal. But, once in the desert, it is much more appropriate to let it run free. Of course, learning withdrawal orders is an essential prerequisite, for obvious security reasons. A GPS dog collar is nevertheless a good investment to help locate you if the deer you are chasing has led you into unfamiliar terrain..

    It also, as it does very well in the aquatic environment. Without being particularly fond, he likes to swim once in a while, especially if the place where you live offers this possibility.

    Used to hunting quite independently and, Therefore, to make decisions for themselves, the Hungarian Wire-haired Pointer has acquired a certain intelligence coupled with a strong character. A beginning teacher is probably overwhelmed.

    If you are independent in your way of acting, does not mean that he likes to be alone. You can wait patiently at home when your family is at work during the day, but should be able to be as much as possible with the rest of the time. It also, it is likely to hurt if left alone for a whole weekend because it cannot bear the stress caused by the absence of its masters. It also, just because you are physically fit to sleep in the garden, even when it's a little cool, does not mean that this is recommended. In fact, to be well in the head, do not keep him away from his family: it's more of an indoor dog, who prefers to watch television at night with his family than to admire the stars alone outside.

    This is all the more true as he is surprisingly calm when his exercise needs are met., to the point of being able to live in an apartment, provided it is large enough to accommodate it in good condition. Discreet and well educated, are not the type that barks on top of your lungs or howls when you die, and are not usually noticed by the neighbors. In fact, they rarely bark (generally when they perceive a threat), but then they don't stop making themselves heard, since his voice rises a lot.

    But, the ideal environment for him is a house with a garden (perfectly fenced) in the countryside. A walk in the city during the same time does not have the same flavor as an outing for a dog accustomed to nature and the great outdoors.

    Education

    Like all dogs, the Hungarian Wire-haired Pointer benefits greatly from socialization that begins in its first few weeks and continues for the following months. Usually goes smoothly, since then he is particularly open and curious, quickly getting used to the different environments and situations you encounter. It´s, because, the ideal time to get used to the people you will meet regularly in your life (friends, neighbors, veterinary…), but also to take him to all kinds of places and allow him to meet various humans and similar creatures.

    The education of Hungarian Wire-haired Pointer can give a slightly timid caregiver a hard time, that you wouldn't know how to be respected by your dog. Strong of character and independent, will soon prevail if left alone. But, perfectly suited to beginners, as long as they know how to assert their authority. For this, it is important to establish clear and consistent rules without delay, so much over time (what is prohibited one day is also prohibited the next day) as between the different members of the family (it is not about one person authorizing what another person prohibits), to establish impeccable discipline and ensure that he respects his master's authority. Once you understand that you can't decide for yourself, accepts the situation and is not the one to monitor the slightest defect and constantly question the established order – If and when, of course, their masters continue to know how to impose themselves when necessary.

    On the other hand, educate a Hungarian Wire-haired Pointer it's much simpler, fast and effective with methods based on positive reinforcement. Compliments and caresses are a good source of motivation to make her want to learn, and sweets are also valuable allies to motivate him to do what is asked of him. On the other hand, traditional training techniques are doomed to failure, as they are likely to totally destabilize it, making him fearful and insecure.

    Last, withdrawal orders are high on the list of things to teach your dog as a priority. In fact, so that you can let him play freely during field trips, which is particularly beneficial for him, must be perfectly assimilated.

    Health

    The Hungarian Wire-haired Pointer they are generally robust, with a life expectancy of around 12-14 years, which is in line with the average of dogs of their size.

    Their short coat protects them from both heat and cold, allowing them to live in a wide variety of climates. But, not adapted to extremes, and can't sleep outside when freezing, for example, or run in the sun in the middle of a summer heat wave.

    No dog is immune to disease, and the Hungarian Wire-haired Pointer is no exception. In this case, to which it is most exposed are ..:

    • The Hip Dysplasia, a joint problem often favored by a hereditary predisposition, causing pain and difficulty in movement, as well as osteoarthritis with age;
    • Elbow dysplasia, a malformation of the joint, which is also possibly related to a predisposition inherited from parents, and that also causes pain and lameness;
    • Epilepsy, a nervous system disease of often hereditary origin, responsible for more or less frequent and intense seizures. The disease cannot be cured on its own, but your symptoms can be relieved with the help of medication;
    • Addison's disease, a hormonal deficiency that is usually inherited from the parents and manifests itself in various ways: weakness, vomiting, diarrhea, weightloss… The most severe form of the disease is usually fatal, while the chronic form can be kept under control with lifelong treatment;
    • Hemophilia type A, an inherited disorder that prevents blood from clotting properly, and that affects men more than women. May manifest in heavy bleeding, bruising or blood in the urine;
    • Hyperuricosia, a disease also inherited from the parents. Corresponds to an excess of uric acid, leading to the formation of crystals in the urine, which in turn can cause bleeding and kidney failure;
    • Allergies, that can be caused by factors as different as food, the environment or parasites. Allergies can be caused by factors as different as food, the environment or parasites, and most often manifest as itching and redness of the skin;
    • Ear infections, as in most breeds of dogs with drooping ears.

    The Hungarian Short-Haired Pointer (Vizsla) it is also particularly susceptible to various diseases of the eyes:

    • Progressive retinal atrophy, a degeneration of eye tissue that causes irreparable loss of sight, first at night and then also during the day;
    • Entropion, a defect in the position of the eyelid that can be inherited and causes irritation of the eyeball. The problem can be treated with surgery;
    • Ectropión, an eyelid curl problem also inherited from parents, which also causes eye irritation. Also in this case, an operation remedies the problem;
    • Glaucoma, often hereditary, which is a painful increase in the pressure inside the eye. This leads to blindness if it is not operated as soon as possible.

    It also, people who are used to hunt are particularly exposed to the risk of injuries that this activity implies.

    Since many of the diseases to which the breed is predisposed are or may be hereditary, the adoption of a strict breeder of Hungarian Wire-haired Pointer maximizes the probability of getting a healthy animal, and one that stays that way. In fact, a professional breeder not only ensures that puppies are well socialized from their first weeks of life, but also that they do not inherit a hereditary defect from their parents. To achieve this goal, causes various genetic tests to be systematically performed on the breeding stock in question, and excludes all those who could present any risk. You can also have the resulting puppies examined to confirm the absence of a hereditary condition.. In any case, must be able to present the results of the tests performed, plus a certificate of good health from a veterinarian and the puppy's health or vaccination record, that includes all vaccines that have been administered.

    It also, from the moment he arrives home until the end of his life, it is essential to allow your dog to be regularly examined by a veterinarian for a complete health check. This is necessary at least once a year, and more often as you get older, as it allows early detection of a potential problem and action accordingly. These visits are also an opportunity to have immunizations increased when needed.. At the same time, It is also necessary to ensure that antiparasitic treatments of the “child” are renewed throughout the year, so you are never unprotected at this level.

    Grooming

    Keep warm Hungarian Wire-haired Pointer it's quite simple, weekly brushing is enough to keep it clean and healthy. But, she lets go of her undercoat twice a year, in spring and autumn, and daily brushing is recommended to help remove dead hairs.

    An occasional bath is also necessary, but the frequency of the bath largely depends on the lifestyle of your dog. These may include, it is not useless to bathe several times a month an individual who is used for hunting or who often travels on muddy trails in the forest and sleeps inside the house. On the other hand, two or three a year may be perfectly enough for someone else who walks mostly on rocky trails in the mountains and whose place to sleep is in the garage. In any case, you should always use a mild shampoo designed specifically for dogs, as it can damage their fur or skin.

    It also, special attention should be paid to their ears, as their fallen form means they are potential nests for infections (ear infections, etc.) as soon as dirt or moisture accumulates on them. So, it is important to check and clean them weekly. At the same time, it is important to get used to drying them after a long time in a humid environment, and even more so after swimming in a swamp, lake or stream…

    The weekly maintenance session is also an opportunity to examine and, if required, quickly clean the area around the eyes with a damp cloth, again to avoid infections that would be triggered by a dirt deposit.

    As in any dog, oral hygiene is also important. So, the Hungarian Wire-haired Pointer you should brush your teeth at least once a week, using a toothpaste intended for canine use. This will reduce the deposit of dental plaque., that can cause bad breath, cavities and other diseases by turning into tartar.

    It also, despite what their rather active lifestyle might have us believe, this dog needs to have its claws trimmed by hand fairly regularly. This is because they are particularly strong and difficult to wear out.. On average, must be trimmed every 2 or 3 weeks, but if they are not cut every 2 or 3 weeks, it is enough to stretch your ear when walking on hard ground: if then you hear a kind of click with each step, it is because they have become too long and it is time to cut them. Otherwise, not only could it make it difficult for you to walk, but you could also be injured if they broke.

    Last, it is recommended to examine it (fur, ears, pads…) after every hunting session or a long stay in the wild, to detect possible cuts or scratches, parasites, thorns…

    As in all races, learn how to care for a Hungarian Wire-haired Pointer from a professional (hairdresser or vet) it is the best way to take care of it without risk of damaging or injuring it. It is advisable to accustom him to these different manipulations from a very young age, so that they become a moment of shared pleasure, and not in a task that I try to avoid.

    The Weimaraner It is a medium-sized to large hunting dog.

    History

    The Weimaraner is a specially equipped with dog as a dog collector.

    The history of Weimaraner begins with Grand Duke Carl August and the nobles of the court of Weimar, known as the hunter among kings and the king among hunters, you have selected the gray race silver for hunting in forests. According to German tradition, not only the time annulled the traces of the origin of the breed, but they were perhaps cancelled deliberately by the nobles of the time, so that this magnificent specimen is exclusive to the court of Weimar. The theory today proves that it comes from France and indirectly from North Africa.. It is thought this because of the colour of the fur, similar to the race of Saint Louis.

    Gray color is a recessive inherited trait, so it follows that it was selected to obtain it. We know today as the Silver ghosts or grey ghosts thanks to the American soldiers who watched them move gracefully through the German camps.

    Head with slightly pronounced occipital bone, similar to the implant of the ears, are also present in the Grey Saint Louis Hound. Do not cut tail has a particular curvature that resembles the tail of the Saluki. Exceptional smell, can be considered a characteristic inherited from the ancients Leithund of Tracia, that take us back to a time before the creation of the Weimar Republic.

    In the 13th century, Louis IX of France, returning from a crusade to North Africa, He brought with him copies of which later was called it the grey dog in Saint Louis, widely used in France for tracking and capture of pieces in the Woods. This breed did not live with the other dogs, lived with their caregivers, which may explain the union with man and the need to be in the family of the Weimaraner current. In the 15th century, other grey dogs were brought to Europe from Asia.

    Finally the Grand Duke Carl August, passionate about all dog, Select race, search and find old french lines, and following the trend of the time, a versatile and agile dog, and probably crosses with him Old Spanish Pointer and some other races. These crossing comes from the Long hair Weimariano, which was officially accepted by the German club in 1935.

The official recognition of the breed was not easy to obtain, but finally in 1897 born German Club.

  • Immune-mediated disease: A small percentage of the puppies of Weimaraner react to vaccines, particularly to combination vaccines, with fever, an elevated white blood cell count and swollen tissues and joints. Reactions occur most frequently between 12 and 16 weeks of age.
  • Care

    The first thing to know about him Weimaraner is that it is a domestic dog. Not made for the kennel or backyard life, and it's not made for apartment living either. This highly active dog needs a large, safe yard where he can run, and an active family that gives you the exercise and mental stimulation you need.

    A sense of humor also helps, especially when you see how you Weimaraner has remodeled your garden in its efforts to get rid of mice, moles and bugs. You will be proud of yourself for your good efforts, so don't forget to praise him while you calculate in your head how long, money and effort it will take to put the garden back the way you like it. You may want to monitor him more closely and provide him with additional exercise..

    The Weimaraner they need a couple of hours of daily exercise if they want to avoid barking, recreational chewing and digging. Play fetch and other running games, take him for a jog or a walk, teach him to run alongside his bike or get him involved in a dog sport like agility or flyball. Y, of course, you can always take him hunting.

    Make sure your patio is leak proof. The Weimaraner They are Houdinis when it comes to confinement, and they are very good at learning to open doors and gates and jump or dig under fences. That is another reason why they are best kept as domestic dogs..

    In the House, a Weimaraner mature and well trained will be his shadow, from the bedroom to the bathroom and from the kitchen to the den. a puppy of Weimaraner is challenging and requires careful supervision. Can be a destructive chewer and difficult to train. Box training is a good idea.

    The Weimaraner of any age with separation anxiety, which is not unusual for this breed, can become destructive and can “scratch” on your rug or sofa in an attempt to create a safe nest.

    The Weimaraner they are very intelligent, and they are also independent thinkers. That combination can make them a challenge when it comes to training.. Be consistent and firm, but soft. The Weimaraner is sensitive and does not respond well to anger, but should be able to say “No” and mean it. Keep training sessions short and interesting, and always end them when you've done something right so I can praise you for a job well done. Last, but not less important, keep your sense of humor. Its Weimaraner may or may not do what I ask, depending on many factors, but will always disobey with style.

    Grooming

    One Weimaraner it is one of the easiest breeds to care for. Even when he's been running through the mud, dirt seems to fall off it. Weekly brushing with a bristle brush should keep their fur and skin healthy. The Weimaraner they shed their fur, but brushing will help keep hair loose from your clothes and furniture. For your Weimaraner glasses, clean it with a chamois. Bathe when necessary. Likes to wallow in anything stinky, so it may be more often than would normally be necessary.

    All breeds with floppy ears tend to have problems with ear infections. Check your ears Weimaranerr weekly and clean them with a cotton swab moistened with a cleanser recommended by your veterinarian. Never insert cotton swabs or anything else into the ear canal, as it could damage it. Its Weimaraner you may have an ear infection if the inside of your ear smells bad, looks red or tender, or if you frequently shake your head or scratch your ear.

    Brush your teeth Weimaraner at least two to three times a week to remove tartar buildup and the bacteria that lurk inside. Daily brushing is even better if you want to prevent gum disease and bad breath.

    Trim the nails once or twice a month if your dog doesn't wear them down naturally. If you can hear the click of nails on the ground, they are too long. Short, well-trimmed nails keep the paws in good condition and prevent scratching when the Weimaraner jumps enthusiastically to greet him.

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

    While you clean him, check for sores, rashes or signs of infection such as redness, tenderness or inflammation of the skin, in the ears, nose, mouth and eyes, and on the feet. Eyes must be clear, no redness or discharge. Your careful weekly exam will help you detect possible health problems early.

    History

    The Portuguese Pointer arose from Perdigueiro Peninsular, an ancient breed of Iberian dogs, its presence is documented since the 10th century, Its first appearance in art is on a Visigothic-Arab tombstone of the Church of San Juan Bautista de Tomar. Its evolution was the result of several factors such as adaptation to the climate, the type of hunting, the terrain and the selection introduced through the Portuguese cultural specificity.

    In the fourteenth century, It was bred in the royal kennels and used for hunting Altaria, being known as “Podengo de mostra”, showing already the possibility of stopping before the hunt. In the 16th century (reign of D. Sebastian) its use by the popular classes was common (although prohibited). The constant bleeding in the working arms caused by the discoveries, the abandonment of the fields, hunger and change of habits, led the population to resort more to hunting for food and, as a result, to the use of Pointing Dogs, that they were “prohibited” for causing, thanks to its excellent qualities, serious damage to the vested interests of the royal house and the nobility.

    In the 18th century, Many English families established a presence in the Porto region in the business of wine production and came into contact with the breed being brought to England where it played an important role in the origin of the English Pointer.

    At the end of the 19th century it suffered a certain decline, due to serious social upheavals and new tastes and contacts with the outside world, that gave projection to the foreign races that were then in fashion. But it is still represented in art objects (tinaja painted by D. Fernando II of Saxe-Coburg, Pena-Sintra), painting of King D.Luis and the princes in hunting clothes in the Palace of Ajuda, Lisbon), painting of a hunting trip of an Englishman in the Douro (Quinta de Gatão, Duero) or in artistic ceramics by the Real Fábrica do Rato (Pimenta Palace, Lisbon).

    Only in 1920 some breeders strove to save the breed, locating some of the dogs in the inaccessible north of Portugal. The Portuguese pedigree book was then established in 1932 and the breed standard in 1938. For at least a thousand years, this dog always had the same square head, triangular ears and compact look.
