    Alemania FCI 190 - Molossoid - Mountain

    Hovawart

    The term Hovawart derived from medieval german, in which -hova- meant “Court” and -wart-, “guardian”.

    Content

    History

    The dog as guardian of the house and the courtyard has an ancient tradition in the history of humanity. Maybe thousands of years ago, private ownership of the house and yard, goods and workshops could only be established with the help of the protective function of dogs. The four-legged court guards were already highly regarded by the Teutons, which is reflected in the various laws of the last Teutons. Of the 24 Lex Baiuvariorum articles, an entire article is dedicated only to dogs. Here, plus a dozen other dog breeds, the court dog is explicitly mentioned as “Houvavart”. The Houvavart was valued at 3 shillings. It was a huge amount, if you consider that in the same body of law a horse “mediocre” was valued at only half a shilling. The Hovawarts are also mentioned in various writings from the Middle Ages.

    The Hovawart Today is in the intellectual and functional tradition of these old court dogs. Regarding their genetic offspring, will not be more or less related to them than the other breeds of guard dogs and native dogs. Building a direct line of descent to old Hovavart would not be permissible, especially since it is not known at all what these dogs looked like.

    After 1910 the Hovawart but without a description of the appearance. Over the years 20 established itself as a breed of dog.

    In the FCI breed standard of 1998 It is said that:

    “From 1912 the reproduction of this breed has been using similar type dogs that are still in farms to restore the breed. Apart from this, at the beginning of the crossing, you cross them with German shepherds, Newfoundland, Leonberger and other races were admitted. In addition to the strict measures taken in the breeders, the type of work was obtained again.”

    In addition, crossed the Hungarian watchdog Kuvasz, what is important to understand the nature of Hovawart. After having almost died out, after the first world war, the breed was recovered by the kinophile K. F. king. In a span of time, what had been done very successfully thousands of years before was rebuilt here. Like, but mostly of the nature the right dogs were mated. The decisive criterion was performance for the intended purpose, so to speak, the work championship. It is quite possible that the Hovawart current look like the old ones Hovawart of our ancestors by this procedure of appearance and nature, but that is speculation. Only in 1944 brood book closed. So a vast gene pool was created as the basis for this breed of dog., that even today is very useful for your health and fitness.

    Physical characteristics

    The Hovawart is a big dog, strong and at the same time quite thin. With the Hovi today three strokes of color are allowed: Rubio, black marks (black with gold brown markings) black and white. Males have a height to the cross of 63 a 70 cm.. Considering its type and size, the Hovawart is thinner than it appears underneath its medium long wavy coat.

With built-in yard dog, the Hovawart not fully occupied, especially since nowadays it has to barely monitor a large enough area. He is intelligent and seeks true association with his caregiver. At the same time it is affectionate and sensitive and at the same time it radiates something primitive, archaic.

Often rejoices with petting and hitting like a little lapdog. He is very friendly and gentle with the people he has taken to his heart. Once you meet them, will never forget them. When he is young he shows his affection sometimes very stormy.

Here its owner must assert himself with the consequent nonchalance, then he will follow faithfully and with good behavior and accept the leadership of his humans without problems.

    One must bring with him time and knowledge for an intensive education and, the best of all, training. If one loses the basic elements of education, you can hardly walk with him without stress. So your self-confidence could even become a leadership claim.. Otherwise, the Hovawart it's the ideal companion dog image. He wants his humans to guide him, but without ever being submissive. The Hovawart maintains its own head and its own will. For some people this is perhaps too much of their own personality. But only this profile of the Hovawart can be an excellent basis for a respectful and intense human-dog relationship.

    Eurasian
    Alemania FCI 291 . Asian Spitz and related breeds

    Eurasier

    The Eurasian is confident, quiet, tolerant, adaptable, willing to learn and smart.

    Content

    History

    In the Decade of 1960, Julius Wipfel raised females of Keeshond (Wolfspitz) and males of Chow-Chow en Weinheim, Baden-Wurttemberg, initially the Wolf-Chow. He finally raised this dog with him Samoyed and obtained an original dog with a natural structure and a balanced character.

    In 1973 the breed was recognized by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) and it is, therefore, the youngest German dog breed. The youngest breed, officially recognized German breed owes its name to its original European breeds (Keeshond = EUR) and asian (Chow-Chow and Samoyed = ASIER). The task of the robust companion and family dog ​​with character was not even hunting, nor grazing, nor on guard. The Eurasian was bred solely as a social partner for humans.

    Physical characteristics

    The Eurasian is balanced, well built, medium-sized, with erect ears. It can be of different colours: Beige, reddish brown, the Grey Wolf, black. A characteristic feature is the Agouti coat pattern and stripe and stripe patterns., that for example wolves also have.
    The male has a height of 52 a 60 the cross and weighs cm, approximately, of 23 a 32 kg. The female has a height of 48 a 56 cm to cross and weighs between 18 a 26 kg.
    Typical of the coat of the Eurasian is his dense undercoat, which is excellent protection against cold and also repels dirt. Just the muzzle, the face, the ears and the front of the legs are short-haired. The tail, the back of the front legs and the back legs have long hairs.

    By the way, the Eurasian get their tongues partially and sometimes even completely blue from the Chow-Chow, whose blue tongue merged with the pink tongue of the Keeshond and Samoyed.

    Character and skills

    The Eurasian he is sure of himself, quiet, tolerant, adaptable, willing to learn and smart. Above all, animals are very close to their family members, which does not make them a one man dog.

    The Eurasian they need constant and close contact with their humans and are therefore completely unsuitable for housing in kennels. In an animal shelter, these sensitive dogs would suffer extraordinarily and eventually wither. How the Eurasiers are so focused on their family, should not be left in the hands of other people, even when they are on vacation. Wants to be with his family, always and everywhere.

    These sensitive animals have a special feeling for the mood and disposition of their humans, and have a distinctive social behavior towards others Eurasian. In addition, dogs of this breed are elegant, self-confident and at the same time pleasantly stubborn. They can even trick their owners into getting their way.

    Activities with the Eurasian

    Although the Eurasian does not have pronounced hunting behavior, a certain prey drive may be present, as in most dogs. However, with a loving consistency, understanding, patience and treats, the Eurasian can be trained to become trouble-free and appreciative companions, that adapt to all situations in life. However, training in an outer hand is out of the question for a Eurasian. If you demand absolute obedience to a dog, you must choose another race.

    The Eurasian need about two hours of exercise a day. Your urge to move can be ideally satisfied by jogging, cycling the agility. Monotonous catch-up games like the one in “look for sticks” quickly bore this clever animal.

    Eurasian care

    Despite the dense undercoat, the care of the coat of the Eurasian it is not complicated and is limited to brushing once a week only during the change of coat, must be combed daily. The tongue of the Eurasier ranges from pink to an infinite number of varieties from pied blue to pure blue. The inheritance of Chow-Chow fascinates many passersby and often leads to confusion with the Chinese race. A Eurasier is an incorruptible friend for life.

    Buying a Eurasian from a breeder

    If you want to buy a puppy of Eurasian, you will need to be prepared for waiting periods, because there are only some 300 or 400 puppies per year under the umbrella organization of the VDH (German Canine Federation. Cubs Eurasian cost around 1000 EUR.

    History

    The race Dobermann is the only one in Germany to bear the name of its first known breeder: Friederich Louis Dobermann (2 of January 1834 – 9 of June 1894). According to the story, he was a tax collector, trail manager, and in addition “perrero”, with the legal right to catch all free-roaming dogs. To create the smart and reliable watchdog you had in mind, crossed short haired sheepdogs with Rottweilers, black and tan terrier, and German Pinschers. Chic dogs like greyhounds and Weimaraners may also have been part of their “recipe”. The “butcher dogs” played the most important role in the formation of the breed Dobermann, that in those times they were already seen as a race in itself. These dogs were of the type of the predecessors of the current Rottweiler, mixed with a type of black shepherd dog with red-rust markings that was common in the Thuringia region. With these mixtures, Dobermann started his hatchery in the years 70 of the century 19. In this way, he got “its race” utility dogs, home and ranches, they weren't just vigilantes, but also very attached to man.

    It was widely used as a protection dog and for the police. Its wide utility in the Police Service gave it at that time the name of “gendarme dog”. In hunting it was mainly used for the extermination of vermin. For all the conditions previously exposed, it was obvious that the FCI-St. N° 143 / 30.09.2016 3 Dobermann was officially recognized as a police dog at the beginning of the century 20. The upbringing of Dobermann resulted in a medium dog, strong and muscular, that despite all its substance allows to recognize elegance and nobility. It is suitable as a companion dog, protection and utility.

The upbringing of Dobermann resulted in a medium dog, strong and muscular, that despite all its substance allows to recognize elegance and nobility. It is suitable as a companion dog, protection and utility.

    Physical characteristics

The craniofacial lines are parallel, the stop is light and the nose, deep. The eyes are medium and oval. The ears have a high insertion and the animal has them upright. If they are whole, fall to the sides of the head, with the edges well glued to the cheeks. The back is short and solid. The limbs are straight and plump. The tail is amputated leaving two vertebrae.

    Character and skills

    It is one of the sweetest and most sensitive dogs in the world. He goes out of his way, with whom you should live in close contact. Leaving him alone in the garden would mean ruining his character.. About him Dobermann a lot of gossip circulates, like for example that this dog "goes crazy" around the age of seven due to the lack of cranial capacity (one of the biggest absurdities, from the scientific point of view, never heard in cynophilia, and it is not that few are heard). Today, Fortunately, rare are cases of "crazy" or "irrepressible ferocity".

    Very loving with family members and safe with children (provided they leave him alone), with strangers he maintains the typical reserve of defense dogs. A balanced specimen, like all those from good hatcheries, will never behave aggressively for no reason, and it will be shown as a splendid companion dog delivered to its owner.

    Start training your puppy the day you bring it home. Even at eight weeks old, He is able to absorb everything you can teach him. Do not wait until you have 6 months to start train or have to deal with more stubborn dog. If possible, Take it to a trainer when you have between 10 and 12 weeks, and socializes, socialice, socialice. However, Note that many kinds of training puppies require certain vaccinations (such as kennel cough) are a day, and many veterinarians recommend limited exposure to dogs and other public places until vaccines puppies (including rabies, distemper and parvovirus) They are completed. Instead of formal training, You can start training your puppy to socialize at home and among family and friends until immunizations are completed in the puppy.

    Talk to the breeder, Describe exactly what you want in a dog and ask for help choosing a puppy. Breeders see the puppies daily and can make incredibly precise recommendations once they know something about their lifestyle and personality. Regardless of what you want from a Dobermann, look for one whose parents have nice personalities and who has been well socialized since the puppy's first stage.

    Observations and tips

    Unselected dogs and the result of casual couplings are the only ones that can be nervous and in some cases biting. It is essential to buy the puppy in a good kennel that selects beauty and character.

    Doberman health

    All dogs have the potential to develop genetic health problems, and all people have the potential to inherit a particular disease. Run, do not walk, any breeder that does not offer a health guarantee in puppies, to tell you that the breed is 100 percent healthy and has no known problems, or to tell you that your puppies are isolated from the main part of the home for health reasons. A reputable breeder will be honest and open about the health problems of race and the incidence with which occur in their lines.

    One of the most serious race-related health problems in the Doberman is cardiomyopathy., which causes an increase in the size of the heart. An annual heart exam is critical to detect this condition early., and no dog with cardiomyopathy should be bred. Nor should any Dobermann without a complete cardiac examination by a veterinary cardiologist in the past year. The sad reality, However, is that a dog that gets a good exam one day can develop heart disease the next day, and the two-parent puppy without heart disease can still develop it.

    Another race-related condition that affects the Dobermann is cervical vertebral instability (CVI), commonly called Wobbler syndrome. It is caused by a malformation of the vertebrae in the neck that causes pressure on the spinal cord and leads to weakness and lack of coordination in the hindquarters and sometimes to complete paralysis.. Symptoms can be managed to some extent in dogs that are not severely affected, and some dogs experience some relief from surgery, but the result is not certain. Although IVC is believed to be genetic, there is no disease screening test.

    The Dobermans they are also prone to the bleeding disorder known as von Willebrand disease, as well as hypoadrenocorticism or Addison's disease.

    Not all of these diseases are detectable in a growing puppy, and it is impossible to predict whether an animal will be free from these diseases, so you need to find a reputable breeder who commit to raise healthier animals possible. Must be able to produce independent certification that the dog's parents (and grandparents, etc.) They have been examined for defects common and considered healthy for breeding. That's where they enter medical records.

    Breeders must accept that all test results, positive or negative, are published in the CHIC database. It is not necessary for a dog to receive good results or even pass the evaluations to obtain a CHIC number, so CHIC registration alone is not proof of robustness or absence of disease, but all test results are published on the CHIC website and can be accessed by anyone who wants to check the health of a puppy's parents. If the breeder tells you that you don't need to do those tests because you have never had a problem with your lines and your dogs have been “vet checked”, so you need to find a breeder who is more rigorous with genetic testing.

    Careful breeders examine their breeding dogs for genetic diseases and breed only the healthiest and best looking copies, but sometimes mother nature has other ideas and a puppy develops one of these diseases despite good breeding practices. Advances in veterinary medicine mean that in most cases dogs can still live a good life. If you are going to have a puppy, ask the breeder about the ages of the dogs in their lines and what they died from.
