    History

    The Yorkshire Terrier, call Yorkie To abreviate, comes from the north of England and Scotland. Here it served for centuries as a versatile house and garden dog. Its territory was later the settlements of the working poor, that were built en masse with industrialization. The little houses were small, conditions were tight. There was no room for a big dog. The little terriers were exactly the right fit here and they served the village for many years as watchdogs and hunters. Keeping rats and mice away small, driving away a marten or fox that wanted to attack chickens or pigeons, occasionally killing a rabbit; the Yorkie proved to be a useful helper. It is even said that the old Yorkie has gone to the rabbit hole to hunt. Despite its rather delicate appearance, the Yorkshire Terrier it's a complete dog. Basically, it is a concise breed with a sometimes stubborn and fearless temperament. At the same time, has served as a lap dog for over 150 years.

    Your current form as “Yorkshire Terrier” with very long and silky hair is the result of a directed show breeding. In addition, their ancestors were normally much larger than the current ones or even the Toy Yorkies.

    In ancient documents, even 6 KG as the weight of a Yorkshire Terrier. Like the other little British Isles terriers, the Yorkie ultimately originates from a single large gene pool of those terriers from early working class settlements. Only through deliberate artificial separation, namely, the separation of the brood, became the many terrier breeds that are genetically separated today. Already in 1873 the Yorkshire Terrier was recognized as a breed of dog by the Kennel Club.

    According to records, the Yorkshire Terrier was the first most popular breed in the United States in 2002. His first appearance in a canine exposition took place around 1880, and immediately he found wide acceptance in the public. It currently ranks first in the English breeds, and it is one of the most widespread company dogs around the world.

    Sealyham Terrier

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

    Content

    History

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

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

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

    Physical characteristics

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

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

    Character and skills

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

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

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

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

    Sealyham Terrier Health

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

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

    Sealyham Terrier Care

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

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

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

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

    Sealyham Terrier grooming

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

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

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

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

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

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

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