Their attractive appearance and extraordinary obedience even provide spectacular exhibition successes . Affectionate , friendly and easy to train cocker spaniel becomes a trouble-free family member only if he devote enough time taking care of the proper physical and mental development , and education of the dog. This breed popularity and incredible take of dog lovers is due primarily to the specific characteristics of their character and physical advantages, excellent . Cocker Spaniel dog is in fact a cheerful , busy and has a great temperament , especially in the field. It is easy to arrange . Cocker spaniels have a huge passion for buszowania , browsing in dense shrubs , reeds and thickets. They are characterized by a passion for swimming. , Diving and retrieving from the water and on land .

They are tied to the owner and very alert, have a mild nature , and are quiet at home , but if necessary very vigilant . These innate traits and ease undergo obedience training spaniels are about the suitability of the use of hunting dogs as płochaczy and aportujących small animals – so when hunting in the area dry as the water. Hunters in England, appreciate excellent working dog in the field, a number of tasks assigned to him . One advantage of the forest, the other in the field, yet another in wetlands , rich in ponds , rivers and lakes . Dog aportujący animals usually do not exhibited . Because fetching – according to the English hunters – ” spoils ” of perfection and purity working dog tags , intended primarily for display or shooing game. Therefore, for example, foxhoundy are used in hunting foxes , Harriers – the hare , beagle – rabbits . In turn, retrievers used only to retrieve and bloodhounds ( hound ) to follow the trail of wounded game. Still other races are used as norowce or blood tracking trial . So far-reaching specialization has led to the emergence and spread of a group of hunting dogs across subgroups płochaczy , among which the first place – precisely because of the absolute work – take spaniels . Origin spaniels is not exactly known today , like many others, much older breeds of dogs. Numerous signs seem to indicate that resembled a spaniel dog was known fourth century BC The prototype spaniel preserved in the rediscovered sculpture, dating to the time of Philip II , father of Alexander the Great. The dogs of similar appearance spaniel had to be well known in ancient Carthage. For there are researchers who claim that the name ” Spaniel ” comes from the word ” span ” , meaning in the language of Carthaginian rabbit. According to other dog lovers name their dogs owes Spain , which supposedly originated. Still others , the name of the spaniels originate from the word ” Espana ” , which staroirlandzkim dialect means bushes , hedges . German cynologist Rudolf Lons is of the opinion that the name comes from the German ” spanen ” , which means that the dog remains in suspense at work. The fact is that since the seventh and eighth centuries , there were long-haired dogs in Spain , with hanging ears, used for hunting , probably brought there during the Crusades . These dogs then spread to France and England, where he appeared – according to the writings – in VIIIw . According to Beckman , none of the descriptions of found not characterized the pattern, or the appearance of these dogs. They had to be located on the Iberian Peninsula relatively short time, and then were exported or extinct.Spaniards define spaniels as ” perro inglese ” . in ” Lex BajuVariorum ” from the beginning of the eighth century can be found mention of the dogs used for hunting with falcons , and so płochaczach . Welsh Law 948 , the call of the dogs used in hunting spanielami . About spanielach mentions in his work the Livre de chasse Gaston de Foix (XIV century) and Chaucer in Wil of Bathes Prologue . In 1570 appeared the Latin book by Dr. Johannes Caius ( John Keys of Kays ) , the court physician to Queen Elizabeth, De Canibus Brittannicus , then translated into English and printed by Abraham Fleming in 1576 already widespread in the period divided by spaniels on water – running in water and land – working at the capture of the birds in the network, or used to hunt with falcons . This division gives rise to the subsequent emergence of distinct breeds of spaniels . Next spaniels used for hunting , existed in England since the thirteenth century dwarf variety spaniels , dogs, peace . It has given rise to two distinct breeds of spaniels . Classification spaniels , initiated by Caius , determined ultimately by the end of the sixteenth century and so , in addition to working spaniels water (water spaniels ) , spaniels land divided into higher education, the purpose of which was to drive out birds during hunting with falcons , and lower , which warowały before the birds caught in the net. Lower growth will make it easier to overlap them with the birds. Due to the nature of the work of these two varieties of Spaniels , the first given name springer spaniel or a starter , the other – sitting spaniel , and in later years cocking , woodcock , and finally – a cocker spaniel . In the seventeenth century, after the introduction of firearms for hunting , hunting rules have changed . Spaniels started to be used differently than in the past – had to rouse both animals and fetch . This started a breeding setters , which began in … just spaniels . And among the latter still traditionally divided on terrestrial and aquatic , terrestrial less distinguished – cocker spaniels , medium, and also heavier – Clumber spaniels and more – springer spaniels , Welsh spaniels , Sussex spaniels and Norfolk spaniels . Next to them are still grown dwarf spaniels , of various shades , as the dogs room . In time, however, more and more closely to formulate requirements for appearance, the anatomy , growth , weight, and ointments led to the patterns of several distinct breeds of spaniels , adopted by Kenel Club in England, and then – the International Federation and canine organizations in various countries.




he investigation Irish Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier is a little mysterious, though , that the breed dates back over 200 years. The former Ireland emphasis on oral transmission so the story of race is not well documented. What is certain is that the breed was initiated by Irish farmers and poor farmers . The first mention of the long-haired Terrier with soft hairs appear in the vicinity of Cork and Widclow and a small part of northern Ireland. Dogs were primarily designed to work on farms – the difficult living conditions require them strength, intelligence , of sufficient magnitude to induce authority could not be too large to maintain them as cheap as it was possible . Irish Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier was therefore shepherd flocks of sheep , the guardian of the family, also patrolled around small farms and warned against unwanted guests. Was used as a working dog on the track prey pulled from the water and burrows . Older Irish wheaten terriers describe as dogs to everything.


In short it is a strong , medium sized dog tags of great intelligence, quickness , agility and versatility. History of the Irish Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier turns out to be closely linked with two other Irish terrier breeds – Irish Terrier Kerry Blue Terrier and . Irish Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier seems to have a great impact on the race. Irish Terriers for the first time were shown at an exhibition in Dublin in 1870, as a separate breed . By 1880 , there were no established standard for the Irish Terrier . At this time, the name shown in Irish Terrier dogs of the same size but with a different hair and ointments . Irish Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers were often seen today terrierami Irish . At the same ring were shown dogs of various shades ( silver, gray , blue, and wheat ) It is interesting that the Kerry Blue is still shown are nietrymowane in Ireland where people call them the Irish Blue Terrier. Irish Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier is not aroused interest as soon as his two cousins . While the Kerry Blue has reached its greatest popularity numbers purebred Softa drastically decreased. A turning point for the race was Terrier Field Trial in 1932 where the Irish Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers came out sensational . Patrick Blake – a great lover of the breed Kerry Blue was impressed with charm and efficiency softów and began efforts to save the race from extinction. He persuaded his friend GJ Pierce to found a club race and sponsorship it until it is approved by the Irish Kennel Club. Good qualities of the breed tended toward each successive lovers softów and race began to grow again . Was approved by the Irish Kennel Club in 1937 and was first presented at the exhibition in Dublin. The only controversy at the time was that the race has not yet had its official name. The first proposal was a name : Irish Wheaten Terrier, but it met with opposition from the Irish Terrier breeders and Gleenm of IMAL Terrier . Both of these races included in your standard wheat color as acceptable . At this time, the Irish Terrier standard no longer contains wheat color , but this color is still present in the standard Glen of IMAL Terrier . So the Irish Terrier and Terrier Glen of IMAL have a rough coat and name of the Irish Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier was the best compromise on a new name.


Irish Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier gained particular popularity in the United States, where it continues today. The first breeding pair to the U.S. brought Mrs. Lydia Vogel in 1947. However, only two representatives of the breed could cause softów by the AKC registration . 10 years later, the family dog O’Connor imported from Mrs. Mauren Holmes – very popular breeder softów in Europe. Later, with the help of Mrs. Holmes brought jeszce several members of the race and eventually led to the registration of the breed in the AKC . Day 16 March 1962 year is a great day for the Irish dogs. It was created when the Irish Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier Club of America . At that time, about 30 were registered in the United States softów . In 1968 , however, there were already more than 250 AKC was good ISCWT group terriers 13 March 1973 year. Popuarność race continued to increase . In the early 90 ‘ race has become the most popular breed of terrier 7 in the USA. At this time, only in the United States each year are recorded puppies about 2000 per year. Outside the U.S., the Irish Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier earned so much popularity even in Scandinavia. At the largest exhibitions in Sweden often presents more than 100 Irish Soft Coated Wheaten terrier and we must remember that there is a quarantine there which precludes participation in exhibitions of many representatives of the breed of the countries covered by the quarantine .


Irish Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier is a very tenacious , strong dog , full of temperament , hair soft , slightly wavy , sometimes curly. Height at the withers – the dog : 46-48 inches, females slightly less . Wheaten homeland is Ireland . He is considered one of the oldest on the island. Officially recognized by the FCI only in the thirties , from now enjoys a growing popularity – mainly in the U.S. and Scandinavia. So far in Poland rather little-known race . Most wheatenów came from our southern neighbors. At this time in our country lives about ten representatives of the breed .The nature of wheaten Irish Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier dog is brave , hardworking, very susceptible to training . Properly run does not cause any trouble in dealing with other dogs. Very lively and energetic – simply perfect for active people. What for some is an advantage for others it can be a disadvantage . If someone expects will wheaten hours lounging on the couch and settle for a five-minute walk away – they better think of another breed. Wheaten Terrier is a flesh and blood – saying in two words – a real energy bomb 🙂 Irish Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier in the past was used among other things as a dog for hunting . Do not forget this and already in the youngest age to correct his inclinations in this direction in the future as an adult dog does not chase anything that moves .

History of Swiss white shepherd dog tags is closely linked with German Shepherds , to the 30’s of the twentieth century it was one race . The ancestors of German Shepherd dogs were used in the Middle Ages to guard and defend their possessions , which underwent numerous modifications . After the great European wars of the seventeenth century began to develop Cattle and sheep are no longer needed big dogs – expensive to maintain . The preference while different types of schools, differing in construction, hair – depending on the services for which they were used – generally called Shepherds . Shepherds of Thuringia and Saxony were small , disasters, wolf – gray color , with small , erect ears , of Württemberg and other southern lands were characterized by a thick bone on the other hand , capacious chest , strong hindquarters , moving fluid trot , to have pendulous ears and more phlegmatic temperament . Mostly white or patchy growth of 50-60 cm. The nineteenth century due to the reduction of pastures and sheep at the expense of intensive cultivation of land , brought a decline in the number of shepherds , the utility began to be used for other work than herding flocks . At the end of the century , by crossing different varieties of Shepherd , was made dog coat with abundant undercoat , suitable for each service.

Dogs already took care of the kennel club Phylax , founded in Berlin in 1891, worked for 8 years. 3 April 1899 . Captain Max von Stephanitz and Arthur Mayer , hosting nationwide breeding exhibition in Karlsruhe, impressed by the dog strong , resilient and wise named Hector Linksrhein . The exhibition formed an association called the abbreviated SV ( Schaeferhundeverein ) . Captain bought a dog to his kennel Grafrath , changing his name to Horand and registered it as No. 1 in a herd book German Shepherd . As a curiosity, given that in Hanover in 1882 and 1887 was exhibited white Greif , and then 1888 . Hamburg White bitch Greif and 1889 Kassei white Greif II Baron von Knigge culture . Dog Greiff II , born in 1877 , was bought by Friedrich Sparwasser , a breeder from Frankfurt and from LOTTE bitch , bitch gave LENE ( do not know what ointment was ) that it was covered with Kastor (after Pollux’sie ) was born of the abovementioned famous Hector / actually nearly 1 January 1895 . So grandfather and ancestor of the German Shepherd is a white GREIF … Brother Horand – LUCHS from another litter (which also contributed to the creation of the breed ) passed to his descendants white ointment . The white coat , as well as different length robe was at the beginning of the breeding of pure-bred widespread as the ” ointment may not affect the usefulness of utility dog.” Max von Stephanitz Frederick Emil put my attention to the flawless nature of the dog and its suitability for the job, and aesthetic considerations were going by the wayside . Not only Germany , but also Switzerland early interest in German shepherd and 1897 in Basel R. Lottner , founded Habsburg club Shepherd . Great interest has resulted in the foundation of a German shepherd Swiss Shepherd Dog Club , abbreviated SC Similar association was founded in the USA , in 1913, Anne Tracy founded the German Shepherd Dog Club of America . While in Germany, she met white dogs of this breed from the culture of the Habsburg Hohenzollern , had a big impression on her and decided to devote himself to their culture . Bred many white and multi-colored dogs , from the best German lines . To the popularity of the German Shepherd in the U.S. contributed to imported dogs from a German kennel ” Giralda Farm Kennel .


German Shepherd interest grew from year to year , but the color white became less welcome. It is strange , because the white shepherd existed long before the breeding of pure-bred German Shepherd . Biel is an ancient ointment herding dog , white dog less afraid of sheep , but about dusk, when the wolves attacked the flock was easier to distinguish, more visible . Under pressure from farmers and ” superstition ” was black and white for the ugly , white color lovers lost the dispute , and the consequent disqualification at shows , led to the cancellation of the white color of the pattern of a German Shepherd , which also surrendered to Switzerland , in 1968 . German Shepherd Dog tags Club of America . Lovers in the U.S. is not accused of breeding and formed clubs fans , and released their pattern is identical to the standard German Shepherd FCI . Only in Canada, the Canadian Kennel Club ( CKC ) continues to recognize the color white . In Canada and the U.S. in the pedigrees still get the German Shepherd breed white color shown on the club shows . In the early 70’s were imported from the United States this dog to Switzerland , male LOBO , born March 5, 1966 all year so before closing the books for the white color is considered to be the progenitor of the white shepherd dog breeding in the country. Descendants Lobo systematically recorded in the Swiss Stud Book ( LOS ) and other white shepherd dogs imported successively from the United and Canada. In 1984, the family of the Canton of your Epprecht wandered a white bitch , fell in love with this wee pup , but after 3 years of female left. They wanted again such a wonderful dog and brought from Holland 9 weekly bitch : Mire van Eekeren . For a long time the white shepherds were cultured without maintaining a uniform exterior . Only just Epprechtów family decided to set up the club, whose purpose would be breeding white shepherds in one type , the organization was named : White Swiss Shepherd Society , and in 1989 entered into the commercial register , and in 1991 it was considered as a breed club of the Swiss Society Kennel Club .. White Shepherd Association has developed a temporary pattern that 01.06.1991 was approved by SKG , and the goal of both organizations became the recognition as an independent white shepherd dog breed on an international scale.

In 1997, the FCI (International Canine Federation) recognized these shepherds as a separate race under the name WHITE SHEPHERD American-Canadian, but the register was entered before January 1, 2003 under the number 347 and was given its official name: WHITE SWISS SHEPHERD. From that moment, they may be exposed to exhibitions of dogs in all Member States and associated with the FCI.   Both the long-haired variety and short-haired occurs on one ring, both equally are accepted. Currently, White Swiss Shepherd increasingly diverges from its predecessor German Shepherd, through the years of selection in Canada is different in terms of character and physique.

In terms of health sheepdogs white Swiss should be treated the same with meticulous care and German Shepherds . Both races are exposed to dysplasia (like all large breeds ) and even with barefoot is not covered by the compulsory tests in this direction , it should be overexpose and accordingly also in this respect (not just the exterior ) copies selected for further breeding . The first year of life Shepherd is particularly important , should be given calcium preparations and strengthening joints (even if we feed only dry feed ) , the more attention and effort be devoted to this period , the greater the chance that the puppy will grow into a strong and well-built dog. As the spigot is not yet fully recognized breed ( they have no right to obtain title CACIB or application for International Champion can obtain championships and individual states to full rights ) should also pay attention to the breeding of the nature . White boys should especially during adolescence attend dressage to get to know other dogs , new situations , and vice versa – by owner to get to know your pet and know how to behave in the environment. Shepherd , both szwajcary and German can be timid and should be from a puppy to devote much attention to their socialization ( if you live in the country – ride with them to the city and vice versa) , not selected for further breeding individuals fearful and aggressive .

Hokkaido ( dog ) October 31, 2013 at 8:13 pm

Hokkaido dog

The history of the breed comes from medium-sized dogs ( such as the original Akita ) that accompanied immigrants from the island Honsyu ( the main island of Japan ) on the island of Hokkaido in the Kamakura period (about 1140 years ) , when it was administrative resettlement between Hokkaido and the Tohoku region . When in 1937 race as a ” natural monument “, was given its name derived from the region. Although really, their exact origin is unknown. It is known that came to Japan more than 3000 years ago with the Ainami . Since then, these dogs have adapted to local conditions , but it has not changed much over the centuries . Today it is recognized that it is the oldest separated , the Japanese race . Before , however, was given its new name , the dogs in this type were known just as ” Ainu – Ken ,” because they used their Ainowie – the original inhabitants of the island of Hokkaido, who bred them for hunting bears and other large game . To date, this name is quite strongly supported by the Far East. The impact on the appearance of Hokkaido were the physical conditions of the island , with long winters and heavy snow . These dogs are showing great resilience and resistance to adverse weather conditions . Hokkaido belong to one of the six national races of Japan, and the list of breeds in the group V – ” Spitz and primitive ” in the fifth – ” Asian Spitz ” . Name of the FCI standard – sounds Hokkaido , but in circulation breeders in Europe and the world can you find a name : Ainu , Ainu Ken , Ainu Inu , Hokkaido – ken , Hokkaido Inu , Hokkaido Ken , and respectively Ainów dog , Hund Ainu , Ainu Dog Hund Hokkaido , Hokkaido Dog . Japanese breeders recommend against the model name of Ainu .


Japan’s race is still playing, after the war was only a few pieces. They have been extirpated – war turmoil , overuse and largely just eaten. Ainu is the pride and joy of local farmers , as one of the few ichniejszych races which still retains its original features hunting . In Akita and Shib has long abandoned attempts to work , believing that most of the dog tags of these breeds has lost largely in its original instinct. However, there are still trained Hokkaido , used for hunting , but about fitness race indicate not only the exhibition notes that health and scores for numerous attempts to work – the bears . They are not , of course, fatal attempts of the animals , because the animals are in cages or at a distance from the dogs. It is estimated Hokkaido types of behavior , their reactions scent , hunting instinct , herding ability , willingness to work and cooperate together. ( Japanese dogs always worked in pairs – one whipper-in (usually male) and one attacker by surprise (usually female) . Hokkaido under natural conditions , even today, knows how to fix the one action of the jaws and kill eg an adult deer. In Japan, it is therefore currently about 14 breeding Hokkaido , of which only a few allow the export of the breed to other countries – so strong is the desire to leave the race in its original purpose. Dogs of the top line fighter with excellent charakerze , and reliable  nose – can cost up to $ 6,000 . There are also special breeders – veterinarians – dog geneticists , genealogists and supporters – to protect the Japanese breeds . These compounds are not necessarily cooperate with the FCI , but they do disproportionately more for the breed . The most important of these organizations are: Nippon Kennel Club ( Hokkaido – Ken Natural Association) , The Corporate Society for the Conservation of the Hokkaido Dog Natural Monument and the Hokkaido – Inu Association.

Ainu is perhaps small , but well- built , muscular dog – sometimes even scary -looking 😉 . It’s a dog impulsive , quick, with very light running. Hokkaido are characterized by a small erect , fleshy ears that are slanted towards the nose . The eyes are rather small , be dark brown , have the shape of a triangle. Teeth should be strong , strong, healthy , lifts . Some dogs may have dark spots on languages or bluish – black accretions – it’s terrible . Such stains are acceptable , the result of an old dog Ainów relationship with chow- chowami and shar- peiami . The nose must be dark , a line of muzzle straight , and dark pigmentation of the lips . The tail , as in all ” Japanese people ” must be tightly twisted. Hind legs should be strong , muscular , often discontinued are back and widely known . militant safe position ;-)) . Front feet straight run , may be slightly since siebne . The cage should be deep and wide head . But beware – these peaks develop fully until about 3 years old. In the past , youth – they can be so slightly different levels of development of individual dogs. Hokkaido to the outer coat and thick downy undercoat that protects them from the cold . As for the coat – it’s dominated by white, sesame and black and tan . But Hokkaido can also be red , brindle , gray or brown. The last three , but in Europe are rather inaccessible.
