Popular Dog Breeds By David Beart

There are more than 100 different recognized dog breeds, some of which are more popular than others. Classification of these breeds varies in different countries, although broadly speaking most accept broad categories that include sporting breeds, hounds, working and non-working breeds, terrier breeds and toy dogs. Sporting breeds include Pointers, Retrievers, Setters and Spaniels, all of which are popular breeds that are sometimes called gundogs, because they are trained to find and flush out game birds hunted by man. Pointers are thought to have originated from Spain where they were bred for helping with the hunting of game birds. They literally gallop, and have an excellent sense of both sight and smell. They are well-built dogs with a high head-carriage and long, muscular neck. English, Irish and lesser-known Gordon Setters have a similar build to Pointers, but their heads are longer, with a finer skull, and their heavy coat is long. Both Golden and Labrador Retrievers are large, active dogs with large, but soft mouths and a good nose for finding game. Unlike Pointers and Setters, the Retriever will stay with its master until the bird has been shot, or until they are given the command to fetch the dead or wounded bird. Cocker Spaniels were originally bred in Britain for flushing woodcock, a game bird similar to the snipe. Nowadays they are bred mainly as family pets and for showing. Popular hound breeds that use scent for hunting include Bloodhounds, Bassett Hounds, Foxhounds and Beagles. Those that rely on their sight for hunting include Greyhounds, Afghans, Borzois, and amazingly Dachshunds (or sausage dogs) that were originally bred in Germany as badger dogs that would go down holes after their prey. Dogs are, by nature, hunters, and so it isn�t surprising that man has, over time, developed this instinct. Most scent hounds originated thousands of years ago. For example, the Basset Hound was used in 16th century France to hunt badgers, wolves and other small animals. It is an odd-looking breed, with a long body and short, sturdy legs, as well as long, droopy ears and a soulful expression. It also makes a loving, although notoriously difficult to train, house pet. The Beagle has also been used for hunting for thousands of years, particularly in Britain. Smaller than the Bassett, but bigger than Fox Terriers and long-legged Jack Russells, Beagles are active hounds that make wonderful companion pets.

Foxhounds usually hunt with people on horseback rather than on foot, even today with drag-hunting, where they hunt a smelly bag rather than live foxes. Since hunting with the hounds is believed to date to the Middle Ages, when horsemen in Britain and Europe hunted on horseback for food, foxhounds have clearly been around for a very long time. But bloodhounds are said to be the oldest of the scent hounds, and they have, of course gained fame for tracking down human criminals. The so-called sight hounds were originally bred for speed. Today the Afghan Hound is a popular show dog although it is still used as a guard dog and for hunting deer and wolves in its native Afghanistan. The elegant Borzoi, or Russian Wolfhound, is one of the quickest dogs on foot. This breed was originally kept in packs by Russian nobles that used to hunt wolves. It has also become a popular show dog in various parts of the world including the USA and Britain. The oldest of all the sight hounds is the Greyhound, used in Ancient Egypt to run down gazelles (a type of antelope). Greyhound racing has become big business in some countries. Popular working breeds include St. Bernards, Boxers, Huskies and Collies, while popular non-working dogs include Bulldogs, Dalmations and Poodles. When we talk about a �working breed� we mean a dog that did or does a very specific job of work, for example herding sheep (like Collies) or guarding properties or people (like German Shepherds and Dobermann Pinchers). Draught dogs (like Huskies) and guide dogs (like Labradors) are also categorized as working breeds. There are several popular Terrier breeds including Jack Russell Terriers, Fox Terriers and Scottish Terriers. Hardy dogs originally bred to get rid of foxes, badgers, lynxes and so on, they are all quite small, sturdy dogs. Incredibly active, they make amazing, loyal pets. Toy dogs are, of course the smallest of all, and two particularly popular breeds are the Pekingese and Chihuahua. The odd-looking Pekingese is a firm favorite and a particularly pampered creature in many countries. It originated in China in about the 8th century, making it one of the world�s oldest breeds. The Chihuahua is the smallest dog in the world, and it originated in Mexico. Whichever dog breed you choose, remember that the dog, unlike the cat, is happier if it does what its owner wants. This means that dogs are happier if trained to be obedient. If you train your dog well and care for it, you will be rewarded with amazing love and companionship. After all, it is true that the dog is man�s best friend. David Beart is the owner of the http://www.petyak.com .

Picking the Right Dog Breed By Dog Lovers Source

There are several hundred dog breeds for you to choose from, so how do you choose? How can you manage to pick with dog breed is perfect for you and your family? You can start by narrowing down your choices by using our suggestions outlined below. First, how much available space do you have for your dog? Do you live in an apartment? If so, you should rule out the larger dog breeds. Look for smaller dog breeds such as Terriers or maybe a Miniature Schnauzer. Children are another consideration. Small dog breeds such as Chihuahuas are very small and delicate and can easily be hurt by young children. But in the same turn you don�t want a large breed dog that will end up knocking over your child and bumping into him. If this is the case, a medium dog breed would be your best option such as a Fox Terrier, Lhasa Apso or maybe even a Labrador. Next how much exercise will your dog be able to receive? Do you have a fenced in yard that will allow your dog to get his own exercise? Some dog breeds require more exercise then others while other breeds are mild and calm and don�t require much to be happy and healthy. And we can�t forget your dog's grooming needs. There are some breeds that only require a half hour of grooming per week, while other breeds need grooming daily. If you don't have the want or the time to spend grooming a dog daily, steer clear of breeds such as the Maltese. While Boston Terriers make a good choice with little grooming needs. When you narrow down which dog breed you think will make a good fit for you and your family age is the next concern. Do you want a puppy or do you want a dog that is a couple years old and past the training stage but still young? The options are endless there are literally hundreds of different dog breeds of all different sizes, ages, colors and temperament. Take the time to do a little research so you know what you will be getting yourself into with your new loveable pet. The Dog Lovers Source has dog breeds and dog health� information.
