HOUND GROUP
HOUND GROUP
(22+ breeds)


The other hound dogs under this group are Basset Bleu De Gascogne, Basset Fauve De Bretagne , Basset Griffon Vendeen (Grand), Basset Griffon Vendeen (Petit) Cirneco Dell'Etna, Grand Bleu De Gascogne, Hamiltonstovare, Ibizan Hound, Norwegian Elkhound, Otterhound, Segugio Italiano, Sloughi, Portuguese Podengo (Warren Hound).

All of the dogs listed below belong to the collection of dogs referred to as Hound Dogs. As implied by its name Hound Dogs have been bred to chase (or hound) a quarry by sight or smell, or a combination of both senses. Sighthounds have exceptional eyesight, combined with the speed and stamina necessary to catch the intended prey once seen, typical examples being the Greyhound and the Whippet. Hounds which rely strongly on the sense of smell to follow the trail of a prey, such as the Bloodhound, quite literally follow their noses, speed and eyesight is of less importance.

HOUND GROUP

Characteristics and features have been introduced and strengthened by breeding from animals who already demonstrated the desired traits. Breeding for appearance was only introduced in the 19th Century. Before this time dogs and puppies were bred to increase useful abilities and traits helpful for the duties they were intended for. Thus, the various hound breeds were initially introduced to help man according to specific requirements such as:

Hunting and running down small quarry
Flushing out and Driving game
Vermin Hunting
Guard duties
Tracking




In this day and age only a few hounds still undertake these tasks, but nevertheless, they still harbour the skills and characteristics that made the original Whippet dog breeding program successful. The Hound Breed Group of dogs differ in that some hunt by scent and others by sight. Many hounds are kept in packs, in outdoor kennels. Any dogs and puppies belonging to the Hound breeds require a significant amount of exercise as they have high stamina levels suitable for hunting quarry. There are some breeds in this group who make a distinctive baying sound invaluable information should be considering puppies.

Even if you ain't nothing but a hound dog, good news: Hound dog owners are emotionally stable.

WORKING DOGS GROUP
(22+ breeds)


These dogs were bred to help man in various endeavors like protecting people, transportation of goods, pulling carts, search and rescue operations, etc. The variety of dogs that come under this group are large and powerful. These dogs are intelligent and their personalities match the physical hardiness.



All of the dogs listed below belong to the collection of dogs referred to as Working Dogs. Dogs in the Working group, were developed to perform a wide variety of tasks, such as herding, droving, pulling, hauling, herding, hunting, rescuing and guarding. The very nature of many of these tasks require a big, strong dog. These dogs have a long and close association with man and have provided invaluable help to their owners. The working dogs are generally large, intelligent, and protective of their masters. Working dogs have always been viewed as real assets to their owners and have worked with man replacing larger animals such as horses when none such animals were available. Advanced technology and machinery have negated some of the working requirements of these dogs but strength, courage and a fast reactions ensure that this partnership will continue long into the future.






Working Dog Breed Duties and Tasks
Characteristics and features of Working Dogs have been introduced and strengthened by breeding with animals who already demonstrated the desired traits. Breeding for appearance was only introduced in the 19th Century. Before this time dogs and puppies were bred to increase useful abilities and traits helpful for the duties they were intended for. Thus, the various Working breeds were introduced to help man according to his specific requirements such as:

Guarding premises

Herding or Droving various animals including cattle and reindeer

Pulling or hauling various vehicles such as carts and sleds

Hunting which could range from all kinds of smaller animals to big game including lions and tigers

Performing water and mountain rescues

In this day and age not every Rottweiler might be called to undertake these tasks, but nevertheless, they still harbour the skills and characteristics that made the breeding program successful. Many of the Working dogs group are still gainfully employed as:

Guard Dogs
Police dogs
Sled dogs
Rescue dogs

The working dogs are medium to giant size and are strong, often independent, domineering and difficult to manage. This, together with the immense sizes of many of the breeds, make many of the working dogs unsuitable as a normal family pet or first time dog owners. These dogs require firm control and must be properly trained. Formal obedience training should include a proper socialising program. Training need not be difficult as Working dog breeds are generally quick to learn and intelligent. Some of the working dog breeds are easier to handle such as the Newfoundland dog, the Portuguese Water Dog, the Samoyed and the Saint Bernard.

Anyone with a Great Dane as a roommate would have to be easygoing and clever to make things work without getting claustrophobic. Not surprisingly, working dog owners are agreeable and intelligent.

SPORTING GROUP
(26+ breeds)


All of the dogs listed below belong to the collection of dogs referred to as Sporting Dogs. Dogs in the Sporting group, which are referred to in England as Gundogs can be divided into three main categories - Retrievers, Pointers and Setters. These dogs were bred primarily to work with people to hunt game birds. Some of these dogs work in water whilst other dogs are more suited to work on land and many of the dogs in the Sporting dog category are comfortable and capable of working in either land or water environments. Sporting dogs (Gundogs) are particularly suited to wood and field activities.

The Retriever, Pointer and Setter dogs and their main functionalities are as follows:
The Retriever dog - Retriever dogs find and return killed game to the hunter. Some Retrievers are especially equipped, for instance with a water-repellent coat and webbed feet, for retrieving downed waterfowl.

The Pointer dog - Pointer dogs stand in front of their quarry, with their nose and body rigidly still , thus directing (or pointing) the hunter to its location.

The Setter dog - Setter dogs were originally trained to set, or crouch, in front of game preventing the escape of the quarry. The hunter would make the capture with a net.






Sporting Dogs (Gundogs) hunt by air scent, as opposed to ground scent used by the dogs categorised as being in the Hound category. Characteristics and features of Sporting Dogs (Gundogs) have been introduced and strengthened by breeding with animals who already demonstrated the desired traits. Breeding for appearance was only introduced in the 19th Century. Before this time dogs and puppies were bred to increase useful abilities and traits helpful for the duties they were intended for. Thus, the various Sporting breeds, or Gundogs were initially introduced to help man according to his specific requirements such as:

Hunting game birds
Hunting waterfowl

Retrieving game that had been shot and wounded

Pointing to game to allow the hunter to catch or shoot the quarry

Startling, or flushing, birds from their cover

It is said that Sporting Dogs (Gun dogs) are perhaps the most intelligent of the breeds, resulting in their wide variety of uses and their ease of training. These dogs like to be around people and are active and alert and require regular, invigorating exercise and lots of attention.

You and your pooch are happy watching a movie, taking a walk, and really just doing whatever the day dictates it doesn't get more agreeable than gun dog owners.

These dogs quite rightly fit into the old adage, "Looks are often deceptive".

All of the dogs listed below belong to the collection of dogs referred to as Toy Dogs. Dogs in the Toy Group were initially developed to ease the lifestyle and provide pleasure to rich people. These dogs were initially owned by the wealthy and were viewed by others as status symbols - a luxury item with little apparent purpose. Dogs in other groups had specific working roles and played a major part in providing food for the table and therefore justified the cost of their upkeep and care - these were the dogs which were commonly owned by the lower classes. Changes in the economy, lifestyles, living conditions and the environment brought the luxury and pleasure of owning a toy breed dog to everyone.







The Toy dogs are small, even diminutive in size. Toy dogs are generally easy care pets however some do not like young children and their fragility can be a concern in large families.

TERRIERS GROUP

These type of dogs have their group name 'Terrier', derived from a Latin word that means 'earth'. These small terrier dog breeds are sturdy and can dig the ground when hunting for vermin. They are feisty little creatures, full of energy and charming enough to bowl anyone over. The following list of types of dogs with pictures, of Terrier group, will give you a view of these bold dogs.
All of the dogs listed below belong to the collection of dogs referred to as Terrier Dogs. Dogs in the Terrier group were developed to hunt and kill vermin. The vermin included control rats, mice and other predatory animals such as foxes that might raided a farmer's produce and livestock. The very nature of these tasks require an energetic, tenacious, brave and determined dog . Terrier dogs have always been viewed as real assets by their owners and have worked with man for centuries.






Terrier Dog Breed Duties and Tasks
Characteristics and features of Terrier Dogs have been introduced and strengthened by breeding with animals who already demonstrated the desired traits. Breeding for appearance was only introduced in the 19th Century. Before this time dogs and puppies were bred to increase useful abilities and traits helpful for the duties they were intended for. The trait encouraged was the ability to dig up underground dens and burrows and go to ground whilst barking noisily to frighten out any inhabitants. Thus, the various Terrier breeds were introduced to help man according to his specific requirements such as:

Hunting vermin
H
unting larger animals such as foxes

Some terriers were also able to kill their quarry

In this day and age not every Terrier might be called to undertake these vermin related tasks, but nevertheless, they still harbour the skills and characteristics that made the original breeding program successful.



The Terrier dogs are small to medium size and are often described as fiery or feisty. The smallest terriers are ready to take on any opponents, a necessary attribute when hunting and killing vermin but not so good for a family pet! Some terriers are yappy and are known to nip boisterous children. They can also be quite independent and difficult to train. On the positive side Terriers can be friendly, stable and loyal pets.

Now don't take this the wrong way, but owners of terriers were shown to be how can we put this delicately rather low on the emotional stability scale. On the plus side, you've got a super-cute companion to help you through any funks.

HERDING GROUP
(18+ breeds)


The dogs under the herding group have assisted man, for over hundreds of centuries in taking care of his flocks and herds of animals. These dogs have in-built herding instinct. These dogs stalk, bark, push, nip at heels and help drive livestock into groups. They also help protect the livestock from predators. They learn quickly and obey commands.

General Information about Herding Dogs
All of the dogs listed below belong to the collection of dogs referred to as Herding Dogs. Dogs in the Herding Group ( sometimes referred to as the Pastoral Group ) were developed to perform a variety of tasks relating mainly to the herding of livestock. The types of livestock that these dogs are associated with are quite diverse and include sheep, cattle, reindeer and any other cloven footed animals. The Herding groups of dogs are eminently suited to these pastoral tasks as many of the breeds have a weatherproof double coat to protect them from the elements when working in severe weather conditions. Their natural abilities have been fully recognised and the initial livestock herding function have been extended to include police work and Search & Rescue amongst other duties.





Herding Dog Breed Duties and Tasks
Characteristics and features of Herding Dogs have been introduced and strengthened by breeding with animals who already demonstrated the desired traits. Breeding for appearance was only introduced in the 19th Century. Before this time dogs and puppies were bred to increase useful abilities and traits helpful for the duties they were intended for. Herding Group dogs share the amazing ability to control the movement of other animals. They also have great stamina reserves which allow them to work from dawn to dusk. The dogs are tenacious creatures who have the ability to herd animals such as cattle which are many times their size. They leap, run around frantically and nip at the heels of any animals that they are herding. Add this behaviour to aggressive barking and steely eye contact and their ability to influence much larger animals is fully understood.

Thus, the various Herding breeds, including the Australian Cattle Dog, were bred and introduced to help man according to his specific requirements such as:

Herding or Droving various animals including cattle and reindeer

Police work

Tracking

Providing a service to handicapped owners

Performing Search & Rescue

Acting as sentries and couriers for the Armed Forces


Information about Herding Dogs characteristics

The Herding dogs are medium to large in size. They are intelligent, active, courageous, and determined dogs who make excellent companions and respond well to firm training. Their instincts are very strong and given half a chance they will try to herd, or round up, the family. They enjoy work and look to their owners to provide tasks to enable them to meet their instincts and be rewarded accordingly.

HYBRIDS
MIXED BREEDS
(10+ breeds)


What separates a schnoodle or a goldendoodle from its purebred kin? After all, the Brussels Griffon, the Bullmastiff, and the Silky Terrier are just a few of the many breeds that were created by crossing various other breeds.

But whether a new type of dog becomes a recognized breed depends on time and trial and error. You can't just cross two breeds to create a new one. Selective breeding, choosing the dog with the traits you want and breeding them with each other over several generations is required to achieve a consistent size, appearance, and temperament.


They can still make you sneeze: All dogs shed, produce dander, have saliva, and urinate, and all of these are ways that allergens are spread. Individual dogs produce varying amounts of allergens, even within breeds. That's why some people with allergies find they can tolerate particular dogs; they've been fortunate enough to stumble upon one who doesn't produce high levels of allergens. But just because a dog is a product of a certain cross a Poodle and a Yorkshire Terrier, for instance is no guarantee he's allergen free.

No healthier than purebreds: It's often suggested that a cross of two breeds has hybrid vigor, which means the broader gene pool makes him healthier than a purebred dog.
That might be true for the first generation of a hybrid cross. But as successive generations of cockapoos and labradoodles are bred, the incidence of health problems are likely increase because there's a higher chance of carrying through a breed's genetic vulnerabilities, such as breathing difficulties, cancer, epilepsy, or hip dysplasia.









MISCELLANEOUS GROUP
(6+ breeds)


The dogs in these group are awaiting their turn to be eligible for full recognition, in any one of the AKC dog breed groups.

Dogs in the Miscellaneous Class Group of dogs are working toward full AKC (American Kennel Club) recognition. Breeds in the Miscellaneous Class may compete and earn titles in AKC Obedience, Tracking and Agility events. They are also eligible to compete in Junior Showmanship and at conformation shows but they are not eligible for championship points.




Dogs which are officially recognized for AKC registration appear in the Stud Book of the American Kennel Club. The AKC provides for a regular path of development for a new breed, which may result in that breed's full recognition and appearance in the official Stud Book. The requirement for admission to the Stud Book is clear and categorical proof that a substantial, sustained nationwide interest and activity in the breed exists. When the Board of Directors is satisfied that a breed is continuing a healthy, dynamic growth in the Miscellaneous Class, it may be admitted to registration in the Stud Book with the opportunity to compete in regular classes.

BLINDNESS IN DOGS SYMPTOMS - BLIND DOGS and PUPPIES
BLIND-RISK DOG BREEDS
This article is proudly presented by
WWW.DOGSAHOLIC.COM
and
Wyatt Robinson

Dogs do not rely on their sense of vision to the same extent as do humans. The dog's vision is also not as highly developed as it is in humans. Dogs also cannot focus well on near objects, are partially color blind, and have poor detail vision. Canine vision is superior to human vision for detecting moving objects in dim light. This vision suits their original need as nocturnal hunters. Since the majority of domesticated dogs no longer hunt to survive, blindness does not interfere with their domesticated primary function - being a companion and pet.

BLINDNESS IN DOGS SYMPTOMS - BLIND DOGS and PUPPIES

Some of the dog breeds that show a predisposition for this condition are Dachshunds, Miniature Schnauzers, Pugs, Brittany Spaniels and Maltese. Studies have shown that more than 60% of the dogs with this condition were female and that 46% of SARDS cases were diagnosed during the holidays in December and January. The cause of SARDS has been unknown and poorly understood, even now.

BLINDNESS IN DOGS SYMPTOMS - BLIND DOGS and PUPPIES

Dog breeds that are naturally inclined
to suffer from blindness:

Bassett Hound
Beagle
Bouvier des Flandres
Chihuahua
Chow Chow
Cocker Spaniel
Dachshund
Dalmatian
German Shepherd Dog
Great Dane
Malamute
Siberian Husky
Poodles (mini, toy, standard)
Shar-Pei
Shih Tzu
Siberian Husky
Spaniels (various breeds)
Terriers (various breeds)

When the cause of blindness is lens luxation, the breeds that are more prone to blindness are: Terriers, Spaniels, German Shepherd Dogs, Miniature Poodles, Toy Poodles and Chihuahuas.

When blindness is caused by retinal detachment, Shih Tzu is a dog breed that is more at risk.
