Who did not have fear (or at least a little apprehension), at the sight of a huge and evil sentry dog in the yard of someone's private house?
Some of us also own the bestfriend of the person. And different people prefer to start different breeds of dogs, giving preferences to this or that breed, being guided by a choice by their criteria.
And only in the second half of the XIX century. purebred breeding of dogs was observed. This is evidenced by the records that began to be kept, and the fact that various dog organizations began to appear in which these records were kept.
In addition, at this time the first breed standards (descriptions of features) for different breeds were determined and the first dog shows were started.
There are several signs that distinguish dogs. Dogs are:
There is also a more specific division. Here are some breeds of dogs:
- for hunting;
- for protection;
- for guard;
- rare breeds;
- expensive breeds;
- clever breeds.
But it is important even not so much what are the rocksdogs, and how much that each of them requires a certain, suitable only for her care. And what is suitable for one breed is not at all suitable for another.
So if you decide to choose a dog for yourselfor, perhaps, as a gift to someone from your relatives or friends, carefully think about what kind of breed will be the most suitable option. And in order to make a choice more competently, take a few tips on yourself.
First, when choosing a dog, remember that no less thanit is also important for the dog what conditions for life you can give it. For example, if you live in a one-room apartment, then it is not recommended to have an Irish wolfhound or a Moscow watchdog in it. It is very large for a dog's apartment. Also, you should not put a dachshund or Pekingese in a booth to protect a private house. These breeds of dogs are small, and there will be no sense from such protection. Think about what kind of lifestyle you lead, where you live and where the dog will live, what you are going to do with it and for what purposes it will serve you. With a choice, be guided by this.
Second, assess your physical abilities andthe size of the dog. A fragile girl will experience many difficulties with a huge and heavy dog. Especially at that time, while the puppy does not know where to spend an excess of energy, and is torn in all directions. A strong man, such a dog will be able to, and a miniature dog is not very suitable.
Another important point is the temperamentdogs. Try to choose a pet so that its character suits yours. This will bring harmony and understanding into the relationship with the dog. Probably, and you have often noticed that often a dog and its owner are somewhat similar in character and even similar in appearance.
Summarizing the article, it should be noted that afterthe way you have learned and figured out what kind of dog breeds are, the choice will be much easier. With a good scenario, by doing the so-called "drop-off", you will have 3-5 choices that suit you. And it's much easier to choose from them than from a hundred.
The main thing is to approach the choice with the mind, and treat the animal with love.</ p>
