Post Hunting For The Right Hound
Hunting For The Right Hound
by: Bruce Samuels

They are man's best friend, as they say cute and cuddly, intelligent and witty, lean and furry. We train them to make our lives easier. There are so many different breeds out there. The key is choosing the right breed for the right owner.

Hunting the right hound

Trained to be the guardians of livestock and property are, police dogs, sled dogs and rescue dogs, these working dogs come in all shapes and sizes, from the Standard Schnauzer to the Great Dane. Go-getting is the word most often used to describe terriers. This is the list of dog Herding Breeds according to The American Kennel Club; Australian Cattle Dog, Australian Shepherd, Bearded Collie, Beauceron, Belgian Malinois, Belgian Sheepdog, Belgian Tervuren, Border Collie, Bouvier des Flandres Briard, Canaan Dog, Cardigan Welsh Corgi, Collie, German Shepherd Dog, Old, English Sheepdog, Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Polish Lowland Sheepdog, Puli, Shetland Sheepdog, Swedish Vallhund. Some dog breeds under this group include THE American Sporting dog breeds; Eskimo Dog, Bichon Frise, Boston Terrier, Bulldog, Chinese Shar-Pei, Chow Chow, Dalmatian, Finnish Spitz, French, Bulldog, Keeshond, Lhasa Apso, Lowchen, Poodle, Schipperke, Shiba Inu, Tibetan Spaniel, Tibetan Terrier. Without the right training and socialization, and in irresponsible hands, these Sporting Breeds can be dangerous dogs. Motivated by rising inner-city crime rates and by the rather twisted notion that owning a powerful dog somehow enhances one's social standing, all too many people have invested a lot of money in acquiring one of these dogs, but sometimes nothing can convince some of these dogs that not all strangers, especially children, pose a threat. Without the right training, some working dogs can be difficult to handle, even dangerous. A pampered, yet surprisingly active companion today, was at cone time a skilled truffle hunter. Mixed breeds, random breeds, mongrels, mutts or curs; Call them what you will, they make up the majority of the worldwide dog population. For the most part, these are large, powerful dogs. With its name origins from the Latin terra, meaning "for earth", most terriers were originally bred to "go into the ground" burrowing after vermin, larger rodents and even foxes. Known as the “Kid-Friendly Dog Breeds” Golden Retrievers and Labrador Retrievers are among the most popular breeds in America. Their individual skills, original purposes and temperaments are almost as varied as their origins..

The Anatomy of a Canine

The Spiked Ears; Among the most common varieties are the erect or pricked ears sported by many of the more wolf-like breeds, such as German shepherd and basenjis, and by semi-domestic dogs, such as dingoes and New Guinea singing dogs. Most hound dogs feature hanging or pendant ears, while many terriers have semi-erect button ears in which the tips fold over and hang in a V-shape, partially covering the opening. The Dog’s Tongue; When the animals become significantly warmer, either through a change in air temperature or through physical exertion, dogs will secrete even more fluid than usual. When overheated, dogs will drool over everything. The Nose; Dogs usually are used to track the smell of something, in case this something gets lost, so you might take a peek of how they use their olfactory nerves and even their taste buds as well Smell and Taste. Dog’s Paws; All dog paws are the same, although there are variations in shape depending on the breed's digital bones. They all have a large common pad in the center of their paws. This fleshy pad on the bottom of a dog’s foot acts as shock absorbers. Dog Fur; Consider its body parts too Consider the most noticeable dog feature first- the hair. The wire-haired coat of the dachshund features a higher quantity and density of the harsh primary hairs in a dog's coat.
