MAJOR DISEASES OF DOGS

The dog, like man, prone to many diseases. The greatest danger is posed by infectiousplague, rabies, hepatitis and parvovirus enteritis. It is from these diseases kill mostpuppies and young dogs before the age of 1 year. These diseases occur rapidly, with increasing complications and in most cases end in death.

The only effective way to combat infectious diseases is immunizations. Typically, vaccines do not give side effects and easy to carry the dog. Do not neglect the vaccination -prevention is always better than cure. Vaccination and good nutrition and propermaintenance of the dog strengthen the immune system. Treatment of infectious diseasescan not afford novice breeders, as it requires specialized knowledge and extensive experience. Every breeder should know the basic signs of infectious diseases and identify them. At the slightest suspicion of disease promptly contact your veterinarian.

Results of six-Union Exhibition 1930 (Part 2)

One of these centers became Leningrad.
In Leningrad before the war were Caucasian Shepherd is very small. Thus, in the Yearbook section of dog blood of the Leningrad City Association for the 1929 report of the XI Exhibition 1928 (27/29-10) judges PF Pupysheva describes six Caucasian shepherd dogs (4 males and 2 females), exhibited in the open and puppy classes. All the dogs of unknown origin. The owners of these dogs were military depot № 54 and "Utilkollektiv."
Dog before the war left no trace but the history of the breed. After World War II breeding Caucasian Shepherd began anew. Just as before the war, Caucasian Shepherd has continued to interest agencies that have used this breed to guard service.
In 1949, a great enthusiast of service dog, OD Koshkin was carried out the first post-war import Caucasian Shepherd Mr Leningrad.
In 1953, the NN Chernyshov brought to nursery paramilitary security companies Lensovnarhoza dogs from Georgia and Azerbaijan. Among these dogs were coming tribal vendors Gurdjieff, Thunder, Thunder, Tfan. All these dogs were of different types.
In Moscow, the All-Union Agricultural Exhibition in 1956 exposed males: long-haired sable gray Dato, a gray-speckled Vephiya, spotted Chaudhry and Ogre purchased kennel "Red Star", where he subsequently Vephiya widely used as a producer.
In May 1959 Lensovnarhoz carried out the most significant import of dogs from Azerbaijan, in the same year in Moscow at the All-Union Exhibition of Leningrad were purchased dogs from Georgia - Bar Reef and included in further breeding. The son of Rem Reef later became the All-Union Exhibition of Economic Achievements winner and champion.
In addition to these dogs were widely used Palace - black male, born in 1961, smuggled out of Georgia, Azerbaijan exported from Talat, the sons and Tfana Thunders - Gurdjieff and Gurzuf. Later in the breeding sons attended Palace - Abraham (vlad. Haas) and Augur-Alash (vlad. kennel Baltic Shipyard), obtained from the daughter of Gurdjieff Vistula.
Thus, in the 60s there was a group in Leningrad Caucasian Shepherd, relatively isolated from the rest of origin population of the country. The dogs of this group in the mass exterior somewhat inferior to the dogs of Moscow and Ivanovo breeding.
In 1964 at the age of one year in Leningrad from Yaroslavl brought Sultan (vlad. nursery Okhta Chemical Plant), which left a significant mark on the breeding of Leningrad. He was descended from the son of Chodra - Proud and Martha - Moscow manufacturers and was the grandson of maternal champion ENEA Abdullah's 1962-1963 K-II (vlad. "Red Star"), exported from the Caucasus. The sultan was large, with massive bone, slightly elongated, very harmonious and in proportion to the folded gray male piebald color. He had a massive, perfect lines and proportions of the head with the bulk, with no signs of damp face.
Direct successor of Sultan Reshad his son, who succeeded in his life a few owners. His mother was the winner Macaw, owned by the Institute of Krylov.
Reshad somewhat inferior to his father, Sultan. It was not as compact and harmonious, seemed more stretched due to long back. Its coloration is dominated by bright-red hue. Reshad has been repeatedly used in the breeding.

Results of six-Union Exhibition 1930(part 1 ).




For all German exhibition in Nuremberg showed Osoaviachim Russian breeds of dogs, among them three Caucasian Shepherd, two of which were rated "excellent".
In the 30 years of service dog is a full-fledged branch of the economy.  A true reflection of the time I was Vsegruzinskaya show dogs (Tiflis, May 1931), which along with other breeds of dog breeds on display 41 Caucasian Shepherd. All of them belonged to the departmental nurseries: convoy protection, police department, ZGPU etc.
Shortly before the outbreak of World War II in Tbilisi, an exhibition of dogs, sheep dogs which was attended by state and collective farms. This exhibition has become a unique showcase of the Caucasian Shepherd. Prize-winners of famous males were Caucasians, Jamal Topush and others. A large sable gray Topush is of particular admiration of spectators. Unfortunately, these exhibitions, close to the habitats of natural habitats Caucasian Shepherd is no longer made.
In autumn 1971, in Budapest at the World Dog Show was attended by representatives from over 50 countries in Europe, Asia and Africa. Submitted our country Caucasian Shepherd caused an increased interest: they were shown at the World Fair for the first time, three littermates: Uranium II, Grozny, and zurna (vlad. nursery Ministry of Public Utilities of the RSFSR, Moscow) won the highest marks, while Uranus and Zurna II granted the title " Winner of Hungary. "
The marked predominance of Caucasian Shepherd over other domestic breeds of dogs can be traced at the present time. Thus, the first All-Union Exhibition of domestic breeds of dogs in 1988 was billed 111 Caucasian Shepherd, 37 Southern Russia, Central Asian Shepherd Dogs 37 and 39 black terriers.
Departmental nurseries and clubs service dog drew attention to the breed because of its highly developed qualities of the guard. Even at home are Caucasian Shepherd patrol, taking it to the most convenient, elevated position from which you can better see the Predator or an outsider. It should be noted Caucasian sheepdog moving object, whether it's even a car, pack in silence shatters chain and rushes to him with all haste. Once a group of dogs run up to the stranger, some of them give it back, but only some individuals attack, dismissing the offender from the rest of protected areas. But if a stranger just set foot on the protected area, it has thrown all the dogs. This behavior of the Caucasian sheep-dogs, prompted by an innate instinct ...
Thanks to the advanced guard qualities Caucasian Shepherd were exported to various parts of our country. Formed a number of centers of breeding this breed. Often, new breeding centers located thousands of miles from areas of native habitat of species in different climatic zones.

Legends and myths about dogs.

Legends and myths about dogs.





   
Myths and legends about dogs found in many nations. The dog was never considered an ordinary animal, a man identified her special place in their beliefs, many legends and myths.
   
According to Greek mythology, the three-headed dog Cerberus, the neck is moving snake, guarded exit from the underworld of Hades that the souls of dead could not return to the society of the living. There, in the realm of Hades, on the banks of the sacred river Styx were carried out monstrous dog. They accompanied the retinue of the goddess Hecate (ancient attributed to her the dog barking, the dog's head, the dog's appearance), which moonless nights wandering the roads and near the graves. Hecate sends to the nightmares of sleeping people and heavy dreams. She was considered a helper in witchcraft. And to appease it, people brought her to the sacrifice of dogs.
   
In one of the ancient Greek myth tells us that Orpheus, Eurydice trying to return from the realm of the dead, cast a spell terrible Cerberus guards with their singing. In another - the prophetess Sibyl patron who fled from the destruction of Troy Aeneas and helped him to descend into the underworld of Hades, Cerberus abandoned the cake with the soporific herb. Probably nothing worldly formidable guard was not alien to, and common sop break all his strict principles.
   
According to legend the ancient Greek dogs rescued from the enemy city of Corinth. Fifty dogs guarded the citadel. One night, when the internal garrison slept, an enemy fleet sailed, and on the outskirts of the city began a battle with the dogs, loyal guards. Help people appeared in time when there was only one live dog, Soter. The enemy was defeated, and the citadel is saved, Soter also received an award for his bravery a silver collar with the inscription "Soter - the defender and savior of Corinth." In his honor, erected a marble monument.
   
Homer can read one of the most beautiful stories about the dog. When Odysseus disguised as a beggar returned to his home in Ithaca, and no one recognized, reached his house, his dog Argo was old and infirm. He was lying on a pile of manure, covered with ticks, maids they were not engaged, because everyone was convinced that Odysseus would never return. But the old blind Argo learned of his master, and having no strength to rise only slightly wagged his tail. Odyssey is a faithful moved to tears.

   
In Eastern countries there is a legend about the origin of the greyhound dog: "One day King Solomon, according to the command received from God, he ordered all the animals gather at the general congress, to which each of them could express their needs and desires, and instead listen to the mandate of the Creator, as is to each other. The call of the king came to the Congress all the animals except for a hedgehog. Angered by such disobedience to the king turned to him with the question - will not cause anyone to go to the search disobedient. found only two hunters, horse and dog. The horse said: " I'll get unruly, I pasture from his lair, but I'll be able to take it - it is too high, my growth, and also my nostrils are not protected from puncture rod of needles. "dog also said:" I'm not afraid of prickly needles, but my face is too fat, and I will not be able to push her into the lair of a hedgehog, if it be hidden there before I'll grab it. "On hearing this, the Prophet said:" Yes, you're right. But I do not want to disfigure the horse, reducing its growth, it would be a very poor reward for her diligence and obedience. Better as I will add beauty to a dog to reward her for expressing eagerness. "Having said this, the king took the animal's face with both hands and stroked until it until it became quite thin and pointed. Then everyone present saw that the dog has turned into a harmonious graceful greyhound. Both volunteers immediately set off in search of the king, and soon presented a stubborn animal. King Solomon was very pleased urchin severely punished, and the horse and dog expressed a special favor: "From now on you will be companions of man and the first after it in the face of God."
   
An excellent confirmation of the attachment to the dog the human race is novoassiriyskaya parable that can be called "a parable about true friendship." There was a man, he was a dog. The dog guarded the house and garden, but it's time, the dog has grown old, and then the man said to himself: "Why do I keep the dog if it is so old? I will go and drown her." He untied the boat, put it in the dog, which tied a stone around his neck, and swam to the middle of the river. When the boat sailed on rapids, a man stood up, picked up the dog and threw it into the water. But from a sharp jolt the boat swung, the man could not resist, fell into the river and began to sink. Loop with a stone slipped off a wet dog's neck, and it was free. Of all the forces rushed to rescue a dog person and dragged him to shore. The man was still alive and together with the dog returned home. He was thoughtful and caring for her while she was alive.
   
The origin of naked dogs shrouded in myths and legends. It is believed that numerous hairless breeds originated in Africa. They lived in Mexico, China, Turkey, Peru, Ethiopia, Argentina, the Caribbean and the Philippines. Naked Dogs - oldest known rocks on Earth, surviving intact. As a totem animal, hairless dog was the object of worship and is considered the most powerful embodiment of selfless love for man. According to one legend, the dog found in a forest lost a baby and trying to warm him, shook him with all his furry coat. When her parents found a dog rescued the child, they were so happy, that took her with him. Learning of this, God is good all decided to tie the dog to the people and made her naked. At the same time one of hairless dogs puppies are always born feather to the right time once again to help the person and share with him his coat.

Two sources DEVOTION.

Two sources DEVOTION( from the book of the ethologist Konrad Lorenz " Man finds a friend " ).


   
Anyone who has had to have more than one dog, you knowhow different are the dog personality. There is absolutely similar to the two dogs, and no two people are alike - even among twins. But,identifying the specific features of each of the humanthe nature and combining them into a category can be up to a certainextent explain the different temperaments, although similaranalysis of the infinite diversity of the studied materialnever reach the status of an exact science. Dogpersonality is much simpler and therefore much easier for usexplain the features of different nature, considering thedevelopment of certain "characterological" features and theircombination for a given individual.
Of course, I'm not going to spend in this book is a scientificstudy of character traits the domestic dog, butnevertheless try to show how the interactionsome innate behaviors, and in particulartwo of them, creates an extremely wide range of dogcharacters, at first glance, radically differenteach other. These two properties selected by me inprimarily determine the ratio of dog to its owner, andbecause they are of great interest to fansof dogs. of dogs. Devotion to the dog owner arises from twocompletely different sources. In many ways, she explainsthose ties that bind a wild dog with mother onlyin childhood, while the domestic dog remains at alllife and, together with a number of other factors contributes tothat some children's personality traits do not disappear, and whenanimal becomes an adult. Another root of devotionlaid down in the fidelity, which connects the series with a dogleader of the pack, or arises out of affection, fedindividual family members to each other. In dogs with a wolfthe blood that goes much deeper root than in the offspringjackal, and the obvious reason: the conservation of the pack ismuch greater role in the life of a wolf, jackal, than in life.
If you take the puppy home in non-domesticated representativedog family and raise him as a dog can be easilyimagine that the need for a wild baby in the care andcare that is equivalent to a lifelong relationship that existsbetween the majority of our pet dogs and their owners.Captive wolf is usually shy, prefers darkcorners and obviously afraid to cross the open space. Hehighly distrustful of strangers and, if suchpeople try to pet him, can violently and withoutWarning to grab a caressing hand. He has aBirth is very prone to bite from fear (in Germansuch animals are called "angstbayser"), but to the ownercub attaches itself and relies on it in the same waylike a puppy. If it is a female, which under normalDuring the event, growing up, begins to perceive the male leader-as the "host", experienced trainers can sometimes takeplace of the leader at a time when infantdependence of the female comes to naught, and sosecure her affection, and in the future. One OneViennese police managed to achieve this commitment byhis famous wolf Poldi. But the one who bringsmale wolf, waiting for the inevitable disappointment - as soon aswolf becomes an adult, he suddenly ceases to obeythe owner and kept in full independence. Its behavior onrelation to the former owner does not show any malice norSavage - he still treats him as a friend,but he was bigger and would never blindly obeyowner, and he may even try to subjugate itand become a leader. Given the power of wolf teeth is not necessarysurprising that this procedure sometimes takes quite abloody character.
The same thing happened with the dingo, which I took on the fifth dayhis life, put to the breast-feeding a dog and raised, notspare time and effort. This wild dog is not trying to subjugateI myself, or bite, but as an adult, she graduallyloss of former obedience, and it happened veryin a curious way. While my dingo was a puppy, its behaviordid not differ from that of an ordinary dog. When WhenI chastised him for some misdemeanor, he expressed hisremorse for the usual canine manner, that is trying toto appease the angry expressions of submission and the hostpleas, and calmed down, only when jolly,signifying forgiveness. However, when he was eighteenyears, his behavior changed dramatically - it is stillwithout resistance, took the punishment, even beaten, but barelyall ended, as he was shaken with a friendly wagging metail and ran away, inviting me to chase him. In otherwords, the penalty had no effect on his mood andproduced on him the slightest action, up to and includingthat he could immediately repeat the offense for which onlyhave suffered a fair punishment, for example, again encroach onthe life of one of the most valuable of my ducks. In the same age, helost all desire to accompany me during walksand just ran away, where he wanted, without paying any attentionon my team. Nevertheless, I must emphasize thatenjoyed the warmest of his position, and when wenot met, he greeted me with the utmostcanine ceremony. Do not expect that a wild animalwill deal with a person other than with individuals of theirthe species. We shall return to this issue when weexamine the relationship between humans and cats. My dingo,absolutely no doubt entertained me the most ardent feelings,but humility and obedience here just to do with it.
Domesticated dogs, jackals dominatedblood, all his life remain the same depending on theirhost, in which the young are the wild dogs ofof adults. of adults. And this is not the only child trait inUnlike wild dogs they keep for life.Short hair, a tail ring and pendant ears, typicalmany species, and most importantly, short muzzle and convexitythe skull, which we have already seen in peat dogs (Canisfamiliaris palustris), - these features are characteristic of wildforms only a young animal, but the domestic dogretained throughout her life.
Like most of the character traits,infantilism may be advantages and disadvantages -it all depends on the degree. Dogs, completely devoid of it, thoughand interesting for its independence, the owner is not particularly happydeliver, as they incorrigible rogue and only timeoccasionally condescend to visit the home of its owner(The word "owner" here obviously does not apply). With age, suchDogs often become dangerous, as devoid oftypical dog obedience, they may bite or knockwith human legs, as if another dog. However, condemning spiritvagrancy and the concomitant lack of loyaltythe owner or the place, I should add that the excess of youthdependence can, oddly enough, almost lead to the sameresults, which leads to its complete absence.
Although most of our domestic dogs their originsdevotion to lie precisely in this, to some extentpersistent immaturity, it gives the excessdifferent picture. These dogs are extremely affectionatewith their hosts - and along with other people. In In"The Ring of Solomon" I have compared this type of dogs withspoiled children that every man is called"Uncle" and any stranger to impose theirunsolicited friendship. And it's not a question of if such a dogknows his master, - on the contrary, she is happy for his returnand enthusiastically welcomed him more than others, afterwhich readily escapes from the first counter. Such aindiscriminate friendliness to all mankind,undoubtedly generate strong infantile - this isprove the whole structure of the behavior of these dogs. They Theyalways too prone to play, and long afterhow they will be a year and all of their normal peershave time to settle down long ago, they still bite their landladythongs and inflict mortal wounds curtains, and most importantly -maintain a slavish obedience, which the other dogs atgrowing up quickly gives way to a healthy self-confidence.Hollow out a sense of duty to a stranger, adog falls obsequiously before him on his back, he isstrictly speaking to her. And the one who holds her leash, forIt is awesome and powerful host.
A happy medium between too much and too dependentindependent dog - this is truly the ideal devoteethe dog. This ideal is found far less frequently and so, inAnyway, much less than meets the average ownerthe dog.
A certain degree of immaturity lastingrequires that the dog had for his master and lovedevotion, but its excess causes a dog as obedientadore all men indiscriminately. Therefore, only a relativelyfew dogs will actually defend his master'sof a bully: although they did not remain indifferent tothat the owner was attacked by someone, but people in general inspiresblagoveynoe respect them, and they are not able to causehim harm.
Loyalty of dogs belonging to the species, in the veinswhich runs for some wolf blood, principallydifferent from the dedication of our central European breeds,leading, apparently, their origin directly fromjackals. It is unlikely that there are rocks, dating back to the rightwolves: there is every reason to believe that a person at thetime, when he began to settle in the Arctic regions, wherecame into contact with the tundra wolf, alreadyaccompanied by a dog jackal blood. Cross-breeding with wolvesdomestic dogs of northern peoples was, obviously,relatively late and, in any case, muchlater than the first domestication of the jackal. As the wolfstronger and fitter, could be a need forrocks with a significant predominance of wolf blood, andand indomitable ferocity, probably not too botheredinhabitants of the Far North - the innate animal trainers,able to cope with the most independent dogs.The immediate result of this large and relativelyrecent tide wolf blood was significantlyattenuation "wolves" domesticated breeds traits, andSpecifically, the enduring immaturity. It is being replaceddependence of a different type, which owes itsorigin of the specific features of the wolf. If Ifjackal eats mostly carrion, the wolf - a real predator andwinter needs the help of his brethren, huntinglarge herbivores - it is the only food in this time of year.
In order to provide themselves with enough food,wolf pack forced to travel long distances, andresults depend on the hunting of mutual support in those momentswhen its members can hunt game birds. Strict organizationflocks, selfless dedication and unwavering leadermutual gain - that's necessary conditions for successfulsurvival of this species in the hard struggle for existence.These wolves properties fully explain the essence of a verysignificant differences in the nature of "jackals" and "wolf" dogs- Differences that are evident to all who truly understandsof dogs. of dogs. The former refers to the owners as todogs, parents, and the latter see them as a leader of the pack and morebehave with them accordingly.
Infantile obedience dog in wolf-jackalcorresponds to a proud dog "man's" loyalty, whichsubmission plays a minor role, and enslavement- No. Wolf dog in contrast to the jackal does notsees a host of something like a cross between the father and God, for itHe soon companion, though her affection for him muchdurable and not easily transferred to someone elseother. This is the "Monogamous" develops in the young wolfdogs in a very peculiar - at some point, childrendependence on parents clearly replaced by an adultdevotion to the leader of the pack, and this occurs even whenpuppy grows in isolation from their kind, and"Dog-parent" and "pack leader" are embodied in one person.


Explanation :


Ethology - the discipline field of zoology that studies animal behavior (initially - people). A term coined in 1859 by French zoologist I. Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire. Closely related to zoology, evolutionary theory, physiology, genetics, comparative psychology, animal psychology, as well as an integral part of cognitive ethology.

The founder of ethology, the Nobel laureate Konrad Lorenz, called ethology "morphology of the animal's behavior."

One moment in the history of Caucasian Shepherd.



Petr Rumyantsev Transdanubia (01.15.1725 - 12.19.1796), Count, Field-Marshal.


He was born of the marriage orderly PETER I Alexander Ivanovich Rumyantsev and Countess Maria Andreyevna Matveeva. Peter I, a wedding Rumyantsev and his flighty and changes his mistress Matveeva, and after the marriage has provided her a great location. Many thought the new-born son of a king, and the godmother was Catherine I. In 15 years, Rumyantsev was sent to Berlin to acquire diplomatic skills, but the youth was distinguished by such "extravagance, idleness " that the Messenger of Brakel hastened to get rid of him.
Finally being able to enter military service, Rumyantsev, four years later became a colonel. The first great victory won Rumyantsev during the Seven Years War (1756-63 gg.), When in 1757 the cabinet decided the outcome of the battle of Gross-Egersdorf. Then followed the successes in the battle of Kunersdorf (1758), taking the fortress of Kolberg (1761). Frederick II, told his generals: "Beware, as far as possible, this dog - Rumyantsev, the other for us is not dangerous."
In 1764, Empress Catherine II appointed him governor-general of Little Russia, and more than 30 years he was an active assistant of Catherine II in the reforms, which aimed to eradicate Ukrainian separatism, this "hidden hatred against the local people of Gdańsk (Great Russian)." At the beginning of the Russian-Turkish War of 1768-74 gg. Rumyantsev, first commander of the 2nd Army, and soon because of dissatisfaction with the slowness of Prince Golitsyn, Catherine became commander of Russian troops. Victory in battle in 1770 at the Tomb of Opinions, Largo and Cahul, when he withstood the superior forces of the enemy, brought glory to Rumyantsev, Field Marshal's baton and ribbon St. George the 1st degree. After the conclusion in 1774 Kuchuk Kainarji Rumyantsev received the title of Transdanubian and diamond decorated Field Marshal's baton, the sword, the laurel wreath, olive branch and the diamond marks the Order of St. Andrew, in his honor medal was struck, and bestowed for the amusement of 5000 souls, 100 thousand rubles, silver service and paintings. In the following the Russian-Turkish war over the conflict with a new favorite Grigory Potemkin Rumyantsev only nominally led forces, and Catherine found "his stay in the Army damaging its business."
The commander survived his only empress in the month and died of a stroke. He was buried in the Church of the Great Lavra.


Rumyantsev has contributed not only to the history of human society, but also in the history of the breed Caucasian Shepherd.
During the Russian-Turkish war, the Turkish Army Lieutenant Nuri Khalil Caucasian Shepherd used to protect the Turkish army garrisons. The command of the Russian army drew attention to it.

Commander Rumyantsev issued a special order on the use of the Caucasian Sheepdog in the compounds of the Russian army for guard duty in all the fortresses of the theater of events. Dogs trained to bring even bullets. But from the Caucasian Shepherd dogs of war did not happen, because their main job-security.

In the dog most often use the following codes to show the basic data about the animal physique.
Index of prolixity (format) - the ratio between the length and height of the dog: Length of body X 100/
height at the withers. The index size of 100, indicating that the height and length equal to the dog - the dog is square. Increase of more than 100 points to stretch, more long format.
The index of a bone - the relative development of the skeleton based on the ratio of the pastern with the height at the withers: metacarpus X 100/ height at the withers.
High on the index - the relative long-legged dogs, the ratio of leg length to total height at the withers: length of the front leg to the elbow X 100/
height at the withers.
The index of the chest - the relative development of breasts, the ratio of width and depth of chest width chest X 100/
depth chest.
Index of massiveness - the relative development of the trunk, the ratio of chest circumference to height at withers, chest X 100/
height at the withers.
Dolichocephalic index - relative - the length of the head, the ratio of head length to height at withers: length of head X 100/
height at the withers.
Index bullheaded - the relative width of the dog's head, forehead width X 100/
length  head.
