Golden Retriever

 

The Golden Retriever is a medium-sized breed of dog. They were historically developed as gundogs to retrieve shot waterfowl such as ducks and upland game birds during hunting and shooting parties. They were named retriever because of their ability to retrieve game undamaged. Golden Retrievers have an instinctive love of water. They have a dense inner coat that provides them with adequate warmth, and a water repellent outer coat that lies flat against their bodies. These dogs are well suited to suburban or country environments. Although they need substantial outdoor exercise, they should be kept in a fenced area because of their instincts as hunting dogs and tendency to roam.

The Golden Retrievers' intelligence makes them versatile, allowing them to fill a variety of roles, including guide dog for the blind, hearing dog for the deaf, hunting dog, illegal-drug detector, and search and rescue participant. Because of their loyal and gentle temperament, Golden Retrievers are also popular family pets.

Golden Retrievers possess friendly, eager-to-please demeanours, and are the third most popular family dog breed (by registration) in the United States,[3] the fifth most popular in Australia, and the eighth most popular in the United Kingdom.

History

 
Golden Retrievers were bred to retrieve.

The Golden Retriever has its roots in Scotland. In the mid-18th century, wildfowl hunting was very popular among the wealthy. In Scotland, a dog was needed that could retrieve from water and land because the land was covered in ponds and rivers. Early retrievers were crossed with the best of water spaniels, giving rise to the dog known as the Golden Retriever. The Golden Retriever was first developed in Scotland at "Guisachan" near Glen Affric, the highland estate of Sir Dudley Marjoribanks later Baron Tweedmouth. For many years, there was controversy over which breeds were originally crossed. In 1952, the publication of Marjoribanks' breeding records from 1835 to 1890 dispelled the myth concerning the purchase of a whole troupe of Russian sheepdogs from a visiting circus.  See Russian tracker.

Improvements in guns during the 1800s resulted in more fowl being downed during hunts at greater distances and over increasingly difficult terrain. This led to more birds being lost in the field. Because of this improvement in firearms, a need for a specialist retriever arose, as training setter and pointer breeds in retrievals were found to be ineffective. Thus, work began on the breeding of the dog to fill this much-needed role.

The original cross was of a yellow-coloured Retriever, 'Nous', with a Tweed Water Spaniel female dog, 'Belle'.  The Tweed Water Spaniel is now extinct, but was then common in the border country. Marjoribanks had purchased Nous in 1865 from an unregistered litter of otherwise black wavy-coated retriever pups. In 1868, this cross produced a litter that included four pups; these four became the basis of a breeding program which included the Irish Setter, the sandy-coloured Bloodhound, the St. John's water dog of Newfoundland, and two more wavy-coated black Retrievers. The bloodline was also inbred and selected for trueness to Marjoribanks' idea of the ultimate hunting dog. His vision included a more vigorous and powerful dog than previous retrievers, one that would still be gentle and trainable. Russian sheepdogs are not mentioned in these records, nor are any other working dog breeds. The ancestry of the Golden Retriever is all sporting dogs, in line with Marjoribanks' goals. The Golden Retriever was active and powerful and had a gentle mouth for retrieving games while on hunts.

Organizations other than clubs are dedicated to Golden Retrievers, such as breed-specific adoption sites.

England

Golden Retrievers were first accepted for registration by The Kennel Club of England in 1903, as Flat Coats – Golden. They were first exhibited in 1908, and in 1911 were recognized as a breed described as Retriever (Golden and Yellow).

America

It would take another 14 years for the breed to be recognized in America, and in 1925, the American Kennel Club (AKC) did so. In 1938, the Golden Retriever Club of America was founded.

Canada

The Honourable Archie Marjoribanks took a Golden Retriever to Canada in 1881, and registered 'Lady' with the AKC in 1894. These are the first records of the breed in these two countries. The breed was first registered in Canada in 1927, and the Golden Retriever Club of Ontario (the GRCO) was formed in 1958. The cofounders of the GRCO were Cliff Drysdale, an Englishman who had brought over an English Golden, and Jutta Baker, daughter-in-law of Louis Baker, who owned Northland Kennels.  The GCRO in later years expanded to become the Golden Retriever Club of Canada (GRCC).

Scotland

In July 2006, the Golden Retriever Club of Scotland organized a gathering of Golden Retriever enthusiasts at the ancestral home of Guisachan House. A photograph was taken by photographer Lynn Kipps to commemorate the occasion. It captures 188 Golden Retrievers, so holds the record for most Golden Retrievers captured in one image.    

 

Some variations do exist between the British type Golden Retrievers that are prevalent throughout Europe and Australia,  and those of American lines; these differences are reflected in the breed standard. The muzzle of the British type of dog is wider and shorter, and its forehead is blockier. It has shorter legs, with a slightly deeper chest, and shorter tail. Its features make it generally heavier than the American type. Males should be between 56 and 61 cm (22 and 24 in) at the withers and females slightly shorter at 51–56 cm (20–22 in). Their weight, however, is not specified in the UK standard. The KC standard calls for a level topline and straight hindquarters without the slight rear angulation found in American lines.  The eyes of the European type are noted for their roundness and darkness as contrasted with the triangular or slanted composition of their American counterparts. A Golden Retriever of British breeding can have a coat colour of any shade of gold or cream; however, red or mahogany are not permissible colours. Originally, cream was not an acceptable colour in the UK standard, but by 1936, the standard was revised to include cream. It was felt this exclusion was a mistake, as the original "yellow" retrievers of the 19th century were lighter in colour than the then current standard permitted. As with American lines, white is an unacceptable colour in the show ring. The British KC standard is used in all countries with the exceptions of the USA and Canada. Some breeders of this type in America may import their dogs to improve the temperament and health noted in those bloodlines . Golden Retrievers have muscular bodies with great endurance built for hunting.

American type

 
American Golden Retriever

An American Golden is lankier and less stocky than a British type. A male should stand 22–24 in (56–61 cm) in height at the shoulders, and females should be 20–22 in (51–56 cm). The coat is dense and water-repellent, in various shades of lustrous gold, with moderate feathering. The gait should be free, smooth, powerful, and well-coordinated.Canadian type

 
Canadian Golden Retriever

As with American Golden Retrievers, Canadians are often taller and leaner than their British counterparts. However, Canadian retrievers differ in the density and colour of their coats, which are commonly thinner and darker than those of Americans.

Coat

 
Golden Retrievers vary widely in colour.

As indicated by their name, their coats come in light golden to dark golden colours. They have two different types of hair on their coats:

  1. The topcoat is water-resistant and slightly wavy. It sheds in small amounts throughout the year.
  2. The undercoat is soft and keeps the retriever cool in summer and warm in winter. The undercoat sheds in the spring and fall.  It usually lies flat against the belly.

A Golden's coat should never be too long, as this may prove to be a disservice to it in the field, especially when retrieving game. Golden Retrievers have mild feathering on the backs of their forelegs and heaver feathering on the fronts of their necks, backs of their thighs and the bottoms of their tails. Colour

The American Kennel Club (AKC) standard states the coat is a "rich, lustrous golden of various shades", disallowing coats that are extremely light or extremely dark. This leaves the outer ranges of coat colour up to a judge's discretion when competing in conformation shows. Therefore, "pure white" and "red" are unacceptable colours, as is black ] The Kennel Club (UK) also permits cream as an acceptable coat colour.  Judges may also disallow Goldens with pink noses, or those lacking pigment. The Golden's coat can also be of a mahogany colour, referred to as "redheads", although this is not accepted in the British show ring.  As a Golden grows older, its coat can become darker or lighter, along with a noticeable whitening of the fur on and around the muzzle. Puppy coats are usually much lighter than their adult coats, but a puppy with a darker colouration at the tips of the ears may indicate a darker adult colour.

Temperament

 
Golden Retriever swimming

The temperament of the Golden Retriever is a hallmark of the breed, and is described in the standard as "kindly, friendly and confident".  Golden Retrievers make good family pets, particularly as they are patient with children.  They are not "one man dogs" and are generally equally amiable with both strangers and those familiar to them.  Their trusting, gentle disposition makes them a poor guard dog. Any form of unprovoked aggression or hostility towards either people, dogs or other animals, whether in the show ring or community, is considered unacceptable in a Golden Retriever and is not in keeping with the character of the breed. Nor should a Golden Retriever be unduly timid or nervous.  The typical Golden Retriever is calm, naturally intelligent and biddable, with an exceptional eagerness to please.

 
Most Goldens are high energy and need plenty of exercise, such as dog agility.

Golden Retrievers are also noted for their intelligence. The breed ranks fourth in Stanley Coren's The Intelligence of Dogs following the Border Collie, Poodle, and German Shepherd, as one of the brightest dogs ranked by obedience-command trainability.

Typical Golden Retrievers are active and fun-loving animals with the exceptionally patient demeanour befitting a dog bred to sit quietly for hours in a hunting blind. Adult Goldens love to work, and have a keen ability to focus on a given task. They will work until they collapse, so care should be taken to avoid overworking them.

Other characteristics related to their hunting heritage are a size suited for scrambling in and out of boats and an inordinate love for water. Golden Retrievers are exceptionally trainable—due to their intelligence, athleticism and desire to please their handlers—and excel in obedience trials. They are also very competitive in agility and other performance events. Harsh training methods are unnecessary, as Golden Retrievers often respond very well to positive and upbeat training styles. Golden Retrievers are compatible with other dogs, cats and most livestock. They are particularly valued for their high level of sociability towards people, calmness, and willingness to learn. Because of this, they are commonly used as guide dogs, mobility assistance dogs, and search and rescue dogs.

They are also known to become excellent surrogate mothers to different species. Kittens and even tiger cubs from zoos are well taken care of by them. In some cases, a retriever may produce milk for her adopted young, though she may not have been pregnant or nursing recently.

Health

The average life span for a Golden Retriever is about 11.  Golden Retrievers are susceptible to specific ailments. A responsible breeder will proactively minimize the risk of illness by having the health of dogs in breeding pairs professionally assessed and selected on the basis of complementary traits. They should be taken to a veterinarian for yearly checkups.

Golden retrievers are known to have genetic disorders and other diseases. Hip dysplasia is common in the breed; when buying a puppy, the pedigree should be known and be examined by the OFA or by PennHIP for hip disease. Obesity is also common in the breed because Golden Retrievers love to eat. Puppies should eat about three cups of food a day and adults three to five cups, depending on the food and how active the dog is.

Shih Tzu

Appearance

 
A Tricolor (black,white and gold) Shih Tzu in show coat.

The Shih Tzu is a small dog with a short muzzle and large dark eyes. With a soft and long double coat, it stands no more than 26.7 cm (101вЃ„2 in.) at the withers and with an ideal weight of 4.5 to 7.3 kg (10 to 16 lbs). Drop ears are covered with long fur, and the heavily furred tail is carried curled over the back. The coat may be of any colour, though a blaze of white on the forehead and tip of the tail is frequently seen. The Shih Tzu is slightly longer than tall, and dogs ideally should carry themselves "with distinctly arrogant carriage". A very noticeable feature is the underbite, which is required in the breed standard. The traditional long silky coat, which reaches the floor, requires daily brushing to avoid tangles. Because of their long coat and fast-growing hair, regular grooming is necessary, which may be costly and should be considered when looking at this breed. Often the coat is clipped short to simplify care. For conformation showing the coat must be left in its natural state, though trimming for neatness around the feet and anus is allowed.

Temperament

The Shih Tzu dog breed has a personality and temperament that is loyal, affectionate, outgoing, and alert. While the Shih Tzu is an excellent watch dog, they were not specifically bred for this purpose. Unlike the Lhasa Apso, which was bred to be a sentinel dog that enjoys high perches and is wary of strangers, the Shih Tzu prefers to be close to its companions and will often offer strangers its affection. Due to its friendly nature, the Shih Tzu tends to interact well with other dogs and with children and adults.

Coat colours

A liver and white Shih Tzu with a liver-colored nose.
A solid white Shih Tzu with a black head and ears

The Shih Tzu comes in a range of colours that include various shades of gold, white, brown, red, an blue. Other colours include black mask gold, black and white, solid black, solid liver, liver and white, brindle and white and grey and white.Though not as common there are also solid blue Shih Tzu. An interesting point (and often a point of confusion) is that while the coat color of those with black pigmented skin (nose, lips, pads, also referred to as "leather") is determined by the color of the coat itself; the coat color on dogs with either liver or blue pigment is categorized by the color of the pigment. Thus a parti colored (white and another shade) Shih Tzu with blue pigment is a "blue and white" regardless of the tint of the hair which might very well appear similar to a gold and white or other colors. The same principle applies to solid blue, liver and liver and white.Sometimes you might see dark brown pigments near the shoulders and between the armpits.

Etymology

The name Shih Tzu comes from the Chinese word for "lion dog" because this kind of dog was bred to resemble "the lion as depicted in traditional oriental art,"such as the Chinese guardian lions. (There is also the Pekingese breed, called "lion dog" in Chinese.) "Shih Tzu" is the Wade-Giles romanization of the Chinese characters зЌ…е­ђ, meaning lion; Wade-Giles romanization was in use when the breed was first introduced in America, but in modern times Pinyin romanization is used, rendering it shД«zi. The Mandarin Chinese pronunciation is approximately SHIRR-dzЙ™. The Shih Tzu is also known as the "Xi Shi dog" ) because Xi Shi was regarded as one of the most beautiful women of ancient China.Shih Tzu were nicknamed the Chrysanthemum Dog in England in the 1930s. The dog may also be called the Tibetan Lion Dog, but whether or not the breed should be referred to as a "Tibetan" or "Chinese" breed is a source of argument, the absolute answer to which "may never be known".

History

DNA analysis placed the ancestors of today's Shih Tzu breed in the group of "ancient" breeds indicating "close genetic relationship to wolves". Ludvic von Schulmuth studied the skeletal remains of dogs found in human settlements as long as ten thousand years ago.[citation needed] Another branch coming down from the "Kitchen Midden Dog" gave rise to the Papillon and Long-haired Chihuahua and yet another "Kitchen Midden Dog" branch to the Pug and Shih Tzu. There are various theories of the origins of today's breed. Theories relate that it stemmed from a cross between Pekingese and a Tibetan dog called the Lhasa Apso.Dogs during ancient times were selectively bred and seen in Chinese paintings. The first dogs of the breed were imported into Europe (England and Norway) in 1930, and were classified by the Kennel Club as "Apsos".[10] The first European standard for the breed was written in England in 1935 by the Shih Tzu Club, and the dogs were recategorised as Shih Tzu. The breed spread throughout Europe, and was brought to the United States after World War II, when returning members of the US military brought back dogs from Europe. The Shih Tzu was recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1969 in the Toy Group. The breed is now recognized by all of the major kennel clubs in the English-speaking world.[citation needed] It is also recognised by the FГ©dГ©ration Cynologique Internationale for international competition in Companion and Toy Dog Group, Section 5, Tibetan breeds.

Health

Shih Tzu puppy

A number of health issues, some of them hereditary, have been found in individual Shih Tzu, and are listed below. There is no data on the percentage of dogs with these ailments.

Hypothyroidism

Hypothyroidism occurs when the thyroid gland malfunctions and stops producing a hormone responsible for proper metabolism. This malfunction is commonly attributed to immune system problems. It usually affects middle-aged dogs and is seen in all breeds. Symptoms include hair loss, weight gain, muscle loss, and lethargy. This disease is usually diagnosed through blood tests. It can be effectively treated with drug therapy.

Intervertebral Disk Disease

Intervertebral Disk Disease in the dog is a common chondrodystrophic disorder manifested by acute back pain, loss of coordination, paresis, and loss of the ability to feel deep pain sensations. IVDD commonly occurs in certain toy breeds, such as Dachshund, Pekingese, French Bulldog, Beagle, Basset Hound, American Cocker spaniel, Shih Tzu, Lhasa Apso, and Welsh Corgi.

Breathing problems

Shih Tzus have a lot of respiratory problems related to the shape of their face and head (the brachycephalic syndrome) which affects mostly dogs with a short nose (brachycephalic breeds). An obstruction in the upper airways causes the dog to have laboured breathing. Not every brachycephalic dog will develop respiratory problems but most will to some degree or other. Severe problems may require surgery.

Health issues

Some health issues in the breed are portosystemic shunt of the liver and hip dysplasia in standard sizes. There have been cases of Shih Tzu being epileptic, which in turn may shorten the life span if untreated.

Life span

UK Kennel Club survey puts the median life span of a Shih Tzu at 13 years 7months, with most living between 10 and 20 years.


Variations

Kennel club differences

There is a difference between the American Kennel Club and the Kennel Club (UK) Shih Tzu:

The AKC (American Kennel Club) Shih Tzu

  • Their front legs (forequarters) are straight. Their hindquarters are muscular. Neither should be too short nor too long.
  • The standard head is big and round and is set high with face looking forward or up.
  • The neck and body are the most important and should not be exaggerated
  • The eyes are large and face the front.
  • The shoulders of the American type of Shih Tzu are frontal.

 

If you have an expensive coat of fur, then you know that it is necessary to look for. Coat Shih Tzu also need to comb every day. Fortunately, dog liking this procedure, and you are accustomed to, will also receive care from a favorite treat. Remember how little girls love their dolls and combing their hair done. Caring for a Shih Tzu - about this series, but here is much more interesting, because you have in the hands of the living, a charming little dog!

Choose quality tools for grooming: Shih Tzu live about 15-16 years, so a waste of money will pay off. You will also need a special table. Since the dog is small, is much more comfortable during the procedure when it is at about the level of your waist. Just do not let her jump off the table - be sure to remove it yourself.

Bow on top of the head

Especially thick and long hair with a Shih Tzu on top. If you decide not to make his favorite haircut, gather it into a high ponytail, so it does not interfere with the dog to see. Intercept a small ponytail elastic rubber band, if you want a bow tie. Make a hairstyle is difficult: it is necessary to coat does not fall on the eyes, but it was not too taut. At the end of the day it is better to cut the gum: the contraction can pull individual hairs and cause the dog pain.

Puppy JOY

Teach your puppy to lie on his side during combing, so you can get to his tummy and armpits, where most are formed mats. Care for the short and fluffy wool puppies is quite simple. However, about 10 months from the Shih Tzu shows "adult" coat, and if you do not teach your dog to raschersyvaniyu, you both have to challenge.

TONKOSTI CARE

Before you start scratching, soak the hair spray, air conditioning or water from a spray bottle. Comb its parts with the growth from the roots to the tips. Finding a tangled coat, apply the conditioner on it, let it sit for a few minutes, then gently comb. If, during a walk in hair fall spines or thin twigs, immediately remove them, otherwise formed plica, which will have to cut. Combing the dog, first use massage brush and then comb. If the pet long hair, divide it into his head that it nispodala evenly on both sides.

PROBLEM AREAS

Soft fur behind his ears quickly goes awry, so regularly inspect these areas and gently comb them. Do not forget also about the armpits and tummy. Timely mow hair between the pads: it can get rolled up into clumps, which will cause the dog discomfort.

Oh, you slut!

Many owners shih tzu tied to his favorite fur around the mouth and on the back of the head, so it does not become dirty. If you do not want to tie ponytails, be prepared for the fact that after a meal will have to wash your hair and comb.

ALWAYS ALERT

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Despite the small size of the Shih Tzu make excellent guard! Perhaps because the ancestors of this dog carrying the watch in distant Tibetan monasteries, protecting native walls from uninvited guests. In the Shih Tzu is very acute hearing, so when a stranger, he immediately began to bark. If a stranger behaved friendly, the barking stopped. If not, the barking was getting stronger, and the monks produced mastiffs. Regardless of whether you have a Mastiff or not, your Shih Tzu will immediately notify everyone about the appearance of a stranger - whether a postman, a neighbor or your favorite grandmother.

This is not a toy!

Shih Tzu - a very smart dog, so it is easy to learn different tricks and commands. She would be happy to perform tasks on agility, since loves to jump. However, the team of obedience dog may seem tedious, and being a kind of independent, she will perform only what is deemed necessary. Sit on your lap Shih Tzu will be only when she wants it. It may well be that arrogant woman, contrary to your wishes, jump off and retire to a private residence to take a little nap. This is not some kind of toy!

THIS WHIRLWIND
Although the Shih Tzu does not need intensive training, he is able to show an amazing activity. According to the owner, Fletcher, the hero heading "Supersobaki," along with his friend Tommy often worn to race around the first floor, from the entrance hall to the dining room and back. Their record - 33 range!

TAKE ON HAND!

Shih Tzu - undersized dog, so do not let her jump off the table for combing, as well as other furniture to baby do not hurt my back. And, of course, out of the car or sitting in it, keep the dog in her arms.

Follow a diet

Little dogs love to eat, so do not fall for the charm of his favorite eye and do not give him too many treats. Under the long hair may soon appear thick layer of fat!

KEEP EYES

Do shih tzu, as well as in pugs and Pekingese, rather prominent eyes, so they are easily damaged by accidental impact or scratching. In place of microtrauma may form an ulcer. Therefore, inspect the eyes of your pet every day, and in the case of any problems, contact your veterinarian: the sooner you begin treatment, the dog will recover faster.

AMBULANCE


Like other breeds with short noses have a Shih Tzu fits of breathlessness during which the dog is relaxed and breathing short and hoarse. Such a condition can cause excitement or overheating. Close the pet's nose, he began to breathe through the mouth, and the attack stops.

With MILK TEETH

At the age of 10-20 weeks puppy unusually receptive to learning. Do not waste your time and you will find an intelligent, educated friend! Your puppy will quickly learn to respond to his nickname.

Begin the process of learning from the very first minutes of the puppy in your home. Almost all dog training methods are based on the principle of promotion: the dog for good behavior rewarded favorite treat, petting or playing with the host, but on offense do not pay attention.
Before you start a puppy, think together with the other members of the family nickname for him, decide what words will be used as the basic commands. It is important that all who come into contact with the puppy, the requirements of the same requirements, then he will know what he should do. The dog does not understand human speech as such, but quickly remembers the sounds and the associated actions.
First of all teach your puppy to respond to the nickname. Call it the little dog by name when you see it, stroking and of course when you want to beckon to him. If the kid reaches for you to sniff, tell him, for example: "Rover, come here!" and stroke that he had the association between the words "Rover", "Come here," smiling and stroking. Never utter these words, if you want to punish the dog, otherwise it bystrro learns that the sounds are threatened her troubles, and, on the contrary, he will flee away.

Put in your pocket some dog treats and perform in the garden or a large room such exercises. Become together with some of the family members at a distance from the puppy and call the kid. When the puppy suit, give him a treat and refresh this action words, praise the little dog. After that, the same thing will do even a member of your family. Repeat this process several times, run around like a puppy, carrying the team for which he is praised and encouraged.
If the puppy is quite small, these lessons should be very short. Try to finish training on a pleasant note - cheer the dog, praise it. Never attempt to exercise, if you have a bad mood or you take your time. The dog will sense that and not be able to concentrate.OUR BREEDS

It is important to never wash Sharpe's head. Water entering the ears Shar-Pei is a serious problem that is not found in other breeds of dogs. These dogs are very thin and auditory channels in contact with water may develop a serious infection of the ears.
