旧 English Sheepdog

旧 English Sheepdog

The 旧 English Sheepdog originates from...

与普遍的看法相反,'Old' English Sheepdog is in fact relatively new, only having developed around the 18th century in Devon, Cornwall or Somerset. Primarily bred as a versatile working dog used to herd, retrieve and guard the homestead, the 旧 English Sheepdog falls within the 'pastoral' branch of canines. Multiple theories surround the ancestry of the breed, with some recognising a likeness to the Bergamasco and Briard, and others suggesting a relation to the Deerhound and Poodle. The 旧 English Sheepdog has enjoyed great popularity throughout its existence, both as an agricultural aid and show dog. Exported to the United States in the 1800s, the 旧 English Sheepdog remains a favoured breed choice for working families.

The 旧 English Sheepdog is characterised by...

Retaining its powerful herding instinct, it is not uncommon for the 旧 English Sheepdog to chase smaller animals, so early socialisation, consistent training and firm leadership is important from an early age. Despite being an illegal practice across Europe, tail 'docking' is commonly observed in the breed, although this is not a breed standard. It is also typical for an 旧 English Sheepdog to be born without a tail altogether. Characterised by a robust and stocky build, with strong legs, a straight topline, a broad head and deep muzzle, the 旧 English Sheepdog is not easily mistaken for another breed. The coat is profuse and coloured in variations of white, grey, blue, grizzle, and blue merle, either with white or grey markings.

The average 旧 English Sheepdog...

The breed standard notes that the 旧 English Sheepdog should never show signs of nervousness or aggressiveness, but display calm, obedient and mannered behaviours. Devoted to children, the breed engages well in exercise and play, whilst adapting quickly to new situations and people. Highly energetic, the 旧 English Sheepdog is well suited to domestic living, providing its needs for regular exercise, mental enrichment and human companionship are met. The modern breed is commonly observed in dog agility, showmanship, obedience, flyball, herding and tracking. On average, a healthy 旧 English Sheepdog will weigh 27-30 kg depending on its gender, with a life expectancy of 10-12 years.

弱点...

Despite being generally healthy and robust, various health afflictions are identified in the breed. These range from mild to more serious. As with most canines, optical disorders, allergies, skin complaints and arthritis are well documented in the breed, and the 旧 English Sheepdog is also susceptible to thyroid inactivity, neurological disease, cancer, and cardiac problems, including atrial septal and tricuspid valve dysplasia. Deafness is also prevalent in the breed.

老英国七乐彩票开奖结果查询犬是忠诚,保护,善于交际的人,会随处可见,几乎可以做您想做的任何事情。他们喜欢长途散步,娱乐和酒吧或商店-可以与公众见面的任何地方!实际上,您会定期停下来,以便对他们进行崇拜和拍照。您将对听到有关其绘画能力的问题感到厌烦!他们很容易训练,但是如果他们认为自己是正确的话,确实会有一些tub强的痕迹……但是他们最终还是屈服了!要考虑的一件事主要是修饰:您每周需要大约4个小时来涂刷他们的双层大衣,并且可能需要定期洗澡。 Denman刷子似乎是最好的-猪鬃和尼龙,再加上缠结的梳子和乳液。您可以每年削减他们的大衣,但是除非您自己动手,否则这将是昂贵的,而且大衣在重新生长时往往会打结。在冬季,每次散步后都需要洗脚。在雪中,它们得益于赃物,可以阻止冰球在脚上形成。他们还需要每周洗一次耳,可能需要定期从耳道中摘除头发,并且修剪或绑住眼睛上的头发,以便看到较小的物体或光线不足。他们还需要修剪一下底部以阻止堵塞!修饰很费力,但可以起到很好的粘合作用,并且使用无结的外套可以使它们看起来绝对很棒!哦,不,他们不'夏天不会变热...大衣与阳光隔绝并且允许空气流通....尽管在河或海中飞溅总是很有趣!比起许多短毛犬,尤其是深色毛犬,它们在夏天的适应能力更强。

古老的英国七乐彩票开奖结果查询犬很爱,易于训练,忠诚,保护性强,善于交际。女性似乎更'€˜herding'€™,而雄性是自然的'€˜guards'€™。男性似乎比更独立但仍然爱着的女性更亲切。他们喜欢玩游戏,散步(他们特别擅长长途跋涉和爬山),并且喜欢在酒吧里消磨时光'他们可以在任何地方见面'€˜their public'€™。陌生人会定期阻止您,对他们进行崇拜和拍照'当我们走过去时,一对夫妇甚至邀请我们在婚礼照中摆姿势。他们也有自己的Facebook页面(佛罗伦萨&迪伦(Dylan),这样认识他们的人就可以看到并张贴照片。但是,您将对他们的绘画能力感到厌烦!当他们认为自己正确的时候确实有顽固的连胜'€…。但是他们最终还是以良好的宽容让步了。您需要考虑的主要事情是修饰。他们的双层大衣每周大约需要4个小时(当外套从幼犬或青少年外套换成外套时要花更多时间),使用不同状态的刷子以及缠结的梳子和洗剂进行刷牙。他们还需要定期(每周做6次)洗澡,每周洗一次耳,定期从耳道中去除毛发(大约每周8次),冬天每次步行都要用爪子洗,在雪地里穿赃物以防止脚上结冰球,其'€˜fringe'€™修剪或绑扎,以便他们可以看到较小的物体或光线不足,并且修剪它们的底部以防止堵塞。您可以每年削减他们的大衣,但是除非您自己动手,否则这将是昂贵的,而且重新长大时大衣往往会结在一起。修饰很费力,但粘合时间可能很长,而且使用无结的全涂层外套看起来很棒!哦,夏天它们不会特别热。它们比大多数短毛狗(尤其是深色狗)的应付能力更好。这件大衣将它们与太阳隔绝(尽管我们鼻子上有防晒霜)并允许冷却气流'尽管随时欢迎游泳!

我已经拥有OES三十五年了。因为他们是如此的爱和深情,所以爱它的品种辛勤工作和长时间的梳理也使我的OES取得了一些成功。我2岁的小伙子每周要花10个小时使我保持良好状态。如果您想拥有O.E.S,则需要花费大量时间进行锻炼和关注,但值得这么做。

I have owned two 旧 English Sheep Dog bitches and they were wonderful animals. Unfortunately both are now in doggy heaven. They were such outgoing and friendly animals and are sorely missed by family and friends. You certainly need a lot of energy and commitment but they are so worth the effort. They love other dogs, people, children, everything really. What a joy they were.

我的OES是我所知道的最善良,最甜蜜,最温柔,充满爱心和忠诚的狗。她没有'没有两个脑细胞可以摩擦在一起'我不知道很多命令,但是表现得很好。她从未停止过摇摆自己的尾巴,热爱生活。

当我们将她送回家时,她非常紧张,因为她来自完全被忽视的背景,却变成了一个如此快乐和友好的女孩。我每天为她修饰,但她的头发仍然是一场噩梦!我们只有她两年多,因为她3岁时突然去世,但她是我生命中的光明,我仍然每天都想念她...我无法'尽我所能'现在不哭就看OES。

这是我最喜欢的品种,但它们确实有缺点-例如在泥泞和雨中长发!即使剪了头发,他们也要进行大量的保养和修饰。髋关节问题也很常见。我的女孩患有严重的髋关节发育不良和退行性关节疾病,并因此而遭受了重创。
