    It can be quite a complicated process to assess a dog by its constitution and exterior looks. First of all, both experts and dog owners need to have in mind that an assessment of any dog’s exterior is not simply the be-all and end-all, but rather a way to help improve the breed and increase the vital capacity of its ...

    Проведение экспертизы собак по конституции и экстерьеру - дело довольно трудное. Прежде всего, и экспертам,и владельцам собак необходимо помнить, по экстерьеру не самоцель, а средство совершенствования породы, повышения ее жизнестойкости и закрепления ценных служебных качеств. Экспертиза по экстерьеру и экспертиза по служебным качествам - два аспекта одной и той же проблемы.

    Специалисты, занимающиеся породой восточно-европейская овчарка в прошлом, всегда говорили о чрезвычайной важности учета пользовательных качеств собаки при ведении племенной работы. Абстрактная погоня за "голым экстерьером", оторванным от других жизненно важных для породы признаков неприемлема.

    Caesar has a rock solid temperament and my training has enhanced it. My methods are gentle and encouraging, rather than punishment related and forceful. I want the dogs that I train to WANT to obey me because they’re happy to please me, not to obey me because they’re worried about what might happen if they don’t. As well as this he’s already 50 kilos, so if you don’t have control of him verbally, there’s probably very little chance that you’ll control him physically if he doesn’t respect you. Through a consistent program of training and expecting a very high standard of good manners from him at all times we have produced a dog who is polite and obedient. Its very important that you maintain these rules when he gets to you and expect the same level of manners because this will slip if not kept in check. When he went to Paphiakos for the 3 weeks over Christmas he came back to me jumping up and pulling on his lead because the staff obviously hadn’t maintained his manners as strictly as I do. It only took me one day to get him back to how I wanted him, but it just goes to show how quickly they can forget their manners and training when allowed to get away with stuff.

    East-European Shepherd

    The East-European Shepherd is larger than an average dog: males are 26–28 inches at the withers, while females are 23–26 inches. Along with a short coat of dense fur, they have strong (but not coarse) bones and well-developed muscles. Their coat is medium in length with a well-developed undercoat. The acceptable colors for these dogs include saddled, (that can be saturated to give an almost black-and-tan or black-and-red appearance), blanket-back black and tan, solid black, and solid liver. Some rare colors include: blue, (saddle, blanket-back, and solid), silver, and solid white. Agouti—gray and red is permitted for breeding but not desired.

    Caesar

    As a breeder of German Shepherds and a dog trainer and behaviourist of all breeds I thought I’d dealt with most breeds of dog. So when I got a call to ask if I’d kennel and train up an East European Shepherd I was baffled. I’d never actually heard of this breed!! A quick Google search gave me the information I needed and I was really looking forward to meeting the dog and working with a breed I’d never worked with before. Obviously I didn’t know what to expect temperament or trainability wise and was excited about the challenge.

    This powerful breed is seen by many as what the ideal working German Shepherd Dog should be, with some even considering it to be the original incarnation of the popular German breed. However, it should be noted that even though related, the East-European Shepherd is neither the same breed nor a type of the GSD, but a very different and separate working dog from the USSR. It could be argued that it was developed as an improvement upon the GSD, which proved itself to be unsuitable for harsh climates of the former Soviet Union when it was introduced to the country in the 1920's, but the East-European Ovcharka was created in the 1930's using a number of breeds, many of which have remained undisclosed to this day. What has been confirmed is the employment of imported German Shepherds, a variety of indigenous Russian Laikas, Central Asian Ovcharkas and Dobermanns in the breeding programme, but quite a few other breeds have been suggested as having a part in its creation, including Black Russian Terriers, Caucasian Ovcharkas, Moscow Mastiffs and even some wolf-hybrids and local greyhounds, but whether this was really the case is unclear.
