Akita Temperament and Traits

The Akita has a unique temperament that is one of the reasons they have such a loyal following of dog breeders and owners. The Akita is a very loving and steadfast dog, naturally very protective but also independent and capable of thinking things out for his or her self. While they thrive on human attention they are also good when left on their own and are not prone to separation anxiety or destructive behavior provided they are routinely exercised and obedience trained. Akitas can be good outside dogs although they really prefer to be around people whenever possible. [...]

History of the Doberman Pinscher

As with most of the breeds of dogs that were developed in Europe and more specifically within what is now Germany, the origins of the Doberman Pinscher reach back far into history. The actual development of the current breed of Doberman Pinschers is much more recent, but also like most dogs from the area they were developed for a very specific purpose as a working dog. [...]

Breed Standards Of The Doberman Pinscher

As a working and guardian dog the original Doberman Pinschers were bred more for their ability to provide protection and stay with their owners than they were for their looks or their companionship qualities.

The Ancient Pharaoh Hound

The Pharaoh Hound is perhaps the oldest breed of domesticated dog in the world. They can be traced, as a breed, back to the early years of the Egyptian culture. It is estimated that this dog existed as a defined and distinctive type by 3000 to 4000 B.C. Carvings, drawings and sculptures as well as records clearly show a dog that is identical to the modern Pharaoh Hound within tombs and burial areas within Egypt, clearly indicating these dogs were not only present but valued by the various royalty and individuals of the time. [...]

The History of Dogs in The North

The history of dogs in North America is slightly different depending on which breeds you are considering. There are many breeds which have been imported since the colonization of the United States and Canada, however there were also breeds here long before the Europeans arrived. These dogs, now commonly known as Inuit Sled Dogs or Canadian Sled Dogs but correctly known as Qimmiq, are an interesting breed with a very important role in the survival of the Inuit people. [...]
