Dog Breed & Breeders

    • Country of Origin
      The Labrador Retriever (also known as the 'Labrador' or 'Lab') descends from the Newfoundland Dog and the St. John's Water Dog in Newfoundland, Canada. It was bred to hunt in water and pull boats, which is evident to this day in its natural love for water. Contrary to popular opinion, the Labrador Retriever's name likely derives from the Portuguese 'lavradores' or Spanish 'labradores', both of which mean 'farm worker', rather than the 'Labrador' region of Canada. The Labrador Retriever was recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1917 and thereafter rose slowly but steadily in popularity due to its incredible versatility, obedience, and rugged good looks. It is now considered the world's most popular breed. The Labrador Retriever has been the most registered dog in America and England since 1991; the American Kennel Club had almost three times as many Labrador Retriever registrations in 2006 (124,000) as the second most popular breed. Famous Labrador Retrievers include the title character from the film version of 'Old Yeller' (though the book version was a Mountain Cur), Marley, from the bestselling memoir 'Marley and Me', and Tawny, a yellow Lab who gave birth to 18 puppies with her first litter in 1999 and was named the 'Iams Mother of the Year'.

      Size
      The Labrador Retriever has a shoulder height of 53-64 cm (21-25 in) and weighs 25-36 kg (55-80 lbs). It has emotional brown or hazel eyes, a large nose, moderate stop (point at which the muzzle meets the forehead) and straight, thick tail similar in appearance to an Otter's. Although not classified separately, the English and American lines have separate lineage. English Labradors (sometimes described as the 'show' line) have smaller, shorter bodies and a fuller face, and American Labradors (sometimes called the 'working' line) have a larger body and more boisterous personality.

      Coat and Color
      The Labrador Retriever has a short, thick, dense, weather-resistant coat which can be black, yellow (varying from cream to gold or almost red) or chocolate brown. There is also a rare silver variety which some think to be the result of a Weimeraner cross. A small white marking on the chest is permissible. It is possible for all colors of Labrador Retriever to appear in the same litter.

      Character
      The Labrador Retriever is unusually adaptable, obedient, and kind-hearted. No wonder it's so popular! Labs are sociable, affectionate, and loyal. They have a very keen sense of smell. Most Labrador Retrievers are athletic; puppies are particularly active.

      Temperament
      The Labrador Retriever has a mellow personality and gets along well with children, other dogs, and any household pets. Some Labrador Retrievers may chew, but they can be trained not to. Labradors do not make great watchdogs because they are friendly with strangers and are not territorial.

      Care
      The Labrador Retriever must be brushed once a week, twice when shedding. Like other large breeds, it is susceptible to hip dysplasia and elbow dysplasia. Some Labs are prone to PRA (an eye disorder) or ear infections. Ever the food connoisseurs, Labradors are prone to obesity, so don't let their charming personality connive you out of maintaining a healthy diet for them. Labrador Retrievers have a lifespan of 10-12 years. They can live outdoors in warm weather, but prefer indoor life with the family. Their high intelligence makes them adept at staging elaborate escapes, so proper precautions should be taken.

      Training
      The Labrador Retriever learns very quickly and loves to work for its handler. Leash training is recommended when young. The Labrador Retriever is capable of learning a wide variety of dog sports including Frisbee and Flyball.

      Activity
      Labrador Retrievers need plenty of exercise. They enjoy long walks and are especially fond of field sports, fetch, and water games.
    • Country of Origin
      French breeder Leon Verrier developed today's standard, which blends attributes of both varieties. The Artesian Basset needed straight legs that would neither hinder his speed nor drain his energy in order to work in unruly terrain, brush and briar. The breed was recognized in 1911.

      Because many short-legged dogs from this time were called Basset and record-keeping from this time was sparse, it is difficult to speculate which of these breeds have bloodlines in common with today's Basset Hounds. It is commonly believed that Marquis de Lafayette brought Basset Hounds to the United States as a gift to George Washington.
      A smooth-coated Basset Hound from 1915.

      In France, basset hounds achieved noticeable public cultural popularlity during the reign of Emperor Napoleon III (r. 1852-1870). In 1853, Emmanuel Fremiet, "the leading sculptor of animals in his day" exhibited bronze sculptures of Emperor Napoleon III's basset hounds at the Paris Salon. Ten years later, in 1863, the Basset Hound reached international fame at the Paris Dog Show.

      Size
      Basset Hounds weight and height depend upon male and female breed. Average Height used to be 11 to 15 inches and average weight used to be 46 to 64 pounds.

      Character
      The Basset Hound was bred to hunt. Its keen nose and short stature are suited to small-game hunting on foot, although many Bassets have lost their age-old skills. There are a few groups that promote hunting with bassets.The Basset Hound is a large dog with short legs.

      Bassets are so heavy and have such short legs, they are not able to hold themselves above water for very long, and should never be made to swim.

      Temperament
      The Basset Hound is seen as an especially friendly breed. For this reason they are an excellent pet for children. However, they can be stubborn animals.

      Because Bassets are scent hounds, they should always be on a leash when out on walks. Although they are well known to be lazy, they have a tendency to run especially after prey so a leash is very important for their safety. Even though Bassets sleep a lot, walks are still necessary.

      Bassets are known to be a vocal breed. Bassets might howl or bark when they want something or to suggest that they think something is wrong . They also use a low, murmuring whine to get attention, which sounds to many owners as though their Bassets are "talking." This whine is also used by the hound to beg (for food or treats) and varies in volume depending on the nature of the individual hound and length of time it has been begging.
    • Country of Origin
      The Saint Bernard (also ‘St Bernard’, ‘St Bernhardshund’, or ‘Alpine Mastiff’) is a massive Swiss breed descending from the Roman Molossar and indigenous Swiss breeds. It was adapted in the seventeenth century to the purpose of mountain rescue at the Saint Bernard Hospice (named after an 11th century monk) in the Western Alps. The Saint Bernard would find lost travelers, lick them, and lie near them to warm them (they did not carry small barrels of brandy from their necks, as is often portrayed). The Saint Bernard continued in this role for centuries, saving thousands of lives. Prior to the 19th century the Saint Bernard was known as the ‘Saint Dog’ or ‘Barry Dog’, after a Saint Bernard from the early 1800’s who saved over 40 lives. Saint Bernards decreased in numbers in the 1800’s due to disease (and, by some sources, avalanches). They were crossed with the Newfoundland and other breeds to improve their numbers, introducing a long-coated variety. Today, the Saint Bernard is among the most popular large breeds. Famous Saint Bernards include Stephen King’s ‘Cujo’…actually, never mind— Famous Saint Bernards include Beethoven, hero of the ‘Beethoven’ series of films and Bamse, mascot of the Free Norwegian Forces in World War II, who served on board a navy ship and was awarded the ‘animal’ George’s Cross. Bamse was known to ride the bus to the local watering hole by herself and bring crew members back to the ship before curfew.

      Size
      The Saint Bernard has a shoulder height of 65-70 cm (25-28 in) and weighs at least 60 kg (132 lbs), up to 136 kg (300 lbs). The largest Saint Bernard on record, Benedictine, weighed 162 kg (357 lbs)! Saint Bernards have a large head with large upper lips (‘flews’), short, deep muzzle, and wrinkled forehead. They have a flat back, muscular legs, a broad, low-carried tail, and large feet. The Saint Bernard is a large powerhouse of an animal.

      Coat and Color
      The Saint Bernard can be rough or smooth haired. It is white with possible markings of black, red, brindle, tan, or a combination thereof. Most Saint Bernards have black ears. Show dogs must have white legs, chest, collar, tail tip and blaze (vertical line between the eyes). The Saint Bernard sheds twice a year.

      Character
      The Saint Bernard is friendly and good-natured. It will defend its owner and territory when threatened. The Saint Bernard is intensely loyal. It is likely to slobber.

      Temperament
      The Saint Bernard is friendly with children, other dogs, and household pets. It is playful and adventurous.

      Care
      Both coat types of Saint Bernard require weekly grooming with a brush and comb, more often when shedding. Bathe only as necessary. The ears must be kept clean and eyes checked regularly to prevent infection. The Saint Bernard has a lifespan of only 7-10 years. It is susceptible to hip and elbow dysplasia (malformed joints which can cause lameness or arthritis), which can be aggravated by obesity. Proper exercise and nutrition are important. The Saint Bernard is susceptible to epilepsy and eyelid disorders such as entropion and ectropion.

      Training
      Saint Bernards should be taught not to pull on the leash when young because they will grow to such large size. Patience must be exercised in training as the Saint Bernard can be stubborn.

      Activity
      Saint Bernards require daily exercise, but not an enormous amount as one might assume from their large size. Moderate walks or runs will keep them satisfied; they should be exercised enough to keep them from growing obese. The Saint Bernard will occasionally appreciate a longer walk or a chance to run free.
