What do the Eurasians look like

It was in the late fifties that Julius Wipfel from Weinheim came up with the plan to breed a natural-looking, medium-sized dog that would be ideal as a family dog. The original character of the Chow Chow should be combined with the healthy genetic makeup and the simplicity of the Wolfspitz. The new breed of dog should be typical of the polar dog, with beautiful colors, a natural, uneducated appearance and a charming character that is adapted to our circumstances. Even from the first matings in 1960, dogs were obtained that came very close to the intended breeding goal. This breeding base for initial animals was called Wolf Chow. Finally in 1972 the Samoyed was crossed. He brought along the elegance of the physique and the friendly nature. The breed name "EURASIER" was determined according to the countries of origin of the original breeds: Wolfspitz - Europe; Chow-Chow and Samoyed - Asia.

The Eurasier has been recognized by the VDH and the F.C.I since 1973 and is now looked after by three associations within the VDH, the addresses of which are added at the end. As the youngest German dog breed, it combines the positive characteristics of very old original dog breeds, Wolfspitz, Chow-Chow and Samoyed.

The Eurasier is a harmoniously built, medium-sized, spitz-like dog of the Nordic type. Males are approx. 52 - 60 cm tall, ideally 56 cm and weigh between 22 - 30 kg, bitches are approx. 48 - 56 cm tall, ideally 52 cm, with a weight of 18 - 26 kg. It is available in many attractive colors, red to fawn, wolf-colored, wolf-gray, pure black and black with delimited light markings. The color of the coat does not play a role in breeding, health, breed-typical appearance and a balanced nature are in the foreground.

The Eurasier is not a "one-man dog", but is attached to the whole family. Lovers of the breed appreciate his self-confidence and calm, balanced temperament. He attentively reports strangers, but does not bark continuously. He shows neutrality towards strangers, some animals also a certain sovereign and non-aggressive restraint. He is very fixated on his family, which is why you shouldn't leave him in the hands of someone else on vacation. The unique ability to resonate and the character The Eurasier can easily be accustomed to various domestic conditions; he lives on the farm, in the apartment as well as in the house on the edge of the forest. No matter whether with an individual or a married couple or in families with small and large children, of course also with pets such as cats, rabbits, birds, he feels equally comfortable in every family environment, the main thing is that he can be there. He has also proven himself as a companion for older and single people, because he is a rather calm dog.

From the beginning it was Wipfel's wish Puppies only as needed to breed. From this a special system of breeding and puppy placement developed with the aim of assuming responsibility for the puppies bred for life. Even today we in the cynological breeding community for Eurasier follow the ideals of the breed founder. Eurasier breeding is hobby breeding and only takes place if enough interested parties are listed at a central puppy agency. This means that there may be a short waiting time for a Eurasier puppy. For all questions about rearing, upbringing, nutrition or if your Eurasier is ill, we are always available. The "Eurasier in Need" facility ensures that return dogs are found for a new owner or that they help with other difficulties.

The Eurasier is not difficult to raising. Of course, you should come to an agreement about what it is allowed and not to do before purchasing and make these clear rules understandable to the dog from the start and not just leave it to itself. If you start raising the puppy in a playful way, granting him full family ties and treating him with love, the necessary patience and consistency, he will develop into a pleasant and problem-free companion.

Its good Social behavior The Eurasier will be able to develop optimally with conspecifics if he has many contacts with conspecifics from the beginning without being leashed. Attending a good puppy play lesson is recommended. The great dog walks of the VDH Eurasier clubs with happily playing dogs of all colors are a very special experience for two- and four-legged friends and a very important experience, especially for the growing dog.

The Eurasier loves it very much when you are busy with him and will accompany you on all your ventures. The fact that he is a rather calm dog does not mean that he trots along with you outside completely temperamentally, he definitely loves variety and physical and mental occupation, but he is not a dog that you have to work with in order to use him to the full, but is quite satisfied with the living conditions as a member of the family. After the skeletal development is completed at the age of one year, he will also be happy to accompany you jogging, cycling or mountain hiking as well as on the horse. Dog sports are also possible with him. Everyone should be aware, however, that constant repetitions of exercises do not correspond to their nature. So if you expect absolute obedience as the most important quality in living with your dog or have particularly ambitious plans in dog sports, you should better opt for another breed. Eurasier can successfully take assistance dog exams; they are not suitable for protection dog training, as any training in someone else's hands or in dog schools without the presence of his master would spoil him. Even in a kennel he withers away.

Although the Eurasier is a long-haired breed, his is maintenance uncomplicated. The fur consists of a double hair with medium-length guard hair and a dense undercoat. Due to its protective grease film, it has natural dirt-repellent properties. If the young dog needs daily grooming to get used to it, brushing twice a week is sufficient for the adult dog; The Eurasier is not bathed. The fur is without the usual dog odor. If the hair changes in spring and autumn, daily brushing is advisable for about three weeks to remove the undercoat.

Regarding the nutrition he is astonishingly frugal. The supply of fresh food is particularly important during growth. About his extremely clean behavior and his natural Urge to move to meet the requirements, it should be done three times a day, including at least one long walk. At least an hour and a half should be spent on walks.

The Eurasier has no pronounced Hunting behavior. Chasing game trails for hours is not part of his behavior. Although he has the usual prey drive inherent in every dog, it can be curbed through consistent training. The good facilities of the Eurasier must be awakened and cared for.
