Dogs bite sheep and cows for shins. Animals are accelerated, getting off in herd. The equipment is fulfilled in Australia where in the 1903rd year and breed a hiler is registered.
Description and features of the Australian hiler
Officially Australian hiler is called catl a mastiff. As his ancestor consider a dingo dog. Data demand addition. Dingoes crossed to the English shepherd’s dogs who moved to the continent with colonialists. Puppies turned out silent and aggressive. For shepherd’s dogs is more useless. But, the posterity of domestic dogs and dingo was adapted for local climate. English dogs couldn’t work qualitatively in droughty steppes with a difficult landscape. Genes of a dingo adjusted a situation. However, because of aggression of new breed refused it.
As the true birth of a hiler read out crossing from a dingo blyu-merlya. This is the only Englishman who «calmed down» aggression of a wild animal. Blyu-merl is brought by crossing of a collie and the Italian borzoi by hereditary cattle-farmers of Northumberland – counties on border of Scotland and England.
At the expense of blood blyu-merlya puppies from crossing with a dingo turned out appeasable, vociferous. From savages there were only an endurance and fitness to climate of Australia. Over the ocean breed was recognized in the 1979th.
The modern standard «sees» the Australian hiler, as a strong and compact animal of a harmonious structure. Heaviness and leanness – serious shortcomings. In character such shortcoming aggression is considered. And here suspiciousness – the standard for a hiler. The dog has to be on the alert, differently won’t be able to protect and overtake herd.
Hiler to any strangers, even to experts at exhibitions are suspicious. Shepherd’s dogs of a show class long accustom to reveal before judges.
Having estimated habits of a dog, experts estimate also compliance to an exterior. Lines of a forehead and a muzzle have to be parallel. Between ears a skull convex. Therefore the Australian hiler makes impression of a serious and thoughtful dog on a photo. Characteristics coincide with the real.
The wide muzzle of a hiler is filled under eyes, is gradually narrowed to a nose. Lips at a shepherd’s dog are densely squeezed, narrow. Cheeks of a hiler brawny, slightly are given in the parties.
The description of the Australian hiler includes tens points. Deviations from the standard – an occasion to lower an exhibition assessment. Allow to service of dogs and without it, paying attention only to key parameters, for example, an equal nozhnitseobrazny bite.
He helps an animal to bite cattle, driving in herds, and to protect from attacks.
In addition in service pay attention to body proportions. Length from withers to a sciatic hillock exceeds height in withers. It does a hiler by the good runner. The developed muscles give the chance to cause a stir not only in sprint, but also a marathon, overtaking herds on long distances.
The main word characterizing appearance and character of the Australian shepherd’s dog – moderation. Animal moderately wide, moderately high, moderately aggressive and moderately friendly. Wool of a hiler the moderately long.
On a body of hair are short, but on hips there are so-called panties. They are put by an ostevy hair. It at a hiler the waterproof. Under an awn – a dense underfur.
The color of the hero of article red or blue, happens even blue. Multiple light gray marks on a body are allowed. The Krapchatost – heritage of a dog of a dingo. From it yellowish-brown marks on the head, feet of a hiler got.
For Europeans breed new. Thirst for exotic forces to reach and for information on a dog. It is necessary to learn what it in the house contents, than eats as propagates.
Leaving and contents
In the house contents breed the Australian hiler suits active people. Nature of the shepherd and genes of a wild dog demand long walks, games, trainings. Respectively, more freely hiler feel in private farmsteads. The contents in the apartment is difficult. On that is the additional reasons, for example, a vociferousness of dogs. Shepherd’s genes demand to inform on approach of strangers, to frighten off ill-wishers.
Suspiciousness of the Australian animals forces them to perceive ill-wishers of any strangers, any foreign sounds.
Children can be engaged with the pet. Hiler are favorable to them. However, there is a risk of domination of a dog over the owner. The Australian dogs are cunning, check owners for a weak point.
At opportunity, four-footed think themselves main, and a family – a flock which it is necessary to watch. The dog starts biting people for shins, trying to operate them, as well as cows.
Hiller still a puppy it is desirable to write down on obedience courses. There the dog will be taught teams and recognition of the owner. Methods are used the humane. The Australian dogs don’t accept physical punishments. Training to hiler in pleasure is standard. Dogs are clever, sharp-witted, quickly grab teams and exercises.
Life the hiler expresses content in a smile. Its similarity on a muzzle of the Australian dogs – the frequent phenomenon. The smile in the presence of competitors disappears. In the house contents hiler of the single, dislike other animals. Shepherds actively share leadership with dogs and cats, and for mice yes parrots hunt.
It should be taken into account also a sex of the pet. It is important for neatniks. Boughs of shepherd’s breed fade 2 times a year, and dogs only one. Loss of wool at girls coincides with techka. Them too the 2nd in a year. Allocation ready to reproduction boughs, as well as wool, soil furniture, carpets.
It is necessary to stock up with diapers for the technykh of dogs, and itself four-footed to take on a short lead. Otherwise a bough can run away for a reproduction.
If this continuation planned it is necessary to find the worthy partner with documents and suitable inquiries for knitting. The payment is taken, of course, not by a dog, but his owner.
Out of the molt period wool of a hiler doesn’t bring trouble. Comb an animal occasionally. Wool samoochishchatsya, pushes away moisture, doesn’t fall down.
Ears to hiler clean time in 2-3 weeks. Accustom to a toothbrush of dogs daily. Once a month is required a hairstyle of claws. It is necessary to deal with food of animals.
Food of the Australian hiler
At the expense of dingo genes the dog the Australian hiler is sensitive to potatoes, bread, yeast, sugar. The list supplements garlic, spices, mushrooms and onions. These products are alien to wild animals. You remember plates in zoos: «You don’t feed animals, it can do much harm to them»?
Light carbohydrates, spices and other delights of a human table at dogs become the reason of oncology, problems with a digestive tract.
Dry feeds, unlike the majority of domestic dogs, the Australian too transfers badly. The wild genetics demands natural, proteinaceous food. Meat is served the crude. Low-fat grades get out, making 60-70% of a diet. The remained 30% — dairy products of grain, fruit and berries. Many hiler consider as a delicacy apples, bananas.
The diet of puppies and adult dogs is identical. Only volumes of portions and frequency of meal differ. Puppies eat 5-6 times a day. To the created hiler of rather 2-3-times food.
Possible diseases of a hiler
Shepherd’s dogs of Australia are genetically predisposed to the progressing blindness. At it the eye retina will atrophy. The genetic test allows to understand, whether there is a tendency to an illness at a concrete individual.
Some factory owners of hiler so select dogs for cultivation. Allow the completely healthy to it. There are still gene carriers which aren’t ill, but transferring predisposition, and the carriers risking to go blind.
The second problem of the Australian shepherd’s – congenital deafness. It is shown usually at dogs with white marks. Hilera are born white, as dalmatians. The last – one of ancestors of shepherd’s dogs, participated in removal of breed on an equal basis with if also borzois. Dalmatians too are inclined to deafness, gave genes to hiler.
Among hiler 2% of puppies are born deafs. 14 more don’t hear one ear. From here obligatory computer research of hearing of all thoroughbred puppies at 6-week age. The rule, however, works only in Australia.
Local researches show that out of group of risk of an individual with a speckled color. Among such deafs didn’t reveal.
In Russia there is an opinion that crossing of blue dogs with the red gives the most healthy posterity. These data have neither scientific, nor statistical justifications. The third illness of hiler – a displaziya of joints.
The disease too has genetic character, being transmitted through 14 generations. In Australia dogs with a displaziya are discharged of cultivation. In Europe the rule came into force recently.
Genes of dogs with a displaziya already managed to be transferred to the posterity which is bought up by Americans, British, French, Russians. In Finland displaziy a half of the registered hiler suffers.
The illness put genetically can not be shown. It is necessary to avoid an exhaustion of a dog run, physical loadings, a restern. The risk of emergence of a displaziya increases together with the mass of an animal. Usually, the illness affects large and massive individuals.
The last problem of shepherd’s breed – a bite. It always nozhnitseorbrazny. Having a snack and nedokusa happen seldom. And here shortage of teeth – a breed scourge. The standard resolves shortage of 1-3-ekh teeth in a set from 42.
Lack of canines or cutters at parents increases risk of the birth of toothless puppies. Therefore, at a thoroughbred dog without pair of teeth the hiler without 4-5 can be born. It already tribal marriage. Therefore, choosing a puppy, it is important to examine his mother and the father. It isn’t enough acquaintance only with documents of parents.
Price of puppies
Puppies of the Australian hiler from a family tree stand from 25 000. The average price – 35 000, and maximum – 70 000. The price tag depends on a class of parents of puppies. If both have an exhibition assessment «very well», to ask millions there is nothing. If parents – repeated winners of the international exhibitions, the high cost of puppies is proved.
Influences the price of a hiler and a seasonal factor. In the summer any puppies are on sale worse. In the winter demand grows. Especially favourably sell dogs under new year. Some order live gifts. The same concerns knitting cost.
In anticipation of summer factory owners of dogs ask less and are often ready to take payment by 1-2 puppies. In their dung usually 4-6.
Buying the Australian hiler, you get the friend for the next 12-20 years. A framework of life of healthy dogs is that. Hiler live in rural areas more long. It, besides, supervision of Australians, the chtushchikh native breed and conducting statistical calculations, it concerning.
