History of the breed

The Eurasier breed is quite recent since it dates back to the 1960s. Its creator, Julius Wipfel, had the idea of crossing a Chow Chow with a Wolf Spitz. The result, a Wolf-Chow, was itself crossed with Samoyeds. This gave the Eurasier. Julius Wipfel was helped in his business by Konrad Lorenz, an ethnologist who also received the Nobel Prize in Medicine.

The Eurasier was recognized by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale on July 27, 1973. Then, the breed traveled through Europe. It is spreading in Germany, Holland as well as Belgium. It is still too little present in France.

Education

Clever
Obedient

The Eurasier must be educated with firmness , but without any form of brutality . The Eurasier must understand an order to execute it without flinching. He can be a little stubborn, but generally listens well to what is asked of him. Education is fairly easy as long as it is started early. He is a very sensitive dog who needs calm and a fairly clear rule. He must understand that he is not in a dominant position vis-à-vis his master. In addition, he should be socialized as soon as possible so that he does not develop any fear of strangers.

Living conditions

Suitable for apartment living
Good for new masters
Love it hot
Love the cold

The Eurasier appreciates the comfort that the interior of the house offers him , among the members of his family, but he will always prefer to have a large fenced garden to move around freely . It adapts perfectly to an urban living environment as long as it is sufficiently walked and stimulated. Living in an apartment should be banned for the Eurasier, who especially appreciates the great outdoors to be able to let off steam and exert himself physically. A house with a garden seems to be the best solution for it to flourish. In any case, the Eurasier must be able to count on the presence of his family because, despite his independence, he cannot stand loneliness .

Health

Solid
Ease of gaining weight

A large dog, the Eurasier is prone to hip dysplasia , like all canines of its kind. It is therefore important to moderate your physical activity, especially in her early years, in order to allow her normal growth. Other hereditary conditions to watch out for are Dandy-Walker malformation, elbow dysplasia, thyroid problems, upset stomach, and eye problems. In addition, its double and dense coat gives it very good protection against cold and bad weather.

Ease of grooming

Although her dress is very thick, the Eurasier   is not particularly a difficult dog to maintain on a daily basis. It is subject to molting, mainly in the spring, during which it can lose a lot of hair .

It is recommended to brush the dog once a week using a carding brush. During the moult, brushing becomes more frequent (almost daily), with the use of the curry to remove as much dead hair as possible . It can be washed up to 2 times a year (no more) with a suitable shampoo.

His ears and eyes should be checked regularly to make sure there is no trace of dirt or infection. Brushing your teeth helps eliminate tartar buildup and the growth of bacteria. Finally, if they do not wear out naturally, his nails need to be cut. If you are new to this, it is recommended that you seek advice from a veterinarian.
