Hounds and related breeds
Polish Ogar a breed of hounds of dogs, known since the 13th century. However, despite his solid age, it has not yet been possible to establish its exact origin and ancestors. Experts believe that the ancestors of Ogar are Austrian and German hounds, and his nearest relative is the Polish messenger.
Like many European breeds, Ogar was on the verge of disappearance during World War II. An interesting fact: two colonels who were avid hunters were able to preserve Polish dogs. Yuzef Pavlusevich was engaged in the restoration of the Polish hounds, and Peter Kartavik Polish Ogara. In honor of the latter today, even competitions among hunting dogs have been established.
Polish Ogar is an atypical representative of a group of hounds. On the one hand, he has all the features inherent in this animal: active in work, devoted to the owner, is happy to contact, is able to demonstrate independence. And on the other hand, thanks to developed security skills, he serves as a watchman, which is not at all typical for hounds. The thing is that this is a very loving breed. If Ogar recognized a member of his pack in the man, be sure that the pet will do everything in order to protect him. Such orientation on the family makes his character exceptional. Today, the Polish ogar is often made as a companion.
Many breed representatives do not trust strangers, behave with restraint and cold with them, but do not show aggression. In general, evil and nerve dogs are excluded from breeding these qualities are considered a breed vice.
Polish igar usually does not work alone, but paired. This is a sociable dog that can compromise. With relatives, he quickly finds a common language, treats cats calmly and sometimes shows interest. Therefore, the neighborhood of animals will largely depend on the reaction of the representative of the cat to the dog in the house.
Breeders note the affection and tenderness of the Polish ogar in relation to children. This is one of the few representatives of the hounds that will be happy to patronize the baby.
The short wool of the Polish ogar does not require careful care from the owner. The dog should be combed out twice a week during molting. The rest of the time it is enough to carry out this procedure once a week.
It is important to periodically inspect the hanging ears of the pet. Dogs with this type of ears are at risk: they often develop otitis media and other ENT pain due to poor ventilation of the organ and insufficient hygiene.
