For hunting, you need a like-minded person who will not let you down at a crucial moment, but will clearly fulfill the task assigned to him. Russian pinto hound is considered the best for rutting. After all, excitement, the instinct for the pursuit of prey in the hound in the blood. The sonorous, singing bark distinguishes representatives of this breed from other tetrapods.

Origin history

The formation of the Russian piebald breed (Anglo-Russian hound) dates back to the 18th century. It was then, during the reign of Anna Ioannovna, a famous hunting lover, Count Saltykov brought her the first dogs from England.

One of the ancestors is a Foxhound dog, which has been successfully used in the hunt for hares and foxes. The formation of the breed was due to the producers of the Moscow, Tula, Tver regions.

There was an active crossing of French hunting breeds, English and Russian with the aim of manifesting and continuing the best working and hunting qualities. As a result of a long and painstaking selection work, the Russian pinto hound breed appeared. The original breed standards were published in 1925.

The original name of the breed is the English-Russian hound. In 1951, the breed was renamed to Russian piebald. You can also find the name potter.

Russian hound or Russian pinto hound

The question arose which dog works better - Russian hound or Russian pinto hound. All other things being equal. Do they have a difference other than the exterior?

  • In these breeds there are a lot of differences, except for color, as is commonly believed. Firstly, there are intrabreed subspecies in both breeds. There are piebald ones in the type and manner of work in Russians and vice versa. But there are global differences.
    1) RGs in the bulk are better dressed. 2) Among them there are fewer vicious, aggressive dogs. 3) Most piebald people like to drive ungulates. 4) Among RGs there are more dogs that do not chase a fox. 5) Most Pieghts have stronger voices. 6) most heavier dogs. 7) RGs are more paraty. 8) RGs are more sensitive, although it was the opposite 30-40 years ago. 9) RGs are more obedient, better trained, more understandable, and Pied pie are more stubborn. 10) Outstanding voices and hounds are more common among Pegih, but complete mediocrity is also more common. RG is more stable in this regard.
    Basically so. But this is not the rule, but as a rule. It depends a lot on the specific ancestors, the more dogs known for their work in the pedigree, the better and more chances for a good hound.
    In the work, Peggye for the most part, more pedestrian, melee, climb (search) are usually shorter, more attached to the track, very viscous and stubborn, with good voices.
    Russians at work, lighter on the foot, look wider and faster, drive faster and more fun, and do not rumble in step, like many Peggyans. Again, there are exceptions both there and there.
  • aadud (San Sanych), RPG and WG differ in color. RPGs - still carry high rut. Well, personally, my opinion is that RPGs are more beautiful (because of the color). Comparing my RPGs with my friends' RP, I see no other differences.
    Zadorov (Roman),

    Most pied pie love to drive ungulates treated. Last year was just "trouble." What dogs primarily found in the climb (wild boars, moose) then they drove. He left the dogs until the morning and more, thank God they came out. He cured along a white path, there was a lot of snow (dogs were swimming), so he chased down dogs or intercepted on skis and weaned them off. This season: pah, pah, pah have never been dumped, although there have already been meetings with both the elk and the wild boar. A friend of the survivor of the WG throws a hare if he meets the elk.

    Among the WG, more dogs not chasing a fox do not agree.

    ) WG more paraty disagree.

    The WGs have more than a few, although 30-40 years ago it was the other way round without comment, here specialists should speak up.

    WGs are more obedient, better trained, more understanding, and Piebald in most are more stubborn. I do not agree. RPGs are normally trained, trained and heated up. The main thing is to love and understand the dog.

    In the work, the pegies, for the most part, more walking, kolasty, climb (search), as a rule, do not agree shorter.

    Pts are viscous and stubborn, with good voices. I agree to everything100, in that RPGs are stubborn and viscous, that's for sure. Slovenian for the RPG race (last year, 1.5 years old), taken out at the shutter (1.5 km) and put into the car, lay down and began to lick its paws. Faded (only distracted), returned back, again prompted the hare and chased in the dark for another three hours. According to the voices: before that, the dogs had voices — you obey, they sang for the gon. Now the eldest resurrection is ordinary, the younger with a gnaw.
    Everything written above, only on the basis of personal experience.

    they are more common among Peggy, but complete mediocrity is also more common. RGs are more stable in this regard. As the saying goes, “a family has its black sheep”, both breeds are no exception. It is also interesting to listen to the opinion of experts.

  • Absolutely dead end and not grateful work to share the ability of Russian pinto hound and Russian hound!
    These are ABSOLUTELY EQUIPPED BREEDS FOR HUNTING qualities.
    This position was held by unrivaled authorities in the knowledge of these breeds, so they taught me and others, which I was more than once convinced of at the exhibition and in the field ...
    Differences only in color. Open the breed standard and look for differences in the STANDARD, and do not listen to the conclusions of individual hunters. (There is still an opinion that the ear of the WG is somewhat smaller and more triangular in shape, which is sometimes noticeable in some populations of the WG).
    The small differences between the different nests, not just what the breeds were and will be, but the correct approach is only through the BREED STANDARD!
  • RPG or WG? I have heard these disputes since childhood. When my grandfather G. Alekseev a hound expert judge, I was taken to all exhibitions and field trials from the age of five. It’s not a thankful job to compare these breeds! Both of these breeds are good. There are no bad dogs, breeds and ... Here are bad hosts.
  • Both breeds are equally created for hunting with them. I also think that comparing them is at least incorrect. I saw both obedient hard workers and lazy boobies both among the WP and the RPG
  • Nikolai Petrovich! Let me disagree! You express an opinion from the books of Markov and Dmitriev, and Shiyan speaks completely differently. About your ear you bent! Read the standard at your leisure.
    Anatoly! I do not express a general (book) opinion, but my personal one, based on the experience and opinions of breeders and experts.
    With respect!
    Zadorov Roman Leonidovich, expert dog handler of the 2nd category for breeds and testing of hounds. Chairman of the field committee of hounds at the KKOS LOOiR (since 2002)
  • I never had my hounds, although I dream, therefore my opinion is subjective. From the fact that I saw more melodic voices met in the WG, and more informative in the RPG. If ever I have to choose, then I will choose the WG. In addition, I like her movements - softer, not as rough and angular as that of an RPG. Andrew
  • Zadorov (Roman), I can “bend”, I have the right, but you have to work hard to unbend, it’s better not your IMHO, but excerpts from the standard, books of eminent racers with pages and so forth, well, as it should be.
    Zadorov Roman Leonidovich, expert dog handler of the 2 categories for breeds and testing of hounds. Chairman of the field committee of hounds in the KKOS LOOiR (since 2002),
    Nice to meet you, but here we also do not slurp cabbage soup ..
    I can safely say that about a dozen true connoisseurs and connoisseurs of hounds on our site are noticeable .. And there are more of them!
    You have submitted, in my eyes, an application to be one of them.
    Nothing personal and respectful Petrovich.

    I’ll say it as it is: I like the river hounds more, they (someone said here) are less angular, generally more graceful.
    Although he didn’t keep it as a pegash (they are less appreciated in our country), in comparison with the visual one they differ from the river hounds.
    1) I agree
    2) My survivor R.G. was very vicious, he didn’t let strangers come to the beaten boar (not a fact).
    3) Both pinto and river hounds quickly learn to drive ungulates.
    4) I can’t say, I haven’t met so many pegashans on hunts.
    5) Yes!
    6) Yes!
    7) and 8) Yes! For this reason, this breed is more welcome with us (whatever the owners of the piebald would say)
    9) and 10) I can not judge (the expert knows best)

  • Based on my own observations, it seems to me that RPG has a stronger voice, but otherwise both breeds are good, if only to work.
  • Zadorov (Roman), Roman only read the Book about RPGs and WGs only 2 weeks ago, so there the hunter writes that the RPGs and WGs are the same, but he prefers RPGs because the Dog is better seen in the Forest and more beautiful and elegant!
    Added after 4 minutes:
    Russian (Oleg), Where did you get that RG smells Better than RPG?! Or maybe it smells better from all taken together Bloodhound.
  • And if you cross the RPG SS WG?
  • Malaya (Andrey), There will be an outbred mestizo, in other words, a mutt .... without documents, possibly working well.
    .For mocking pedigree dogs, dog owners must be punished as stupid experimenters ...: cg:
  • I come to the conclusion that they have the same hunting abilities. There are minor, meager differences.
    Special thanks to the qualified opinion of Zadorov Roman Leonidovich, expert dog handler of the 2nd category for breeds and testing of hounds. Chairman of the field hounds committee at KKOS LOOiR (since 2002).
    However, Roman, judging by the profile, has Russian hounds.
    And in terms of content (an important factor), which is preferable?
  • He kept both of them. He stopped at the WG. Why? Firstly, among the WGs you can still find dogs that do not drive the red beast, which is important. Secondly, they are absolutely clumsy to the hooves, which is also good in my opinion, although recently there are more dogs chasing hooves which is very bad. The RG is smaller and doesn’t eat buckets. Although there are charms and pie. I would, and any hunter, would like to have a medium-sized dog with a beautiful musical voice. For any variations, I would prefer RG .
  • Bunny (Zdislav), There were 2 RPGs and 1 WG, none of them ate buckets and drove only hares, they didn’t even pay attention to the fox, however, the WG drove everything on whose footprint you put it. There was a case when we drove a moose into three dogs and took an elk, but this is an exception to the rule; he himself caught up with hares in the first round. So all this is 50 to 50. And how it eats is mainly I think it depends on the initial content, when the puppies lose their calories, they grow up mainly as zhurnami. But this is my opinion, do not spit strongly in my direction. Most like RPGs, they are prettier or something, but really dogs work almost the same way.
  • aadud (San Sanych), he took a puppy when he lived in Murmansk. And at that time he was faced with the choice of an RPG or an RP - who is better? The hunting experience was only with a friend of the Republic of Lithuania in the Leningrad Region.
    I traveled to the breeders, talked, bought a bunch of books on dogs, read, rummaged through the Internet, but did not reveal a terrible secret, which breed is better))))).
    As a result, he took the WG, two years, by the way, he stood in line, although the piebald could be taken right away.
    Why?
    I don’t know.
    I liked the breeder. Relation to their dogs, their karma or something.
    In general, talk live with local breeders of both breeds, if not scrap, of course.
    Added after 23 minutes:
    Yes, I almost forgot, the pedigree, of course, played an important role)
    And, subsequently, at the exhibition, an expert in another region, after familiarizing himself with the puppy, saw his great-grandfathers and great-grandmothers he knew there)))))

  • Have you forgotten the name of the topic? I remind you Russian hound or Russian pinto hound.
  • Vladimir! Indeed, the guys were distracted. The question was- what breed is better in everyday life? I didn’t keep Pegih, but I’ve been holding the WG for 13 years in the apartment and not one at a time. There are friends holding the RPG bow in the apartment. I will say that the WG in the apartment is more convenient. They are mostly calmer, but the coat is larger. The RPG is larger (although WGs are also not small), wool is usually less, but eat more. I have enough for 6 liters for 3 days. In the aviary, they both eat more, of course. And the difference in content is only in the city. When transporting several dogs in a car and when hunting together, there are more problems with RPGs, especially with survivors, among them there are more vicious people and other dogs, as well as more huge, higher than standard (scourge breeds), massive dogs.

    Greyhound has many colors. All ordinary, common colors of dogs are represented in this breed, with the exception of tan and coffee.

    Therefore, it is not necessary to particularly discuss the colors of Greyhounds. It should only be noted that their red color varies from saturated red to yellow through deer. These variations are due to both the action of the cch gene and the rufus group. Observing a wide variety of spotted greyhounds, Little came to the conclusion that all three alleles of white spotting are present in the breed. The most common of them, he considers sp.

    Distinctive features

    A distinctive feature of the breed is a beast-like species. The Russian hounds are somewhat reminiscent of wolves: head set, jaw, gaze. In general, these are well-built large dogs of an elongated format. At the withers they can reach 68 cm. In this case, the dogs look smart and graceful.

    The breed is not recognized by the International Cynological Organization, so the standard is the same - Russian. It was adopted in 1925 and rewritten in the 60s of the 20th century. At the moment, nurseries care about the cleanliness of the pedigree line in order to achieve international recognition.

    Features of character and behavior

    The Russian hound is a born hunter with a strong freedom-loving character. Such a dog does not begin to flatter itself to everyone, for her the priority is the owner. She will love her family, help people on the hunt. Multifunctionality - not about hounds. They are created only to chase game.

    Such a dog is not suitable for a beginner. For his education and training should be experience and a firm hand. Potters need a leader to follow. Otherwise, the dog will become uncontrollable.

    Breed history

    In Kievan Rus, it has long been customary to go hunting with these large dogs, which work great both in pack mode and singly.

    Today, two subspecies are distinguished in the breed: the Russian pinto hound, it is also often called the English-Russian hound, and also just the Russian hound. In fact, there are no particular differences between dogs.

    Previously, they were not isolated at all in the breed. Although from the time of Kievan Rus, these strong, well-built animals were constantly taken for the game to drive.

    The first breed standard appeared only in 1895. However, at that time in Russia there were few producers with high qualities and characteristics, most puppies were born frankly weak, not suitable for serious shows, and the development of the breed was not observed.

    Once again, the standard was revised and already finally approved in 1951, but so far the FCI has not recognized the breed.

    Often, the Russian hound is confused with Estonian, and no wonder - their color and general features are similar. Both dogs belong to the class hounds.

    Russian pinto hound on the hunt: work in a pack

    At the moment, we can say that the Russian pinto is extremely popular among domestic hunters, but in Europe it is almost never turned on.

    Interesting! In Russia, these dogs were known in the X-XI centuries. They were widely used and called "yap." Pets got such a nickname due to the characteristic, slightly nervous bark, which they begin to publish, attacking the bestial trail.

    Psychology

    To begin with, the Russian pinto hound is a hunting dog, hence the whole specificity of its character, instincts, and behavior appears. In hunting in Russia, in addition to the Russian hound, was used Russian greyhound, which was also called the hound.

    Breeders and dog handlers define the breed as psychologically stable, balanced, with a vivid manifestation of friendliness towards a person.

    This is a true friend, faithful and loyal. Dogs are sincerely attached to the owner, and in his hunting activities they become helpers who have no price. The pursuit of the beast, the corral - these are the skills of the hound at the highest level.

    Russian pinto hound before the hunt

    Children are also kindly treated; sharp attacks of aggression are not characteristic of them and are not observed. The minus is an irresistible craving for hunting, because the dog was created to chase game.

    On a walk, it can easily break loose and run after a cat or other small animals.

    Important! The dog should not be released from the leash, even if it is well trained. The animal can easily run away, therefore it is also not recommended to accompany it to children, more correctly, if the lead is held by an adult.

    The intelligence of the Russian hounds is very high. But, dogs have a strong tendency to be in charge, to dominate the pack. That is why the owner should not forgive the puppies for disobedience, otherwise the authority is very easy to lose, and it is almost impossible to restore it.

    The hounds are trained easily. From the very first days, the young are accustomed to the sound of the hunter's horn, and one of the first acquired skills is unquestioning obedience to the team to leave the prey. Otherwise, the dog will tear the beast on the hunt.

    Application

    The Russian hound looks balanced and dignified, but in fact it is a deceptive impression. Space is vital for the dog, as are shepherd dogs of the type kangala and Groenendaeland hunting instincts cannot be corrupted by any upbringing, because they are the essence of the breed’s character.

    Let's look at the possibilities of application in several ways.

    1. Hunting Assistant. Here the dog is truly indispensable, and such a life will be to her liking. They recommend keeping the animal in the aviary, where it can stretch, run, splash out energy.
    2. Watchman In principle, like any other dog, this one can also be put on a chain. But such an application will result in stress for the pet. For hundreds of years, the Russian hound has been used as a friend and assistant to humans. She used to trust and work with him. Putting on a chain is highly discouraged: the guard will be bad, and the character will deteriorate due to improper maintenance.
    3. A pet. Theoretically, a dog can be kept in an ordinary city apartment. But it will be a torment for her and for the owner. The animal is very active, has a pronounced craving for pursuit, it needs to run. Therefore, aviary content is highly recommended.

    Important! When starting a hunting dog, do not forget about its developed instincts, from which there is no escape. He will chase cats, chase birds and scour hunting for game too. That is why cynologists recommend using the breed for its intended purpose, where it will prove to be excellent.

    Russian hound puppy - still quite a crumb

    How to choose a puppy

    Russian hound puppies in the photo look unusually cute, but they are not simple in content. If you choose the right pet, then it will prove to be excellent both in hunting and during training.

    Otherwise, get a stubborn animal prone to domination. For this reason, only experienced dog breeders recommend starting an animal.

    • Immediately discard those puppies who show obvious physical flaws by the month. Most often, the bulldog's jaw or, conversely, a noticeable lengthening of the upper jaw in comparison with the lower. The wrong taste is a sure sign that degeneration is occurring.
    • The second point is the eyes. Their color is extremely important when choosing a puppy. Ideal is the baby whose eyes are the darkest, hazel. If green prevails, this is a defect by standard. And it is absolutely impossible for the color of the eyes to vary.
    • The third point is the nose. It should not have a pink color. This is a vice, which is called the marbling of flair, and manifests itself as the color of the entire lobe in pink, and only in the central area (it looks like a stain).

    Important! Choose a puppy after he is one month old. All of these defects can appear in the first days, and then go away. But if they survived after a month of age, then they will remain so.

    Quality thoroughbred puppies of the Russian hound

    Finally, it's time to pay attention to the nature of the future pet. Experts advise taking the most active, physically strong puppy, while the size usually does not matter much.

    But what is really important is the proportionality of addition: high-quality Russian pied hounds even at a young age look alright, harmonious.

    Be sure to find out all about the pedigree and the features of the behavior of the ancestors of the future pet. Sometimes cattle can be present in the family - individuals that rush to livestock, usually sheep.

    No less bad, if there were cases of the birth of the silent - dogs that do not cast their voices in the corral of prey. Experts do not recommend taking puppies with such pedigrees. For the dog, characteristic hunting instincts are extremely important, without any glitches.

    That is why, before choosing a puppy, a thorough study of all his ancestors is required.

    Advice! Get to know the babies in the first days of their birth. At this time, you can easily determine how good they have a flair. Blind puppies feel mother’s milk precisely for them. Those who are more active in responding to the emergence of a resurfacing squeal, are drawn to it, have a better scent.

    Combing

    It is recommended to carry out the procedure at least once a week. In this case, you need to use a soft brush that does not disturb the dog, remove all hairs that have fallen out. During molting is used furminator.

    Walking

    You should not trust a procedure that is pleasant for such an active pet for children.The dog can run at any moment, so the child simply can not cope.

    Moreover, the animals are very strong and strong. By nature, the Russian hounds are friendly to their own, but extremely hostile to all strangers, which greatly complicates walking. Recommended use harness for dogs while walking.

    The best option for walking the dog is in the forest or field

    But the dog can be released outside the city and let it run freely, so you should not have a pet in the city. But if you still take a chance, never let go of the leash.

    Nutrition

    In a dog, the process of digesting food takes about 8 hours, and if it is given food only once a day, most of the time the animal will be hungry.

    That is why the prescribed amount of food should be divided into 2-4 doses. Focus on your pet’s preferences: some people like to eat better after a night’s sleep, and some, on the contrary, prefer to have a tight dinner. The volume of each portion depends on this.

    Now about the diet. Since the breed is hunting, fresh meat and, as a special treat, a juicy beef bone are in the first place.

    Small and hollow bones, such as chicken, completely exclude dogs from the menu. Milk cereals and vegetables are also important. Turn on sometimes dry foodbut without fanaticism.

    • sweets and smoked meats,
    • fatty pork meat
    • spice,
    • salt,
    • vinegar.

    Health

    The dogs have good health, this is due to the specifics of the breed. After all, Russian hunting often took place in the cold season, therefore, faithful companions of the person required good training and excellent immunity.

    If you keep the animal properly and rationally fed, no diseases will arise.

    Characteristic diseases

    Despite good health, the breed still has some tendency to certain problems.

    Among the characteristic hounds of Russian diseases can be identified:

    • Degenerative myelopathy is dangerous for the elderly and is expressed in the disease of the spinal cord. The dog begins to lose coordination, the back of the body falls to the sides, the animal falls on its hind legs. There is no pain.
    • Malignant hypertension is a common negative reaction of a dog to general anesthesia.
    • Hip dysplasia is usually a congenital joint problem that can only be diagnosed in a one-and-a-half-year-old puppy.

    Vaccinations

    All vaccination activities are carried out in the same way as in any other thoroughbred dogs, with the exception of animals, which for some reason require an individual schedule.

    On average, the first vaccination the dog receives after a month of life. Veterinarians recommend that such puppies be vaccinated against plague and repeat the procedure after at least 2 weeks.

    It remained a mystery how the breed arose. From the pre-revolutionary "efforts," according to the author himself, almost nothing remained. How did it all “get laid back” and become a breed, and even national pride? Whoever first gets to know the breed has not read the classics, and A. Kuzyaev himself is unlikely to have understood something.
    What is the point of printing an article in a book-journal format in such a “sequi-sequistered” form, and even with illustrations that raise more questions than help to comprehend the text.
    A. Kuzyaev has a 24-page section of his book devoted to Russian pie. Everything is more or less clear and logical there. Someone will accept, someone will be interested and go further in their understanding of the breed, someone, of course, will remain unsatisfied.
    And of course, such articles must necessarily affect the current state of the breed. And then, probably, to Sipeikin. In any case, his reports from the exhibitions and the design are good and the content!

    I think the article from the archive, "smacks of mothballs." :)
    Most likely, the period of the beginning of the 90s, when there was a heated debate about the return of the ANGLO-RUSSIAN hound to its historical name in connection with the RENAME, but not the creation of a new breed, in the RUSSIAN PED KEY Hound. On December 28, 1994, the Presidium of the RFOS even approved the standard of the Anglo-Russian hound, but A. Kuzyaev united his supporters and at a meeting in the MOOiR with a majority of votes managed to defend the Russian quail.

    There were many publications on this subject, but the point in the dispute was put by Oleg Yegorov from St. Petersburg, having published in the almanac “Hunting Spaces”, book 4 (30) 2001, an excellent article “Once Again on“ Motley ”and“ French Buns, ”which A. Kuzyaev left unanswered.

    I tried to find this article in electronic form on the Internet, to give a link to it, but could not find it.

    Sabaneev is of the opinion that Glebov in his pack used blood, including the Stackhounds, deer hounds. they were taller.
    Unfortunately now I can’t say for sure which page it is printed on.

    Now this article is published here.

    Alexander Arapov:
    “A. Kuzyaev’s section of his book devoted to Russian pie is 24 pages long. Everything is more or less clear and logical there. Someone will accept, someone will be interested and go further in their understanding of the breed, someone, of course, will remain unsatisfied.
    And of course, such articles must necessarily affect the current state of the breed. And then, probably, to Sipeikin. In any case, his reports from the exhibitions and the design are good and the content! ”

    I don’t read San Sanych, A. Kuzyaev fundamentally - I had a chance to discuss with him and this is quite enough for me. If you think that in the book “everything is more or less clear and logical,” tell me, WHO and WHEN decided to create a new breed - the Russian pinto. Indeed, as follows from the definition of the concept of "breed", presented here by the author at the very beginning of the article, it is "relatively numerous, holistic, stable, consolidated, artificially created by man. ".

    As for the respected Viktor Petrovich Sipeikin.
    Unfortunately over the years, and in my eyes, he lost his authority. Either he grew old, or I “outgrew” him in my knowledge. In order not to be unfounded, a few examples:
    - at the last 60th Anniversary Tver Regional Exhibition, being an expert in the ring of Russian hounds, Viktor Petrovich arranged the dogs so that among those present they caused a rumble of disapproval and the withdrawal of dogs from the ring to the description. ,
    - Yes, from a literary and artistic point of view, the reports seem interesting, but from a professional point of view. Here is a quote from the report on the hounds competitions in memory of N.P. Kishensky in 2018: “If we talk about the effectiveness of the competitions taking into account the number of drafts, then it is 16.4%. The main reason for the relatively low performance of the competition should be considered a large number of dogs that were left without lifting - out of 61 drops 30 times the dogs did not find the beast. " What kind of dogs were they, who were put directly on the trail or of a re-created beast and they did not find it, or is it still the fault of the author of the Report. ,
    - after the Tver Hounds BB in 2007, Victor Petrovich indicated in the report that today there is no way to make an analysis on the linear breeding of hounds, and this is not necessary. No comments.

    By the way, as far as I know (read on the internet), V.P.Sipeykin was the author of the draft standard for RPGs, which was transferred to FCI and was not recognized.


    I’ve been trying to add this comment for several days. It turned out only today and this way.

    Valentin Lvovich, I will answer briefly, since we have already discussed some issues.
    I admit, Kuzyaev was chasing the book at one time, because he had not yet been “caught up” in the appropriate way. In the commentary, I compared this article, in which nothing is clear at all with the chapter from the book, in which at least some factual material. I have already said that some of the chapters from the books of Kuzyaev and Kazan are absolutely identical. Just look at the material about Glebov’s dogs. About Glebovsky dogs, if possible, I will answer P. Kozlov's comment.
    Of course, everything is replaced by an article by Oleg Egorov about the English-Russian hound, under which there is also my comment. There, the article more than convincingly shows "who is where and when."
    According to the reports of V.P. Sipeikin. Probably, they really interested me from a literary, artistic and aesthetic point of view.
    According to the materials sent to FCI, I don’t know anything. I believe that the work of registering the Anglo-Russian hound in this organization is currently an absolutely empty lesson, as it is not regrettable and Sipeikin is not to blame for this. But that's another story.

    Knitting

    Mating Russian pinto hounds occurs in the same way as other dogs. Both the survivor and the survivor must be sexually mature, with high breed characteristics.

    It is not recommended to knit a bitch in the first estrus. The optimal age of the producers is 3-6 years, in dogs older, offspring with pronounced defects can appear.

    With proper maintenance and competent education, the Russian hound will be an excellent partner in the hunt and the most faithful, sincerely devoted friend. Love your dog and listen to her, and then strong, reliable relationships and the joy of mutual communication are guaranteed!

    Russian hound: An ideal dog for those who love hunting, and not only

    Russian hound is an excellent breed bred specifically for the effective pursuit of game in almost any terrain. But due to its nature, such a dog will be an excellent pet.

    Socialization

    From the age of three months, you can start raising a puppy. It is very important to instill qualities such as courage. Communication with peers is a fundamental point: sitting alone, the puppy will never learn to defend itself.

    The main course of training will help you get used to other people. Special training programs, specifically for hunting dogs, will lay the foundations of hunting skills: not to be afraid of barking, loud sounds of a shot and a hunting horn, to be able to grab game correctly.

    If the family has a small child, you need to carefully monitor how he communicates with a four-legged friend. A puppy, having sensed a threat from a small person, can bark and even bite for self-defense. A puppy growing up with a child will be more loyal to him.

    Features of care and maintenance

    An ideal option for keeping a Russian pinto is a private house with a vast adjoining territory. The apartment is not suitable as a place of permanent residence. The Russian pinto hound tolerates cold well thanks to its thick undercoat. If the dog is kept on the street, then for the winter the booth is additionally insulated.

    Grooming

    An unpretentious Russian pinto hound does not need careful grooming. Wash with shampoo should be no more than once every two months. The presence of a thick undercoat minimizes combing. It is enough to do this once every two weeks. On warm days, the dog can swim in open water, which she does with pleasure.

    Claw care is not required if the Russian piebald spends most of its life on the street.Claws grind naturally.

    Ear care is important especially in the spring and summer. It is necessary to examine the inner surface of the ears for ticks. There are protective sprays against bloodsucking insects. Using them, you can prevent or minimize risk.

    Dental care includes examining the mouth once a week. It is recommended to brush your dog’s teeth with special toothpaste. As natural cleaners the dog is offered to eat tomatoes, apples, sinewy seeds.

    Advantages

    1. The main advantage of the breed is considered excellent hunting qualities.
    2. The hounds are fast, agile, strong, and well trained. They easily track prey and help in its capture.
    3. Hardy for long hunting and temperature extremes.
    4. A separate plus is a loud voice.
    5. They can work both independently and in a pack.
    6. Balanced, calm, do not have obvious aggression towards people.
    7. Loyal to their family, like to spend time with the owner.
    8. Suitable for jogging, cycling, rollerblading, can play with older children.

    Hounds get along well with other dogs, especially hunting ones. They easily get along with them in the same house, aviary, yard. They have outstanding mental abilities, which allows them to be easily trained.

    Disadvantages

    • The nature of the breed is difficult. They are freedom-loving and arrogant, they know their worth. Rarely become ideal obedient dogs.
    • They consider themselves to be the main ones in the house, they only listen to the owner (with a good upbringing).
    • Tricky, wayward manipulators for whom the rules are not written.
    • Not suitable for apartment living. Too active. Some breeders argue that such an animal can only be kept in an aviary, and it must be walked on a leash.
    • Hounds are prone to escape due to their enthusiasm for game, often lost on the hunt.
    • A loud voice is a good adaptation in the forest, but at home it can become an irritant. Potters are talkative, can howl and bark.
    • They do not have much aggression towards a person, but they are touchy and will not tolerate boorish treatment, even from children.
    • Such dogs will protect themselves from strangers. As security guards, they are not particularly suitable, but they will definitely bark at strangers.

    They do not like small animals: cats, birds, rodents. They get along badly with them, they chase them on the street.

    Care and maintenance

    Hunting dogs do not need soft sunbeds, large rooms and comfort. They get along well both in the aviary and in the booth in the yard. The only prohibition is chain content. Dogs are very active and cannot sit in one place. A city apartment is not the best place for hounds, a country house with a large adjacent territory is best.

    In general, the dog is not a problem. She does not need haircuts, combing, frequent bathing. The hounds eat everything that the owner offers them, they do not differ in particular soreness. This is the perfect pet for an experienced hunter who needs a loyal friend and helper.

    Before buying a puppy, you need to prepare a place for him. It is clear that the first 2-3 months of life, the pet will not be able to live on the street, it needs special care and care. Therefore, it is worth allocating a place for the dog indoors, installing bowls for food, purchasing toys and hygiene products.

    Diseases

    The diseases most often affected by Russian hounds are:

    1. Hip dysplasia (a disease that occurs with excessive loads on the hind limbs, is incurable, manifests itself in the form of lameness and deformation of the paws),
    2. Myelopathy (a hereditary disease caused by damage to the cells of the spinal cord),
    3. Myositis (inflammation of the muscles of the neck, shoulders, nodules form, which lead to acute pain),
    4. False rabies (central nervous system disorder),
    5. Dermatitis
    6. Allergic reactions
    7. Conjunctivitis.

    Hair care

    The Russian hound is absolutely unpretentious in leaving. She has a short, stiff coat, molts 2 times a year.

    • Comb out such dogs 2 times a week with a brush with a hard natural pile, massaging the skin to improve blood flow.
    • Bathe animals rarely. Enough 1 time per year. If the dog lives in the house, then three times swimming is allowed. If the pet is very dirty, they wipe it with a damp towel or pour it over with warm water.
    • Claws need to cut 1 time per month.
    • Eyes and ears inspected regularly, cleaned as it gets dirty.
    • Teeth cleaned from plaque 2 times a month, you can give the dog chewing bones.
    • You should often check the skin for allergic reactions and dermatitis.
    • In the warm season treated for ticks and fleas.

    Highlights in Training

    These dogs are hunters genetically and temperamentally. They are serious, stubborn and independent. To raise a good pet you need to have a strong character. A beginner can’t cope with such a dog.

    You need to train such a dog with 3-4 monthsBut to educate - from birth. The pet should know that the person in the house is in charge and must be obeyed. To do this, you can not let the puppy jump on the master's furniture, beg, manipulate, whine for no reason. The owner always needs to remain a leader and show it to the dog. But you can not resort to rude methods: to beat a pet, to insult, humiliate. To show the hound that she is wrong, you can pull at the collar, deprive of goodies or eating.

    A hunting dog needs to complete several training courses at a training school. If the animal lives in the city, then the basis will be the training “Dog in the city”. In addition, the hound must be trained to hunt correctly: do not kill or bite the game, listen to the owner and sound signals (whistle, trumpet, pops).

    The main commands are learned by the puppy after he remembered his nickname. TO 4 months the dog must respond to its name, know the schedule of walking and feeding, respond to the main commands: “It is impossible”, “Place”. Then you can train reflex reactions to other words: “Sit”, “Voice”, “Quiet”.

    Feeding

    The Russian pinto hound is extremely active and physically strong. To ensure the normal functioning of the animal, they make up a menu that will completely satisfy the body in microelements, vitamins, nutrients. When feeding with natural products, the main part is given to meat. A Russian quail hound needs it daily. Offal is also suitable. But the liver, kidneys are given in boiled form to avoid infection by worms.

    Meat (including offal)MilkCrackers
    Eggs (only yolk)ButterCereal porridge
    FishVegetable oilVegetables
    Fresh blood from slaughtered animalsSour creamFruit
    Dairy products

    Every day, the pet is given a bite to eat large bone raw. To replenish the vitamin reserve offer vegetables, fruits, herbs.

    List of prohibited products:

      Fatty dishes. Egg white. Smoked meats. Pickles. Citrus. Confectionery. Chocolate. Legumes Tubular bird bones.

    When using dry granular feed, the animal must constantly have access to water.

    How much do Russian pinto hounds puppies cost

    There are no official kennels involved in the mass breeding of these dogs. To purchase a hound puppy, you can contact private breeders. The price of a baby is from 3 to 20 thousand rubles.

    The hound will become a true friend to a real hunter. A working dog aimed at hunting will not become a good guard at home or a nanny companion for a child. If the purpose of the purchase is other than hunting, it is better to abandon the acquisition of Russian pie.
