Information about the breed of the dog

Breeding began when dogs and humans first began to coexist. To answer the question “How did breeding begin?” you must distinguish between simply breeding for more dogs and selective breeding for certain traits.

Early humans knew nothing about genetics, but they were observant. It was easy enough to tell when one dog out performed another during a hunt. This dog may have received extra food, allowing it to pass its genes on to the next generation. This was accidental selective breeding at its finest. Dogs that supplement this early lifestyle survive and thrive.

This early breeding was important in the development of the domesticated dog. Survivors learned to look to humans for food, security, and affection. A dog will watch a human to learn what to do, while a wolf will try to figure things out on its own. It’s not something the dog learns, it’s just something he does.

As people’s lives have changed, so have dogs. Farmers, shepherds and hunters needed specific qualities in the dogs they used to perform tasks. The hunting dog is a poor substitute for the herding dog. At this stage there were basic types of dogs, but not specific breeds. Appearance was also of little importance. While the dog was good at its task, it was used to produce more pups that would be as good, maybe even better, than its parents.

The oldest known breeds are all useful dogs such as hunting, herding and pack dogs. Over time, they began to develop a similar appearance and behavior, and the dog breed was born.

The Victorian era was a period of creativity. This included the breeding of dogs. The majority of modern breeds were developed during this time. This is also the time when people begin to develop an interest in pets. Before this period, people didn’t keep dogs around because of their cute and cuddly appearance. Small, fluffy dogs emerged as status symbols. Think of the Victorians as the first purse dog breeders and you have a modern connection to an old fashion.

Breeding continues today and in some cases has created controversy. For example, the breeding of pit bulls to become more vicious has led to many of the breed being banned in cities around the world. Also, some people are not happy with keeping exotic puppies like labradoodles. I expect this form of breeding to continue for quite a long time.

Today, most dogs are pets. There are still working dogs, but the majority of dogs are human companions. They are flexible enough to occupy a niche in people’s lives, regardless of the society and time period in which they live.
