but also these four-legged friends are homemade... in times of overbreeding and not species appropriate animal husbandry abroad more and more four-legged friends want dog breeds, which come from their homeland. german dogs are considered robust, loyal and teachable. The FCI (Federation Cynologique International) has divided our dog breeds into the following groups:
FCI Group 1: Herding and driving dogs
German shepherd dog

Ape pinscher dog monkey pinscher
Tousled hair, a cuddly face and penetrating brown eyes: this is the Affenpinscher, one of the oldest dog breeds in Germany. He and Griffons are often confused. The differences are: The catch of the monkey pinscher is not bent upwards as with the Griffon and he has a pronounced hunting instinct when he picks up the trail of rats or mice.

This noble race originated already in the 16th to 17th century and was at that time often a gift of a royal house to another. The stately appearance of the Great Dane was achieved by crossing with greyhound breeds. It is not only optically a giant, but also in the interior. The Great Dane has a big heart and gets on equally well with children and cats. Since it is very affectionate, the Great Dane hates being alone and is less suitable for full-time professionals.
The mixture of shepherd dog, hunting dog and Greyhound is met with humility by many. No wonder! The Doberman, with his height at the withers of 72 centimetres and the teeth-bleeding film image, is hailed as fearsome because he is often used as a trained watchdog. But with the right education the Doberman is a faithful and exemplary companion.

Rehpinscher, Zwergpinscher, German Pinscher
The little ball of fur is for cuddling. But Pinscher also have - not without reason - the image of the little barker. Thanks to their size of 25 to 30 cm and a weight of 3 to 6 kg, they fit perfectly into their mistress's handbag, while the active black-brown Fiffi runs much better.
In the area around Rottweil, they reproduced with native species comrades and were used as "Rottweiler Metzgerhunde" for the protection of cattle. The Rottweiler has a faithful and friendly nature, but can also bite down. Thus it is led in areas like Bavaria, Brandenburg, Hamburg, North Rhine-Westphalia as a list dog.
Dog Giant Schnauzer

The miniature schnauzer has a moustache and bushy eyebrows that make him look sour, but he is a friendly fellow.

FCI Group 7: pointing dogs
Most breeders give the handsome four-pounder to hunters because his education requires experience and know-how. If its pronounced protective instinct and its urge to move are properly developed, the silverback with its amber eyes is also a friendly companion dog.
In contrast to the Kleiner Münsterländer, the up to 65 cm high and 30 kg heavy Große Münsterländer is not brown but white with black plates. It likes to run, is reliable and obedient. Already its ancestors were used for hunting feathered game. Until today he likes to accompany hunters.

He is intelligent and even in the senior age still playful. Large poodles bark however gladly. He needs more movement than a dwarf poodle, but not more space and can also be kept in an apartment. In addition, the so-called water dog is a dog breed, which is suitable for animal hair allergy sufferers (more allergy dogs can be found here).
