Animals have been always been a life-long passion of mine, with dogs at the top of the list. My family always had purebred dogs of various breeds, but it wasn't until I discovered the Eurasier that I knew I had found my breed. I have since been involved with the Eurasier breed for almost 10 years, currently serve as the Secretary for the Eurasier Club of Canada and had my first litter in 2021.
Eurasiers are my hobby and I take great pride in learning about the breed, raising, training and exhibiting my dogs and sharing them with others. I have exhibited my dogs in a variety of venues with great levels of success, but the greatest win of all is spending quality time and coming home with the best dogs!
The Eurasier Way
The Eurasier was originally developed by a group of people with the same idea in mind: to create a loving, family companion that still had the look and behaviours of a "natural" dog. Therefore, it’s origins are quite different from many of the other breeds we see today, particularly those developed for working, herding or hunting.
So what does this mean? The Eurasier was never meant to be anything but a family companion that lives in its owners home and is with them constantly. They were never intended to live in kennels with limited contact with their owners. Just as it would be unfair to deprive a herding breed an outlet for its genetic instinct, it is equally unfair to deprive a Eurasier of its genetic instinct to bond and be close with its family.
Therefore, the Eurasier community that has been built around the world largely follows this notion. Eurasier breeders are hobbyists who love the breed and have a desire to preserve these dogs and share them with others. They breed Eurasiers for the love of the breed and to protect it, rather than produce puppies for profit on a large or commercial scale. The puppies grow up in the breeders' homes and are able to learn how to be the perfect companion to its people!
Throughout the Eurasier's life, it should be a valued member of the family. They want to relax with you on the couch, or tag along on outings and trips. Additionally, when the Eurasier is “retired” from breeding, it should stay with its family, not be rehomed or otherwise disposed of. While the Eurasier must eventually retire from breeding as it gets older, they never retire from their primary purpose of family companion.
There are many other aspects of ethical, responsible breeding, including appropriate health testing, conformation and structural evaluation etc. But the way Eurasiers are raised and cared for is just as important in order to truly preserve the Eurasier breed and its heritage. This is not to say that other methods of breeding and raising dogs are wrong or that this is the only way, but it is the Eurasier Way.
