    The Jagdterrier

    "Overview of the Jagdterrier, German Hunting Terrier, yagdterier
    by Compo"

    The Jagdterrier is one of the most used types of terriers used in central Europe, the breed in general is known to be extremely hard and unbelievably game terrier, like in most countries especially with terriers of this type of quality the breeders all lay claim to have the better quality and game type of terriers in their respective countries which is just human nature to think this way but if we really knuckle down and take a real close look at the breed in the different countries we might just find out whether there is some truth in their brag statements.

    In looking at the breed in Italy, they have some really nice type of Jagdterriers, excellent stamp of terriers but feel that they lack the gameness and hardness, of course it's not the dogs fault that the Italians breeders are more focused on the terriers appearance than anything else..not like some of the Jagdterriers in their neighboring countries but the Italians do some cracking types.

    The Jagdterriers in the colder countries like Slovakia and Poland etc... breed a more aggressive type of terrier because they don't really have restrictions on what they can or can't hunt, so the terriers in these countries are bred 100% on pure gameness so when your hunting on bigger game such as badger it's real easy to separate the wheat from the chaff so to speak, but they breed a really rough hard game terrier.

    The Jagdterriers in France and Germany, well I feel that the Germans Jagdterriers bred for both type appearance and lack the gameness, but also feel that they produce a much bigger type of terrier, but to see how popular these Jagdterriers really are, all one has to do is attend a terrier hunt/field show in France or Germany and see the amount of entries are just staggering, an extremely popular terrier, don't get me wrong the Germans and the French do have some really cracking types but feel that a majority are lacking the gameness and hardness and are a more taller type of terrier than some of their neighboring countries but in saying that, If I was thinking about importing a Jagdterrier I defiantly be looking at some of the breeders in France and Germany because their stamp of Jagdterriers are excellent. I like to have a good intelligent game terrier to hunt with but I also like to have a really nice one, makes it all worth while.

    The are very few Jagdterriers in Ireland and the UK, I know there are few dogs being exported to the UK in 2010 but I believe these are going to be used in a breed program as various crosses which should be real interesting to see how they go, but these little dogs are as hard as nails, if the UK breeders have success in producing Jadg crosses small enough to go to ground, they will be a force to be reconed with and have no doubt the UK and Irish lads will test them below ground.

    The Jagdterriers are starting to make some ground here in the USA and becoming very popular among the hogs, raccoon and coyotes hunters, the USA should suit these dogs really well because there really is no better testing ground than the USA to put any terrier to the test with the range of game we have such as 15 to 60lb raccoons, 12 to 25lb Nutria, can you imagine a 12 to 25lb rat coming at you on a dump or tip head.. a real nice test for the dogs and then we have the coyotes which I feel are definitely a test for the German Hunting Terrier, especially an adult coyote ranging from 30–34 inches and weighing in at 15 to 46lbs, then of course we have the wild boar/hog etc... so the USA is a great country to put any terrier to the test no matter what the breed but the Jagdterriers or German Hunting Terrier as they are also known, are starting to make a bit of a name for themselves on the hunt scene with a few imports starting to come in, the breed itself is doing really well but feel that the overall quality of the dogs bewing brought into this country, both in gamness and type are definitely not up to par when compared to their European cousins.

    There has been a bit of talk going around among the terrier hunting world that there are a few cracking bred German Hunting Terriers being imported into the USA in 2010, ther'ye meant to be from some of the finest in breed type and from seriously game bred stock, these dogs are coming in from the Serbian regions which will be great thing for the breed here in the USA..

    When looking at the breed, there are some great differences in the quality, many of the first dogs that were imported to the USA, a majority of them were yappy type terriers, we all know that it's fair to say that a yappy terrier is an excited terrier, but the true fact is the yappy terrier is also an uncertain type terrier lacking the ability to push forward and engage, because of this they give a safe distance between themselves and the game and revert to yapping. If you are one of those fortunate enough to see the real good German Hunting Terriers work in these European countries, you already know there is very no yapping going on once the terrier is slipped will drive forward and will not stop until the job is done, so when you manage to get to your dog, your either going to find that that dog has done it's job or possibly a dead or injured dog, but I can tell you by personal experience the good quality German Hunting Terriers will not turn tail or start yapping, maybe a little excited whimper at first, but once slipped, complete silence.

    Before ending this article, I must also mention that if you are going to purchase a terrier, go to the people who work their dogs, because if they see something in a line that they don't like...such as the an uncertain yappy type terrier, they'll nip it in the bud and simply wont breed from that line, a good terrier person knows exactly what type of terrier they need to get the job done and I personally think the USA hunters are going to see a very different type of German Hunting Terrier in 2010-2011
