Transcript of team four "dogs" final

Afghan hound is a hound that is one of the oldest dog breeds in existence. Distinguished by its thick, fine, silky coat and its tail with a ring curl at the end, the breed acquired its unique features in the cold mountains of Afghanistan
The Afghan Hound is tall, standing in height 24–29 inches and weighing 45–60 pounds.They were also called "Persian Greyhounds" by the English, in reference to their own indigenous sight hound.
Afghan Hounds were the most popular in Australia in the 1970s

The temperament of the Afghan Hound is aloof and dignified, but happy and clownish when playing. The breed has the reputation of being the least intelligent dog breed. The Afghan Hound has many cat-like tendencies and is not slavish in its obedience as are some other breeds.
The long topknot and the shorter-haired saddle on the back of the dog are distinctive features of the Afghan Hound coat. The high hipbones and unique small ring on the end of the tail are also characteristics of the breed.
The Afghan hound has a leaning towards independence. Owners should not be surprised if their Afghan hounds sometimes choose to ignore commands. Although seldom used today for hunting in Europe and America where they are popular, Afghans are frequent participants in lure coursing events and are popular as show dogs.

German Shepherd
The Staffordshire Bull Terrier or ‘Staffy’ is an intelligent, medium sized, short haired dog. A Staffys colouring can be a full coat of red, fawn, white, black, blue or brindle, with or without markings. Staffys are generally very muscular for their size and they were originally bred for bull-boating. They are now predominantly kept as a family pet.
Staffy’s have a smooth, short haired coat which is easy to maintain. It is recommended that their coat is brushed once a week with a firm bristle brush followed by a rub down with towel or chamois for extra shine. Staffy’s should be bathed once in the colder months and twice a month in the warmer months if necessary. Additional attention should be paid to the teeth, gums, eyes, ears, paws, claws, genitals and anus to ensure their cleanliness and health remains at a good standard.
Staffordshire Bull Terrier
Dobermans are a medium sized muscular dog and whilst they are predominantly found black, they can also be brown, blue and fawn and all 4 colourings have rust tan markings. They have a lifespan of 8-10 years, and are very intelligent and faithful. Their fur is smooth, short, hard and sleek. Their height can range from 65-70cms and their build means that they are capable of reaching high running speeds. Following the design of its body, a Dobermans head and skull is long and sleek. They have almonds shaped eyes and small neat ears high on their head. When their tail is not docked, it appears as a continuation of the spine without any kinks.
While they may look aggressive, Dobermans actually make for a very loyal, protective and trustworthy family companion. They are highly intelligent, easy to train and due to their appearance, many people take advantage of these characteristics by training them to become protective guard dogs. Determined, bold and assertive while working, they are highly skilled and versatile. Being bold by nature, Dobermans need an owner who is not afraid to take charge. Once all family members are able to display an authority over the dog by being firm, confident and consistent, they can become a great family dog.
The Doberman is an average shedder and requires little grooming. This would involve an occasional bath or rub down with a damp cloth. Due to the fact that they have a tendency to form callouses on their elbows, owners are able to minimise this with the application of baby oil to prone areas.

An Afghan hound requires a lot of grooming attention. Daily brushing is ideal, but most people do not have time to brush their dog daily and it becomes a weekly event. The Afghan has a long silky, soft fine coat and mats easily. An Afghan should be groomed every 4 weeks to keep up with toe nail trimming and ears cleaned, hair between the pads shaved and sanitary trim




The Border Collie is very energetic, attentive, agile and a good working dog. Their coats are either smooth or of medium length with a thick resistant undercoat. They are great for herding sheep. They use their eyes to guide a herd without the need to nip or bark.

They are lively, hard working and smart and they need to be occupied. If they are not kept busy they will get into mischief. They are extremely loyal to their owner and sensitive to their owner’s cues. As a puppy if they haven’t been socialised and exposed to different people and places they can become shy and fearful.

Maintaining a Border Collie is easy. They require brushing once a week to keep coat oils well distributed and may require more brushing in shedding season to minimise hair around the house. Cleaning their teeth two to three times a week will help with tartar build up and bacteria. They only requiring washing about every four months or if they are dirty or are smelling bad. Trimming nails can be done each month if required. Weekly examinations are also recommended to check for any signs of infections, redness, discharge or tenderness.

Border Collie
Dogs are said to be mans best friend. They are amazing animals with outstanding skills and the ability to sense human emotions. They are lifetime loyal companions, instant exercise companions, and provide us with unconditional love. Dogs are also great fun, they make us laugh and they are always pleased to see us when we come home.

This presentation introduces the German Shepherd , Afghan Hound, Doberman, Staffordshire Bull Terrier and Border Collie. It will discuss aspects such as the description, personality, and grooming for each of these dogs.

We hope you enjoy this presentation.
The German Shepherd is almost wolf like in appearance. It is a muscular and alert dog with a noble and aloof attitude. The German shepherd colouring is mostly black, ash, and iron grey with yellow or light brown markings. They have a life span of 12 – 14 years. Originally bred for herding, they are now used extensively for guard and protection work.

The German Shepherd is known throughout the world for its loyalty, trustworthiness, intelligence and affinity for people. These qualities have made the German Shepherd one of the most popular breeds of companion dog throughout the world. They require a great deal of mental stimulation, and respond well to training, especially voice commands. It is important for the German Shepherd to be socialized with other dogs from a young age to avoid unruly behaviour.

Contrary to popular belief, the Staffy is an extremely affectionate and intelligent breed. Their friendly nature makes them great for a committed owner/family, but not so great as a guard dog – Staffy’s thrive on human contact. They are a very boisterous and active breed who prefers to live indoors. Their energetic character can come across as “too much” for other dogs and humans, hence why it is important to have them trained.
Mans best friend comes in all shapes and sizes. Personalities differ from each breed. Hopefully a basic understanding of “mans best friend’ was gained from this presentation. Whatever the future holds, it will most definitely move forward with our loyal companions by our sides.

German shepherds should be brushed vigorously every day to remove dead or loose hairs. Shepherds are a shedding dog, the more they are brushed, the less they will shed. No trimming of the coat is required. Bathing should only be carried out when necessary. Grooming is important for hygiene, and protects against skin conditions. Grooming involves looking at every part of the dog - skin, teeth, ears, eyes and nails.
