The Eurasier Philosophy

One healthy puppy bred within the IFEZ

The Eurasier is a wonderful dog breed. We must try to ensure to keep it that way. The German Eurasier clubs where the breed originates have strict breeding rules to ensure good health and a sound temperament.

Breeding may only be oriented on the improvement of the breed. and only then when there is a demand for the puppies and the puppies will already have qualified homes when they are born.

A Eurasier breeder never gains any income from his breeding. In German clubs breeders are hobby breeders.only and are solely allowed to keep two females for breeding. All breeding data is kept in a general database which ensures general tracking of individual Eurasiers’ Puppy Interactiondata and enables the breeding officials of the club to offer the best suggestions for mating.

Eurasiers must be kept in an environment which allows them to be close to their human pack. They cannot be kept in kennels and it can be very difficult to temporarily board them with third parties for vacations, etc. Due to the fact that they need close family contact, they should not be left alone either for a whole work day. They would be unhappy. The Eurasier lives with his human pack as a family member

The Eurasier owner gives his dog the chance to encounter his surroundings during daily walks and makes sure that he will be able to have social contacts with other people and dogs.

Another special feature of the Eurasier community are Eurasier Walks and Eurasier Meeting where owners and their dogs meet for nice walks and enjoy a good time together with their dogs.

The IFEZ World Association

The International Federation of Eurasier Breeding is an alliance of Eurasier Clubs whose members feel a special obligation to ensure the welfare of the Eurasier breed. The clubs are all members of the FCI via their national Kennel Clubs and therefore guarantee sound breeding practices. The IFEZ was founded in February of 1996, based on a suggestion of the “Zuchtgemeinschaft fuer Eurasier” (ZG), one of the three German clubs of origin of the breed. The goal was to unite as many clubs as possible within Europe to breed Eurasiers on a high standard under observation of strict rules. The chairmanship rotates bi-annually. Currently the IFEZ represents more than 6,000 Eurasier friends which is more than half of all Eurasier club members in all of Europe

The individual clubs exchange breeding relevant data of those Eurasiers bred within their clubs which is gathered in a database creating the greatest possible pool of information concerning health and behavior of the dogs. This data is used in modern breeding programs which are used for the breeding assessment of Eurasiers and planned breeding.

Since 1999 each Eurasier puppy that was bred in a member club of the IFEZ is being issued a special certificate confirming that the puppy stems from a club that observes the strict rules outlined by the IFEZ.

By means of this certificate it is easy to differentiate between genuine Eurasiers stemming from those IFEZ member clubs and possible dissident breeders who might cross Chow Chows, Samoyeds and Wolfspitz and sell them under the “Eurasier” name.

The rules outlined by the IFEZ are:

The Eurasier is sold with papers issued by a club that is member of the FCI.

  • · The Eurasier was bred from breeders that are maintaining a high standard.
  • · The parents of the puppy were screened for hip dysplasia, patellar luxation and eye disease.
  • · The parents passed an assessment that qualifies them for breeding which is performed by a breeding specialist of the club (Koermeister) or a specialty judge.
  • · The determination of what bitch is bred to what stud is based on scientifically based breeding assessment with the goal to breed healthy and robust Eurasier with a sound character.
  • · Breeding for commercial purposes is not permitted.
  • · The homes of the breeders and the raising of the puppies is being checked by breeding specialists of the clubs.
  • · The puppies are raised within the family and are therefore socalized very early with people and their environment.

In November 2005 the IFEZ founded the „International Federation for Eurasier Breeding – World Association“ and signs a cooperation agreement between the Federation Cynologique Internationale (FCI) and the IFEZ World Association for Eurasiers. One of our B litter puppies

This world association strives to look after the Eurasier breed which it represents on a world wide scale based on its codes and the FCI standard No 291 which includes the application of and the compliance with the FCI standard and the goal to maintain the health and temperament characteristics. It is of importance to the IFEZ World Association that everywhere in the world the Eurasier is kept as a family dog and is bred in accordance with the standard
