Title : BASIC PARAMETERS OF ANGULARITY AND BIOSTATIC MODEL OF THE BOSNIAN BROKEN-HAIRED HOUND – BARAK
Abstract : Bosnian broken-haired hound called Barak belongs to a large group of hound dogs. Barak is indigenous breed of hound in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and it is widespread among hunters as working hunting dog. In order for the dog to act appropriately while standing or moving, its body needs to be built in such way to enable appropriate response to the impact of various external forces. All parts of dog`s body stands in certain correlation that are specific to each group of dogs. Besides the the size of individual parts of extremities, or the body itself, the angles between the bones in joints are extremely important. The aim of this paper was to determine the basic parameters of angularity of Bosnian broken-haired hound – Barak by conducting zootechnical measurements. The study involved 120 dogs, including 64 males and 56 females, aged from 9 months to 10 years, from entire territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The total of 6 parameters of angularity were measured on each dog. This is the first analysis of the angularity for the Bosnian broken-haired hound Barak, and the results can be used for further detailed description of this breed, as FCI standard for Barak does not describe any angle except for shoulder and pastern. The results indicates almost equal values of angles in both males and females, and except for the angles of shoulder and croup, no statistical significance was observed in other angles between the genders.
