International Federation for Eurasier Breeding (IFEZ)

60 Years Eurasier

In 2020 the German dog breed, the Eurasier will be 60 years. It is still a relatively young breed with the FCI standard 291. It is surprising how the Eurasier, starting out from an idea for a family companion dog, has developed into a stunning breed that is known worldwide

The idea of a family companion dog with a good character, and relaxed and undemonstrative disposition towards strangers was realized

Already within the first few decades of Eurasier breeding, several clubs were founded in Germany as well as abroad, pursuing the original aims of the breed founder and his colleagues of the first hour. A shared breeding database (for Eurasiers) was founded in 1995 by G Aach, ZG, to draw together the various breeding efforts. After the signing of contracts in 1996 it was renamed IFEZ – International Federation for Eurasier Breeding (Zucht in German, hence the Z). The name is the mission statement!

The health data in the database, analyzed with an estimate of breeding potential, are our basis for the best possible breeding of pedigree dogs.

The health data in the database, analyzed with an estimate of breeding potential, are our basis for the best possible breeding of pedigree dogs.

The excellent health, the pleasant character and the colour variety of the Eurasier could be maintained over 60 years and will also be carefully nurtured in the future by the IFEZ member clubs.

IFEZ is associated with the FCI by a treaty of cooperation, and is, with its 11 current members (Eurasier breed clubs in Europe and America), the guarantor that the Eurasier breed will remain healthy, varied and of good temperament.

All IFEZ clubs are working together for the successful future of our wonderful breed.

IFEZ conference 2023

On October 28th, 2023, after a four-year break due to Corona, a conference of the International Federation for Eurasier Breeding finally took place again in Stuttgart.

Unfortunately, 6 registered representatives from Germany, England and Switzerland were missing due to illness and damage to the car. A Viko made it possible for at least some of these people to participate. In terms of content, the main topic was the new database from the TG publishing house. Functions compared to our old DB, the possible participants and the costs, all of this was discussed in detail. All clubs present have confirmed their continued participation in our data community.

This time, the questions and discussions about breeding focused on complex diseases of the elbow and tumor diseases (stomach). The “binding nature” of the agreements on breeding ethics for the clubs was also discussed controversially.

A special item on the agenda was the thanks of all active members of all clubs to Georg Petermayer, who created and maintained our previous database according to our wishes for more than 20 years and is now no longer able to continue this work due to illness. Renate Kösel, who has supported Georg Petermayer since 2011, was also particularly thanked.

Next year we will meet online to save resources, and a face-to-face meeting is planned again in 2025.

IFEZ Meeting 2023

International Federation for Eurasier Breeding (IFEZ)


The well-attended IFEZ meetings over the last 26 years are testimony of the fact that IFEZ is a great organization of Eurasier clubs. The first generation of delegates (Chairpersons, Breeding Officials and Data Representatives) who had been there since its inception, are slowly retiring from the positions in their clubs and therefore as IFEZ delegates. New delegates are taking over.

The three most important pillars of IFEZ are now being modernized; they are:

- Database with a program to estimate breeding values.
- Agreements with IFEZ members.
- IFEZ homepage.

The database is being positioned in the Cloud and data are to be managed by the data representatives of the clubs directly. The database is having an additional character ‘epilepsy’; such additions will always be possible when needed.

The IFEZ agreements with clubs is being re-worked. It will be adapted to the present status of IFEZ.

The IFEZ homepages has had a complete overhaul and will be put live. We are of the opinion that this window to the outside world in particular will be able to represent IFEZ with its ideas as a modern organization for the good of our Eurasiers.

In the next few years we will work on some topics to secure the future of IFEZ, so that our Eurasiers will stay the way we value them:

Healthy, with a fine character, in various colours, and just a good family companion.
