On the basis of the Federation of Hunting Dog-breeding of Ukraine in the Lviv region was conducted testing and evaluation of the working qualities of dogs of hunting breeds in natural and artificial burrows on the beast. The tests evaluated the main performance of dogs, namely: feeling and search, courage, malice and correctness of grasp, voice, viscosity, dexterity and obedience on a special scale of scoring. As a result of the test of Welsh terrier was installed a sufficiently high rating of the working qualities of dogs of this breed by such indicators as sensation and search (18.20 ± 2.901 points) and viscosity (26.47 ± 3.062 points). In terms of agility and obedience, the best performance among dogs of all breeds were shown by fees - 16.50 and 4.50 points, respectively. The Foxterriers were the best by the courage, malice and correctness of the grip - 17.9 points. On the whole, analyzing the results of the test on the beast, was found that the dogs of the breed of the Jagdterrier had the highest scores in terms of voice and viscosity (4.25 and 26.83 points, respectively). In addition, the scores of agility, sense and search, courage, malice and correctness of grip were quite high - 14.90; 18,30; 15.60 points, respectively. This proves once again that the Jagdterrier is the most workable dog to hunt. Performance indicators of offspring of breeding dogs of the Yagdterrier show that such traits as sense (16.14 points), courage (16.67 points), voice (4.33 points) and dexterity (16.33 points) have better results the descendants of Knight Bart. Among the females by such working qualities as search (19.00 points) and daring (17.33 points) the best results are shown by the descendants of Dimka.
