What’s to Love About Catalonia?
Dare we say everything? Catalonia, located in Spain’s extreme north eastern corner and sharing a border with France, is a distinctive cultural area. Catalonia is what is know as one of Spain’s comunidades autonomias (autonomous communities), which has its own language and culture. Not only that, but Catalonia has also played an important part in history.
Barcelona is one of the region’s major cities, which is located on the Mediterranean Sea. It’s a modern city, filled with beautiful architecture from ancient and medieval times, a relaxed atmosphere, and more. It’s always an adventure in this beautiful city—just turn the corner, and you’ll come across a beautiful surprise.
Catalonia is also known for its wonderful cuisine. Their foods include everything from the sean and mountains. You’ll find Pa amb tormquet (which is toasted bread with tomato, olive oil, and salt), to Escudella, which is a type of Catalan stew made of meat, beans, potatoes and cabbage. And they have their own version paella, which is called Fideua.
Along with its wonderful cuisine, Catalan is filled with a rich cultural heritage. Catalan people are very proud of their heritage and nation. It’s also a nation famous for its famous dog breed.
The Catalan Sheepdog originates from Catalan and was originally bred as a herding dog. After the Roman invasion, the dog was then used to guard the flock, as well as heard cattle. No one is completely sure of the ancestry of these beautiful dogs, but they are thought to be descended from an ancient Pyrenean Mountain dog of some kind.
These dogs were used in both World Wars as messenger and guard dogs. Today they’re often used as police or search and rescue dogs in Spain.
Catalan Sheepdogs are considered to be gentle and obedient, and they’re known to be great dogs for families, especially because they’re good with kids. These dogs are patient and rarely aggressive, though they can be wary of strangers. Because they are herding dogs, a Catalan Sheepdog may try to keep small kids and other dogs herded together. They’re also known for doing with other dogs and cats, in spite of their herding natures.
We hope you’ve enjoyed this list of Catalan dog names, and that you were able to find the best name for your dog!
