Forum Rules (Everyone Must Read!!!)

1] What you CAN NOT post.

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this forum to post any material which is:
- abusive
- vulgar
- hateful
- harassing
- personal attacks
- obscene

You also may not:
- post images that are too large (max is 500*500px)
- post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or cited properly.
- post in UPPER CASE, which is considered yelling
- post messages which insult the Armenians, Armenian culture, traditions, etc
- post racist or other intentionally insensitive material that insults or attacks another culture (including Turks)

The Ankap thread is excluded from the strict rules because that place is more relaxed and you can vent and engage in light insults and humor. Notice it's not a blank ticket, but just a place to vent. If you go into the Ankap thread, you enter at your own risk of being clowned on.
What you PROBABLY SHOULD NOT post...
Do not post information that you will regret putting out in public. This site comes up on Google, is cached, and all of that, so be aware of that as you post. Do not ask the staff to go through and delete things that you regret making available on the web for all to see because we will not do it. Think before you post!


2] Use descriptive subject lines & research your post. This means use the SEARCH.

This reduces the chances of double-posting and it also makes it easier for people to see what they do/don't want to read. Using the search function will identify existing threads on the topic so we do not have multiple threads on the same topic.

3] Keep the focus.

Each forum has a focus on a certain topic. Questions outside the scope of a certain forum will either be moved to the appropriate forum, closed, or simply be deleted. Please post your topic in the most appropriate forum. Users that keep doing this will be warned, then banned.

4] Behave as you would in a public location.

This forum is no different than a public place. Behave yourself and act like a decent human being (i.e. be respectful). If you're unable to do so, you're not welcome here and will be made to leave.

5] Respect the authority of moderators/admins.

Public discussions of moderator/admin actions are not allowed on the forum. It is also prohibited to protest moderator actions in titles, avatars, and signatures. If you don't like something that a moderator did, PM or email the moderator and try your best to resolve the problem or difference in private.

6] Promotion of sites or products is not permitted.

Advertisements are not allowed in this venue. No blatant advertising or solicitations of or for business is prohibited.
This includes, but not limited to, personal resumes and links to products or
services with which the poster is affiliated, whether or not a fee is charged
for the product or service. Spamming, in which a user posts the same message repeatedly, is also prohibited.

7] We retain the right to remove any posts and/or Members for any reason, without prior notice.


- PLEASE READ -

Members are welcome to read posts and though we encourage your active participation in the forum, it is not required. If you do participate by posting, however, we expect that on the whole you contribute something to the forum. This means that the bulk of your posts should not be in "fun" threads (e.g. Ankap, Keep & Kill, This or That, etc.). Further, while occasionally it is appropriate to simply voice your agreement or approval, not all of your posts should be of this variety: "LOL Member213!" "I agree."
If it is evident that a member is simply posting for the sake of posting, they will be removed.


8] These Rules & Guidelines may be amended at any time. (last update September 17, 2009)

If you believe an individual is repeatedly breaking the rules, please report to admin/moderator.

  • Armenian Mountain Dog or simply GAMPR

    Hi everyone. Long time no see. Hope everything is well with all the hyeclub forumers.

    I have recently discovered that there is an ancient breed of dogs (not recognized by American Kennel Club Association but a breed non the less) called Gampr. Now where I was brought up every large and aggressive dog was called Gampr and I had no idea a separate breed existed. Being a dog lover I have to now find out everything I can about the breed and one day maybe get one of my own. I searched the internet not finding too much.

    Has anyone ever had one of these dogs. If yes, please tell me more.


    Very grateful for any info.

    Thanks everyone.

    There are a lot of them in Armenia, they would cut off the ears to make them more aggressive. They are being used for looking out for cow and sheep herd.

    Don't really know much else...

        Other name is “Gaylkhekht”. The dog is extremely strong and brave and practically fearless against wolfs. They actually cut off ears so dog will have less vulnerable parts while fight.

          I am very familiar with those dogs. In the US, they are called the "Caucasian Mountain Dog", and also "Caucasian Ovcharka." They are referred to in different names throughout the transcaucasus, but they are essentially the same dog. If they continue to be bred along different lines in the 3 caucasus republics, they could possibly become different breeds in time. In Armenia, its called Gampr. My uncle in Armenia owns, breeds, and fights gamprs, and some of them are so fierce that I have seen them choke the pit bulls neck and wolves in a 1 on 1 fight and kill them.

          If you ever decide to buy a gampr, or any dog, for that matter, DO NOT buy them from the AKC stock. AKC dogs are weak, pathetic, sickly dogs. SImply put, Americans can't produce dogs. BE SURE to buy any dog from overseas. You can buy a gampr from Armenia.

          They come in two forms: one is short hair the other is long hair. Ears are cropped.

          here is a book you should buy and read:

              And which of the 3 Caucasian nations has the best version in your opinion or that of a dog expert? Also, I think chobans are in turkey as well, or a similar variety called Anatolian Sheep dog or something like that.
              For the first time in more than 600 years, Armenia is free and independent, and we are therefore obligated
              to place our national interests ahead of our personal gains or aspirations.

                Artsakh, I'm impressed. Brotherly advice, drop the politics, you seem to be much better at walking dogs

                    Thanks for the info, the book looks like it would be useful to read.

                    It's funny but I actually had a discussion with my husband and he thought a pit bull would beat the Gampr but I did not agree. This proves my point.

                    I am almost a little scared to own a Mountain Dog now after all the comments about the ferocity of the breed. How safe can you or your family & friends really be?
