When the wolf took down the ears
A certain historical paradox is that
the cultivation of grain in the Neolithic epoch (in various places in the period 8 to 5 thousand years B.C.) contributed critically to the development and increasing specialization of hunting dogs, which gave rise to hunting culture and the multitude of groups and subsequently breeds of hunting dogs, It led to the need to permanently reside in one place. At the same time, however, hunting opportunities decreased.
The replacement was domestication and the breeding of domestic livestock. Although agriculture ended the era of hunting as the main prerequisite for ensuring sustenance, and thus the entire human existence, as a result it led to hunting specialization, which gave rise to a hunting culture, a multitude of groups and subsequently breeds of hunting dogs.
