This dog's name means 'home/farm watcher', describing their role as livestock and property guardians in Germany's Black Forest.
Someone that wants to train in search and rescue or tracking. Hovawarts have proved successful in both.
First-timers. The Hovawart is a stunning dog that's bright and devoted to his family, but this is a breed with protective instincts that needs experienced socialisation, training and handling.
So big people will take photos
High (Two hours or more)
Without sufficient mental and physical exercise will probably do the wall of death around the living room!
Jacket and skinny trousers
Any feathering can get knotty. Some coats self-clean by depositing mud all over the kitchen floor.
All canines drop some hair, think of it as dog glitter!
MEET SOME OF OUR HOVAWART BREEDERS
I have been journeying through life accompanied by Hovawarts since April 1984 and continue that journey with our Hoevemeester affix in Scotland on the Kintyre Peninsular. As owners and hobby breeders of the Hovawart my husband and I celebrate 37 years of experience, dedication and Hovawart ownership. Our first litters, under the Hofmeester affix were born in Norfolk and the van de Hoevemeester pups were born in Belgium where we lived for 13 years and bred under Belgian and International Hovawart Federation rules and guidelines.
