Hovawart

The term Hovawart derived from medieval german, in which -hova- meant “Court” and -wart-, “guardian”.

History

The dog as guardian of the house and the courtyard has an ancient tradition in the history of humanity. Maybe thousands of years ago, private ownership of the house and yard, goods and workshops could only be established with the help of the protective function of dogs. The four-legged court guards were already highly regarded by the Teutons, which is reflected in the various laws of the last Teutons. Of the 24 Lex Baiuvariorum articles, an entire article is dedicated only to dogs. Here, plus a dozen other dog breeds, the court dog is explicitly mentioned as “Houvavart”. The Houvavart was valued at 3 shillings. It was a huge amount, if you consider that in the same body of law a horse “mediocre” was valued at only half a shilling. The Hovawarts are also mentioned in various writings from the Middle Ages.

The Hovawart Today is in the intellectual and functional tradition of these old court dogs. Regarding their genetic offspring, will not be more or less related to them than the other breeds of guard dogs and native dogs. Building a direct line of descent to old Hovavart would not be permissible, especially since it is not known at all what these dogs looked like.

After 1910 the Hovawart but without a description of the appearance. Over the years 20 established itself as a breed of dog.

In the FCI breed standard of 1998 It is said that:

“From 1912 the reproduction of this breed has been using similar type dogs that are still in farms to restore the breed. Apart from this, at the beginning of the crossing, you cross them with German shepherds, Newfoundland, Leonberger and other races were admitted. In addition to the strict measures taken in the breeders, the type of work was obtained again.”

In addition, crossed the Hungarian watchdog Kuvasz, what is important to understand the nature of Hovawart. After having almost died out, after the first world war, the breed was recovered by the kinophile K. F. king. In a span of time, what had been done very successfully thousands of years before was rebuilt here. Like, but mostly of the nature the right dogs were mated. The decisive criterion was performance for the intended purpose, so to speak, the work championship. It is quite possible that the Hovawart current look like the old ones Hovawart of our ancestors by this procedure of appearance and nature, but that is speculation. Only in 1944 brood book closed. So a vast gene pool was created as the basis for this breed of dog., that even today is very useful for your health and fitness.

Physical characteristics

The Hovawart is a big dog, strong and at the same time quite thin. With the Hovi today three strokes of color are allowed: Rubio, black marks (black with gold brown markings) black and white. Males have a height to the cross of 63 a 70 cm.. Considering its type and size, the Hovawart is thinner than it appears underneath its medium long wavy coat. Therefore, a weight of 30 a 45 kg is considered normal for males. Despite this not so high weight, it is a very powerful and strong dog. Only for its strength and size it belongs to a hand with experience in dogs. The Hovawart he's a working dog, Guard and protection.

Character and skills

The character of Hovawart demands a person with a strong dog mind. He has a strong will, a head of its own and is very independent.

The “desire to please” not as strong on him as on many other working dog breeds. Your master or caregiver has yet to work and earn it. then a Hovawart well educated he is an extremely efficient off-roader and a lovely friend.

He is a defensive protector of his family and diligently protects his territory. He moves silently on the ground and faces an intruder suddenly but persistently. With built-in yard dog, the Hovawart not fully occupied, especially since nowadays it has to barely monitor a large enough area. He is intelligent and seeks true association with his caregiver. At the same time it is affectionate and sensitive and at the same time it radiates something primitive, archaic.

Wants and seeks connection with family. Like a well-behaved and demanded working dog, the Hovawart it is also an excellent family dog. Often rejoices with petting and hitting like a little lapdog. He is very friendly and gentle with the people he has taken to his heart. Once you meet them, will never forget them. When he is young he shows his affection sometimes very stormy.

The Hovawart it is a low maintenance dog. Apart from the change of coat it does not need to be brushed every day, because her coat doesn't tend to tangle due to the small amount of undercoat.

Here its owner must assert himself with the consequent nonchalance, then he will follow faithfully and with good behavior and accept the leadership of his humans without problems.

One must bring with him time and knowledge for an intensive education and, the best of all, training. If one loses the basic elements of education, you can hardly walk with him without stress. So your self-confidence could even become a leadership claim.. Otherwise, the Hovawart it's the ideal companion dog image. He wants his humans to guide him, but without ever being submissive. The Hovawart maintains its own head and its own will. For some people this is perhaps too much of their own personality. But only this profile of the Hovawart can be an excellent basis for a respectful and intense human-dog relationship.

    Hokkaido Health

    In fact, possible inbreeding in the rearing of Hokkaido in Europe, since due to the rarity of this breed there are very few breeding dogs.

    History

    Where did the Siberian Husky originally come from?

    The history of the Siberian Huskys is inseparably connected with the lives of the people of the Arctic Circle. Only with their dogs, that pulled the sleds, they helped in the hunt, provided reliable GPS, they protected them from polar bears and finally warmed them up on cold nights, the people there managed to survive. However, the Siberian Husky as a modern dog breed it is quite young. Its history began around 1910, and in Alaska the huskies they were bigger and stronger, comparable to current MALAMUTE.

    At the sled races a Siberian fur trader appeared with his thin dogs. They were called “Husky“, at that time an expletive for the eskimos. But these dogs won race after race. The polar explorer Roald Amundsen noticed them. Norwegian Leonard Seppala began to reproduce them. His breakthrough came in 1925 when a diphtheria epidemic broke out in the remote city of Name in the middle of the polar winter. In extremely heavy snow there was no way to get through. Adults and children died. So brave mushers under Seppala's leadership they decided to bring the salivary serum to more than 1000 kilometers with their sleds of huskies. They gave it their all and the people were saved. A monument was erected on the Central Park in New York in honor of Husky. Even today the “Great Iditarod Sled Race” is still celebrated every year in Name.

    The Siberian began his triumphal procession with the people of the sled dogs. He benefited from the fact that mushers they wanted fast dogs for short distances, While the inuit depended on endurance and long distances. There are many breeds of sled dogs that vary according to need, as the Husky de Alaska. But only the Siberian Husky is recognized as a breed of dog.

    In 1932 the standard defining it as a working sled dog was approved according to the “form for function”. In the USA., breeders started around 1970 to create a Husky For the general public. Two lines were developed, the Showdog and the Siberian Husky employee.

The official FCI standard still defines the Siberian Husky as:

    Medium size working dog, fast, light feet… extremely capable of performing its original task as a sled dog and pulling light loads at moderate speed over long distances.

    The Siberian Husky a dog is not for beginners. You have high demands on your attitude, stemming from your destiny as a sled dog. All of our routines must be tailored to your needs. This especially applies to working line dogs.. In the case of show lines for family dogs, these requirements are only valid up to a point.

The garden, where to huskies they like to stay, should not be considered an ornamental garden.

    The Siberian Husky can be well trained by an experienced dog owner. He is open and honest and likes to work alongside his master or carer, although his “will to please” be limited. Not a partner for any kind of tricks. Only when it comes to pulling a sled are you with all your senses and all your will to do so. Quickly learn to follow the orders of the musher. In daily contact he is trouble free and frugal. Must be used to other pets, especially cats or rabbits, from the puppy, otherwise it sees them as prey.
