History

The Schiller Hound It is a working breed that has existed in Sweden since the Middle Ages. But, the breed was not really established and recognized until 1952. This recognition is due in large part to a breeder, Per Schiller, who gave the breed its name.

In 1886, at the first Swedish dog show, they were shown 189 hounds. Among them were Tamburini and Ralla I, a brother and sister belonging to Per Schiller. They were descended from the famous hounds of the Kaflas estate. These dogs probably came from southern Germany: rather small, fawn in color with black fur and slight white markings.

The Schiller Hound they were then based on the crossing of Swiss dogs, German and Austrian, as well as in British hunting dogs, especially the Harriers, to produce a fast and light breed that quickly acquired its type. curiously, Per Schiller worked alongside a Swedish doctor named Adolf Hamilton, and also led to the development of a similar dog named Hamilton Hound, that can be differentiated from Schiller Hound for its tricolor coat.

Still very rare outside his native country, the Schiller Hound was recognized by the Swedish Kennel Club in 1907.

The Schiller Hound has been traditionally used as a sniffing dog, although some describe it as a hunting dog. The breed is known for both its speed and superior olfactory ability; able to quickly track its prey and then howl loudly when its master approaches, alerting of its position. It is a hardy dog ​​that can tolerate the cold Swedish winters well.. Often, they work individually rather than in a pack and typically hunt rabbits and foxes. Even today, many dogs still work as hunters, although they are equally good household pets.
