History

The Broholmer is interesting, partly because it is a very old breed of dog whose ancestry in the Danish royal house dates back to the time of Frederick II and Christian IV. King James I of Scotland reportedly, in relation to his marriage to the daughter of Frederick II in 1589, honored the Danish court with magnificent mastiff-type dogs. These English dogs mated with the dogs that Frederick II already had. The type of dog was named “The Great Danish Dog” since the Viking Age, namely, a few 400 years before Frederick II.

We begin our historical review around 1850 at the Renaissance castle of Broen Broenne in Gudme. This is where Chamberlain Niels Frederik Bernhard Sehested (1813-1882) decided to reinstate and re-breed the old Danish dog, since the breed was about to become extinct at this time.

To promote dog breeding, ordered ten puppies to be raised in the country. However, there was a condition that one should promise to continue breeding. In this way, the dog became widely used and became a very common and precious dog.

An old newspaper said: The Broholmer it has become an ordinary dog ​​in Denmark and especially on the streets of Copenhagen.

The Broholmer also had its importance among royalty. King Frederick VII and Countess Danner had several broholmers. Both the king and the countess appreciated the breeder and were represented with their dogs on numerous occasions..

Unfortunately, early twentieth century, this breed lost a lot of ground. Dog disease, epidemics and inbreeding problems killed many dogs. After that, the tracks of these adorable dogs almost disappeared, until in 1974 The alarm rang.

The Danish Kennel Club started a national search for broholmers, and he found some dogs similar to broholmers, so you can start a real breeding job.

Although only a few dogs were found, managed to start a breeding job. The result of this work are the dogs that exist today in Denmark, whose owners are recommended to be members of the Broholmerselskabet.

From 1974, a breeding committee under the Danish Kennel Club has been responsible for planning the breeder's breeding. In 1996, el Broholmerselskabet, in collaboration with the Danish Kennel Club, obtained a valid cooperation agreement from the 1 in January of 1997, which meant that the members and dogs of the Broholmerselskabet were on their way to becoming a formal part of the Danish dog job. The cooperation agreement with DKK fulfilled the wishes of its members expressed at member meetings across the country in 1995. The race was on the way to recognition.

The Broholmer has been recognized as a Danish national breed and has been granted international approval, the pedigree of the FCI, so breed approved dogs can now be showcased at DKK shows. This means that it can display broholmers on par with other breeds of dogs. This has now resulted in the fact that several broholmers have already received the title of Danish Champion and International Champion..

The Broholmer it has also been internationally approved, meaning puppies can be sold to foreign stakeholders.

Many breeds of dogs changed their appearance in the years around the last century and had to bow to various models., which in some cases caused problems that they then had to deal with. The Broholmer has not been the subject of any fashion illusion of any kind. The standard is, with some changes, the same one that Sehested wrote.
