Bavarian Mountain Hound

The Bavarian Mountain Hound is not suited for city life, nor is it a dog for the casual hunter. This breed is in regular need of space and exercise and requires a patient, experienced trainer.

A mobile and muscular, medium size dog, the Bavarian Mountain Hound is generally calm, quiet, poised and very attached to their master and family. When hunting however, they are hard, single-minded and persistent. Courageous and spirited they are at ease on a rugged terrain, with a superb nose and powerful hunting instinct.

This is a self assured, unafraid, biddable dog, which is neither shy nor aggressive. A working breed, valued for its commitment and endurance, the Bavarian Mountain Hound specialises in tracking wounded game, such as deer or wild boar, over great distances in mountainous regions.
