Tyrolean Hound: Origins and history

This breed is thought to be a descendant from the ancient Celtic canine family, with ancestors dating back to the 16th Century. Documentation reports that the Emperor Maximilian I owned one of these hunting dogs. Around 1860, one of the very first Tyrolean Hounds was noted in its home country, Austria. These canines were recognised as a breed in 1908, then in 2006 they were accepted by the UK Kennel Club in the scent hound registry. Although still very popular in his home country, Austria, the Tyrolean Hound is sometimes found in other countries within Europe, mainly as a working dog.

Training a Tyrolean Hound

On the whole, the Tyrolean Hound is relatively easy to train. He needs a consistent and firm hand from his master. As with most hounds, he might be somewhat stubborn at times.
