The finest pups from this litter were kept and from these select puppies, the Styrian Coarse-haired Hound evolved. The breed was first recognised in 2006 by the UK Kennel Club.

Training a Coarse-haired Styrian Hound

This dog’s training must begin at a very young age and be consistent to emphasise to the dog exactly what you expect from him. Obedience and socialisation skills need to be taught, as this hound is quite stubborn and independent. He must understand the “recall” command, particularly when he is hunting in the field, and picks up the scent of something interesting.
