More details about the Serbian Tricolour Hound

Serbian Tricolour Hound: Origins and history

The Serbian Tricolour Hound has been in existence for many years, yet his exact origins are unclear. Many breeds of scent hound have lived in the Balkans for decades, and in fact, this breed was recognised as just another Serbian scent hound. However, as the breed has certain characteristics that differentiate it from other hounds, it was granted independent status in 1961 by the FCI. 

FCI classification of the Serbian Tricolour Hound

  • Group 6 - Scent hounds and related breeds

  • Section 1 : Scent hounds

Training a Serbian Tricolour Hound

The Serbian Tricolour Hound does best with patient, persistent and positive reinforcement training regimes. This hound can become bored quite easily with repetitive tasks so it’s important to keep training sessions short and fun. If you plan to keep your hound among other animals or children, they need to be socialised from a very young age.

Serbian Tricolour Hound: Purchase price

At this time, in the UK, there are no documented costs to purchase a Serbian Tricolour Hound, as they are very rarely seen outside of their native Serbia. An estimated monthly cost to take care of and maintain one of these dogs will be around £120. This would cover the budget for food, vet’s bills, and pet insurance.
