More details about the Hamiltonstövare

Hamiltonstövare: Origins and history

This Swedish dog was created by, and takes his name from, Count Adolf Patrick Hamilton; it’s only a pity they didn’t call the breed the Count Adolf Patrick Hamilton Hound. The Count stuck together five disparate breeds in the late eighteenth century – the English Foxhound, Harrier, Curlandish Hound, Holsteiner Hound, and Heiderbracke – and this is what he got. The first official Hamilton Hounds were named Pang and Stella and not, sadly, Neil and Christine.

FCI classification of the Hamiltonstövare

  • Group 6 - Scent hounds and related breeds

  • Section 1 : Scent hounds

Training a Hamiltonstövare
