More details about the Schillerstövare

Schillerstövare: Origins and history

The intelligent and agile Schiller Hound was developed in the 1800s as a mix between the English Foxhound, English Harrier and other Swedish Hound breeds. The goal was to create the perfect sporting dog, capable of hunting in Sweden’s cold weather and harsh terrains - and they certainly succeeded! The breed gained recognition from the Swedish Kennel Club in 1913.

Training a Schillerstövare

While the impressive intelligence of the Schiller Hound means she will pick up tricks with ease, the domineering and willful side of her personality can make training difficult. Training and socialization needs to start early, be consistent and be carried out by an experienced, firm-handed master.
