The Hovawart is a versatile working dog with a medium disposition who has an excellent nose. He is kind, level-headed, instinctively protective, self-assured, and capable of handling stress. He makes a fantastic companion, watches, guards, tracking, and rescue dog because of his proportionately balanced body and exceptional commitment to his family. Hovawarts are huge, heavy-boned canines that have been developed to be shrewd home and livestock guardians. They are available in three shades: black, black and tan, and blonde. They have a great sense of humor and are tenacious, loyal, and intellectual. A Hovawart prefers to be given a task to complete, or else he will utilize his inventiveness to find one. Their maturation takes about two years.
Currently, Hovawarts are being trained as service dogs and engaging in search and rescue operations, therapy dog activities, obedience and agility competitions, and flyball. Hovawarts are not advised for first-time dog owners because they may be fairly challenging to own and require a lot of time and attention from their owners. However, the payoff is a devoted companion for a dog owner who is prepared to put up the effort to teach their dog acceptable habits in various scenarios. The Hovawart is a pet for families.
It must be a part of family life and form a tight link with the owner and family since it forms a strong bond with its “pack.” It does not mind spending the odd hour with the family if it has been successfully assimilated.
