The hovawart is one of nine recognized working breeds in Germany. They worked hard to get the breed into this category and I hope it will succeed to this specification. Unfortunately not to many people in this country know what this really means.

In general those working dogs are tested with the Schutzhund work. This means the dog has to have a stable character in ALL situations, courage, strength, endurance and bidability.

It takes a special dog to not only pass all three phases at a Schutzhund trial but to be actually good at it. It also takes a dedicated owner.
