The new breed hoping to sniff out success at Crufts
The Bavarian Mountain Hound – a German scent hound – will compete in their own breed classes for the first time at Crufts.
Just under 1,000 Bavarian Mountain Hounds have been registered by The Kennel Club – with six now competing in the world’s biggest dog show.
Minna Borsuk, Chairman of the Bavarian Mountain Hound Society said: “We are delighted that the Bavarian Mountain Hound will be competing in their own classes and making history at Crufts this year.
”They are a truly unique and quirky breed, completely loyal and very loving, and we’re so excited to have such a big platform for the breed for the first time, and that more people will have the opportunity to find out about these dogs.
“Of course, they’re not a breed for everyone, they need a lot of amusement and entertainment, so best suit someone with an active lifestyle.
”However, thanks to their impeccable sense of smell, there are so many activities, beyond the hobby of dog showing, that they enjoy, such as mantrailing, scentwork or agility.
”And of course they make a great pet too, for the right owners. We urge people to come and meet these dogs at Crufts and see for themselves!”
