Before I found the hovawart, I was looking for a right breed for a long time. I wanted a healthy dog, with minimum of hereditary issues, with a good lifespan, with doublecout so it wouldnt freeze during winter, a guardian, a familydog and a great friend. When I saw a show on TV about hovawarts, I knew this breed was exactly what I was looking for. Hovawart is a very versatile breed.
I started to look for litters with parents who were active in sports, mainly IPO. After careful consideration, I chose Erin's litter. A bonus was also the location- Czech Republic! We had been there before and what a nice reason to go back :)
It was a long way home, about 25 hours of driving and breaks.
Erin was born on 22nd of August 2014 as 7th in her litter.
