German Hound

The German Hound is little known outside of Germany.

However, he turns out to be an excellent hunter and a good companion dog.

Admittedly, he is hardly docile, but he wants to be gentle and affectionate with his master, his family and the children. It must be able to benefit from optimal conditions to flourish: large spaces.

It is not recommended for sedentary or elderly people, as they could not satisfy their need for outings.

He has a very robust health and does not require any particular maintenance.


The German Brachet breed was obtained by the fusion, towards the end of the 19th century, of the Westphalian Brachet with various varieties of Steinbracken.

The Deutschen Bracken Club was, in fact, created in 1886, bringing together all the Brachets of northwestern Germany. Outside of its region of origin and Germany, the German Hound remains uncommon today.

It continues to be used primarily as a hunting dog. The German Brachet breed was definitively recognized by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) on January 28, 1964.
