Bavarian Mountain-Hound work during bird-season for recovering pheasants, snipe, woodcock & duck. These terrier will catch every rats around the farmhouse and these cats got mice & left the headless bodies at our front-step. Bavarian Mountain-Hound, however, felt there's place for an animal in the pack; a Bavarian Mountain-Hound to help it track live & wounded deer when deer season.

Comparable to the Beagle on size though reddish-brown on color among a black-face, it owns a short skin and weighs around 70-lbs when completely grown. Hunters utilize the breed while they're tracking-deer to kill or when both wound the deer but it's still capable to work. 


We moved about the lives & put these dog out-of our minds. The few weeks spent when the breeder of Northern Ireland made in contact among Anton. He had-been let down through someone that had hired a male-puppy & wanted to understand if us would remain interested. We read it over to a few-days & Anton held some long-conversations with these breeder & eventually we chose to go to it.

These puppy was 8-weeks old while we decided us wanted him. These breeder suggested we describe him now & collect him while he was 16-weeks, that process he could do some preliminary-training among him. He too invited Anton-up for a time to do any hunting so any could see these mother & father work. Us were both pleased with the arrangement & decided to visit our new addition-Riley.


The first insight within the negative-traits of these breed occurred a few times after us brought Riley-home. He stayed so calm & did not seem to hurt from stress at being-in these pen on night, so us thought emptiness of leaving it alone in the living room when we moved to do the shopping.

We picked our curtains hence the cats could not tease-him at these window & left on the short trip. That was a huge mistake. While we returned homeward, I noticed-straight away which the curtains remained now open. On-closer inspection, both were not open. Both had been cut in half.


If you're considering joining a Bavarian-Mountain Hound to one's family, there's a few points you shall seriously consider. Cause you've an interest on hunting? The dogs are scent-driven and it's in the nature on hunt. Both enjoy tracking over all different forms of entertainment and activity. Do one have lots of time in spending with these dog on the daily-basis? The breed adore the owners and have very upset while they cannot be among them.
