What do you know of them?

How do they compare at Blood tracking far as comparing numbers of passing entrants vs Versatile/ Jagd-Gebrauch dogs?

Curious how Teckels stack up as well..


hannoversche and bayrische gebirgsschweißhunde are dogs fore professional hunters and forestwardens and usually only sold to those parties.
If you need a bloodtracking dog for your personal choice a teckel is a very good option as long as no power to catch and pull down wounded game is needed.
They are usually easier totrain for this task as V-dogs and many do it natural without a great amount of specific training. There are strains or bloodlines who are focused on this special use.

Thank You Wolfgang.
The Hanover looks like a big hound and perhaps was from where the Plott Hound was derived?
Very impressive animal.

In the 20/40 Tracking testing, how do they stack in relation to the Versatile dogs?..Hanover, BMH and Teckels?
Ive never seen any stats but I know they must be compiled somewhere.

I like the Teckels but with DDs, I cant sell getting one to my wife!
Other than having a smaller dog to lug around in the truck with on tracking calls.

Thanks

hannoveranian hounds usually don't participate in JGHV 20/40 hour tests but would for sure come out on top together with BGS. these 2 breeds belong to the category Schweißhunde(bloodtrailiung dogs) and have their own tests called Vor and hauptprüfung.
Teckels are participating in very good numbers in JGHV tests and really excell as bloodtrailing dogs and beat the V-dog breeds most of the time

Great info, Wolfgang. Just wanted to add that in the Teckel, a small Schweisshund (presumably the size of a BGS) was bred in the mid-1800s by a renowned German forester. That is when the red color first appeared in the breed.
Although small, the Teckel -when bred for hunting- is however still a HUNTING dog. In this country, the biggest obstacle I am facing in breeding hunting Teckels is the reputation of the American Dachshund as obese "couch potato". Like any other hunting dog, a hunting Teckel needs to hunt and 2-3 deer searches a year is definitely not satisfying for this versatile hunting dog.

When I was in Munich I went to the Hunting and Fishing Museum there (best museum in the world BTW). They had an awesome video of the Bavarian Mountain dog hunting and tracking game. What was interesting is in the video the dog did more than just track the shot deer. It silently tracked the live herd of deer and layed down next to the hunter so he could get a shot off. After the hunter shot the deer it was off to the races.

I've been to Bavaria many times and have seen a few people with these dogs as pets but I have not had the pleasure of seeing them hunt in peron yet. I think it would be an awesome dog for a deer hunter.

Its unbelievable for me that someone puts up such a video :shock: :?: :?: :?: :oops:
The worst mistake you can make with a bloodtrailing dog is let him search live game and shoot it in front of the dog and than let him have a race!!
If the dog is used in his real job ,bloodtrailing wounded game, such an experience will distract him so much that he will follow EVERY fresh track crossing the bloodtrail.
I own a couple of Kopovo hounds (slowakian wildboarhounds) and they are excellent bloodtrackers by nature and need only a little exposure but not excessive training to do it,but their first and foremost job is find boar and bay it up or move it to the gun and once they have had their first season under their belt you can forget bloodtrailing or you have to know the dog so good that you can recoqunize EVERY time he is fooling you and follow fresh scent!!
That's hard to tell when you shot a pig out of a herd and they run all together!
