Hofgarten Schloss Fasanerie, 36124 Eichenzell


2022-06-12 - RESULTS


The year 1922 is considered to be the beginning of the organized breeding of Hovawarts according to the stud book, even though the back-breeding of the old, robust German farm dog had already begun twenty years earlier. Reason enough for the three breeding clubs RZV (Rassezuchtverein für Hovawart-Hunde), HZD (Hovawart Zuchtgemeinschaft Deutschland) and HC (Hovawart Club) which are united in the VDH, as well as the International Hovawart Federation IHF for a big joint anniversary celebration.

Focal point of the anniversary year is the Hovawart Club Show on Sunday June 12th, 2022 in the courtyard garden of Schloss Fasanerie in Eichenzell near Fulda, in the middle of Germany as well in the middle of Europe. We expect visitors - two-legged and four-legged - from all neighbouring countries and from overseas. 425 Hovawarts will be judged by the best international experts, parallel on 10 rings.

The event will be kicked off by the presidents of the three German Hovawart Clubs (RZV, HZD and HC) on Saturday, June 11th, 2022 and starts with a a huge show programme including an international stud dog presentation.

The celebration evening gives the chance to all Hovawart enthusiasts to celebrate one of the most native dog breeds appropriately. The path to the ballroom will lead you through a long row of historic documents and photographs, showing 100 years of breeding history.

A substancial commemorative publication, printed and distributed just in time for the anniversary, will light the changefull and very interesting history of the Hovawart breed, combined with new findings from historic and genetic research.
