The Hovawart is a perfect working dog, but can also be a good familydog. My first Hovawarts for breeding were imported to get some new lines in the Netherlands. I started with dogs from Belgium and Finland. But the most important thing to me is social character and good health.
Therefor all my Hovawarts are officially checked on hipdysplasia and eye-diseases. The dogs I use for breeding are perfectly healthy.
My dogs are looking for active families who like to do something with them.
Besides daily walks, they like training or doing sports. I always advice puppy socialisation and training. Nothing is as important as good start. That's why leadership and clearness is a must, because also the ever so lovely Hovawart can become an agressive dog. People who like to have an Hovawart from me, are invited to come and have a look at my dogs. Because in this way you can get a better idea of my dogs and I learn to know future owners. You better call before visiting. So you will be sure that we are at home.
How it started
Already since 1993 I am complete hovawart fanatic. In 1994 I imported our first Hovawart bitch from Belgium. She was bred through the official hovawart club of Belgium. A beautifull black bitch, both parents were free of hip-dysplasia(HD). Further there were no problems known in these lines. I wanted to breed our first litter with Timbra van Hovaveld. Unfortunately it didn’t work out. Timbra seemed to have a very severe form of HD. I was very lucky that she didn’t have much pain of this, but Timbra was not able to do a lot of sport.
In 1997 I imported two new ladies, this time from Finland. From those both ladies I had offspring. They have great characters and are good family dogs. Even in families with small children, dogs or other animals they have proved to feel at home. Rosenna and Ronda van de Romerweide showed their qualities too. They are both Dutch Champion. Just like Willow van de Romerweide.
Meanwhile I imported a beautifull black and gold dog, Air Force Bohaemic, from the Czech Republic and the blond bitch, Hayaklause Marilyn, from Finland. Airforce Bohaemic is an approved studdog at the Hovawart Rasvereniging Nederland.
I now live in Germany and breed with the RZV.
