Tyroler Bracke FCI Standard
The Tyrolean Hound was invented to hunt specifically in the high altitudes of Australian mountains. It got used to hunt solely and in any weather conditions including icy winters and scorching summers. Its preferable quarries are rabbit and hare but it’s also able to effectively detect the location of wounded or sick deer. This dog is notable for its highly sensible nose and fabulous tracking talents so it’s treasured for its capability to follow even a cold trail. At the same time the Tyrolean Hound possesses amiable and obedient disposition and sometimes serves exclusively as a family dog.
Although the breed existed for quite a while its organised breeding were set up only by 1860. The initial breed standard was developed and acknowledged in 1896 and in this year it participated in the dog show at Innsbruck. The Tyrolean Hound was granted recognition of the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) in 1908. And it was officially approved by the United Kennel Club (UKC) in 2006.
The Tyrolean Hound is generally well-behaved with unknown people but it won’t appreciate to be petted by them. Being somewhat reserved in communication with strangers it will never snap without any good reason. The breed is characterised by strongly developed senses and excellent watchfulness so it will make a remarkable watchdog. However it lacks essential aggressiveness to become a good guard dog.
This hunting dog prefers to work alone so it requires timely socialisation with other canines. It can get along quite well with other dogs, which will match it in its vitality. The Tyrolean Hound is too exuberant for toy-type breeds meaning it can hurt them unintentionally while playing. The dogs’ powerful prey drive allows it to be highly effective in performing its hunting responsibilities and at the same time it makes it rather dangerous for all kind of street animals. However it will put up with the existence of a home cat if they have been introduced to each other at an early age.

The Tyrolean Hound is very sensitive to critiques and works best if stimulated with tasty incentives and praise. Moreover the trainer should possess assertive personality and be unchallengeable leader for the dog.

Remember that without appropriate amount of exercise this dog will most surely manifest such highly unwelcomed behavioural patterns as being destructive, nervous, over-excited and even aggressive.
