Hovawarts make truly awesome companions for owners who educate themselves prior to choosing this breed.To those within their circle hovawarts are loving, mischievious, devoted, cheerful and involved companions; to outsiders they can be distrustful and defensive. Hovawarts are clever, confident, think independently, have a natural guarding instinct and can be very territorial. Training is a must with this breed of dog... they require your time, consistency, love and patience. If you have questions about hovawart temperaments or training, contact a breeder or hovawart club to find out if a hovawart is the right choice for you.

These videos show hovawarts participating in various types of training, sports and even house cleaning... what I wouldn't give for a dog that could dust and vacuum ;)
