History

Traditionally, people used boar hunter dogs, since the 19th century, and these breeds’ roles did not change much over the course of time. Hunters just added minor modifications, from time to time, in order to perfect the hunting breeds, according to their preferences. Opposite to other hunting breeds, the exact history of the Styrian Coarse-Haired Hound is easily traceable back, thanks to the existing documentation.

The Styrian Coarse-Haired Hound is known to be developed around the 1870s, by an industrialist named Karl Peintinger, in Styria. The breed is not purebred, for the reason being, that it is a cross between the Istrian Coarse-Haired Hound and the Hanover Hound. He used a specific, selective breeding process until the perfect rough, wiry brown coated, medium-sized, hunting breed was achieved. Karl Peintinger’s objective was to develop a hunting breed, that was hardy and would hunt boar over the mountainous regions. The breeder was from Styrian, from the southern part of Austria, in the neighborhood of Slovenia. Given the often-unpredictable weather and hilly terrain of the Alpes, the Styrian Coarse-Haired Hound does excellent and efficient work outdoors, the breed faces no problem traversing the most uneven grounds and altitudes. Their sense of smell is really heightened, and the dogs also have the capability to hunt healthy animals and also to track down wounded prey.

In 1889, not long after the Styrian Coarse-Haired Hound’s creation, the breed got recognized in its homeland, by the Austrian Kennel Club, due to its immense popularity among the hunter community. Nevertheless, interestingly, took until 2006 for the UKC (United Kennel Club) to recognize the breed, and accepting them into the scent-hound group. The FCI (Fédération Cynologique Internationale) also registered the breed. In some records, the breed is known as the Peintinger Bracke, which can be confusing sometimes.

Nowadays, the Styrian Coarse-Haired Hound remains in rarity outside its home country, Austria, and Slovenia, where the breed is still used for hunting purposes. In spite of other hound breeds, that could make excellent family companions, the Styrian Coarse-Haired Hound is not generally kept as a pet, because the breed requires a lot of exercise and space, moreover, the dogs can be destructive and dominant.
