There's actually an interesting tidbit of history behind the Schiller Hound's name; originating from Sweden, the first members of this breed were reared up by a farmer named Per Schiller. For the first litter of puppies, Mr. Schiller mixed Standard Swiss Hounds with English Harrier dogs. Greatly pleased by the resulting breed, Mr. Schiller then brought a few pups with him to the first ever Swedish Dog show which took place in 1886. It wouldn't be until 1907 - a few years after Mr. Schiller passed away - that the breed that he helped bring into being would be formally recognized by the Swedish Kennel Club.
The Schiller Hound is an intuitive and friendly dog that will thrive when physically and mentally stimulated every day. Whether out on the trail, playing a scent game inside or in the yard, or working on a challenging puzzle, this dog will prove to be an amiable companion and a dog eager to learn new things.
