The Danish Broholmer is a large, powerful mastiff-type dog with a strong, sturdy build. Their bodies are rectangular in proportion, and their brawny forequarters dominate their overall appearance. They have a broad, massive head and a robust neck. Their head is often carried low, or stooped, when they are resting. The Danish Broholmer has a short-haired, close-fitting coat that is either yellow or golden red in color. There is a black mask and loose skin around the face and neck. White markings on the tail, chest, and feet may or may not be present.
The Danish Broholmer makes an outstanding guard dog, watch dog, and family companion. They are self-assured, even-tempered, and social. They are hard workers that deserve mutual respect from their family and owner(s). They are watchful and protective by nature, but they do not exhibit unwarranted aggression.
There are no recorded health issues or concerns for the Danish Broholmer. They typically live from 6 to 11 years.
The Danish Broholmer is from Denmark. People have known this breed since the middle ages, when it was predominately used as a stag hunter. Later, the Danish Broholmer was utilized as a guard dog for manors, farms, and estates. By the end of the 18th century, the Danish Broholmer was breeding purely, but it nearly became extinct after the Second World War. A group of people committed to the breed’s survival were able to reconstruct and re-develop the Danish Broholmer. It is still a very rare breed.
The coat of the Danish Broholmer requires very little grooming or maintenance. Brushing with a firm bristle brush can help to assist the shedding process. This breed is a seasonal heavy shedder.
The Danish Broholmer needs plenty of exercise and physical activity. As puppies, too much vigorous activity is not recommended. Over-exercising a Danish Broholmer pup can lead to hip problems and hinder bone growth.
