NORWEGIAN ELKHOUND APPEARANCE:
An ideal elkhound has a tightly curled tail, as the dog shown in the photograph on this page. The elkhound is a medium sized dog and extremely hardy. They are bred for hunting large game and in addition to stamina and power, they are able to sustain quite some level of punishment before being disabled. The elkhound has a very strong drive and it is not unheard of for an elkhound to go through a plate glass window when motivated by its quarry. Although the breed is strong and hardy, the dogs typically have an inseperable bond with their masters and are quite loyal.

NORWEGIAN ELKHOUND HISTORY:
The Norwegian Elkhound is a breed of dog, specifically a member of the scenthound family. The dog is the national dog breed of Norway.

For many years, the breed was considered one of the oldest dog breeds, going back more than five thousand years. Recent DNA analysis reveals, however, that this breed is actually a recent construction, bred to resemble an older form.

The Norwegian elkhound was presented at a dog exhibition for the first time in 1877.

NORWEGIAN ELKHOUND HEALTH:


NORWEGIAN ELKHOUND TEMPERAMENT:
Norwegian Elkhounds are loyal to their "pack" and make good family dogs. They are tolerant of children and are protective of those they consider part of their pack or family. Norwegian Elkhounds are difficult to train because of their intelligence and deep independent streak. However, they are good natured in their disobedience (for example, failing to "come" because there is something of greater interest in the other direction).
