Sometimes it does not turn out as planned. A little more than 60 years ago, two hunting dogs from different breeds were mated with each other. The result was Kromfohrlander, a real company specialist!
Booklets terrier and half basset. That should mean a lot of hunting. But it turned out the other way around. When Ilse Schleifenbaum in the German Krom Fohr mated her fox terrier bitch with a French hunting dog of the breed petit basset griffon venden, she produced dogs whose specialties became company and guard. The puppies grew up and became as popular as they were popular. The breeding work continued and pretty soon a new breed emerged which received its international recognition in 1955, ten years after the first crossbreeding.
A kind, nice, mischievous, and compliant family dog. The guard is in the breed. But not aggression and anxiety.
The chromium is quite late in its development. It can take some time to get that room clean and fully grown year it only at the age of three.
The best is the Chromis that has learned its place in the flock. The clearer the rules, the better.
A kromfohrlander does not like to be alone. Practice solitude in small steps, then it will eventually last a few hours.
The breed does not automatically look for things with its nose. It primarily uses sight. Ideally, a chrome ice cream should have close eye contact with its driver.
Summons is rarely a problem. The dog’s desire to be close to its owner means that it is happy to come all the way in.
There is nothing wrong with physics. Long, demanding walks are child’s play, balance exercises, and other physical challenges as well. On the other hand, the desire for a cozy company is just as clear.
The breeding base is narrow, the number of dogs in Sweden is few. But the interest is great. Breeders usually have a queue to pick suitable owners from. Check your parents’ health history before you buy a puppy.
The coat is dense and dirt rarely sticks. Fur care is simple. Brush and comb when needed. The breed is available as both coarse and straight-haired. The former is the most common. Both hair layers can be in the same litter.
