Dog of the Month: Broholmer

The Broholmer is a large Danish dog breed, often employed as guard dog. In the past it would serve as guard dog for the wealthy. It was expensive to keep such big dogs and average people often couldn't afford them.

The breed resembles a Mastiff and is sometimes called the Danish Mastiff. The dogs are large and powerful with a loud and impressive bark.

Broholmers are generally calm, good tempered, and friendly, albeit watchful towards strangers. They make great family companions.

With such a big dog - females weigh around 90-130 lbs and males 110-150 lbs - training is important. A 150 lbs dog taking off after something could pull a strong man along.
