Broholmer Puppies

The Broholmer is a purebred dog breed. In addition, this doggo goes by a couple of other nicknames, such as the Danish Mastiff, Danish Broholmer, Old Danish Dog, Gammel Dansk Hund, or the Dog of Frederick VII. Initially bred in Denmark in the 1500s, this dog breed was first developed for guarding and companionship. Today, they’re friendly, watchful, and loving. If you want to learn more about Broholmer puppies, then keep reading.

Where to get Broholmer Puppies

When you begin your search for this dog breed, be sure to call your local animal shelter or breed rescue organization first. They might have Broholmer puppies, adults, seniors, or mixed breeds available for adoption.

Most of these dogs have been at the shelter for a long time, waiting for the right family to come along. So, you can adopt and not shop by still getting a new furry friend while saving a dog’s life. Baldo…

On the other hand, if you have your heart set on getting a puppy and want to know the dog’s background, you can go through a reputable breeder. Since this dog is purebred, they’re recognized by the American Kennel Club. So, you can begin your search for an ethical breeder at the AKC Marketplace.

You’ll be able to tell a good breeder from the rest because they’ll do the following:

  • Socialize and train the puppies as early as possible
  • Ensure the puppies are up to date with all of their vaccinations
  • Want to meet with you in person and allow you to meet the dogs and the litter and also get to know you
  • Be open and honest with you, able to answer all of your questions
  • Allow the dog to live in their home as part of the family without the use of kennels (aside from crate training)

In addition, a good breeder will have health documents and family tree history available for you to bring home upon adoption.

So, if you come across a breeder that doesn’t do the above, then you’ll want to avoid working with them. They could be a backyard breeder or puppy mill, and they don’t breed the dogs under healthy or safe conditions. 

The Cost

The average cost of Broholmer puppies is between $1,500 and $1,800. However, the price could vary depending on the breeder’s location, the breed’s popularity, the time of year, or the number of puppies in the litter.

Appearance

Broholmer puppies will grow to be large dogs. For example, this doggo can grow about 27.5 to 29.5 inches tall and weigh between 90 and 150 pounds. 

Also, they have a short and smooth coat that can come in the following coat colors and markings:

  • Black
  • Red Golden
  • Yellow
  • White Markings
  • Black Mask

Temperament

Broholmer dogs make great family companions. However, they’re not the most cuddly of dogs and will be affectionate with you on their terms. Although, they are loyal and affectionate with their family members.

In addition, they’re good around young children, other dogs, and meeting new people. They’ll be wary at first and do make an excellent watchdog and guard dog, so you’ll need to provide them with plenty of early socialization and training. Wildpugs…

They can be stubborn and independent so training can be tricky. You can hire a professional dog trainer to help you out as needed. Luckily, they don’t bark much at all. They’re relatively quiet unless they’re alerting you of something.

Finally, this breed has little energy levels. However, they can’t live comfortably in an apartment due to their size. You’ll need to provide them with a bigger house with a fenced-in yard.

Broholmer Puppies – Veterinary Needs

As with all dog breeds, you’ll want to bring this doggo to the vet a few times during their first year. For instance, you can keep track of their growth and development and keep them up to date with their shots and boosters.

Then, for every year after that, you can bring them to the vet at least once a year for their annual checkup. But, unfortunately, this breed is prone to getting some health issues, such as:

  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Elbow Dysplasia
  • Arthritis
  • Heat Sensitivity
  • Cataracts
  • Entropion
  • Ectropion
  • Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA)

With proper care, the Broholmer dog has an average lifespan of about eight to ten years. 

Diet

As with all dogs, you’ll want to feed this doggo food that’s appropriate for their breed size, age, weight, and metabolism. With your vet’s approval, you can provide them with any high-quality kibble or canned wet food from a commercial dog food brand or homemade dog food.

Grooming

When it comes to grooming, this dog breed has little maintenance. However, you can give them a bath at home as needed or bring them to a professional grooming salon for good cleaning at least once a year.

On the other hand, this dogg breed does shed and drool a moderate amount. So, you’ll want to brush their coat at least once a week. Also, keep up with washing their face at least two to three times per week to stave off infection and odor.

Finally, be sure to keep up with brushing their teeth, cleaning their ears, and trimming their nails regularly.
