The Dansk-Svensk Gårdshund (official German translation of the VDH: Danish-Swedish farm dog ., Eng Danish-swedish Farmdog, in Germany often Dansky ) is one of the International Federation Cynologique (FCI) finally recognized Danish - Swedish breed ( FCI Group 2 , Section 1.1, Standard No. 356 ).

Origin and history

The breed was developed from the long-known small working dogs of the Danish (mainly on Zealand ) and southern Swedish ( Scania ) farms. Danish dog lovers had adopted the old breeds and saved the last specimens and bred them on. Great emphasis was placed on robustness. Today the existence is secured. In 1987 the dogs were recognized nationally as a breed. In 1989 Denmark's old farm dog was presented to the public for the first time at the world dog show in Copenhagen with around 50 dogs. The FCI provisionally recognized the breed on July 5, 2008 and finally recognized it on April 29, 2019.


The Dansk-Svensk Gårdshund is more closely related to the pinschers than to the terriers , which is also reflected in the FCI classification. Its white, short fur with the colored spots or coat is somewhat reminiscent of the fox terrier or the jack russel. The breed standard describes spots of various sizes and colors (black, tan, brown, various shades of beige) in the predominantly white fur. The head is more typical of Pinschers, with hinged ears falling forward. The shoulder height is 32 to 37 centimeters. He is loyal to the farm and has no tendency to stray. The Gårdshund is described as a healthy dog, robust, alert, easy to train with little urge to move, but needs a lot of attention and activity.


Today he had kept like a family dog traditionally the task of house and barn as a Rattler be kept free of rats and mice. Loving and easy to train companion in everyday life who can adapt well to the needs of his family.
