Farm dog

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Farm dogs are originally to guard the court (ie a plot of land with buildings) used dogs , so they are among the guard dogs . This type of dog can still be found in some villages today. One breed of dog that also refers to this task by name is the Hovawart . Until the beginning of the 19th century, farm dogs were commonly referred to as Hovawarts.

This term is not used for dogs kept at court (in the castle). For this see society dog .
