The Bavarian Mountain Hound is a medium-sized scenthound that has been long-cherished by hunters and gamekeepers in the Bavarian Mountain region. The breed is ideal for either hunters or very physically active individuals and families. With early socialization, they can make good companions for homes with kids and other dogs. Training should be pretty easy, along with grooming, however, exercise needs are rather extensive. BMHs often live 12-15 years with very few health concerns.
