About the Drever...

Grooming: Short coarse hair, easily maintained. Does shed some. Truly a "Wash-n-Wear" breed.

Things to know: Some like to dig. Because they are a hunter they are not an “off leash”  dog. They will follow their nose! Diligent obedience training is a must  since they love to hunt. Drevers are very loving, gentle and generally  easy going, But they are still a hound which can be stubborn and  tenacious requiring dedicated training.

Activity: Drevers love to run and play! They are great companions for any outdoor  activity  (hiking, biking, walking, etc.) They love to hang out with  their people doing whatever you are doing. Content to be a couch potato  as long as have some stimulating daily activity. Happiest with a good  balanced routine. Any activity to stimulate their hunting abilities and  scent work is greatly enjoyed by the Drever. They are excellent hunters.

Health: Extremely healthy and sound breed. There are no real health issues that  plague the Drever. The average life expectancy is 15 years of age.  Drevers are very sturdy agile dogs.
