Our senior manager Helga Hutter has bred Hovawart for 40 years, it almost belongs to the family tradition that a Hovawart lives in our house! Now the time has come. Iduna is the new family member in the Hutter-Haus and we are all very happy and look forward to winter, when Iduna is welcoming you!

In Norse mythology, Iðunn is a goddess associated with apples and youth. Iðunn is attested in the Poetic Edda, compiled in the 13th century from earlier traditional sources, and the Prose Edda, written in the 13th century by Snorri Sturluson. In both sources, she is described as the wife of the skaldic god Bragi, and in the Prose Edda, also as a keeper of apples and granter of eternal youthfulness.

The Hovawart is a medium to large size German dog breed. The name of the breed means “an estate guard dog”, which is the original use for the breed. The breed originated in the Black Forest region and was first described in text and paintings in medieval times.
The Hovawart does exceptionally well in search and rescue, tracking and working dog activities.
