The Wolfspitz is an ancient breed of dog, once a companion and guard dog on the barges and boats that traveled the canals and rivers of Holland in the 17th and 18th centuries. Today he is almost exclusively a companion dog.

History

The Wolfspitz is a close cousin of the Samoyed, the Chow, the Norwegian Eland Dog, the Finnish Spitz, and the Pomeranian. In the 17th and 18th centuries, the Wolfspitz was a companion and guard dog on small ships called rhine barges on the Rhine River.

The Wolfspitz became Holland's most beloved dog during a time of political unrest. Holland was divided into two factions: the prince's supporters, or followers of the Prince of Orange, and the patriots.

Peronality

The Wolfspitz was bred more as a companion than as a guard dog. He is not a hunter, nor does he have an innate desire for a special task. He is, first and foremost, a devoted friend.

He is also intelligent and highly trainable. In fact, he is so smart, he can be a little mischievous. Expect the unexpected with these guys. Nevertheless, this breed easily learns proper dog manners and can do well in the obedience ring.
