Dog Dunker

The Dunker is a breed of dog native to Norway, developed for hunting large game, including deer, elk and fox.

Males generally measure between 50 and 55 cm at the withers, while females measure between 47 and 52 cm. The average weight generally varies between 15 and 20 kg.

The Dunker has an athletic, well-proportioned body, with a deep chest and muscular limbs. It has an elegant and harmonious silhouette, with a muscular neck and a strong back.

The head is medium sized, with a moderately broad skull and an elongated muzzle. It has medium-sized, oval-shaped eyes that are brown to dark in color. The ears are medium sized, set high on the head and carried drooping.

The coat is short, dense and tight, with a harsh, weather-resistant texture. The base color is blue and white, with black or fawn spots on the face, ears and back.

The Dunker is an energetic, intelligent and passionate dog when on the trail of its prey, but calm and balanced at home. He is loyal to his family and affectionate with children. He is a courageous and determined dog, with a strong hunting instinct, but he is also receptive to training and can adapt well to family life if given enough exercise and mental stimulation. As a hunting dog, the Dunker needs regular exercise and opportunities to exercise, ideally in an environment where he can use his natural scent and ability to follow a trail.

The Dunker is a hardy breed, but like all breeds, it can be prone to certain health conditions, such as hip and elbow problems, ear infections and skin allergies.
