The precise origin of the Dutch Smoushond is unknown, but these dogs appear to be connected to the German Schnauzer. During the 1800s, these dogs enjoyed great popularity and were seen as a gentlemen's companion. This breed was almost extinct after the Second World War, and initial attempts to save these dogs were unsuccessful. But in the 1970s, a lady by the name of Mrs. HM Barkman started collecting information on these dogs and communicated with sentences that could still remember these dogs. By making use of selective breeding, it was possible for her to re-create the Dutch Smoushond. Although these dogs are still not well known outside of the Netherlands, they are reliably secure.


The Dutch Smoushond is a very friendly, obedient and gracious dog. They do not require a lot of maintenance and make excellent companions. They have a tendency to be timid towards strangers, but they are very affectionate toward the people they know. This is a highly intelligent dog that is very flexible, and they have a lot of talents. These dogs are very attentive to their surroundings and also have a sense of humor. The Dutch Smoushond always tries to please their owners, and love the company of their families. It is not difficult to train the Dutch Smoushond, but training should, however, be consistent. These dogs get along well with children and other pets in the family.


The unkempt coat of the Dutch Smoushond is relatively easy to take care of. It is advised that the hair should be plucked twice per year by hand. This can either be done by a professional or by owners of this breed. Excess hair should be removed from between the spaces between the pads and also on the inside of the ears between regular grooming sessions.


The Dutch Smoushond is very keen on pleasing, and this makes their training very easy. It is imperative that you are always consistent in their training; otherwise, they will try to dominate when they see that the handler is fairly relaxed. The will be friendly with children and also accept other animals in the household. In general, this breed also gets along well with other dogs.
