Calling all Wizards To the Hovawart School of Witchcraft & Wizardry

Do you think they come and play?
The Hovawart is a Magical Creature. And in the Hovawart School of Witchcraft & Wizardry we study how it is like to live side by side with a Hovawart in our Care for Magical Creatures class. What does a Hovawart need and expect from Muggles - those not yet touched by the Hovawart's magic?

Unlike the school with the name that sounds a lot like ours, we do welcome Muggles! We invite all Muggles to come and hear the tales of the Wizards - those that have been touched by the Hovawart's magic.

After all, the choice for a particular Magical Creature breed requires a good match with the Muggle, in life style as well as temperament, and real-life info from Wizards is of key importance for Muggles to choose the right Magical Creature breed. A good match makes happy Hovawarts and happy Muggles!

We are calling all Wizards to the Hovawart School of Witchcraft & Wizardry. Maybe once upon a time, when you were a Muggle yourself, you found it difficult to find stories about Hovawarts, as compared to other Magical Creatures? I did. And I felt a little like going in way over my head when we got Kenzo as our first Hovawart, solely based on the recommendations of a friendly - and competent - breeder, together with the occasional Wizard's blog/website and the obligatory breed encyclopedia.

What I would like to achieve together with you Wizards, is to provide real life information for Muggles to learn more about Hovawarts. A place where Muggles can read how we play, what kind of training and activities we undertake. What makes Hovawarts special to us, and how they made us into Wizards. The role they came to play in our lives. And the hard times we shared. Helping Muggles to make the best choice possible if a Hovawart could be the Magical Creature for them, or at least what to expect. What do you think? Shall we help them?

Here is how Wizards can participate. We are excited to hear about you and your Hovawart!

Coming up soon ... the first installment: Wizard Kelsey and her Hovawart Ethanah!


Last but not least, a big Thank You to AJ from I Still Want More Puppies, for being the creative mastermind behind the whole Harry Potter pun.


  1. Live long and prosper, Hovawart students! (Ok, so it's too early in the morning for me to think of Harry Potter metaphors and I'm on Star Trek default.)

    Seriously -- what a great project! I'm sure you'll all add a lot to the scant information about Hovawarts that exists, and spread their reputation as wonderful companions far and wide.

  2. Sounds like an interesting project!

  3. I love it! Are you going to separate them into houses? I've always wanted to be in Hufflepup or Gryffindog. :)

  4. This Muggle is very interested to learn more about Hovawarts. But if this Harry Potter wordplay continues, who's going to be Voldemort?

  5. @Edie
    Thank you, hope that a lot of Hovawart Wizards will join. I am excited!

    Thanks you!

    Haha, Hufflepup and Gryffindog! Hilarious, your are so good at this :)

    As this is a Hovawart tale, they already chased Voldemort out of the gates!

  6. Hi Y'all,

    Just hopped by to catch up on your happenings and say hello!

    Y'all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  7. Hey, I got a muggle that could use some Hovawart training! Can I send her to ya? And can I send June Buggie too?
