Greetings! We are Daniela and Dubravko. Since we have always been animal and nature lovers, we decided to leave Zagreb, our home city, and move to the countryside. After a long search for a perfect place in nature and after a lot of hard work on the land and our house we moved into our little heaven: ranch of 23 000 m2 with a 120-year-old authentic wooden house in a village called Cerje Letovanićko. Surrounded by greenery and peace we enjoy all of nature’s gifts at a distance of just 35 km from Zagreb, the Croatia’s capital city.

Our animal family is big (horses, dogs, cats) and they all have their little piece of heaven in which they enjoy our great care and love.

Why and how a Hovawart?

It wasn’t easy to find the perfect dog breed which would fit our needs and wishes. A dog on a ranch, besides a friend and a pet, has to be a guardian. We live in a very poorly inhabited area and it is important to own a dog which will announce intruders, both humans and animals. And that is what led us to Hovawarts (more about the Hovawart under About Hovawart). Description of the breed was exactly what we were looking for. Unfortunately, we were unpleasantly surprised when we found out that the Hovawart is an unknown breed in Croatia. Therefore, a new search began: Hovi search! After about a year and after a lot of googling and searching our little black and tan fur ball arrived from Poland, our girl Leelah. It was love at first sight! And as a very good friend once said: “Once a Hovi, always a Hovi!”
