Origin

Denmark

NOTE: The Danish Chicken Dog should not be confused with the Danish/Swedish Farmdog . The Danish/Swedish Farmdog and the Old Danish Chicken Dog are two entirely different breeds. This was mistakenly published in the Bruce Fogle's Encyclopedia of the Dog; the Farmdog was never known as the Chicken Dog. The book has the Danish/Swedish Farmdog listed under the name Old Danish Chicken Dog and has the true Old Danish Chicken Dog named as the Old Danish Pointer. In the Danish world, there is no confusion; the confusion existing only among non-Danish speakers. Websites often make the confusion (including those of breeders), but it doesn't happen on Danish websites. The reason being that Bruce Fogle's Encyclopedia of the Dog is the only English language dog breed book which has the Danish/Swedish Farmdog pictured and described, but has it listed as Danish Chicken Dog. This has caused the confusion in the English speaking (and reading) world. Danish: hoensehund (hønsehund) – “hoense” means hen (a female chicken); –“hund” means dog.
