The German Bracken were the original hunting dogs that had "the finest nose" and developed a strong form that followed the trail and trails, but only the most reliable and tenacious Bracken to find the lost trail of the hunting game Was leased. From these particular Bracken, all the Liam Hounds (Leithunde) and Leishhounds (Schwyshande) were tied up, including the Bayerischer Gebirgschswissehund (Bavarian Mountain Scent Hound).
After the end of the eighteenth century and the beginning of the nineteenth, the Hanoverian Scunthound had developed and was a breed of choice by hunters in the lower elevations. Following the 1848 revolution and advances in hunting and firearms, a dog was needed "after the shot" to track injured game in more mountainous areas. The heavy Hanoverian scunthound was not suitable for work. To meet this need for lighter, in the 1870s, Baron Karg-Bebenberg became the Bavarian Mountain Mountainshound with the Red Mountain Scunthound crossing the Reichenhall, a more agile hound, a Hanoverian scunthound. In 1912, the Club for Bavarian Mountain Scunthound was founded in Munich, Germany and is the only recognized club for the breed in that country.
Today, these dogs are hunting companions for professional hunters and gamekeepers. Although still rare, there is a growing interest in this breed, with clubs from many countries including Great Britain and the United States, as well as Germany.
