The Schillerstövare is strong but of somewhat elegant built. The body is rectangular and should give the impression of speed and endurance. It must be well angulated and well made for maximum strength to pursue prey during a long hunting season in hard winter climate. The temperament is even, calm and easy to train and it is known as a nice family dog although it is foremost kept as hunting dog.
