​​Hovawarts are one of the longest-lived and healthiest of the working dogs due to the stringent breeding regulations of the International Hovawart Federation.  Breeding within the HCNA means that before dogs can be bred, they must pass health, temperament and conformation tests and their pedigrees must evaluated for genetic diversity.
