Swedish Lapphund

A typical Nordic Spitz, developed to herd reindeer and withstand cold, harsh weather conditions, the Swedish Lapphund is highly trainable and adaptable. He responds well to persuasive rather than corrective training methods and requires regular tactile companionship.

The Swedish Lapphund is not suited to being a kennel or yard dog and will soon become something of a nuisance barker and an escape artist if regularly isolated from the family.

Naturally energetic and highly intelligent, he requires an active and rewarding lifestyle.
