Swedish Lapphund

The Swedish Lapphund dog breed originated from Sweden. It is one of three Lapphund breeds developed from a type of dog used by the Sami people for herding and guarding their reindeer.

Other names of the Swedish Lapphund are Lapphund, Lapland Spitz and Lapplandska Spets while the Swedish name of the breed is Svensk lapphund.

These dogs are very receptive and willing to work. They are alert, lively, kind and affectionate by nature. They can be very easy to train and very suitable for agility, obedience, herding and tracking. They are loyal, enthusiastic and tenacious. They are wonderful with children if they were raised with them. They get along very well with other dogs and if properly introduced, with other non-canine pets as well.
