Overview
An Arctic spitz breed, the Finnish Lapphund breed originated in 7000 BC in Finland. They were highly adept as watch dogs and at herding reindeer. Today the Finnish Lapphund is popular as herding dogs of cattle and sheep and as companions in their native Finland and other European countries. However, they are quite rare in North America.
Character
The Finnish Lapphund is strongly built, of medium size, sturdy and hardy. They possess a bright, intelligent expression and a striking appearance. Finnish Lapphund's are active, agile, and intelligent.

Does your Finnish Lapphund bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
The Finnish Lapphund breed is loyal, devoted, and calm. They are excellent with children, dogs, and other household pets. The Finnish Lapphund is wary and suspicious of strangers and will bark to alert their family. They are non-aggressive, affectionate, courageous, and exuberant.
Care
Regular brushing is required of the Finnish Lapphund breed. Special attention should be given to the coat during periods of heavy shedding. Bathing should only be done when absolutely necessary. This breed is relatively healthy although some are prone to cataracts and GPRA. They do best in colder climates.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Finnish Lapphund is a double coat breed. The outer coat is water-resistant, long, profuse, coarse, and straight. The under coat is downy, dense, and thick. Males shed heavily once a year, females shed heavily twice a year.
Training
The Finnish Lapphund must have early socialization and obedience training. Sessions that are short and varied are best as Finnish Lapphund's have a tendency to become bored easily. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, and consistency. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Finnish Lapphund puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
This highly active breed requires an active owner. Finnish Lapphund's do best in a large securely fenced yard or a rural setting with room to roam and a job to do. The Finnish Lapphund excels in agility, obedience, fly-ball, search and rescue, and as therapy dogs. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

Finnish Lapphunds are not trustworthy off a leash. They will wander off, chase off after something, and you stand a good chance of losing your dog/puppy. If you don't have secure tall fencing or won't keep the dog on leash 100% this is NOT the breed for you.

As stated the Finnish Lapphund can be trained from the age of a puppy but will run given the opportunity. Mine often will go to a familiar place like my aunt's or to our rental house. She will come to the sound of a bell.

The Finnish Lapphund is extremely intelligent and easy to train. Always wanting to please its owner, it's a highly versatile breed to train for any dog sport, such as obedience and agility, and it has also been used overseas as a very successful tracking dog. The dog is also good at Rally-O and Fly Ball.

We have many squirrels and other animals in the yard. Finnish Lapphunds love to hunt and run the underground trails of rodents.

Yes, they do shed. After I thinned the hair on my Finnish Lapphund he has been shedding almost not at all.

My Finnish Lapphund only stays in the home, however he needs a lot of exercise and grooming.

My Finnish Lapphund is trained to open a normal door with a rope. She loves it inside and outside. She is very independent but likes to be where people are.

They run around $1000-$1500. I got my Finnish Lapphund a year ago and he was for sale for $1200.

As stated earlier a lot of people get them not knowing their energy level and requirement. I found my sweet beautiful girl at a shelter for $85 she's totally priceless!
