Overview
A great sense of humor and presence, the Swedish Vallhund is sure to liven up your life. Guarding instincts are usually present and are wary of strangers, however this breed loves attention. Even-tempered and affectionate, this breed also shows signs of herding, nipping at the ankles of people. However, Swedish Vallhunds can be trained not to do so as they are generally intelligent.
Character
The Swedish Vallhund is an intelligent, spontaneous, and energetic breed. Used as an alarm dog, this breed is prone to barking and loves to do so. Also used for herding purposes, this breed can do well in many categories such as obedience, herding, working, and ratting.
Temperament
The Swedish Vallhund has a very even temperament and great disposition. Generally good with children, given the children are properly trained themselves to handle this breed. Very affectionate, loving and playful, this breed makes a great family companion. Good around other pets but not recommended for a home with cats unless properly socialized at an early stage of life.
Care
Moderate shedding, the Swedish Vallhund doesn't require much grooming. Combing occasionally will suffice. Bathing only when necessary. Dry towel will remove any excess hair or dirt without bathing. Dry shampoo can also be used.
Coat
Medium length hair, tight topcoat, and harsh. Undercoat is soft and dense. The Swedish Vallhund has fine hair along lines of ears. Hair should remain slightly longer on neck, topcoat frigid and coarse, while undercoat remains soft and silky.
Training
An intelligent little breed, the Swedish Vallhund does well in obedience training. Typically easy to housebreak and train, this breed would make a good herding companion. Can also be used for watch dogging if proper training takes place. Gentle hand is required for this breed.
Activity
Swedish Vallhunds do well in an apartment environment if given proper exercise. An active breed, they do not require a fenced yard however does enjoy roaming free. One long daily walk should be enough to keep this rambunctious fellow happy.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Swedish Vallhund puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

Yes, the Swedish Vallhund does shed throughout the year. But the better quality food you feed the dog and the more you brush the dog, the less hair will be around your home.

When I move out I am thinking about getting a midsized dog, that can work on a farm. I know Swedish Vallhund dogs are herders, but do they do well with other dogs, cats, rabbits, children, ex. Please give me any info on this breed. A little goes a long way.

My Swedish Vallhund love kids, they go after squirrels, cats, birds, opposumns and other such things. I suspect if they were acclimated to small animals they would be ok. But it is good to remember that besides herding, these dogs have been used on farms to get rid of vermin. So the small animal thing needs to be sorted out -- what is good and what is bad.
