Are Norwegian Buhund dogs good with a hot dry climate? Are they good swimmers?

1 Comment


The Norwegian Buhund has a thick fur coat. So if they live in a warmer climate, they must have shade and fresh/cool water when outside. A.C when inside will help keep your dog cool. Like all dogs, each dog has a different perception of water and if they like to or want to swim. Introducing your dog/puppy early to water and making it a fun activity will help your Buhund learn that water is fun and a great way to cool off.

Are Norwegian Buhunds good with horses?

Buhunds work with horses in Norway. I bought my first Buhund from a breeder on a farm with horses. Essentially the Buhund is a farm dog! Buhunds do like to chase, meaning if you are riding on your horse with the Norwegian Buhund through the woods and the dog sees a deer or rabbit, say goodbye for ~ 20 minutes chase time. He'll find you though.
