Anonymous asked:
How much do Swedish Vallhund puppies cost? Do they get along with other dogs?

1 Comment


The Swedish Vallhund is not the most popular breed of dog and because of that, they come with a price tag. The average price of a pup will range from $1,500.00 - $2,500.00 depending on the breeder, the size of the litter, and if the puppy is show quality or not. As long as the dog is with its litter mates and mother up until at least 8 weeks old and is socialized with other dogs as a puppy, the Swedish Vallhund should be great with other dogs. Training and socialization is 90% of how a dog gets along with other dogs.

Anonymous asked:
Do Swedish Vallhunds tend to carry the gene for the destructive DM disease? Do breeders test for and guarantee the absence of this or other genetic defects?

1 Comment


The Swedish Vallhund does not tend to carry the gene for Destructive DM disease. However, if you are concerned about this disease, finding a reputable, responsible and knowledgeable breeder whom will do the genetic testing for it is best. A breeder whom has nothing to hide and takes pride in their dogs and pups will happily talk with you about what health guarantee's and health checks he/she does on their dogs upfront.

Anonymous asked:
Does the Swedish Valhund ever produce puppies with longer coats,i.e. a "fluffy"?



No, the Swedish Valhund only has one coat type for the breed. If a dog/puppy displays any other coat type, the pedigree of that puppy is most likely not purebred.


They can have fluffy coat but it does not happen too often. I have not seen any in the US only overseas.
