Swedish Vallhund

Swedish Vallhund The Swedish Vallhund breed is a type of spitz and some recognize it as the ancestor of the Welsh Corgi. The ancient Swedish Vallhunds were on the brink of extinction until dedicated efforts were made to propagate their numbers. As it is, they are still very rare. The Swedish Vallhund's Behavior Source: Wikipedia, swedishvallhund.com/svcahx.html Recommended for: pet, working dog The Swedish Vallhund dog breed is a very loud breed. It has a tendency toward barking at anything, strangers, animals, friends, or objects. This can be corrected with training. It makes for an excellent family companion. It is confident, lively, inquisitive, courageous, loyal, and independent. They are eager to please and this makes training easier. This is necessary because the Swedish Vallhunds, or SV's as they are called, are problem-solvers and will soon train themselves in ways not to humans' liking. They are healthy and hardy animals which makes them good companions for outdoor activities such as hiking and camping. Remember that breed only provides a general clue as to any individual dog's actual behavior. Make sure to get to know dogs well before bringing them into your home.

The Swedish Vallhund's Origins and History Source: Wikipedia, swedishvallhund.com/svcahx.html Country/Region of Origin: Sweden Original purpose: herding Name: 'Vallhund' means herding dog in Swedish. Historical notes: Swedish Vallhund dogs date back to the time of the Vikings and once accompanied them on their journeys. The Swedish Vallhunds are small and therefore herded by rounding up and nipping the cattles' hocks. They were first brought to the US in the 1980's.
