The Swedish Vallhund from Scandinavia almost became extinct, but in the mid 20th century a group of conscientious breeders helped restore the numbers of this active little breed. A member of the Arctic Spitz family, the Vallhund was breed as a herding dog, and they excelled in their abilities to keep the flocks of sheep together.
They are an intelligent, affectionate and active little dog that make great family companions as they are extremely loyal. They are somewhat aloof towards other dogs and people until they get to know them, but should not be aggressive. They make good watch dogs.

Grooming- extremely low maintenance, weekly brushing and a bath a few times a year, when needed.

Exercise- they enjoy plenty of exercise and like to be doing something as they are an energetic dog. Regular walks and off lead runs will help to keep them happy and healthy.

Health- For Diet and other general dog health information Health/Nutrition
