Do you like to have a rare, genuin Swedish breed , healthy, strong minded, highly intelligent and active companion for traning and competion. Then Swedish lapphund is the breed for you!
Many breeds was created the last 100-150 years, but Swedish lapphund is created by nature over tousends of tousends years. The breedtype is very old and look the same as before the pedigree breeding started. I have shared my life with the breed since 1986 and just love them. I have competed and/or trained with them in agility, flyball, gametracking, tracking, rally obedience, obedience and herding. I have also puppybuyers and friends with Swedish lapphund who use them for hunting mostly on elk.
The breed is orginally a herding and hunting dog. I think they have much more common with other herding breeds than hunting breeds and classic group 5 breeds. They are friendly, love people, hightly intelligent, easy to motivate and love to train. A perfect breed.
If you look at the breed average for the result from Mentalbeskrivning (Who is a type of mentaltest. ) You can see that Swedish lapphunds are curious/fearless ( Nyfikenhet/orädsla), Outgoing ( Socialietet) and playfull ( Lekfullhet). With low agression (Aggressivitet ) and low hunting interest ( jJaktintresse). Worth to know is that the hunting interest is often, large in the breed but running after a fake hare is not the same :P
