BREED DETAILS

GENERAL
The Swedish Vallhund is known as 'the little cattle dog of the vikings'. The dog breed closely resembles the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, but it is currently unknown whether there is any relation between the two breeds. The Vallhund is a canine that can take the role of a watchdog, a cattle herder or even a farmhand. They are a fearless and powerful, yet small and healthy dog breed that tends to bark and nip.

COLOR
Any color between gray and red is acceptable for a Swedish Vallhund. Lighter shades and markings are strongly desired to highlight facial features, chest and legs.

COAT
The dog has a medium length coat that is slightly harsh. The outer coat is close and tight while the inner coat is soft.

PERSONALITY
This is the kind of dog breed that makes a great companion. They love the affection from humans and are very dedicated to their owners. They like to be the center of attention and are very playful. Owners are rarely disappointed with this dog's abilities or sense of humor.

CARE
This dog breed doesn't have a history of health problems and is relatively easily groomed. They are an average shedder and should only bathe when needed. They need to be walked for exercise, but don?t require a yard to run around in because they are well enough indoors.

TRAINING
The Swedish Vallhund should be properly socialized and trained to avoid becoming too over protective as an adult. They are very suitable for a watchdog or guard dog despite their smaller size.

ACTIVITY
The Swedish Vallhund is suitable for many different activities including herding and dog agility. The Vallhund is an energetic breed that loves to run around and play.
