If you are lucky enough to own this scarce breed, you'll enjoy an extremely sociable, intelligent and even-tempered companion. The Swedish Vallhund has been around since the Viking days and is prized for his herding instinct, handsome sturdy appearance and people-oriented eagerness to please. Your Swedish Vallhund puppy is easy to train and thrives on plenty of exercise, both physical and mental. This is also a talkative dog, so be prepared for lots of 'conversation.' An active owner who likes to involve his pet in most everything he does couldn't ask for a more fun-loving, alert and joyful companion.
