Norwegian Buhund - Guide to Norwegian Buhunds

Description: The Norwegian Buhund is an ancient breed with likely ancestors dating back to 900 A.D. In Norway, six canine skeletal remains were discovered in a Viking grave at the Gokstad excavation site and are believed to be related to the modern Norwegian Buhund. In ancient times, these beloved dogs traveled with the Vikings and were buried with their owners with the belief they would still perform their duties - which included providing protection - in the afterlife.

The Norwegian Buhund is typical Spitz type which was bred to be an all purpose farm dog. Their functional duties included herding and guarding livestock as well as providing protection to property and family. In addition, they were known to hunt wolves and bears in very old times. This breed is medium in size, compact and squarely built, has prick ears, a curled over the back, plumed tail and an alert expression.

In 1920, the first Norwegian Buhund Show took place in Jaeren, Norway. The show was credited to the efforts of Norway's state counsel John Saeland who was a Buhund enthusiast. In 1939, the Norsk Buhundklubb or Norsk Buhund Club was founded and an emphasis was placed on selecting only the very best dogs for breed type and working ability. The Norwegian Buhund is still used as a working farm dog in its native Norway while in other parts of the world, they are widely used as a companion and family pet.
