Swedish Vallhund - Guide to Swedish Vallhunds

Description: The Swedish Vallhund is an ancient Viking breed of Spitz type dating more than a thousand years ago when they were possibly known as Vikingarnas Dogs. While this breed's exact origin is questioned, it is strongly believed this is an authentic Swedish breed thought to be related to the Welsh Corgi due to their similarities. The Swedish Vallhund is small, sturdy, alert, fearless, energetic and has a fox-like appearance. This breed's coat has characteristic harness markings and facial masks. The Swedish Vallhund is an all purpose farm dog and was most notably used to herd sheep and cattle.

In the early 1940s, Swedish Vallunds were almost extinct. Count Björn von Rosen along with Karl-Gustaf Zettersten took a genuine interest in reviving the breed and through their research, located a few remaining Swedish Vallhunds throughout the countryside of Sweden. Their breeding program was successful and because of their efforts, Swedish Vallhunds are in existance today. Swedish Vallhunds were first recognized as a breed by the Swedish Kennel Club in 1943.

The first Swedish Vallhunds were brought to the United States in 1985 and the Swedish Vallhund Club was founded a couple of years later. In 2007, the Swedish Vallhund was recognized by the American Kennel Club in the Herding Group. While this breed is still used for herding, because of their friendly, sweet and loyal nature, they also make great family dogs and companions. In addition, Swedish Vallhunds are exceptional in agility, obedience and as well as herding for which these dogs have earned titles at conformation shows.
