The Swedish Lapphund is a versatile purebred dog. They were initially bred as hunting and guarding dogs. Later on, they became herding dogs to help domesticate reindeer. Today, this doggo is a great family companion known for being lively, intelligent, and playful. If you want to learn more about Swedish Lapphund puppies, then keep reading.

Where To Get Swedish Lapphund Puppies

You’ll be able to find this dog breed where ever you can adopt dogs. For instance, if you want a puppy and know their health background, you can go through a reputable breeder. The American Kennel Club does recognize this pup as a dog breed, so a good place to start your search for an ethical breeder will be the AKC Marketplace. Gusten…

You can tell a good breeder from the rest because they’ll do the following:

  • Socialize and train the puppies as early as possible
  • Ensure the puppies are up to date with their vaccinations
  • Health screen and genetically test the parents before breeding and then get the puppies tested
  • Have health documents and family tree history available for you to bring home upon adoption
  • Be able to answer all of your questions about the breed, the litter, the parents, the process, or the breeder

In addition, an ethical breeder will want to meet with you in person and allow you to meet the parents and the puppies.

If a breeder doesn’t do any of the above, they might be a puppy mill or a backyard breeder. Avoid these breeders since they’re more interested in making a profit rather than finding good homes for the puppies. In addition, they don’t breed dogs in healthy or safe conditions.

Alternatively, you can call your local animal shelter or rescue organization. These dogs are looking for great forever homes, so you can save a dog’s life while gaining a new furry friend. However, you might find Swedish Lapphund puppies, adults, seniors, or mixed breeds. Tjejer…

The Cost

The average cost for this dog breed is between $1,500 and $2,000. However, the price might vary, depending on the breeder’s location, the time of year, the breed’s popularity, the puppy’s lineage, and more.

Appearance

Swedish Lapphund dogs are medium in size. For instance, they can grow to be between 16 and 20 inches tall. Also, they weigh between 30 and 45 pounds. They also have a long double coat that can only come in solid black or have white markings.

Temperament

There is a lot to love about the Swedish Lapphund. For example, they’re loyal and affectionate with their family members. Also, they’re open to meeting strangers. They enjoy human interaction. However, they might be wary when it comes to being around other dogs or young children. Early training and early socialization will be needed for this doggo to grow. Luckily, they’re easy to train since they’re eager to please. Arvivth…

Also, the Swedish Lapphund makes an excellent watchdog. Even though they’ll welcome strangers, you can be sure that they’ll alert you with barking if something or someone comes near their territory. However, this dog breed loves to bark. They’ll be vocal to alert you, to get your attention, or just to listen to themselves talk.

In addition, this doggo is playful, and they love to hang out with their humans. They have high energy levels and will enjoy having a job to do every day. They can live in an apartment but would much rather have a bigger house with a fenced-in yard. They can run around and explore the yard. A long walk every day will be great to keep them healthy and fit.

Swedish Lapphund Puppies – Veterinary Needs

For the first year, be sure to bring your puppy to the vet a couple of times. So you can ensure they’re growing and developing well. Also, you can keep them up to date with their shots and boosters. Then, for every year after that, you can bring them to the vet once a year for their annual checkup. Gusten…

However, this dog breed is known to get some health conditions, even though they’re relatively healthy. So, keep an eye out for the following health issues:

  • Diabetes
  • Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA)
  • Hip Dysplasia

With excellent care, this dog breed has an average lifespan of about 12 to 14 years.

Diet

This dog breed can eat anything that your vet approves. For example, you can give them high-quality kibble or canned wet food from a commercial dog food brand or homemade dog food. Be sure to keep the food appropriate for their breed size, age, weight, and metabolism. Arvivth…

Grooming

In addition to brushing their teeth, trimming their nails, and cleaning their ears regularly, this dog breed needs weekly brushing. Swedish Lapphunds shed a moderate amount, so brushing weekly will help keep the loose hairs under control. Also, they need an occasional bath. So, you can bring them to a professional grooming salon at least once a month or once every other month.
