Swedish Vallhund Puppies

The Swedish Vallhund is a purebred dog breed part of the herding group. Also known as the SV or the Vallhund, this breed was initially bred in Sweden in ancient times. First developed for tracking and flushing game, this doggo is friendly, energetic, and watchful today. If you want to learn more about Swedish Vallhund puppies, then keep reading. 

Where to get Swedish Vallhund Puppies

You can begin your search for this pup by calling your local animal shelter or breed rescue organization. Swedish Vallhund puppies, adults, or seniors are available for adoption.

Most of these dogs have been at these places for a long time, waiting for the right family to come along. So, you can adopt and not shop while still getting a new furry friend. Plus, you’ll provide them with a forever, loving home. Gosta…

On the other hand, if you have your heart set on getting a puppy and want to know where the dog came from, you can go through a reputable breeder. You can begin your search by looking at the AKC Marketplace for ethical breeders.

Luckily, you’ll be able to tell a good breeder from the rest because they’ll do the following:

  • Health screen and genetically test the parents before breeding to ensure it’s healthy and safe to do so (then get the puppies tested)
  • Have health documents and family tree history available for you to bring home upon adoption
  • Allow the parents and the litter to live in their home as part of the family without the use of kennels (aside from crate training)
  • Socialize and train the puppies as early as possible
  • Ensure the puppies are up to date with all of their vaccinations

In addition, a good breeder will want to meet with you in person to get to know you so you can meet them, the parents, and the litter before deciding on adoption. Also, they’ll be open and honest with you. For instance, they’ll answer all of your questions about the breeder, the breed, the dogs and litter, or the breeding and adoption processes.

So, if you find a breeder that doesn’t do the above, then you’ll want to avoid working with them. For instance, they might be a backyard breeder or a puppy mill, and they don’t breed the dogs in healthy or safe conditions. Also, they’re more interested in making a profit rather than finding the puppies good homes.

The Cost

The average coat of Swedish Vallhund puppies is between $1,500 and $2,300. However, the price can vary depending on a few factors, such as the time of year, the breeder’s location, the breed’s popularity, or the number of puppies in the litter.

Appearance

Swedish Vallhund puppies will grow to be medium-sized dogs, with males being slightly taller than females. For example, males can grow to be about 12.5 to 14 inches tall, while females can grow about 11.5 to 13 inches tall. Regardless of gender, this doggo should weigh between 20 and 35 pounds.

In addition, they have a short double coat that can come in the following coat colors and markings, such as:

  • Black
  • Blue
  • Gray
  • Red
  • White
  • Yellow
  • White Markings
  • Sable

Temperament

This dog breed will fit in well with any household. For example, they’re loyal and affectionate with their family members. Also, they’re great around young children, other dogs, and meeting new people.

However, they need early socialization and training. Otherwise, they might have wary or shy about meeting new people or dogs. Luckily, they’re easy to train.

Finally, they have high energy levels. So, you can provide them with a bigger house with a fenced-in yard rather than an apartment.

Swedish Vallhund Puppies – Veterinary Needs

As with all dogs, you’ll want to bring this pup to the vet at least once a year for their annual checkup. However, you’ll want to bring them to the vet a few times to keep track of their growth and development during their first year. Also, you can keep them up to date with their shots and boosters. 

This dog breed is relatively healthy, but they are known to get retinopathy or hip dysplasia.

This purebred has an average lifespan of about 12 to 15 years with proper care. 

Diet

With your vet’s approval, you can provide high-quality kibble or canned wet food from a commercial dog food brand or homemade dog food. However, you also want to ensure appropriate for their breed size, age, weight, and metabolism. 

Grooming

You won’t have to worry about grooming this pup too often. For example, you can bring them to a professional grooming salon about once every three to four months.

Also, they shed a lot. So, you’ll want to brush their coat at least once a day to keep it looking nice and to keep the loose hairs under control. 

Finally, remember to keep up with trimming their nails, cleaning their ears, and brushing their teeth regularly.
