I'd like some information about the Vallhund. I had a mix once, german shepherd and beagle. Looked so much like the Vallhund that when I stumbled upon photos of the Vallhund I fell in love with the breed. I live in the Metro/Washington DC area (Virginia), are there any breeders near me? Will there be any dog shows with Vallhunds near me any time soon? I'd like to know about the nipping I keep reading about, I have two children (7 & 5), would that be a prob em? Sincerely, Diane

I have a dog that we found two years ago. She had hung out around my wife's store for 2-3 days in the pouring rain. Our first impressions were that we had a shepherd/corgi mix and the vet also said this. I had thought her "no tail" was the result of abus , but the vet said it was normal (a corgi feature). No one claimed her and she has been the best and smartest dog I ever owned. One day, I was looking through an encyclopedia of dog breeds and saw the Swedish Vallhund - short, no tail, and a shepherd-lik head. All the shaping matches my dog. I have gone on all the web sites I could find. Her shape, behavior, and temperament all match the Vall breed. The stumbling block for me was her color, which was basically white like a white shepherd. She's also pretty overweight. Then I saw Hurstfield's yellow sable Valls and my dog has gotten darker the past year (after a couple sheddings)to where her fur is more blonde than white and her hackles are brown when raised. She is about 14.5 inches at the shoulder and is extremely smart and loyal. I am pretty much convinced she may be a Vall, but my wife says I'm crazy and it's just wishful thinking. My fear now is that if she really is a Vall, she somehow came from somewhere and they would want her back or make e pay for her. Even if she isn't, I have come to love the breed and heartily support their acceptance.

As an owner of a British Hurstfield Vallhund it is always interesting to see others as the breed is still rare in the UK especially the northern parts of this country.It is usual to be asked what is your Corgi crossed with. This is no longer amusing as she is now nearly 9 years old!

These dogs are great. we have just brought home a siberian husky, but hope to bring another dog into our home next year. Could you give me some basic price ranges and tell me how they do in a home with different dogs already present. We live down state i Michigan and get up to Charlevoix a few times a year. Michelle M

Thought I would send an update of Chubinz and Wulfie. They are the greatest. It is like having two more kids. The Valls, however, are easier to get along with than are my teenagers. The pups play together very well and get along with other dogs in the family. They LOVE my dad's horses. THey are always on the lookout for something to do and have a ton of energy. I would love to have more, but two is really plenty, as these do not grow up and move out like people children (are supposed to do). Please feel free to email me if you want to hear more. I will try to send pics for the page. Cindy Adam

What a fabulous site - I shall carry on surfing the other links in a moment. I have 2 Swedish Vallhunds, brother and sister from the same litter, called Yann and Hope. They are 3 years old now and while they can still be little devils at times - I would not change them for the world!! They are wonderful and I could not recommend the breed highly enough. They make great companions and are loyal guard dogs. GO VALLHUNDS GO!

I've been in dog rescue for 22 years, in Pembroke Corgis/Corgi rescue for 15 yrs. and have been intrigued with the Vallhund. I should NOT visit these pages, as the pictures of such lovely dogs entice me further into the SV territory. These dogs remind me ery much of what the Pembroke should be(and sadly anymore) may not always turn out to be;a sturdy,energetic, sound herding dog. Could this dynamic, cold weather doggie make it in sunny So.Cal.?? Maybe so!

Hello Everyone, We have arrived home with our second Vallhund from Caval Kennel. This puppy is a grey male with a full tail. His name is Wulfgar, a Viking name, we will call him Wulfie. He is so sweet. CHubinz is going to 1 year old on September 27th. She is not too knocked out with Wulfie yet, but I know they will be good friends, as Chubinz as a rule loves everyone. Best wishes to all...

I am owner of a Swedish Vallhund. He is soon six months and I have had him since the second of July this year. He is lovely an when he is not sleeping he spends his time thinking of how to keep me busy to prevent him from carrying around everything that i on the floor putting it in places where I never think of looking when I want it. But in any case he is just lovely. Right now he is barking at a cat hoping I will stop sitting here in front of the computer and play with him instead. This is the first tim I find a moment to sit down. If anyone is interested I would be happy to chat about whatever comes to your mind. It might be somewhat irregularly, because Asterix take almost all my time. But other days will come... Greatings from Sweden, Asterix and Ingela
