Hi! My name is triina! i'm a finnish lapphund and i'm 5 years old.
Finnish Lapphunds were first used as reindeer herders for the indigenous people in Nordic countries such as Russia, Sweden, Finland, and Norway. Sweden and Norway were believed to be the first countries to set the standard for the Finnish Lapphund prior to Wold War II, however after the war this breed was in danger of extinction due to a massive distemper outbreak. The Finnish Kennel Club set the standards for this breed, and named it Lappish Herder (also called Kukonharjunlainen), in 1966 the breed underwent reassessment and the Finnish Lapphund was then given definition in 1967.
The Finnish Lapphund is a medium-sized dogs with strong physiques. They have a double coat which consist of coarse, long topcoats and fluffy, short undercoats. The hair on their necks and head are thicker than the rest of their body, giving them the appearance of having a mane.
The Finnish Lapphund is known as a friendly, intelligent and sociable dog who loves to work. They are a very active and energetic breed. Due to they social nature they are quite good with children and other animals.
Our dogs should bring us joy, companionship, and a sense of pride. But when a dog continually disobeys or exhibits behavioral issues, dealing with them can be a constant source of stress for both us and them.
Making sure your dog is properly trained is the responsibility of every dog owner—not just for your dog’s welfare, but for your own peace of mind as well.
No matter its age, breed, or temperament, every dog can benefit from a little instruction. Here are five reasons to consider training your dog, or having her enrolled in an obedience class.
1. Training benefits both dog and owner
When it comes to training, your dog isn’t the only one reaping the rewards. Working regularly with your dog helps you to understand her needs better, making you an even better owner as well.
It can also be a great source of exercise and open up new possibilities for you—the better behaved your dog is, the easier it is to take her along wherever you go.
2. For their own safety
The better you can control your dog with voice commands, the better you can protect her when unrestrained. A dog that bolts when off the leash is much more likely to run in front of a car, or to slip out the front door before you’re ready to leave.
Also, should your dog ever become lost or need to be placed in a shelter, being well-trained only increases the likelihood she will behave well, or in the event it’s necessary, be placed with a new family.
3. It helps your dog to be more sociable
As your dog learns to respect boundaries and behave properly in social situations, other dogs (and people) will be more comfortable and at ease around her as well. As a result, more of these interactions will be positive experiences for your dog.
If he begins to enjoy these social encounters, your dog will be more relaxed and manageable with each interaction.
4. Training makes boarding your dog go smoothly
That increased sociability we just mentioned becomes even more critical when it’s time to board your dogor when friends offer to take her in while you’re out of town.
It’s one thing for your dog to obey owner’s commands, but a successfully trained dog will also follow others’ orders when you’re not there. Unless you want to cut your vacation short because your dog isn’t playing well with others, making sure she’s properly trained should be a top priority.
5. Because you can teach old dogs new tricks
There are plenty of myths out there that might be stopping you from moving forward with your dog’s education. But many of them are just plain wrong, and some may even be causing you to encourage bad behavior.
For one, a dog’s age is no indication of his capacity to be trained. Older dogs may be need a few physical accommodations, particularly larger dogs or those with weight problems, but they can learn to take instruction just as well as younger dogs.
A well-behaved dog experiences less stress, interacts better with others, and forms a stronger bond with you. At Pet Palace, our team is committed to helping your dog live the healthiest, happiest life possible, and a well-behaved dog will have much more fun on her next stay with us.
