Developed north of the Arctic Circle to herd reindeer, the Finnish Lapphund has a thick, water-repellant double coat that protects him from extreme cold. Agile and alert, this breed is eager to please and has a calm temperament, making him an ideal family pet. His sweet face is likened to that of a teddy bear. The Finnish Lapphund needs daily exercise to keep him from becoming bored as well as regular grooming.
