Finnish Spitz Dog Breed
Today's Finnish Spitz dog
stems from its ancestors, northern Spitz dogs, which were owned by
Finno-Ugrian tribes traveling across the lands of Eurasia and Finland.
It is theorized that these early dogs were used as watchdogs. Soon
after, they were used to help assist hunters.
It was not until the late
1960s that the Finnish Spitz was breeding in the United States. In
1988, they were officially admitted into the non-sporting group
category. Finnish Spitz dogs of today are mostly considered to be
household pets in the U.S. but are still used to hunt in Finland. They
hunt such animals as the black grouse and the capercaille bird.
Personality: Finnish Spitz dogs make excellent watchdogs and have average-to-medium levels of playfulness, affection, and energy. You will find that these dogs are not very friendly towards strangers and other pets, but their cold temperament towards outsiders makes them a loyal protector to its family. This dog is very independent and a bit stubborn, but also alert and inquisitive. They are generally good with children and other pets from the same household, but will bark incessantly when strangers approach.
Taking Care Of Your Finnish
Spitz: Upkeep of the Finnish Spitz requires daily exercise needed from
long walks or runs outside. Having a large fenced-in area for this dog
to roam is recommended. Due to its hunting ancestry, you must be
careful not to let this dog roam by itself without a leash in an area
that will attract it towards scent hunting. It will run off on its own
if not well trained. You can keep this dog outdoors due to its high
tolerance towards cold, but as all pets prefer, your Finnish Spitz will
appreciate and enjoy sleeping inside with the rest of the family.
