Canada’s #1 Finnish Lapphund -
The Finnish Lapphund is a medium sized, long and heavily coated herding breed. They
are strong, sound, athletic, and quite active. They are extremely friendly and adapt
well to family life with a gentleness and charm that makes them a joy to be around.
They are highly intelligent and easily trained, making wonderful companions for the
family looking for a medium sized athletic dog. They make wonderful pet therapy
dogs, and can easily be trained for competitive agility, obedience, rally, herding,
and tracking. Height at the shoulder ranges from 18-
The Finnish Lapphund is a fairly new breed in Canada, having gained recognition from the Canadian Kennel Club in 2009. MySidekick Finnish Lapphunds are very proud to have been one of the first kennels in Canada breeding Finnish Lapphunds, including having owned and the first Finnish Lapphund in history to become a Canadian Champion (Ch. Sugarok Aspen). We are also proud to own the #1 Finnish Lapphund in Canada in 2010 (Ch. Sugarok North of the Border) as part of the foundation of our breeding program.
We currently have Finnish Lapphund Puppies Available.
