Welcome to Minikota Swedish Vallhunds
Hello from Minnesota!
We are an AKC Swedish Vallhund Breeder Of Merit located in southwestern Minnesota. Our dogs are part of our family, living in our home (not in a kennel). We have been active in showing them in conformation, training for basic obedience, exposing them to various livestock, and doing "unofficial" therapy dog work since early 2004. When we aren't working, we enjoy hanging out together, and camping when the weather permits. We are lucky to be owned by such a great group of dogs!
Updates as of January 19, 2018
Litter planned for Spring/Summer 2018. Contact us if interested in receiving our questionnaire, which needs to be filled out in order to be considered for one of our puppies and to be added to our waiting list.
Our puppies are raised in our home as part of our family. They are started on housebreaking, crate training, and leash training before going to their new homes. We temperament test the puppies at 7 weeks to try and match them with the most appropriate family. They will have their eyes checked at 8 weeks by an ACVO ophthalmologist. Puppies are started on their vaccinations, vet checked, as well as microchipped before leaving here.
We strive for health and temperament, and of course, overall quality. Our adult dogs have had hips checked with PennHIP and eyes checked by a ACVO ophthalmologist. Prospective owners will be screened. Our pups will be guaranteed for health and temperament and placed with a contract. Pet puppies will be placed with AKC limited registration and a spay/neuter agreement. Show pups will be co-owned and must be shown.
