About Finnish Spitz
Country of Origin, History of the breed
The Finnish Spitz was brought
from the Volga River Area of Central Russia
to what is now Finland by hunting tribes about
2000 years ago. The Finnish Spitz has been
the national dog of Finland since 1979.
With his pointed muzzle,
perked ears and glorious golden-red to honey-colored
double coat, the Finnish Spitz looks quite
a bit like a fox. The nose and lips are black
and the eyes are dark and almond-shaped. The
topline is level from the withers to the croup
and the deep chest reaches to the elbows.
The feet are round and cat-like.
The plumed tail curls up over the back and down
the side. The dog's body is squarish, with a proud

The coat consists of thick, erect,
medium-length hair with a thick under-layer of straight
hair. The color may be red-brown, or a yellowish-red.
Small white markings are permissible. Puppies are
born much darker and acquire their reddish coat

The Finnish Spitz is brave, friendly,
playful, intelligent, strong-willed, affection-seeking,
protective, lively, curious, a bit dominant and
alert. The Finnish Spitz is renowned as a hunting
dog, and also makes a great companion for family
members of all ages, especially children and older
adults. Reserved and even somewhat aloof with strangers,
but generally good with other pets. The Finnish
Spitz does not like to be petted and fondled, even
as a baby. The breed is very noisy and is aptly
called "barking bird dog" of Finland.
The Finnish Spitz will do okay
in an apartment, even without a yard provided it
gets enough exercise. It is relatively inactive
indoors and prefers cool climates.
The Finnish Spitz needs plenty
of exercise, and need to be taken on daily, long
walks or a jog.
Because of his intelligence, it
is an independent and strong-willed dog and is best
trained with a soft voice and touch. He will easily
become bored with repetitive training and so sessions
should be kept short and to the point, making patience
a must-have for any owner. Obedience, agility, rally
and field training should be understood from the
dog's point of view. The dog doesn’t take
punishments too well. Top trainers have found Finnish
Spitz to be manipulative and sometimes too smart
for their owners.
The Finnish Spitz has a self-cleaning
coat. Regular grooming with brush and comb is still
necessary to remove dead hair. The Finnish Spitz
blows coat or loses its undercoat twice a year.
It is imperative that owners brush out the old undercoat
so the new coat can grow properly. The coat does
not have a doggie odor.
The Finnish Spitz is typically
a very healthy breed, and health concerns are rare.
However, Hip dysplasia, Patellar luxation, Elbow
dysplasia and Epilepsy might occur. Excessive undercoat
can cause skin problems.
