Although the Finnish Lapphund is considered a medium-sized dog, their ample coat often makes them appear larger.
Lifespan: 12–15 yr
Height: 16–21 in
Weight: 33–53 lb
Although the Finnish Lapphund does have a thick double coat, their fur requires minimal care. When they are young, the breed’s coat may require more attention and combing, but once their adult fur comes in and the texture changes, regular, once-weekly grooming should be enough to keep it in good shape. All dogs require regular dental care, including at-home teeth brushing and professional dental cleanings, and the Finnish Lapphund is no exception. Maintaining good dental hygiene is important for their overall long-term health.
As with any dog, it’s important to monitor the amount of food and treats that you give your Finnish Lapphund to avoid having them gain weight, especially as they age. Your veterinarian is always a good source to help provide you with appropriate nutrition and feeding guidelines.
