Dog Breed of the Day: Finnish Hound

Finnish_Hound_1

From Dog Breed Info: Friendly, calm and never aggressive, yet energetic in the hunt, the Finnish Hound is used as a hunting dog for hare and fox by following the scent. Eager to hunt in difficult circumstances. He works independently, is a versatile tracker and pursues the quarry with passionate barking. Make sure you are this dog’s calm, but firm, confident pack leader to prevent behavior issues. Proper human to canine communication is essential. This is an energetic working dog with enormous stamina. It needs to be taken on daily, brisk, long walks, where the dog is made to heel beside or behind the human holding the lead.

Given that we’re not in hunting country we haven’t come across too many Finnish Hound owners.   But if any of you out there own a Finnish Hound we’d love to see pictures of your dog.  Also be sure to send in videos or share any great stories you might have.  In the meantime please enjoy this gallery of Finnish Hound dogs and puppies.  Be sure to click “next” beneath each photo to view them all!
