Questions concerning Norwegian Lundehunds health, breeding, raising, temperment and other various questions with this breed.
I have been traveling the world meeting lundehunds, talking to breeders and seeing dogs from around the world. I have bred and own and show Norwegian Lundehunds and have also suffered the heartbreak of losing one to PLE.

No formal education - just learning by doing, seeing and talking to others
This is a rare breed that many people don't know about so I love informing, and teaching about this wonderful breed.
Get people interested in the breed, continue to increase the numbers and other factors of the breed to bring the population up and secure their place in the future.
The lundehund is the only dog with all the unique traits together in one dog. There are lots of breeds that are polydactile, but this breed can use those additional toes, can spread their front legs like a person, can flip their head over onto their spine, pinch their ears shut and have elongated pads for climbing cliffs.
There is a protien losing entropathy that some dogs in this breed get, there are some that call it Lundehund Syndrome, but it isn't strictly confined to this breed, but because people hear this, they think this is the only breed that has it, which is incorrect.
