Questions concerning Norwegian Lundehunds health, breeding, raising, temperment and other various questions with this breed.

Experience in the area

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.


Norwegian Lundehund Association of America - the US Parent Club recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC) Deutsch Club for Nordic Hunds - the German Spitz breed kennel Club Arapahoe Kennel Club - an all breed club in Arapahoe county Colorado Plum Creek Kennel Club - an all breed club in Parker Colorado


No formal education - just learning by doing, seeing and talking to others

What do you like about this subject?

This is a rare breed that many people don't know about so I love informing, and teaching about this wonderful breed.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

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.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

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.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

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.
