    I have a lappoinian herder puppy, hes such a sweetie! I love him to death, and he is very good. If i were more firm with him abt training and actualy knew how to train him, he could do awesome tricks. He lives on a small farm for now, but doesnt constantly try to take charge like our german shepard, hes very good and has only ever herded once, when he was very helpful. He has been trained to put logs in a sled while the humans do fyrewood, and its s cute. A human throws in a huge log, and he waddles over under the weight of a small stick and puts that in the sled next to the huge one. His coat is beautiful, and even in the dark his white facail markings are visible. the breed is adapted to cold temperatures, so they might not be the best pick if you live in Florida, but otherwise their great and I highly recommend this breed.

    Lapponian herder isn’t exactly eager to please nor is it automatically that obedient like german shepherds and border collies. Lapponian herder is, and it should be, an independent working dog with a mind of it’s own! They are active and need lot exercise and enrichment but not hyper like border collies.
    It can be hard to motivate a lapponian herder but when you do, they’ll be the best dogs you’ve ever worked with! And only after that they’re obedient and willing to work with you (with you – not for you!) . They still may refuse since they aren’t that willing to serve and please,they need to be respected by their owners too. That’s why positive reinforcement methods with a consistent trainer is the best way to train your porokoira.
