Our Bowkol Swedish Vallhund website is dedicated to demonstrating the Herding potential of our Swedish Vallhunds as working dogs and ‘useful farmer’s companions’.

Properly trained, Vallhunds can be of real practical value in a Smallholding working sheep, goats and geese, in addition to cattle.

We are passionate about the energetic, fun loving nature of our Vallhunds as hardy, healthy, active dogs. They are ‘fit for purpose’, participating in our ‘outward bound’ activities from mountaineering to simple country walks.

See our puppy page for more information.

    Tracking

    In April 2012 Megan & Tim attended the John Rogerson 'Canine Crime Scene Investigation' 4 Day Course: Day 1 involved some basic obedience, recall, scent training & teamwork exercises. Day 2 included training 'stops', 'freeze', & tracking various scents. (Apparently Megan was particularly good @ tracking to 'cadaver' scent - nice!!)
