On October 1st 2014 our second Finnish Laphund Bosco (Valo) was born. Bosco is a son of our Rowan (Simba) and Vita (Lapinlumon Wilhelmiina). A very special experience to ‘create’ your own puppy. Valo means “light” in Finnish. He is the lightest of the 6 puppies, light-footed and lights up our lives 😉
Bosco is an energetic, but a very smart, social and affectionate man. Bosco has passed the Puppy course and Obedience courses. From the age of 6 to 14 months we have followed various Hoopers courses. Bosco loves to work for you. Bosco is also very smart and has a soft character and really cuddly.
In February 2016 we started the basic course in search and rescue work and in March 2016 with agility. We are currently following training courses in these dog sports and sheep herding.
In January 2018 and 2020 we participated in an avalanche training in Oberstdorf, Bosco did a fantastic job! Bosco also has a very nice herding instinct.
At the moment we regularly attend lessons in sheep herding at Jaap Kremer (Uffelte). In October 2018 we participated in a competition and he achieved a shared second place!
Bosco is available as a stud for the right girl. For more information please contact me. For 2021 we have 2 puppy buyers for his offspring.
