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 and is also very smart, has a soft character and is really cuddly.
In February 2016 we started the basic course in search and rescue work and in March 2016 with agility. In 2022 we started Detection lessons. Bosco looks for the smell ‘clove’ and ‘Kong’, he is also very good at this! We are currently following training courses in these dog sports. Bosco also has a very nice herding instinct. We regularly attended lessons in sheep herding at Jaap Kremer (Uffelte). In October 2018 we participated in a competition and he achieved a shared second place!
In January 2018, 2020 and 2023 we participated in an avalanche training in Oberstdorf, Bosco did a fantastic job! Also his two kids Taika & Dyri participated and did great work. Hopefully in 2025 we can go again!
🇳🇱️🏆 29 February 2020 Bosco became NL Champion at the International Martinidogshow in Groningen 🏆🇳🇱️
Bosco is available as a stud for the right girl. For more information please contact me. In addition to a natural mating, it is also possible to purchase his sperm, this is already stored.
