When we comb Finnish Lapphund, we should comb and pull it quickly along the direction of its growth. Some people comb long hair dogs only on the surface and ignore the bottom. The bottom hair of the Finnish Lapphund is soft and dense. If it is not combed for a long time, it is easy to form tangles and even cause eczema, dermatophyte, or other skin diseases. Therefore, when carding Finnish Lapphund, we should comb layer by layer, that is, turn up the long hair, and then comb the bottom hair.

If the temperature difference between day and night is large, it is easy to cause a variety of canine infectious diseases, such as canine infectious bronchitis, which can harm dogs of any age. As long as a dog has a similar situation, other dogs that come into contact with it will also have this symptom immediately. The course of treatment is more than one week, and a few cases can be as long as several months. At the beginning of the disease, the dog's symptoms were dry cough, vomiting, or vomiting after coughing, but the spirit and appetite were normal. Generally, there was no fever and no nasal symptoms. After a few days, the dog's symptoms will be a painful cough, increased body temperature, loss of appetite, and runny nose. The treatment of a dog's nest cough needs both symptoms and symptoms. On the one hand, it is necessary to control the cough and other symptoms, on the other hand, it is necessary to kill the pathogen. If the owner found that the dog has this kind of situation, may feed the dog some antiviral oral liquid.

Before we train the Finnish Lapphund to learn the handshake skill, we need to familiarize the dog with this command. We want to make your dog familiar with how to do this, and let him know how to associate. When the Finnish Lapphund hears the command, he will think of shaking hands. In order to ensure that the dog won't confuse the handshake, we must not use other actions to replace it, or there should be no other training during the period, otherwise, it will be affected. When the Finnish Lapphund is hungry, or before feeding, it's the best time to practice shaking hands. We want to choose in the dog more energetic period of training, if in his sleep time, or other things, the dog can not concentrate on training.

Lapphounds help them hunt and reindeer. Lapphounds live in the extreme cold and have a dense double coat of hair. Lapdogs generally include Swedish and Finnish Lapdogs.
