Barbara Honore fell in love with Swedish Vallhunds when she saw the breed at Beaudesert Show.  A year later she bought her first Swedish Vallhund from a local breeder.  She now has brother and sister duo Bomber and Hilts who are three and a half years old.

“What attracted us to these dogs was their beauty and when you research the breed, they really don’t have any major problems.”

Swedish Vallhunds are an ancient Viking cow herding breed.  Their short legs and long bodies are reminiscent of a Corgi, with a wolf-like head and distinctive curled tail, giving them a unique but cheerful look.

Bomber and Hilts like to watch television with Barbara and she says they particularly like murder mysteries with a lot of dialogue, with Hercule Poirot amongst their favourites!
