nutrition &FEEDING

Depending on the size of your dog as an adult you are going to want to feed them a formula that will cater to their unique digestive needs through the various phases of their life. Many dog food companies have breed-specific formulas for small, medium, large and giant breeds.

What you feed your dog is an individual choice, but working with your veterinarian and/or breeder will be the best way to determine frequency of meals as a puppy and the best adult diet to increase his longevity. Clean, fresh water should be available at all times.


Beyond regular weekly grooming, the occasional bath will keep them clean and looking their best. Grooming can be a wonderful bonding experience for you and your pet. Their strong fast-growing nails should be trimmed regularly with a nail clipper or grinder to avoid overgrowth, splitting and cracking. Their ears should be checked regularly to avoid a buildup of wax and debris which can result in an infection. Teeth should be brushed regularly.

They should not be off-leash in an unfenced area and that they can be noisy when they alert to game. The ideal owner provides daily active exercise so their Norrbottenspets can be quiet in the home. They are loving, affectionate, and talkative companions, but some can be uncomfortable with the close restraint of being hugged of held. This breed benefits from basic obedience training and respond best to short periods of play training multiple times a day; training by drill will cause your Norrbottenspets to quickly lose interest in the activity.

Norrbottenspets &HEALTH

Like all breeds there may be some health issues. Some dogs may be faced with these health challenges in their lives, but the majority of Norrbottenspets are healthy dogs.

Working with a responsible breeder, those wishing to own as Norrbottenspets can gain the education they need to know about specific health concerns within the breed. Good breeders utilize genetic testing of their breeding stock to reduce the likelihood of disease in their puppies.
