The Finnish Lapphund is an athletic dog of a medium size. They have a long topcoat which is coarse and a fluffy short undercoat. The hair on their necks and head is thicker then the rest of their body which makes them seem a little like a majestic lion with a full mane.
Though they exercise a lot the Finnish Lapphund don't require a large amount of food.
The thick coat of the Finnish Lapphund will require frequent grooming and maintenance. At least twice a week you will need to comb and brush their coats at least twice a week and more frequently again when they are shedding. The undercoat is so thick that it can have a tendency to matt which can cause great discomfort to the poor dog.
