The Finnish Spitz, Finland’s national dog, is an excellent hunter. Finnish Spitzes prefer outdoor living and love their freedom. They adore colder temperatures and like to live on the wild side. They enjoy any outdoor action - from chasing birds in the backyard to ensuring that nobody comes close to the property.
To be happy, Finnish Spitzes need cold fresh air and space to roam free. The best activities for them include outdoor activities like forest runs, bush tracking and hunting.
Adjusting to city life would be incredibly hard for this breed and is not recommended. Finnish Spitzes are true watchdogs and love their own voice, and, if confined, they may end up sitting in your backyard barking at the birds for hours.
They will be happy with an owner who has time for them, will give them enough exercise and stimulation and doesn’t mind the barking.
They don’t require any special brushing or grooming.
