"People don't know how lucky they are to have a Swedish Vallhund from you and we dont just receive a puppy, we receive well-rounded, socialised, delightful bundles of mischief who are bred with care and consideration and with great thought put into the breeding to ensure that they have been breed for health and temperament. Thank you Lynne you truly give families wonderful happiness and pleasure with the work you do in breeding such beautiful Vallhunds.  We know that this has been done at considerable cost to you in importing such wonderful Vallhunds to breed from.  We are the grateful recipients of your care and dedication to the Vallhunds in NZ.  Thank you Lynne." - Mishael Logan  


"Keep up the excellent work.  The breed, owners and future owners are very lucky to have  a dedicated group such as the three of you here in New Zealand." - Trish Morrow

Vallarity, Torvall and Vanaheim, along with our International Associates, remain separate identities, however we are all dedicated to working together for the good of the Swedish Vallhund Breed and the preservation of its characteristics, health and genetic diversity, with careful selection and record keeping. 


Working with specialist Veterinarian Clinics, we strive to breed puppies of sound body and mind, health testing parents, which includes: 


* Hip/elbow xrays

* DNA testing

* Annual eye examinations.






Breeding dogs is something we take seriously and do not make puppies without careful consideration of the results, for the good of the breed, now and for future generations.


Mindful of the diversity of this breed, we are the only breeders in NZ to actively include:


* Red colour

* Rare lines

* Bob tail 

* Long tail






In our breeding programmes.

Conservation efforts are being made to preserve rare bloodlines!  


With only 4 lines left - 2 being extremely rare, we believe it is vital to protect the 2 rare lines for the future of the breed.  While stillhealth testing, hip scoring, annual eye examinations and DNA profiling, we are working on a breeding programme that will see these lines expanding back into the very limited gene pool.



A matriline is a line of descent from a female ancestor to a descendant via a line of females. A matriline can be drawn from todays females all the way to the females of the foundation stock: from daughter to mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and so on.

Mitochondria are the power plants of the cell: They supply cell with energy.  In addition to that, mitochondria have their role in regulating the cycle, growth and death of cells.  In a Matriline, the mitochondrial DNA (mt DNA) has descended from a mother to a daughter.  Males also inherit mtDNA from their mother, but they cannot pass it on.  Offspring inherits mtDNA always from the mother, and the genes of the father do not affect mtDNA in any way.  If the matriline is broken, the mtDNA of that line is lost.

There are only two matrilines left among Swedish Vallhunds.



A patriline is a father line, or a sire line as it could be called in the dog world. A patriline is a line of descent from a male ancestor to a descendant via line of males: a sire, his sire and his sire, and so on. Males Y chromosome descents in the patriline.

Out of these 13 patrilines, 11 have died out

Today, there are only two intact patrilines: Mopsens and Tjappos.   Tjappos line is hanging by a thread. If Tjappos patriline disappears, there is only one version of chromosome Y and the DNA it contains left in the breed

The rare 6% Tussi Matriline is only present in NZCH Trendam Busy Being Fabulous - Imp Aust.

The rare 1% Tjappo Patriline is only present in NZCH Vallarity Foxtrot Bravo & Aust. & NZCH Bodeneis Foxy Folkmar - Imp Finland


We have the only breeding Swedish Vallhund's to carry these rare bloodlines in NZ.

  Our Vallhunds success in the show Ring, at Group and In-Show level, the Agility Arena, Obedience and Herding speaks volumes for their quality of type and temperament.  However, it is their social skills, relaxed behaviour and very happy puppy owners that is our greatest success story
