Norrbottenspets

Norrbottenspets

Norrbottenspets is an ancient Swedish dog breed also known as the Nordic Spitz. They were originally used as farming and hunting dogs, but they are adaptable and can be trained for any sport of competition. They normally weigh between 20 and 30 pounds, making the Medium PlexiDor dog door a perfect match.

The oldest known written documentation of the breed stems back to the 17th century, but it is likely they were around even earlier. They are popular for hunting grouse and fox, but some dogs will tousle with animals as large as moose and bear.

These dogs are intelligent, strong, and fast. They’re normally good with children, cats, and other pets belonging to the family, but they have a strong prey drive and should not be off-leash in an unfenced area.

This is a hardy breed. They are considered the healthiest breed in their home country of Sweden based on statistics from insurance companies and veterinarians. They are also ranked as having the third longest life span of all breeds common in Sweden.

The PlexiDor Medium is the right size dog door for a Norrbottenspets.
