Briefly in English
We are a small Longhaired Dutch Shepherd Dog kennel in Western Finland. Dogs belong to our everyday life and live with us in the house. We purchased our first dog in 1997, a Bichon Bolognese. The first Dutchie came to the house in 2007, and that's how all started. The FCI kennel name "Tialan" was granted in 2013 and is owned by the father, Sauli, but a couple of other our family members are in the dog world too and are participating to the Dutch Shepherd life of ours.
Dog shows and agility were a part of our lives (we have also tried a little of obedience training). A couple of times we have also visited at dog shows outside of Finland. Through that show hobby, we've got a lot of new friends from here and there. But when we moved to the countryside, our free time is mostly fulled by work there is, so we are not currently so active with dog hobbies.
We think a fine Lh Dutch Shepherd has a well-proportioned body, the coat is beautiful but not exaggerated, and the dog should move smoothly/easily. Our Dutchies have had different characters/temperaments, and the different experiences have taught us to appreciate motivated and cooperative characters. Nice Dutch Shepherd is an intelligent, friendly and active dog that is suitable to be either a dog sports competitor or a family companion dog. Almost whatever the owner wishes - as long as he remembers this is an energetic breed, not a "couch potato"!
In breeding we want to respect the Finnish Breed Club's (Hollanninpaimenkoirat ry) breeding recommendations. It mostly means the longhaired dogs used for breeding should at least have hip and elbow results, be thyroid tested, have passed Finnish Character Test ”luonnetesti” and have an dog show result. We also appreciate dogs whose eyes have been officially examined and have back x-rays done (spondylosis etc). All our puppies will be registered to the Finnish Kennel Club.
We have no current puppy plans.
