    There are seven native dog breeds of Norway.

    The breeds traditionally served farmers in their daily work, mainly as hunting and herding dogs. Today these dogs are kept for multiple purposes, serving as family dogs, show dogs, agility dogs – and of course the dogs are still used for hunting and herding.
