    Brief Description: 

    Dansk/svensk gårdshund (Danish–Swedish Farmdog) is a breed of dog that has its origin in Denmark and southern Sweden, but now has become popular all over Scandinavia. 

    Source: Wikipedia

    The Danish-Swedish farm dog originally served to keep the farm free of rats and mice, for which it is equally suitable to today. The dogs are very teachable; and since the breed is small and light, with a lot of speed and intelligence, today they participate in various dog sports like agility, rally obedience, tracking training and obedience.

    Health and Well-Being: 

    Some sources of health information include:

    1. National kennel clubs and breed clubs (see, e.g. Breeding/Health Strategy Documents, below)
    2. Population-level statistics (see, e.g., Swedish Insurance Data, below)
    3. Research articles
    4. Breed club surveys


    Breed Standards: 

    The basis of breed/conformation shows is the judging of pedigree dogs against the 'Breed Standard', which is a picture in words that describes the range of features that are deemed appropriate for the breed.

     

    The major international standard is:

    FCI (Federation Cynologique Internationale)


      Breed-Specific Statistics: 

      1. Swedish Insurance Data

        • Breed-specific information on rates of disease and death from Agria Pet Insurance (Agria Djurförsäkring) is available for many breeds. This breed has information on Veterinary Care and Life Insurance.

        Genetic Panel Screening of Nearly 100 Mutations Reveals New Insights into the Breed Distribution of Risk Variants for Canine Hereditary Disorders

        excerpt...

         

        " The Danish-Swedish Farmdog also provides an extreme example of a breed entering the study with no known relevant DNA tests, and leaving it with four potential new conditions to consider in veterinary care and breeding."
