Welcome to the web site of the Southern Finnish Lapphund Society (SFLS).

The Society is fully recognised by the Kennel Club and has been formed to meet the needs of owners and enthusiasts of the Finnish Lapphunds in the South of England.

The aim of the society is to promote and encourage the responsible ownership of Finnish Lapphunds and to provide events and social gatherings for the breed and its owners.

We accept membership from all over the UK and overseas, but our events will always take place in the South of England.

Our members can look forward to a regular quarterly newsletter and a variety of fun events for the breed, including doggy walks.

2015 Calendar Voting Open!

It is possibly one of the most exciting times of the year for us...so make some space in your diary, sit down with a nice cuppa (or my preference... a glass of wine) and enjoy a record breaking 284 fantastic photos of gorgeous Lapphunds!

On behalf of the committee, a massive thank you to everyone who has taken the time to enter photos for the 2015 calendars, we really couldn't do it without you.

Cast your vote now

Don't forget...only one vote per person :)

Judging Seminar 8th Feb 2015

We will be running one of our very popular judging seminars on the 8th February 2015 at New Haw Community Centre. It is open to anyone who just wants to know more about Finnish Lapphunds, from their history to the finer points about the breed.

There will also be a chance for those who want to judge the breed to take the written paper for inclusion to the B list & for those already on the B list the chance to do the Hands On Assessment for A List (once required numbers are met)

We'd love to see you there, if you have any questions, please contact Sue shop@sfls.org.uk, or on our Facebook page. If you'd like to book, please complete the form.
