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.

SFLS Calendar 2015

Yet again we are getting ready to start the creating of the fantastic SFLS Finnish Lapphund Calendar! As always, we will be accepting photo submissions from the world wide Lappy community, and once the photos have all been collected and processed, we will be opening up the voting to everyone. At the end of the voting period, the top 12 will be collated into the calendar, which should be available in plenty of time for Christmas.

For full details, rules and closing date, visit our calendar page.

SFLS Open Show 2014

We're really looking forward to the next SFLS Open Show at New Haw Community Centre in Addlestone, Surrey. It's been a great venue for our previous shows and we love the friendly atmosphere that comes from having so many Lappy folk in one place.

Whether you're a seasoned show goer or a complete novice, we'd love to see you there.

The schedule is now available.

Spitz in the Park

Well, what a fantastic weekend Spitz in the Park was! If you weren't able to make it, make sure you read Toni Jackon's write up for Dog World to see what you missed.

There will be much more to follow in the next newsletter, so if you're not a member yet, now is as good a time as any to join us.
