The Lapponian Herder dog was recognized as a breed in the 1950's, though dogs of this type had already been around Finland for hundreds of years. Early Lapponian Herder dogs served as reindeer herders. These dogs were the descendants of the Spitz type herding dog used by the early Sami people in Northern Europe. A thick double coat kept the Lapponian Herder warm while herding reindeer in extreme temperatures. The sturdy, medium-sized body of the Lapponian Herder was perfect for supporting long days of work. The specially formulated dog foods of today were non-existent, and it was likely that Lapponian Herders survived on small game and scraps. Though this diet supplied basic nourishment, it was not necessarily healthy for Lapponian Herders with a sensitive stomach.
