After owning Australian Kelpies for almost 25 years, I decided to purchase a Vallhund for my daughter. I could not have chosen a more loyal and faithful companion for her. The breeder told me that the breed grows on you, and so it does, as now we have 5!!
Ausled's involvement with Vallhunds started in the eighties, we remain dedicated to this very versatile and loyal breed. Ausled is a family affair, our dogs are firstly part of the family.
We strive for temperaments that will fit into the home as well as being capable of participating in the life of their owners, obedience, herding, agility and showing are all in the scope of a Vallhund, as is beach and bush walks, swimming and chasing a ball, or just being there as part of the family !
We also pride ourselves on keeping up with the latest DNA diversity testing,
Here at Ausled we are always happy to talk about our Vallhunds. This breed is in general, long-lived and easy to look after, trainable, grooming is moderate.
An endorsement from one of our puppy people, this is what makes it all worthwhile
" I wanted to let you know that because of what you do - the dedication to your dogs and the breed - families continue to be blessed, and lives changed. Today we welcomed our second Ausled puppy - Lyka "Womble" I was amazed at the ease with which she bonded with both us and Elkie. She is bold, fearless and full of love to give. Thank you for all the years you have strived to breed for consistent temperament. "

The Vallhund is close to my idea of perfection, ring me and find out more about The Dog of The Vikings
I fell in love with this breed when I paid a visit to Wynrik Kennels, Breeders of Welsh Pemboke Corgi`s and Swedish Vallhunds, when they moved to Victoria, these little dogs went out of their way for me to notice them, they had an amazing zest for life and energy hooked me instantly.
I was lucky enough to campaign 2 from Kloval Kennels. Aus Ch Kloval Pelle and Aus Ch Kloval Orissa. Upon moving to Queensland I then was given the amazing opportunity to start a partnership with the late but very well respected Leonie Darling ( Dlarah kennels) where I started to campaign Aus Ch Dlarah Kentucky Rain and her brother Supreme Ch Dlarah Little Red Corvette.
This breed is a loveable companion if you put the time in, they are a high energy breed that don`t do well just left to their own device. They are extremely intelligent and respond well to Agility or obedience. If you don`t have the time to train a puppy then this is not the breed for you.
I occasionally have puppies for sale to for ever homes and are sold on a non negotiable desexing contract.

Owning a vallhund was a long held dream of mine, so once I was in a position to do so, I started my hunt. I acquired my first Vallhund, Arche, from Maroki Kennels in New Zealand. Arche has been an absolutely amazing ambassador for the breed. I honestly could not have asked for a better bitch. A well rounded, social, stable girl, who steals hearts and kisses wherever she goes and is a joy to own. Since then, we have added to our Vallhund family with further imported bloodlines. Our dogs have proven themselves in the show rings and are much loved family members.
All our puppies are raised following the Puppy Culture Program and we are passionate about raising well rounded, versatile puppies.
Please feel free to contact me for any information on the breed, If I cant help with your request, I will be more than happy to pass you on to others who can. We are always open to meeting new people, and sharing the joy of the Västgötaspets!
Over many years I have watched Swedish Vallhunds at various shows and researched the breed for several years. I made the decision in 2016 to investigate welcoming a Vallhund into our home, so the journey began. Our first family member came from New Zealand from Osuno. Vallhunds and German Shepherds are amazing together. Our Vallhunds love to play with the Shepherds. At shows and wherever we take our Vallhund they are happy and loves to mix with any other breed of dog around. Nothing bothers them. They love meeting people and always warn us when someone is coming down the long drive often before the GSD's do. I am sure at times these little balls of energy think they are German Shepherds with short legs. They love to explore and check out everything and are such happy dogs to have around. Looking forward to growing our family of Vallhunds, we now have Nitro, Titan and Annie to join our show team. Like our German Shepherds we do all the health testing available, full DNA profile, we are part of the Swedish Vallhund Diversity testing program, all are fully eye tested as well. Our Vallhunds are regular visitors to Bunnings and around our local shops and markets. They are also very regular visitors to the Nursing home my mum lives in. They love visiting and interacting with the residents who also enjoy their visits.
We are only a small breeder and only have puppies every so often. Our lovely little Evie will have some puppies for us in May 2021. The Swedish Vallhund dates back to 18th Century Sweden where the breed was utilised as farm dogs, primarily for herding cattle. The Swedish Vallhund is known in its native land as Vastgotaspets, which means Spitz of the West Goths. This dog is also known as the Swedish Shepherd.
In Sweden it is believed the Vallhund travelled to Wales with the Viking raiders and went on to become the ancestor of the Pembroke Welsh Corgi. The Swedish Vallhund was first introduced into Australia in 1981. AVERAGE LIFESPAN Swedish Vallhunds can live up to 15 years of age. BREED PERSONALITY, CHARACTERISTICS AND TEMPERAMENT The Swedish Vallhund is a chirpy little working dog, in which the herding instinct is still very evident. An energetic breed, the Vallhund is friendly, active, agile and very intelligent. It responds well to training due to its eager-to-please personality and is very trustworthy with children. These dogs do well at obedience, love agility and are accomplished trackers. COMPATIBILITY WITH OTHER PETS The Swedish Vallhund is quite trustworthy with other dogs. CARE REQUIREMENTS Vallhunds are tough, hardy dogs, not subject to any particular ailment. When properly cared for, they are seldom ill. Their low maintenance coat is weather resistant and easily repels mud and grime. They have a major moult at least once a year.

Dogs and other animals have been part of my life as long as I can remember. The first Swedish Vallhund came into my life in 2001, since then the family has grown as it is a delightful breed. With my Swedish background I have been able to research the breed in it's mother country. During my frequent visits I have made valuable connections with Swedish Vallhund breeders and owners that have become friends. Having a great network of Swedish Vallhund breeders/mentor/friends in Australia as well is invaluable. Working together to keep the breed sound and healthy, still able to perform the breed's original work.
There are many reasons to love a Swedish Vallhund and for me these reasons include; great temperament, low coat maintenance, loves to learn new things (useful or other wise), like to take part in all household and garden chores, they are always up for a long beach or bush walk, interacts well with other animals (some guidance will be helpful) The Vallhund also likes agility, obedience, nose work, tricks or anything else you might introduce it to. Most of all though the Vallhund loves to be around his/her people.
Talking about dogs is something I like doing, enquires WELCOME.
I am now co-owned by two Swedish Vallhunds which I purchased from Ausled Knls. in Victoria. They are in addition to my two Bearded Collies. They are Aust Ch Ausled XS Fennec and Aust Ch Ausled Kaa Chil. I have had some success with showing the Vallhunds in South Australia which being the only ones shown here goes to show the quality of the dogs. Drax has had puppy in groups and also a Runner up in group and Chili at her first show was Baby puppy in Show, we have not had the opportunity to do much since then as Covid hit, so showing has been very limited.
Yggdrasil (id-ra-sil) was the Tree Of Life in Ancient Norse Mythology. Swedish Vallhunds are an ancient breed of Nordic dogs. Here at Miyggdrasil (my-id-ra-sil), our aim is to breed strong, confident, healthy pups that are true to type of this majestic ancient breed.

Irrespective of whether the pups go to homes as pets, for showing, for obedience and agility or any other environment, they will always be part of our Tree Of Life and we will always be available to offer advice and support throughout the life of our beautiful pups.
Our puppies are raised in our home at the beach with our Great Dane as part of our family. Fortunately, the Vallhunds have a low maintenance coat that repels mud and grime.They will also be well socialised ensuring confident temperaments.
