Welcome to Torvall Swedish Vallhunds. Our kennels are situated in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand where we have a lifestyle block and lots of room for our dogs to run and play. Torvall was established in 2005 and we have been breeding Swedish Vallhunds since 2006 - the longest current breeders in New Zealand. We aim to breed happy healthy dogs to the correct breed standard with particular attention to good temperament. Our dogs have done well in the Show Ring at National and local shows and puppies are much sought after. In 2018 our Torvall breeding dogs were part of a worldwide study done through UC Davis (USA) looking at the diversity of the Swedish Vallhund breed. The study showed that while the gene pool is quite small that the breeders had managed it well over the years using pedigrees to maintain good genetic diversity. We can now use the genetic information gained, as an extra tool to select suitable matings to maintain the diversity of the breed.
