Meet the founders of Nordic Woodland Cobberdogs. Linn Helen and Therese, childhood bestfriends from the countryside of Norway. Today we live 200 metres away from each other with our 2- and 4 legged family members.
We both come from dog-loving homes, and have always been lucky enough to be surrounded by fury friends. Linn Helen found her passion for Akitas at a young age, and also had the great experience of welcoming puppies to one of her own females. Therese was raised with Punky - A Kerry Blue Terrier who also had puppies in her childhood home.
Allergyfriendly, great with kids, big enough to enjoy a longer hike, great temper, good health history and just a beautiful breed. All these factors was convincing, but the decision became certain when we met a local cobberdog here in our hometown. Everyone who has met one, knows what we are referring to. Its their devotion, their love, their playfulness and their souls-staring eyes. It was no going back for us. Now, we are the lucky owner of three Cobberdogs... (so far...)
The process of adopting our first cobberdogs was down to months of research with good help from fellow breeders in Europe. As this is a new breed in development with limited breeder network around the world, we wanted to be sure we brought new blood lines in to Norway. Based on health of parents, DNA (blood lines), temperament in parents and coat/conformation. We ended with our three first cobberdogs: Billie,(Magnolia) Bolivar (Dog Sweet Dog) and Bobbie (MyCobberMyDog)
Our dogs was mainly adopted as we wanted our own family dogs, and they sure have become fullworthy members of our families. Raised with our children, sleeping in our beds (happened gradually), actively part of every skitrip and family excursion. We believe that dogs should be physically active, mentally challenged and a part of every aspect of family life.
Our name reflects not only the place we live, but also the way we raise our dogs. With the forest and lakes in our backyards, our dogs experience nature and the feeling of freedom everyday. Off-leash walks, swimming in the lake and pulling skiis is our- and their way of life
